L'Oréal Paris spokesperson and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has a long, flowing haircut that can be worn in many different ways, as demonstrated by her looks on the promotional tour for her latest film, The Boy Next Door. However, J-Lo's favorite updo, the topknot, is a look she keeps returning to, and it isn't hard to see why.

In praise of the topknot

It's an exceptionally versatile hairstyle, and Jen likes to switch it up by going from sleek knot to textured bun to messy updo, all the while keeping her locks piled high and firmly under control. It's a 'do that can be worn absolutely anywhere because it's so adaptable.

How to style it

Brush your hair through to remove any knots, then tie it into a high ponytail. Twist and pin the pony into a knot, then use a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel to add shine to the top and sides.

Spray your mane with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then blow-dry it in twisted sections. Once dried, shake your fingers through your hair, then gather it into a high pony and twist it into a bun.

After blow-drying your hair, spray it all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Use a comb to gently tease various sections of hair around the crown to create extra lift at the root before sweeping it all up into a messy chignon.
