When it comes to stunning hairstyles, J. Lo is a constant source of inspiration. We specially love her updos, most of which are ideal for women with shoulder-length to long hair. We begin this week with an exclusive hairstyle inspiration, which the actress cum L'Oréal Spokesperson has borrowed from one of the most prominent style icons of the '50s and '60s – actress Brigitte Bardot, known for her glamorous blonde mane with all its tousled and teased glory.
Ideal for straight and wavy hair types, this retro updo is a terrific work hairstyle that you can wear just about anywhere else with as much ease. What's more – the cool and messy tousled bun looks even better when paired with a sweet set of bangs.
Here's a step-by-step tutorial on how to recreate Jennifer Lopez's Brigitte Bardot-inspired tousled updo:

Get the Look:
Spritz your well-conditioned, detangled hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. This product will instantly boost your strands and create extra lift at the roots of your hair.
Using a fine-toothed comb, gently tease your hair around the crown to create height and volume.
Trace out a soft hair part of your choice and set your bangs in place, shaping them to frame your face. If you don't have bangs, you can simple part about 2 inches of your front hair, sweep it to the sides and secure it behind your ears using bobby pins.
Using your fingers, rake up the rest of your hair and secure it into a high ponytail using hair tie.
Divide your pony into 3-4 medium sections and wrap each section around the base of the elastic, securing it with bobby pins.
Gently tug at hair sections with your fingers to loosen up your updo and lend it a tousled finish.
Spritz your tousled updo generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray for long-lasting durability.
... And you're all set to go to work or to a party!
