With the 14th season of American Idol due to premiere on January 7, Jennifer Lopez joined her fellow judges this week at a red carpet celebration for the show. Our favorite thing about this? Her cute, copiable half-up hairstyle. To recreate the look on your own hair, just follow the tutorial below!
How to style it
Brush your hair through to detangle before styling, then spray it all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.
Gently tease the mid-lengths and ends with a fine-tooth comb to add volume.
Section off the top layers and secure them at the back with a hair elastic. Use the fine-tooth comb to tease the resulting mini ponytail at the back, and to add any more volume through the lengths of your hair.
To keep frizz at bay, mist your finished look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. This will help to protect your hair from the elements and give you up to 24 hours of great hold.
One of the best things about voluminous half-up styles like J-Lo's is that they look great with curls and waves, too. You can wear the look with some smooth curls or a tousled, wavy finish, giving you three styles in one!
