Jennifer Lopez is one of those lucky, gorgeous people who look great with ANY hairstyle imaginable. Having said that, the American Idol judge does seem to have her favorites, including the topknot. In fact, we have a sneaking suspicion it might be the favorite.

A lot of glamorous people – including Kate Middleton, FYI – develop a certain sense of personal style and then stick to it. This includes hair, makeup and wardrobe choices that are often recycled because they all look so good! JLo's topknot is a prime example. Whether the international pop superstar is attending the Grammys, a charity benefit, a film premiere or an American Idol party, her topknot never seems to let her down. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

Jen's makeup becomes the main focus of her look with this hairstyle, whether bronzed, smoky eyed or minimalist. Her hair is swept back and pinned into total submission, allowing her face to really take center stage. So, if you've invested in a new eyeshadow palette or bold lipstick recently, this is a hairstyle you might want to seriously consider!

Get the look

As you may already know, a topknot is one of the easiest hairstyles on the planet to style after the ponytail.

Step one: Spray dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and flat iron your hair, starting with the bottom layers.

Step two: Brush your hair through then sweep it back into a high, tight pony.

Step three: Twist and pin into a knot then mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. To banish flyaways, spray some more hairspray onto the palm of your hand and smooth over any problem areas.

It really is that simple! Of course, you can switch things up a little by changing the arrangement of the topknot. For example, you could try a high chignon or big bun instead. It's really all up to you! If you're feeling really brave, you could even try a wet-look approach...

Moral of the story - Sometimes a simple hairstyle really is best (and prettiest!)
