Transformation alert: Jennifer Lopez—queen of long, flowing hair (opens in new tab) and big, dramatic ponytails (opens in new tab)—has just shared a selfie of her natural, woke-up-like-this locks sans her usual extensions, as pointed out by Cosmopolitan UK (opens in new tab). In the photo, posted to the @jlobeauty Instagram account (opens in new tab), the actress and singer is rocking a bob (or is it a lob??) that is a lot more casual than some of her other recent looks, styled with loose beachy waves. The whole vibe is making me want to march into a salon ASAP and demand "one J-Lo, please."

Although Lopez' hairstyle in the selfie is what caught many people's eye, it was actually posted to promote THAT STAR FILTER (opens in new tab), a "complexion booster" formula from the star's eponymous beauty line. And true to form, it's undeniable that J-Lo is positively glowing in the pic, grainy iPhone photo as it may be. She is wearing minimal makeup, a light pink lipstick, hoop earrings and big, metal-framed sunglasses. The cherry on top? A gold bedazzled tumbler that says "BEAUTY" on it. Yes, please.

If Lopez regularly gives you hair envy, you can thank her stylist Chris Appleton (opens in new tab), who is responsible for some of her iconic looks, including these space buns (opens in new tab)this mermaid hair (opens in new tab), and these curtain bangs (opens in new tab) (always on trend (opens in new tab), eh, Chris?). The star and stylist are basically besties, TBH.

Appleton is super coveted by the rich and famous right now: He also works with Kim Kardashian (opens in new tab) and Dua Lipa (opens in new tab)and he generously shares his best tips and tricks for a gorgeous mane on Instagram, so you can apply them at home. Maybe I don't need that salon after all.
