If there’s one takeaway from this year’s Super Bowl halftime show — it’s that there’s nothing Jennifer Lopez’s hair can’t take. Between the countless hair flips, the sweat and the treacherous Miami humidity, the 50-year-old star’s thick, bouncy curls managed to stay intact throughout her unforgettable performance with Shakira.

Chris Appleton, the hairstylist behind many of J.Lo’s hair creations, opted for long waist-grazing locks, and set the style with his signature two-prong method.

"[First,] I curl the hair with a one-inch small iron to get a really strong foundation. Then, I brush it out and go back in with a larger two-inch curling iron,” he told Vogue.

To achieve dynamic volume, he proceeded with a hit of the Dyson Supersonic on a cool setting and then locked it all in with the budge-proof spray Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray.

A must-have in Appleton’s kit, this humidity-defying spray is formulated to cover each hair strand with an invisible waterproofing cloak to fight frizz and achieve smooth texture and style. Unlike typical hydrating oils and serums, Dream Coat will not build up, weigh hair down or make it greasy.

After coating the hair with the supernatural spray, Color Wow recommends sealing in the look with a quick blow dry to hold style until your next shampoo.

The Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray has more than 4,000 glowing reviews on Amazon.

“I loved this product from the first time I tried it,” said one five-star reviewer. “I have very fine thin colour-treated hair and it makes my medium length bob feel like I have more hair than I actually have! I use the Colour WOW Dream Coat with the Lift Spray which is a must-have for dry, frizzy hair. I live in rainy Vancouver and this stops the frizz completely.”

“I have been in search of a frizz-fighting product for the past 20 years and have tried hundreds of products and treatments (including keratin smoothing) with little to zero success!” said another. “After reading the reviews on Amazon, I decided to take the plunge and try out the Dream Coat...RESULTS: I will say that this is the best product I have ever found in controlling frizz! It's not perfect but I would say it cut down about 75% of the frizz I usually get in high humidity environments.”


Just moments before J.Lo hit the stage, Appleton treated her with a last-minute touch-up brush using the Tangle Teezer The Ultimate Hairbrush.
