American Idol judge and L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel Jennifer Lopez has excellent hair, that much is a well-known truth. She also happens to be very adept at making casual, relaxed hairstyles look impossibly glamorous, like this topknot.
Seen on the red carpet at a 'Meet the American Idol Top 13 Finalists' event in Los Angeles recently, JLo ramped up the glam factor with a little black dress, bronzed makeup look and some shimmering gold accessories. The topknot helped JLo to keep her look balanced and sophisticated... but still perfect for a star-studded party!
With the weekend just around the corner, this kind of updo is perfect for a relaxed look or something more formal. So, whether you're spending an afternoon doing laundry or heading out to the coolest spot in town, keep it simple with a hairstyle that just works! It is what Jennifer Lopez would (read: does) do, after all...
Get the look
Topknot hairstyles are so practical. Firstly, they're perfect for hiding signs of unwashed roots. Secondly, they keep your hair off your face and neck, and only take a couple of minutes to recreate.
Brush hair through using a bristle brush and gather it all up into a high pony. Secure with a hair elastic and pull it a little tighter against your head. next, twist the pony around into a topknot and secure with bobby pins. Fix the style with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to finish.
Top tip - To soften the look, tease a few strands loose at the front to help frame your face.
And you're done!
