On Sun. evening, celebrities hit the red carpet for the biggest night in Hollywood. To absolutely no one's surprise, Jennifer Lopez stunned once again, turning heads in a metallic Tom Ford gown that reflected light like a glamorous disco ball. Paired with glitzy earrings and a silver clutch, the head-turning number was a sight to behold, and the 49-year-old proved yet again that age is nothing but a number. So, as to not distract from the statement gown, Jennifer Lopez's Oscars hairstyle was simple and demure, making a case for the timeless blowout in 2019.

After making a splash with a wide-brimmed hat and a long ponytail at the Grammys on Feb. 10, Lopez was clearly reeling things in this time around, letting her caramel-colored tresses shine all on their own. With a masterfully quaffed side part, softly curled ends, and golden glazed highlights, the understated hairstyle was an elegant accent to the truly dazzling gown. Accompanied with a smoky eye, glossy nude lips, and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez on her arm, the mother of two stole the show as per usual.

Chances are J. Lo's flawlessly curved blowout has women near and far ready to phone the salon, but thanks to celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton's step-by-step rundown, you can totally give it a whirl at home. That's right, the master behind the swoon-worthy look spilled all the styling deets, making it that much easier to achieve on your own.

First, Appleton prepped Lopez's wet hair with a coat of Color Wow's Dream Coat Anti-Humidity Hair Treatment, he confirmed in a press release. The stylist followed with a dollop of Color Wow's Raise the Root serum for added volume, before blow drying it straight with the GhD Air Hair Dryer.

After parting Lopez's hair to the side, Appleton produced those epic waves with the GhD Curve Soft Curl Iron, leaving her roots smooth. Following a healthy spritz of hairspray, Appleton finished the look with the Color Wow Pop & Lock Gloss Treatment, which really set things off with an extra dose of shine.

If you still haven't settled on a go-to hair serum, Appleton's pick from Color Wow is definitely worth your consideration. The next-level formula helps restore elasticity and suppleness, forming a crystal clear, high-gloss quality that coats the cuticle and locks in moisture. And with the ability to work inside and out to repair texture and add shine, you can consider this serum the cherry on top of any sultry, voluminous blowout. Bonus: At $20, it's surprisingly affordable, too.

There's no denying a flawless blowout is the timeless secret weapon every woman needs at the ready, and it's not complete without a stellar finish. Ahead, shop serums that'll deliver red carpet-worthy shine, including the exact product J. Lo wore at the Oscars.
