Jennifer Lopez Wore 50-Inch Hair Extensions

Jennifer Lopez Wore 50-Inch Hair Extensions at the Billboard Latin Music Awards
 
   
 
Jennifer Lopez has recently been making headlines for her upcoming 70-piece makeup collection with Inglot, but today it’s not about her foray into cosmetics. Nope, it’s all about the down-to-there hair she debuted at last night’s 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards. If you’ve kept tabs on the 2018 Time 100 performer, then you’re well aware that just days ago she was sporting waist-length hair. While us everyday folk would have to rely on biotin and a lot of prayer to see any major growth for the most part, J.Lo simply turned to hairstylist Chris Appleton for a hairstyle that was equally as eye-catching as her latest hit single, "El Anillo," is ear-catching. The result? The ultimate long-hair-don’t-care hairstyle that’s left us all right alongside Leslie Jones, cheering for and getting our lives thanks to Jenny from the block.
 
J.Lo simply turned to Hairstylist Chris Appleton
 
With other stars — Kim Kardashian West, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj among them — taking a note from the throwback style, J.Lo is the latest celebrity to hop on the Cher hair revival. Rocked by the singer in the '70s and '80s, these ultra-long strands are renowned for looking equal parts flower child and full-on glam. While ultra-straight, super long strands look relatively carefree, achieving that length is truly a feat. Thank goodness for wig makers and extensions, which help folks embrace the look without the wait.
 
Let 'em talk. We'll just be here focused on getting our extensions to look as fab as J.Lo's did last night.

Jennifer Lopez has never done things by halves when it comes to onstage performance. She’s very energetic and can dance the night away when given the opportunity. But well, that wasn’t the only highlights of the pre-Super Bowl concert over the weekend in Minneapolis.
 
Bringing a dose of glamour to the night, the singer made sure she wowed the crowd with a series of eye-catching outfits changes — think about head-turning bodysuits, super high-slit dress, and of course, intimidating leopard prints’ catsuit

Jennifer Lopez the Robin Hood of Strippers in New Movie Hustlers
Jennifer Lopez Will Play the Robin Hood of Strippers in New Movie Hustlers
Jennifer Lopez Will Play the Robin Hood of Strippers in New Movie Hustlers
 
Few people in Hollywood work quite as hard as Jennifer Lopez, so it's no surprise she's top billing in a movie called Hustlers—though you might be a tad surprised about the role she'll actually play.
 
According to a press release, Hustlers will be an adaptation of a New York magazine story about a group of New York City strippers who imagine themselves as something akin to modern-day Robin Hoods, scamming their wealthy high-end clientele and keeping the money for themselves.
 
Though it's not confirmed, we all but assume Lopez will play a character based on "Samantha Foxx" from the article, the mastermind behind the scheme whom the magazine describes as "a single mother from the Bronx" who mixed a "Jessica Rabbit" body with "a mercenary streak worthy of Gordon Gekko." It's a little bit racier than what we're used to from Lopez's acting career, and yet perhaps she's the perfect person to play the role.
 
Whatever the case, the film's director, Lorene Scafaria, is ecstatic about the casting. "There is no other actor who could embody this raw and dynamic character with such complexity, humanity, and intelligence. It's always been her," she said in a release. "She's f*cking Jennifer Lopez."
 
Though Scafaria promises the film will be about a lot more than "J.Lo as a badass stripper."
 
"The film is an empathetic look at women and men, our gender roles, what we're valued for, what we've been told is our value in every movie, TV show, every corner of culture," Scafaria said. "Men have been told they're worth the size of their bank accounts. Women have been told they're worth the symmetry of their faces, their bodies, their beauty, and that's what this film is based on. The rules of the club are the rules of the world."
 
Produced by Annapurna and Gloria Sanchez, Hustlers is set to be a rare dip into independent and more artsy cinema for Lopez. As an actress, she's mostly skewed toward studio films and more mainstream fare. However, she did make a streak of indie films in the middle of the 2000s (An Unfinished Life, Bordertown, and El Cantante), so maybe with the ending of her NBC cop procedural, Shades of Blue, she's ready to get out there and stretch her legs as an actress again (we guess in this case in more ways than one).

