Last night at the Golden Globe Awards, all eyes were on Jennifer Lopez and her barely there nude silk and lace embroidered gown—but it wasn’t only the sexy dress that was getting the attention—so was her hair.

Her ultra glam waves gave a classic, sophisticated spin to her look. Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin was inspired by old Hollywood look to create a look that work well with Lopez' Zuhair Murad gown. Lorenzo turned to a deep side part to modernize the old Hollywood look of the romantic waves.

Want to recreate J. Lo’s waves? Here’s how Lorenzo did it:

STEP 1: Lorenzo prepped Jennifer’s hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each). Then while hair was wet, he used the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution ($6.99) to reinforce the hair prior to styling.

STEP 2: Lorenzo applied a quarter-size amount of L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel ($8.99) to condition the hair and prep it for being curled.

STEP 3: He curled the hair using a 1 inch curling iron, then gently sprayed L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray ($6.99) to each section, which helped hold the curl and add texture.

STEP 4: Lorenzo pinned each curl to the scalp using a bobby pin. When all curls were created, Lorenzo sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Strong Hold ($14.99) approximately six inches from the scalp. He let the curls set for 15 minutes, then released.

STEP 5: Once the curls were released, Lorenzo took a medium round brush and brushed out the curls to create volume.

STEP 6: He created a deep side part and used bobby pins to hold hair in place. 

STEP 7:  To finish the look, Lorenzo sprayed the L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Strong Hold Styling Spray ($6.99) to add shine and set the curls.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
