Celebrity Hairstylist Chris Appleton Shares Tips for JLo Hair


I think I was more excited than @jlo at Versace today. 🌴 As a kid, I did hair to make people look good, but it was always more important that they felt good. It started with me wanting to make my mum look like a Hollywood star…. and ended with me moving to Hollywood. There was a lot of work in between, but for anyone with a dream that seams impossible just go out there and get it.

Celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton has created showstopping looks for stars like Katy Perry, Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande among others. One of his most iconic clients however, is Jennifer Lopez. He has crafted a variety of looks for Lopez, everything from a short curly bob to sleek, long locks. Recently, Appleton shared tips with Forbes on how to create one of Lopez’s most iconic looks – wearing her most iconic outfit, the green Versace dress. Check out his tips below.

Follow these steps to create the look:

  • First, blow out the hair smooth with a three inch big round brush and prep the hair with Color Wow Dream Coat.
  • Then use a 3 inch big curling iron to create a flick at the ends of the hair.
  • Next, make a half pony tail at the crown of the head with the hair around the face.
  • It’s finished off with hair spray around the hairline to create a clean smooth finish. Making sure it sits low, allowing the hair to cascade like a waterfall.


I’m so obsessed with this! 🌴🌴🌴 Thank you @jlo @versace @donatella_versace @gregswalesart @colorwowhair @glamseamless
