Get the Formula for J.Lo's Honey Brown Hair


After Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show, it seems like everyone wanted to get their hands on J.Lo's beauty routine. At 50 years old, the singer put on an electric performance and looked incredible while doing so thanks to her talented glam squad—makeup artist Scott Barnes, hairstylist Chris Appleton and Redken colorist Tracey Cunningham.

"J.Lo has always been a honey brown. Her perfectly highlighted hair has remained consistently gorgeous throughout every stage of her career. Sometimes I add in some more blonde highlights, which blend in so well with the honey and light brown, but I really love her both ways," Cunningham said. "Her skin is so perfect, creamy and golden, so the lighter colors add depth to her overall color. To maintain this look, I suggest seeing your colorist every six weeks for a touch-up and Redken Shades EQ Gloss to keep your color looking fresh, bright and with fabulous shine.”

Here Cunningham shares the magic formula:
