As a fellow wearer of curtain bangs, I couldn’t help but remain completely mesmerized by the sight of Jennifer Lopez’s wispy curtain bangs in a recent announcement for Sephora Mexico. The Latin American branch of the French beauty retailer shared some major developments regarding Lopez’s namesake skin-care line, JLo Beauty, in a video posted to its Instagram on January 5.
In the eight-second video, the singer reveals in Spanish that the wait for JLo Beauty’s arrival in Sephora Mexico’s stores is coming to a close and will officially become available for purchase beginning on January 7.
Now, let’s go back to J.Lo’s gorgeous curtain bangs, shall we? They’re nothing new, of course (hairstylist Chris Appleton gave Lopez the trendy fringe back in May of 2021), but there’s no doubt that they were one of 2021’s most popular hairstyles. Fellow celebrities such as Lily Collins, Rihanna, and Anne Hathaway decided to give the stylish bangs a try last year as well.
If you’re just itching to get some curtain bangs yourself, you might want to keep these tips from New York City–based hairstylist Jordi Martinez in mind before making the cut. Trust me, I’ve had curtain bangs for almost three months now, and the products you use—combined with the way you do—make a world of a difference in keeping that style intact. To reiterate what Martinez previously told Allure, prepare to befriend three things: a leave-in conditioner or serum, a hairspray, and a blow-dryer because these products are key to locking that style in place.
Otherwise, if you’re not willing to put in the effort to styling them, let’s just say that your hair will not look anything like J.Lo’s. As long as you style them in place and use the right products, then your hair will be on its way to looking oh-so J.Lo chic.
