The Super Bowl may be over, but we’re still trying to pick our jaw up off the ground after that epic Shakira/Jennifer Lopez joint halftime show. We watched them in awe for all 15 glorious minutes, and while we couldn’t take our eyes off both of their impeccably toned bodies (like, how?!), the real star was J.Lo’s hair. Seriously, it deserved its own Super Bowl ring.
Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton was on deck, curling and teasing her mane up to the very last minute before she took the stage—and it paid off. While it would likely take years and a lot of training to get on Shakira’s and J.Lo’s performance level, we can get our hair to look (nearly) as good courtesy of these five simple products used by Appleton.
STEP 1: Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray
Apply a generous amount of Color Wow Dream Coat Anti-Humidity Hair Treatment to wet hair to create a strong base and add intense shine.
STEP 2: Tangle Teezer Original Detangling Hairbrush
STEP 3: Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Blow dry the hair smooth with a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer on medium heat and medium speed with the styling concentrator nozzle. Use a round brush to create tension on the hair shaft to activate the shine-enhancing and smoothing effects of Dream Coat.
STEP 4: HOT TOOLS Professional 24k Gold 2-Inch Curling Iron
Section hair and curl each section with a 2-inch curling iron, holding for 10 seconds before releasing.
STEP 5: Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Makeup & Wave Setting Clips (6 Pieces)
Using a creaseless setting clip, secure each curl to the root while it cools. Release each pin curl after your whole head has cooled and brush through the ringlets with your Tangle Teezer brush to create more movement. Then detail the look with your 2-inch curling iron to enhance specific pieces for a more lived-in look.