Jennifer Lopez will be given MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for visual achievements in music industry
 
Today, it was announced that Jennifer Lopez would be given the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for her visual achievements in the music industry. (It is quite the award, boasting recipients like Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, and Rihanna.) Lopez debuted a look that couldn’t have been more celebratory of the news. En route to MTV studios in New York City, the entertainer stepped out in a crisp white shirt-meets-dress. Her saucy choice? Instead of pants, she sported slouchy denim Versace over-the-knee boots.
 
Lopez hasn’t been shy about showing her skin as of late. She recently revealed her washboard abs at her birthday celebration with Alex Rodriguez; while on the street, she showed off her six-pack in a teeny crop top. And why shouldn’t the 49-year-old show off her abs or legs? She has worked hard for her career, as well as body. Now is the perfect time for her to be proud of both.

Jennifer Lopez swapped pants for denim boots and the internet went wild
Important Question: Is J. Lo Wearing Boots or Jeans?
Important Question: Is J. Lo Wearing Boots or Jeans?
 
 
Jennifer Lopez swapped pants for denim boots and the internet went wild
Jennifer Lopez just found a creative way to wear denim during the hot summer months.
 
But they're not just made of denim: Each boot is its own jeans leg, complete with a back pocket and a belt..
It’s unclear whether the pockets actually hold anything, but the belts are a stroke of genius for anyone who has ever struggled to keep slouchy boots from sliding down the leg.
 
J.Lo paired the boots (or are they deconstructed pants?) with a crisp, white oversized shirt dress, a black bag and futuristic shades. It was kind of like her own unique take on the popular "lampshading" trend.
 
The “World of Dance” judge — who recently celebrated her 49th birthday with an age-defying bikini pic — also sported a gold necklace spelling out “Jennifer” in all caps, in case you forgot who the boss is.
 
Reactions to the boots were passionate on social media, with some people questioning the unusual shoes but others calling J.Lo a style genius.
 
Lopez has definitely always been a trendsetter, not a follower, so who knows — maybe denim boots will be popping up everywhere this fall!

Hair Extensions
 
Hair extensions are a great hair accessory. They allow you to try a new ‘do with little commitment. You can go from long to short or short to long and back again. You can experiment with colors or textures different from your own. Or you can use them to add volume to beef up a skimpy mane.
 
Some women wear extensions as a protective style while transitioning from chemically processed hair to their natural hair texture, so as not to compromise their healthy hair goals in the process. “The trend of wearing curly/textured extensions really ties into the overall natural hair movement and the desire by women to have options that fit within, rather than disrupt, their personal style choices,” says Ngozi Opara, certified hair manufacturer and founder of Heat Free Hair.
 
Others, such as celebrities, models and entertainers may wear extensions as a protective means to shield their hair from the daily stresses that it endures on a film set, photo studio or stage. Whatever your reasons for wearing extensions, choosing the right type for your needs and maintaining them properly is key.
 
 
Hair Extension Considerations
“The first thing you should do when considering getting extensions is that you should have a consultation with a professional hairstylist who specializes in extensions to determine the best match for your hair and desires. Bring in reference photos. You should have an idea of the style that you want and you can discuss with the stylist the best types of hair you would need,” says Amoy Pitters of Amoy Couture, a celebrity extension expert whose star clientele includes Joan Smalls, Naomi Campbell and Chanel Iman.
 
Depending on the type of extensions that you get, they can either last you a few months or a few days.
 
 
Tips for Maintaining Your Extensions
Treat them the way you would your real hair. “Naturally textured virgin hair extensions should be treated and cared for the same way you’d treat your own natural hair. Regularly washing, moisturizing and detangling your textured hair extensions is key to extending the life of the hair,” advises Opara.
 
Dry your hair well. Hair that hasn’t been dried properly can lead to scalp issues, including fungal ones. So if you have thick hair, be sure to clip your hair in sections and dry your braided sections thoroughly.
 
Don’t neglect your real hair. “Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed,” warns Pitters.
 
