Jennifer Lopez's Hair - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Hair

Jennifer Lopez never fails to turn heads. With a unique combination of bold style and natural beauty, this Latina superstar has captivated audiences all over the world. To get Jennifer's smoldering look, we asked celebrity stylist Rodney Cutler, co-owner of the Arrojo Cutler Salon in New York City, to share the secrets to her style so you too can be the center of attention. Rodney suggests this style for shoulder-length hair cut in balanced layers.

STEP 1 Towel dry clean hair until it is damp but not wet. Spray a volumizing tonic from the roots to the ends, then comb through with a wide-tooth comb to ensure an even application.

STEP 2 To begin styling, you will need a blow-dryer with a nozzle attachment and a natural bristle, medium-width, round brush. Separate the lower section of hair closest to the nape of the neck by securing all the hair above it with clips.

STEP 3 Starting with a 1- to 1½-inch section of hair, begin to blow dry by using the brush to lift the hair from below at the base of the scalp. Slowly pull the brush through the length of the hair to the ends. Don't let the ends of the hair slip off the brush, rather let them "sit" just on the edge. Once the section is completely dry, roll it back up and under on the brush and let cool for about 30 seconds to help set the style. Repeat this process, working in layers from the bottom up, until the back of the head is complete. Then move on to the sides, using the same technique.

STEP 4 The front sections should have a little extra lift at the roots. To achieve this, use the brush to lift the hair up and then back a bit at the roots. Finish the process by letting the hair cool on the brush in the same manner as step two.

STEP 5 Using a flat iron on the hair will give it a funkier, edgier look. Apply the iron 1/3 of the way up the hair shaft and work straight down toward the ends.

STEP 6 To finish the style, emulsify a small amount of hair wax by rubbing it between your palms. Flip your head upside down and work the wax only through the ends to give the hair a look that Cutler describes as "more lived-in and modern."
