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.
