Jennifer Lopez not only pulled double duty of hosting and performing at the 2015 American Music Awards yesterday, but also bedazzled the audiences as well as fans worldwide with her sexy outfits (which just grew sexier as the evening progressed), flawless make-up and a bevy of chic hairstyles!
J. Lo pulled off a sleek long bob, a top knot, a low ponytail, a high ponytail, a tousled shag and a low updo – all in a SINGLE event and in a matter of three hours – leaving us bnoth awe-struck and inspired!
So, here we are, calling upon our favorite L'Oréal Spokesmodel (yet again!) to gain some swoon-worthy hairstyle inspiration for medium-length hair. Read on to find out how you can style your long bob for work or for a night-out on the town...
1/ Sexy Blowout
The songstress chose to pair her sheer, black lace outfit with a wavy blowout – a hairstyle that amped up the oomph in her look. A slight tousle and glimmering highlights lend her hairstyle a playful appeal.
Get the Look
If you wish to replicate J.Lo's wavy blowout, spritz your smooth, frizz-free, damp hair generously with heat protectant hairspray and blow-dry it using a medium-sized round brush to direct your strands downwards. When your hair is completely dry, apply a small amount of strand-smoother serum spray on your palms and smooth it through your hair to lend it a soft shine. Scrunch your hair with your fingers to create a tousled effect and spritz some hairspray to set the style for longer wear.
2/ Top Knot
Last evening, J. Lo spoke about watching the AMAs as a child, looking pretty as ever in a sparkly ombre-pink dress with a flared skirt, her hair pulled up in a casual top knot.

To replicate J.Lo's top knot with your long bob, flip your head down, gather all your hair near the crown and secure it in a high ponytail using elastic. Twist the ponytail around the base of the elastic and tuck in bobby pins to create a top knot. Spritz your hair generously with strong hold hairspray to set flyaways and set your hairstyle for longer wear. Secure all loose strands (especially at the back of your head) with some more bobby pins.
3/ Sleek & Straight Loose Hair
J.Lo may be the queen of effortlessly sexy hairstyles, but she looks every bit as incredible in sleek and straight loose hair. Last evening, she wore her straight hair with a middle-part – a simple hairstyle that perfectly complemented her golden gown with a plunging neckline.

Recreate J.Lo's sleek, straight long bob hairstyle by working in a tiny amount of strand smoother serum spray through your tresses to detangle all knots and make your strands soft, smooth and shiny; flat-iron them in sections and spritz some fine hold hairspray to make the straight, silky effect last longer.
