It wasn’t just Jennifer Lopez’s cleavage-baring Zuhair Murad gown that made heads turn at the 2015 Golden Globes on Sunday Jan 11 — it was her perfectly tousled waves that completed her ultra-glam look!

Tracy Von Vechery, of IT Hair Care Products, called the 45-year-old’s look a “perfect 10.”

 “Mixing a retro ’60s vibe with a little bouffant lift on top, Jennifer channeled a modern, sexy look with long and glamorous cascading waves,” Von Vechery explained. “The exaggerated volume tresses added total pizzazz to her red carpet style. She rocked it!”

Von Vechery explains how to get the same look at home, without a glam squad like the American Idol judge’s.

Here's what you need:

 - Clip-in hair extensions (same color or lighter than your own natural hair)

– Backcombing brush

– Sectioning comb

– Sectioning clip

– 2'' barrel curling iron

– IT Hair Care's Freeze IT Original Freeze Hairspray

– IT Hair Care's Abyssinian Oil

Step One:

Start with natural, air-dried hair.

Section off a 2-cm piece from the front of your hair to pull back over the hair extensions, secure with a sectioning clip. (Clip-in extensions are optional, but for big sexy volume a la J.Lo’s Golden Globes look, they are a definite must.) Affix the extensions onto the back of the head directly adjacent to the scalp. The higher you clip them the more volume you'll achieve, so for a sexy sky-high look, place them towards the crown of your head.

Step Two:

Once in place, unclip the section of hair from step one. Backcomb the strands for a little extra umph, then lightly spritz on a layer of IT Hair Care's Original Freeze Hairspray for a long-lasting hold that will keep your hair perfectly coiffed all night.

Step Three:

To add the finishing touches, work in a few drops the hydrating IT Hair Care's Abyssinian Oil just at the bottom couple of inches of your hair.

Next take your 2-inch barrel curling iron and carefully add a few soft curls throughout the ends of your hair. Be sure to start the curl from the mid-lengths of your hair to achieve that iconic ’60s vibe. Gently work curls loose with a soft brush or fingertips and voila, an instant bombshell old-but-new classically beautiful look, just like J.Lo!
