Jennifer Lopez’s Sleek Top Knot Hair Tutorial | InStyle

When your job requirements include shaking your assets on stage for the entire world to admire, it’s important to make sure your hair stays in place. And we’re guessing that’s exactly why Jennifer Lopez so often chooses to slick her hair back into a topknot. The star not only rocks the look while dancing, but also on the red carpet, and while seated behind the American Idol judges’ table. So how can you replicate the totally versatile bun? InStyle’s special projects editor, Stephanie Samson, asked celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkins to take her through the process.

sooooo we just going to ignore the fact the she just pulled the comb straight from her hair and put it in her mouth??

Jennifer Jahns says:

This person could not possibly be a professional. She’d lose her license for putting the comb in her mouth. I can’t believe you didn’t even edit that out.

R Ree says:

Is she really using viseart for hairlines?!

Ord Grill says:

Oh my… they either had a bad chemistry or both are trying to have that teenager attitude: “I’m want to be cool so I must act annoyed” anyway, I learned something new, just a bit painful to watch
