If you tuned into the Super Bowl last night—or strategically switched over from your Netflix binge right in time for the halftime show—there's no way you missed Jennifer Lopez's epic, head-turning (literally) performance. Um, can we please talk about that hair?!

In an interview with Vogue, J.Lo's hair stylist, Chris Appleton, said that he and the singer had some fun testing different looks the week leading up to the Super Bowl. On top of preparing her locks for anything they might encounter— sweat, wind machines, dancing, and hair flips included—the stylist also had to take into consideration Florida's infamous humidity. "Miami is the worst place for hair," Appleton joked. "As effortless as it looks, it's a lot of planning to make sure the hair moves right in those six crucial minutes."

After quite a few trial runs, the two settled on loose, voluminous curls that were the epitome of flawless. But how exactly did Appleton nail stunning, sexy waves that didn't go limp or frizzy during J.Lo's dance-crazed, mash-up performance? Well, by relying on three simple products that you can—believe it or not—shop on Amazon, of course.

To prevent Miami's humidity from wrecking havoc on J.Lo's perfect waves, Appleton prepped the A-lister's locks with Color Wow Dream Coat ($28; amazon.com), a hair serum that "puts a protective waterproof layer on top of the hair," he noted. The hardworking product guarantees sleek, silky strands that are basically immune to moisture, thanks to ingredients like polysilicone-29 and chamomile, which protect against humidity. Unlike other hair serums, this one will not weight down your tresses or make them feel oily, and the effects can last up to three days—even through shampoos.

The stylist relied on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($400; amazon.com) to dry and style Lopez's tresses. To achieve a dynamic shape, Appleton placed clips at the root and then hit the whole head with cool air from the blow dryer to set it in place, he told Vogue.
