Jennifer Lopez was serving leg at the 2018 American Music Awards, but her hair was effortlessly cool. The messy ponytail was created by Celebrity Hairstylist Chad Wood. Wood’s inspo for JLO’s look was to create a sultry pony, with voluminous loose waves and a sexy side part to compliment her flirty dress.

Jennifer Lopez’s AMA Hair How-To

Starting with wet hair, I used my ghd Air Hairdryer ($199) and Natural Bristle Brush size 3 ($45) to blow the hair smooth while still giving it a little lift at the root. Then I took my ghd Platinum+ Styler ($249) to polish up around the face and ends by smoothing flyaways. Because the styler has rounded edges, I was able to bend the hair to create texture and movement. Next, I used a texturizing spray on the root and mid shaft of the hair to give it more texture and hold. Then I took my ghd CURVE Classic Curl Iron ($199) to create bigger waves, wrapping the hair around the barrel. Once the hair was fully curled, I pulled it up into a high pony and teased it into the perfect shape. I then finished the look with a spritz of hairspray.
