The eternal, ever generous source of hair inspiration that is Jennifer Lopez has done it again, with a new look that hair stylists across the globe are likely to be tasked with recreating. J.Lo's been alternating between a sleek, shoulder-length bob—or lob, if you insist—and long, flowing waves over the past year, but her latest 'do chops things up a bit.

Courtesy of celebrity stylist and Kardashian favorite Chris Appleton, Lopez is now sporting an asymmetric, layered bob with a deep side parting, and it looks like my pledge to grow my hair out is completely out the window.

Appleton posted a photo on Instagram of J.Lo's new style, complete with blonde highlights or "money pieces" framing her face (a look recently championed by Beyoncé.) And Lopez is evidently pretty thrilled with the outcome: She shared her own photo of the look, featuring both Appleton and makeup artist Scott Barnes. Speaking of Barnes: Scott, any product details available on that glossy lip?
