Since her appearance in The Late’90s, Vogue December cover star Jennifer Lowe Pez has been helping define the pop star genre. During her impressive tenure, she has gone through multiple transitions. Some are marked by nicknames (Jenny from the block, J Lo), others by careers (iconic albums and movies, Vegas residency). Fortunately, a quick glance at Lopez’s iconic bombshell brunette can help pinpoint the era in question.
Lopez determines the beauty of the Millennium Bug at its origin. From the sweet ’60s-style half updo to help create the that Versace moment, to the face-framing part ponytail that continues to get in the present tense Favored, multi-hyphenated mane moves have long dictated what the rest of us do. Straight ribs, romantic top knots and (in recent years) waist-length waves—Lopez’s lengths are a visual expression of unabashed femininity and all the bold beauty that goes with it. Here, take a look back at J Lo’s best hair moments of all time.
