Um, hello! Jennifer Lopez sporting Charo's signature Shih Tzu hairstyle? Genius!

What's there not to love about the photos from her and Pitbull's music video shoot for the World Cup song "We Are One (Ole Ola)" on Thursday in Florida?

The "Jenny from the Block" singer covered all her beauty bases.

She started with huge, voluminous textured waves and pulled up just the front section into a spunky ponytail. We also applauded the songstress for holding back on the eye makeup and rocking a clean face with a matte orangey coral lip instead. This look really let J.Lo's natural beauty shine!

Get the Look: We know Ms. Lopez worships at the house of Oribe so we assume she used the iconic celebrity stylist and his products to achieve this look. Start by applying a dime size of Crème for Style to damp hair. Then, spray Maximista Thickening Spray from roots to ends for added thickness and texture.

Blow out hair section by section with a large round brush and set with a few large Velcro curlers on the top. Tip: Brush and dry hair sections towards your face to achieve extra volume at the roots.

Next, section off your hair and beginning with the bottom layers, run a flat iron down section-by-section (start three inches from roots), twisting the flat iron back away from your face on some pieces and towards your face on others. Make sure you leave out the ends to get that sexy, piecey look.

Let hair cool for 15 minutes, then break up curls and spray Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray and tousle hair to deconstruct the look and give it that beach air volume. For maximum volume, spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the roots and quickly blast roots with the hairdryer. Flip head and tousle hair.  Complete your ‘do by pulling the front section of hair up into a small ponytail and securing with a hair elastic.


To get J.Lo's statement lip, start by exfoliating lips with a sugar scrub or toothbrush. Tip: Mix a small amount of baking soda with water to create an exfoliating paste. Rub lips with paste in a back-and-forth motion and rinse.

Next, line the entire lip area with a flesh-colored lip liner or one that matches the exact color of your lipstick.  Then, with a lip brush, apply a matte orangey red lipstick like MAC Lipstick in So Chaud.

We have to say, not only did this look make us excited to see the singer's new music video, but we may also have to check if old Love Boat episodes are on Netflix. Cuchi-cuchi!
