Jennifer Lopez took home the People's Icon Award at Sunday night's People's Choice Awards, honoring her many successful years of being an actress, singer and dancer. While her career continues to reach new heights, one thing remains constant: the honey brown haircolor we've all come to know and love courtesy of Redken celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham

"I like to keep her hair as close to her natural color as possible," Cunningham says. "She has remained consistently gorgeous throughout every stage of her career with a perfectly highlighted honey brown color. 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. For me, fabulous color and a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service is a must before hitting the red carpet," she adds. 

Here's how Cunningham achieves the color:
