Jennifer Lopez often takes a sleek-chic approach to her hair, but recently, the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson was spotted with a more relaxed braided style. Not only does this softer approach to styling suit J-Lo down to the ground, it also makes the whole braided updo thing seem like a total breeze.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with freshly washed, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out Heatspray throughout, then rough dry.

Step 2
When the hair is only slightly damp, flip your head upside down and blast the roots. This sounds and looks kind of silly, but it's one of the best ways to elevate flat or fine hair.

Step 3
Once it's all completely dry, sweep your hair back into a ponytail. Position it roughly in the middle of the back of your head and take care not to pull it too tight.

Step 4
Braid the pony all the way to the very ends and secure with a small tie. Like Jen, you can use a fishtail technique, or just stick to a regular three-strand method if you're short on time.

Step 5
Fold the pony and tuck the ends underneath, then secure with bobby pins on either side.

Step 6
Lightly run your fingers over the top and sides of your head, going from back to front. This will create some wispy flyaways to soften the overall look.

Step 7
Complete your new braided updo with plenty of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to give it plenty of hold and keep unwanted frizz at bay. That's it!
