Jennifer Lopez's Big Braided Bun Has Already Won The Golden Globes

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Not to be dramatic or anything, but Jennifer Lopez just shut the 2020 Golden Globes red carpet all the way down. Sure, that ball gown, complete with a massive golden bow, is nice and all, but it's her mile-high braided updo that's got everyone falling over themselves to capture the moment. Lopez couldn't trust just anyone to create such an important look, so it's no surprise that she leaned on the shoulder of her go-to hairstylist Chris Appleton to construct the style worthy of renaissance royalty. Thankfully, Appleton shared some of his styling process with ishonest via a press release. And — no shocker here — this look is not suited for the faint of heart (or head).

The base for Lopez's structural braids is a sleek ponytail; Appleton prepped her wet hair with Color Wow's Dream Coat serum and Cult Favorite hairspray before using a Dyson blow-dryer to smooth hair back and away from her face.

Creating the braid itself seems rather simple: separating the pony into two even sections, braiding them both, coiling and stacking one on top of the other, and securing it all in place with U-shaped pins. Given the sheer size and volume of the braids, though, we're going to go ahead and guess Appleton had some assistance from extensions.

To polish off the look, Appleton tamed pesky flyaways by gently brushing them backward with a toothbrush and evened out Lopez's hairline with pigmented hair powder.

Though Lopez arrived at the red carpet looking straight out of a 15th-century painting, she's attending the ceremony as a nominee for playing an exotic dancer in last year's blockbuster movie Hustlers. She'll also be presenting an award during the ceremony, however, it'll be hard for anyone to pay attention to the awards themselves when we all win the award of another iconic look from Lopez.
