Hello summer, goodbye long locks! Jennifer Lopez stepped out in Santiago, Chile, on Monday with a brand-new flirty 'do: a shoulder-length cut and lots of curls. The "American Idol" judge, who has sported long, usually straight hair for some time, is currently on tour in South America throughout the month of June, so she either decided to try out a drastic style for her time on the road or perhaps she's just really hot. Either way, she looks great. And her boyfriend, backup dancer Casper Smart, certainly seems to think so, too. The 25-year-old held on tightly to his famous girlfriend's hand as they walked in matching black jackets and sunglasses.

Lopez, 42, has been experimenting with her tresses ever since she kicked off her tour with Enrique Iglesias earlier this month. In concert, she had been letting her locks go curly and the ends were blond. Before that, during her time on "Idol," the actress-singer showed off a multitude of hairstyles, while keeping with the same length and honey hue.

Though Lopez hasn't been particularly daring with her hairstyles over the years, she does change things up slightly every now and then. In 2009, she added blunt bangs to her long, medium-brown, straight 'do. In 2005, she chopped her locks off into a shoulder-length straight bob and dyed it a caramel color. And who can forget in 1998 when J.Lo was dating Sean "Diddy" Combs and rocking cornrows?!
