I have been wearing my hair for many years. Half up. My hair style at school, it somehow passed through my youth, never to return. And while the classic look has never really gone away, I certainly haven’t seen it on other people as much as ponytails and loose, completely down style. It’s as if we’ve forgotten the lucky ones who are half hair. But sometimes, it takes us just a small moment – or a big superstar – to remind us of our favorite, lesser, more globally flattering beauty.

She is wearing shiny, neutral make-up with shiny, bare lips and prominent cheeks, a beautiful wine-colored manicure, and the cutest highlighter yellow, ribbed dress. The only thing that really catches the eye, however, is Lopez’s hairstyle.
Its long, honey-shining, straight but full hair is mostly down, with a very tip-top layer – which starts well over its temples – though not very firmly. The slender ponytail is neither high nor low, and when viewed from the side, it is slightly raised horizontally.
