Not only is her birthday coming up in a few days, but this week we also celebrate Jlo’s union with Ben Affleck - in true Y2K revival fashion, twenty years after their first engagement.

A lot has changed since then, and whilst Jennifer’s 53rd birthday makes me feel old and tired, she couldn’t look any fresher and more stunning.

When you have someone like Chris Appleton in your team, it’s only natural that your hair and hair extensions are always looking fabulous (and obviously, being Jennifer Lopez helps), but let’s see more in detail the iconic serves that JLo’s blessed us with in the past couple of years.

Tousled And Natural

In 2021, to celebrate Mother’s Day, JLo decided to dedicate a reel to her own mother, Guadalupe Lopez, and to her own journey through motherhood - featuring her daughter in the video too. For the occasion, she celebrated her puertorican roots and natural beauty by sporting a tousled, rounded bob. Whilst this look may not be for everyone, the hairstyle worked magic on these three generations bound together by the sacred link of motherhood.

Subtle Money Piece Hair

Like many other celebrities, Jennifer couldn’t resist going back to her iconic highlights and adding a touch of modern fashion to them. That’s why her and her styling team decided to hop on the Money Piece train, a trend that crawled its way to our feed directly from the 90s. Inspired by stars such as Geri Halliwell (Spice Girls), this hair colour trend consists of chunky, face-framing highlights in contrast with the rest of the hair colour.

Space Buns

Space buns broke the internet around 2014, proclaiming themselves as the hairstyle that any IT girl of the time had to try. Now it’s more of a night out look or the perfect ‘do for a festival; summerish, peppy and playful, this look tends to grow in popularity during the hottest season (often accompanied by braids and funky colours for a boho-chic finish). If you’d like to give it a go, you can always use two clip-in ponytail hair extensions and wrap them up in two fluffy buns.

Slicked Back Half-Up, Half-Down

The half-up, half-down hairstyle is a timeless classic. Sometimes less is more, and a superstar like JLo - who is never afraid of daring with her looks - knows this very well. That’s why switching looks is always a good choice. This time, her tresses are straightened and tamed in a classy, lowkey and minimal half-up, half-down hairstyle - without all the fuss of a big bouncy blowout and perfectly curled up curtain bangs.

Baby Braids

Also known as braided tendrils, this trend rose to fame in recent times - surfing the wave of the Y2K revival. As seen on celebrities such as Margot Robbie, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid - this simple yet gorgeous hairstyle can go with many other options: think of beach waves, a fluffy 90s blowout or - like in Jennifer’s case, a sleek high bun.

Need more length to achieve this style? You can always resort to single-piece real human hair extensions to braid and blend in with your natural hair!

The Silky Bob

A classy middle-part and short length can go a long way. When playing the role of Kat Valdez in her movie “Marry Me” (should we have seen this one coming?), Jennifer Lopez rocked this perfectly sharp bob with elegance and style. Playing around with hair extensions allowed the superstar to go back to hairstyles such as her iconic bun and longer lengths. If you like to often switch things up between short and long hair, then clip-in hair extensions are the product for you! Available in over 60 shades, get yours now here.

The High Ponytail

What else? When talking about iconic hairstyles, the high ponytail is probably the most popular one ever. Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez and other celebrities have made this their signature look, but not without a little bit of help.

In most cases, to get a full, long and plumpy ponytail these celebrities have resorted to a clip-in wrap-around ponytail hair extension. Braid it, flip it, curly it; there are so many ways to play around with a ponytail! If you thought this is a celebrity-exclusive, don’t worry. Available in three lengths and over 60 shades, you can get your ponytail hair piece here.

Long Beach Waves

Textured hair is all the rage during summer, and long mermaid-like tresses are an iconic look to wear on the beach, on a night out and many more other occasions. Whilst getting your beach waves sorted can be quite easy (you can learn how to curl your hair with a hair straightener here, or read more about how to curl hair and hair extensions with other products, such as a waver, here), achieving a real-life sea witch flowy length can be tricky. Luckily, human hair extensions can provide a solution. Get yours now from our range.

Messy Bun

Artsy, chic and seemingly effortless: these are only a few of the words that can be used to describe the gorgeous messy bun. Over the years, the popularity of this hairstyle has significantly increase - making it skyrocket the charts from “alternative Tumblr girl hairstyle” to a chic, popular option on and off carpet for celebrities and mere mortals alike. This was also the go-to hairstyle for Hailey Bieber on her big day with Canadian singer Justin Bieber. Did you know that you can learn how to get a messy bun with a clip-in ponytail hair extension?

The Claw-Clip Updo

Ever wondered what happened to that claw clip you used to wear with pride and joy twenty years ago? If you found it collecting dust on a bathroom shelf, give it a rinse - it’s time to wear it back. A trendsetter like Jennifer knows that fashion, just like history, likes to repeat itself. And as claw clips and butterfly clips are coming back, it was only a matter of time before we saw her rocking a spectacular summer updo with the aid of a trusty claw clip. Want to know more about this style? Then look no further than this blog about how to put your hair up in a claw clip.

Conclusion:

Always flawless and a true queen of the performing arts - from her incredible dance moves, to her vocal range and acting skills - Jennifer Lopez is still on top of her game and is only going to stun us more in the upcoming future. Bursting at her seams with energy, class and beauty, we’re happy to celebrate her upcoming 53rd birthday and wish her and Ben all the best at their second shot at love.