Remove them in a timely fashion. Extensions will damage your hair if left in too long. Pitters recommends redoing interlock sew-ins every 6 weeks and the braided sew-in version every 8 to 10 weeks.
 
Avoid oils. If you have glue-on bonded extensions, oils will break down the extension glue. And that is something that you don’t want to happen until you are ready to remove your pieces.
 
Take a break now and then. Allow your natural hair and scalp to breathe from time to time. Relieve the stress placed on your hair and scalp by waiting a week or two after removal of your extensions before getting them replaced.
 
 
Synthetic Hair vs. Human Hair Extensions
The main difference between synthetic hair and virgin hair extensions (human hair that has been untreated and uncoated) is that synthetic hair is artificially manufactured hair, while virgin hair is natural human hair provided by donors. “Quality and authenticity is very important when purchasing virgin hair extensions. So, it’s important to make sure you purchase from a reputable brand or retailer that can provide quality assurance,” says Opara. “Another difference between the two is the price and quality; synthetic hair is available at lower price points, but it does not last nearly as long as virgin hair extensions,” continues Opara. Virgin hair can last up to a year with proper care and maintenance. Human hair extensions can also be heat styled and colored, while synthetic hair can not.
 
And be aware that some women are allergic to synthetic hair. So if you opt to go the synthetic route, ask your stylist to attach a test strand before you fully commit. If done correctly, weaves can look gorgeous and unbelievably real.
 
 
Long-Term Hair Extension Options
 
Long-Term Bonded Extensions
Extensions are fused by a hairstylist to a few strands of your natural hair with a heat-activated, keratin-based polymer. This option allows for greater versatility and movement, but can be very damaging if removed improperly. Sew-In Extensions
 
Sew-In Extensions
Interlock Version: The hair weft is sewn down directly on top of your hair. Pitters utilizes this method for very fine or stick straight hair that can not support a braid. .
 
Braided Version: Pitters employs this method on clients with thicker manes or textured tresses. Hairpieces are sewn onto cornrowed tracks
 
Tape-In Extensions
Small hair wefts are taped to your roots. This type of extension is great for fine, blond hair because the point of attachment is barely visible.

"It wasn’t just Jennifer Lopez’s cleavage-baring Zuhair Murad gown that made heads turn at the 2015 Golden Globes on Sunday Jan 11 — it was her perfectly tousled waves that completed her ultra-glam look! Tracy Von Vechery, of IT Hair Care Products, called the 45-year-old’s look a “perfect 10.
 
“Mixing a retro ’60s vibe with a little bouffant lift on top, Jennifer channeled a modern, sexy look with long and glamorous cascading waves,” Von Vechery explained. “The exaggerated volume tresses added total pizzazz to her red carpet style. She rocked it!” Von Vechery explains how to get the same look at home, without a glam squad like the American Idol judge’s
 
Here's what you need:
- Clip-in hair extensions (same color or lighter than your own natural hair)
- Backcombing brush
- Sectioning comb
- Sectioning clip
- 2'' barrel curling iron
- IT Hair Care's Freeze IT Original Freeze Hairspray
- IT Hair Care's Abyssinian Oil
 

Step One:

Start with natural, air-dried hair.

Section off a 2-cm piece from the front of your hair to pull back over the hair extensions, secure with a sectioning clip. (Clip-in extensions are optional, but for big sexy volume a la J.Lo’s Golden Globes look, they are a definite must.) Affix the extensions onto the back of the head directly adjacent to the scalp. The higher you clip them the more volume you'll achieve, so for a sexy sky-high look, place them towards the crown of your head.

Give Alex Rodriguez some credit. Who else sinks from superstar to scourge of his industry and uses his time in purgatory—in this case, a record-setting yearlong ban from baseball for use of performance-enhancing drugs—to diligently build a second career?
 
“When I was a child, I had two dreams. One was to be a major-league baseball player. The other was to be a CEO,” says Rodriguez, who, in this exclusive Fortune Q&A, talks publicly for the first time about how he turned a career crack-up into training for what’s next.
