Jennifer Lopez put on an energetic and choreography-filled performance during Sunday night's Super Bowl halftime show — and her hair remained flawless throughout the entire spectacle.
If you're wondering how the superstar kept her strands looking shiny and frizz-free in the Miami humidity, her hairstylist Chris Appleton revealed that he reached for the Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray.
He previously described it to TODAY as a "light as water" spray that's basically an "umbrella for the hair." (He's also the brand's artistic director).
Appleton explained that the product creates a wetness shield — if water touches Dream Coat-treated hair, your strands will deflect the moisture.
To use the frizz-fighting spray, he recommended applying it from roots to ends on damp hair and blow out drying with a large round brush for a sleek finish.
A bottle of the humidity-proofing spray can also be spotted in his current Instagram story, right alongside the trusty Tangle Teezer brush that helped evenly distribute the spray throughout Lopez's locks.
Appleton was also behind the straight, swishy bob that both Lopez and Kim Kardashian West donned in 2018, which the internet eventually dubbed "glass hair" because of its shiny, smooth texture. When we saw the instantly iconic looks, our first question was ... can it stand the humidity once the warmer months arrive? His answer: absolutely.
"Using the right product to get the right finish to the hair is essential. That razor-cut kind of bob only really looks its best when it's super-shiny and super-glossy," Appleton said.
We had other questions as well, like the secret to creating the perfect ponytail to get your hair off your neck. Appleton also has a solution for that, which makes sense since he works with ponytail princess Ariana Grande.
The key is in the proper ponytail holder, and Appleton swears by an affordable brand called Blax.
"They're almost like rubber and they grip on the hair," Appleton said.
Once he's secured a tight ponytail either high atop the head or at the nape of the neck, he often attaches a clip-in hair extension to the ponytail for a fuller look, then wraps a piece of the clip-in around the elastic to finish the style.
Try these hair extensions for an easy — and temporary — style switch.
