Jennifer Lopez Just Styled Her Baby Hairs & Moñitos To Perfection

Just as we found ourselves missing Jennifer Lopez's show-stopping content updates throughout quarantine, the multi-hyphenate star is back with her glam squad — and as expected, she's serving lewks. J. Lo took to Instagram to show off her baby hairs styled to cascade below her two moñitos (buns), courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton.

It's a dope moment whenever baby hairs are front and centre, especially for the Black and Latinx communities who have held a deep connection to the style for generations. But J. Lo's artfully-styled swoops are just one of many recent examples of celebrities proudly putting their baby hairs in the spotlight, rather than "taming" or straightening them.


From H.E.R. to Alicia Keys, find all the celebrity inspiration you need — including J. Lo's latest style — to own your baby hairs in 2020, ahead.

"Baby hairs and moñitos," J. Lo captioned her latest photo. Reunited with her go-to hairstylist Chris Appleton following stay-at-home orders, the star's baby hairs were styled in long, cascading swoops that served as the perfect detail to her high buns.

Alicia Keys

For Keys' hosting gig at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, celebrity hairstylist Nai’vasha carefully swept the singer's baby hairs into alternating swoops before adding individual Swarvoski crystals around each one — a sparkling touch to her cornrowed updo. “Alicia and I are obsessed with glorious baby hairs,” the hair pro told Vogue.

H.E.R., who performed at the 2020 Grammys, also took the stage with her baby hairs sculpted along her hairline in a pretty wavy pattern.

Ella Mai

You can count on baby hair queen Ella Mai for daily inspiration. She continuously proves that artistic edges are worthy of any red carpet.

Yara Shahidi

If you're short on time, you can still make a statement by styling just one or two swirls around your hairline — like Yara Shahidi did here.

FKA twigs

You don't need an art degree to beautifully sculpt your baby hairs; just snag yourself an edge control brush and some gel and consider yourself the Picasso of hair.

Laura Harrier

For the prettiest springtime look, make like Laura Harrier and accent each of your baby hairs with a teeny-tiny bloom.

Baby hairs look beautiful braided into a protective style; just be sure to re-braid those pieces as the hair grows to prevent breakage.
