We’re Obsessed With J Lo's Signature Honey Brown Hair From The Red Carpet

Jennifer Lopez on the People's Choice Awards

Between singing, dancing, and acting, Jennifer Lopez is without a doubt a triple threat—and while we always admire her work on stage or on-screen, we also look forward to seeing what look she’ll debut on the red carpet next. On November 15, Lopez took home the People’s Icon Award at the People’s Choice Awards, and all eyes we’re on her highlighted, honey brown hair color

While Lopez has slayed honey brown hair for years, the warm-toned shade has been trending all year long, so there’s no better time to recreate her stunning color. Lucky for you, we finally found out the secrets behind her gorgeous hue. Tracey Cunningham, celebrity colorist and the creative genius behind Lopez’s honey brown hair, helped her get ready for the big night. 

Jennifer Lopez People's Choice Awards 2020 Blonde Highlights

According to Cunningham, she tried to keep the starlet’s hair as natural-looking as possible, adding blonde highlights throughout her honey brown base. 

“She has remained consistently gorgeous throughout every stage of her career with a perfectly highlighted honey brown color,” Cunningham says. “Sometimes, I add in some more blonde highlights, which blend in so well with the honey and light brown, but I really love her both ways.”

Cunningham says the real secret to gorgeous hair color, is completing every service with Redken Shades EQ hair gloss. The ammonia-free, low-commitment formula can provide results in just 20 minutes, leaving your mane looking and feeling shinier and healthier. 

“For me, fabulous color and a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service is a must before hitting the red carpet!” Cunningham says.
