How to get Jennifer Lopez’s ultra-glam Golden Globes waves
Recreate her romantic waves with a step-by-step guide from her hairstylist.
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.

beauty tips and style advice
Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?
Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
