The only thing that changes more often than Jennifer Lopez's relationship status might be Jennifer Lopez's hairstyle. And while the world figures out exactly what's going on between Lopez and her ex-beau Ben Affleck, her stylist, Chris Appleton, gave an update on her hair.
In a post on Instagram, Appleton showed off Lopez's new-but-old curtain bangs and long, straight strands.
Lopez last debuted the flowing fringe back in October, but the 2021 update got a new detail, according to Appleton. Instead of whispy, light-as-air bangs, Lopez's latest look is blunt and bold.
"What do you think to today's look Blunt Curtain bangs on JLO?" Appleton captioned his gallery, which shows the new bangs from a few angles. The length grazes Lopez's legendary cheekbones and sweeps out with a few longer pieces. In the photos, Lopez is wearing a simple white T-shirt, very '90s dark lipliner, and her signature smoky eye and glowing skin.
Lopez's new bangs put her in very good company. Celebrities like Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez, and Halle Berry have all embraced the versatile, low-maintenance style, which is also becoming a major phenomenon on TikTok. And, since Lopez appears to be embracing nostalgia with her on-again flame, it only makes sense that she'd choose a throwback hairstyle to accompany the headlines.
Naturally, a major life change like a called-off engagement calls for bangs — and Lopez just showed that, like everything else, she does it her own way.
