J.Lo's Blonde Highlights Look So Different Than Her Previous Lob
It looks as if Chris Appleton has worked his hair magic once again. On Jan. 13, the celebrity hairstylist posted a photo on his personal Instagram showcasing Jennifer Lopez's newest hairstyle, specifically highlighting — no pun intended — J.Lo's blonde highlights and the look's glamorously long length. (Oh, and Lopez's stunning engagement ring, which reportedly is worth over $1 million.)
Although it's hard to tell from just one picture, it looks as if the multi-hyphenate's new 'do features notably lighter highlights that pull more platinum than her previous dark gold ends. Lopez's roots and lowlights look lighter as well, creating a multidimensional yet seamless blonde that'll no doubt be copied by fans all spring long.
That said, Lopez's latest look is drastically different than the short lob haircut she rocked throughout the end of last year, or even the honey-hued style she was spotted with at the 2020 Critics' Choice Awards just one day prior. Perhaps a pale golden blonde has been the goal all along: Follow all of her hair transformations from the past few months, and you can see how Appleton has slowly introduced more brightness and lightness gradually over time (taking a momentary pit stop for Lopez's retro Golden Globes hairstyle).
Fortunately for fans, J.Lo's 2019 lob will live on forever in the new GUESS Spring 2020 campaign — of which Lopez is the star. The campaign features Lopez's shorter hair with plenty of volume and curls. "The vibe this time was a mix between an Italian film star from the 60s, mixed with Madonna from the 80s, mixed with Sofia Loren,” reads a quote from Lopez herself in the caption of GUESS' Instagram post.
And as you know, protecting the color of fresh highlights (or any type of blonde) takes work, regardless of length. Ahead, three products to shop for those looking to lighten up their hair for spring à la J.Lo.
Formulated to echo the sheen and dimension of mother of pearl, this shampoo deposits color-correcting violet tones that neutralize blonde brassiness.
Keep a warmer golden blonde in check with Christophe Robin's moisturizing, pH-balancing hair mask (that just so happens to gloss and tone, too).
