When sizzling hot American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez’ chocolate top knot was tightly wrapped at the back of her head, it made a striking hair statement.

Although not everyone agreed with Jennifer’s top knot hairstyle choice, when combined with her ultra-sex David Koma form fitting black long sleeved gown, the superstar looked sophisticated and edgy.

Hair Knots Have Evolved

Hair knots are not just for the ballerina, busy mom or health club visitor.

As Jennifer has proven many times over the course of her career, a bun – topknot or not – can be sexy, beautiful, trendy or even elegant.

A key ingredient of Jennifer Lopez’ elegant top knot is her spectacular milk chocolate hair color carefully kissed with subtle highlights and low lights.

It’s no secret Jennifer Lopez has logged some major chair time with NYC hair color guru Rita Hazan.

Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin created Jennifer’s sky high top knot on day old hair.

To guarantee a perfect top knot, Martin applied a firm holding hair gel to Jennifer’s hair before pulling all of her hair up and off her face into a very tight, high based ponytail.

Martin left a small section of hair free to wrap at the base of the pony to cover the pony elastic.

Twist the ponytail hair in a clockwise or counterclockwise position until it’s completely twisted and bending over upon itself.  Pin into place.  Spray with firm holding hairspray.

To secure the hair around the ponytail, be sure to apply a little hairspray or gel onto a clean hairbrush and brush on top of any loose strands.

Summary

Jennifer Lopez knows how to make a great entrance.   A great gown coupled with an amazing top knot is a fabulous way to glam up any appearance.

8.  Separate hair into individual 2-3″ horizontal sections and roll with large electric rollers back from the hairline as if creating a Mohawk.  Roll the sides separately.

Note:  If you prefer you can use a 2″ curling iron and work around the head from side to side creating spiral curls on 2-3″ sections.  After removing either the curlers or iron, re-roll with fingers and pin against the scalp to allow curls to cool and set.

9.  Before leaving the house unpin the curls.  Finger pick and arrange curls.  If you wish a looser look bend over at the waist and gently shake strands.  Gently pull on random strands to loosen.
10.  Finish with a spritz of hairspray or apply 1-2 drops of shine serum to the palms of your hands and massage together.  Turn the palms over and lightly brush over the top of your strands.
