It’s Officially Happening: Jennifer Lopez Just Debuted Chunky Highlights

Remember when we said chunky highlights were going to be making a comeback this year? Well, Jennifer Lopez couldn't wait any longer and just made it happen with her new thick-highlighted hairstyle.

J Lo's go-to celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton, posted a series of photos of the star showing off the twin space buns he created on her, but we couldn't stop staring at the fresh color. Lopez's hair is a mix of warm, light brown with caramel-blond highlights.

George Papanikolas, colorist and Matrix brand ambassador, said the trend is perfect for longer, curly and wavy hair types — just like J Lo's. "It really comes down to strategic placement," Papanikolas said. "There should be more depth at the root area, with the highlights framing the face, and spaced out throughout the hair to give lots of contrast."

When her hair is pulled back in a sleek bun, you can really see the contrast of color. Ahead, see more photos of Lopez with the chunky-highlights trend.
