The Secret To J. Lo’s Shiny Hair Lies In This Cult-Favorite Styling Spray
Jennifer Lopez rarely reveals the products behind her impeccable beauty looks. After decades of being prodded, the singer-turned-actor has only recently started to unveil the miracle ingredients that keep her fresh and glowing — in the form of her own makeup and skincare lines, of course. Jennifer Lopez's hair secret, however, still lies in the hands of a celebrity-favorite brand.
J. Lo has relied on Oribe's Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray to keep her hair sleek and shiny for years. You heard it from the stylist who's been doing the former pop singer's hair since her "Jenny from the Block" days: the ultimate hair guru, Oribe Canales, himself.
The renowned hair wiz whose namesake brand took the industry by storm died at the age of 62 on Sun. after he had been receiving cancer treatment in Manhattan for a month. The icon's death has left all of Hollywood grieving, it seems, especially the Latina actress who spent more than 10 years in his chair.
Lopez posted a touching tribute to the "hair god," as she called him, to her Instagram on Thurs., saying they "fell in love with each other" and "traveled the world together," and calling him "a true artist" who "made [her] feel special and beautiful for so long."
Now, while the industry mourns, Oribe's legacy lives on through all those miracle products that have become a staple in so many people's morning routines. Among the most popular is the spray that he, himself, credited as the key to achieving Lopez's immaculate hair on a tight schedule.
"No matter what look we're going for, I need to properly prime her hair to get the desired result — fast," the late stylist once told Shape, so he turned to the Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray because it helps to minimize drying time. The lightweight mist aims to soften and strengthen hair while hydrating it with argan oil at the same time. Its UV-absorbing molecules help protect from the sun while providing a glossy finish that lasts all day.
You can bet the celebrity hairstylist used the formula on his other famous clients, too, including Meghan Markle, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Cher, among others. His brand has acquired a cult-like following, including the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and more.
Simply spray this silky miracle product onto your damp hair — primarily the ends and hairline — and blow dry with a round brush to get Jennifer Lopez's coveted look (or something like it, at least).
