The base for Lopez's structural braids is a sleek ponytail; Appleton prepped her wet hair with Color Wow's Dream Coat serum and Cult Favorite hairspray before using a Dyson blow-dryer to smooth hair back and away from her face.
Lopez couldn't trust just anyone to create such an important look, so it's no surprise that she leaned on the shoulder of her go-to hairstylist Chris Appleton to construct the style worthy of renaissance royalty.
Though Lopez arrived at the red carpet looking straight out of a 15th-century painting, she's attending the ceremony as a nominee for playing an exotic dancer in last year's blockbuster movie Hustlers.
To polish off the look, Appleton tamed pesky flyaways by gently brushing them backward with a toothbrush and evened out Lopez's hairline with pigmented hair powder.
Sure, that ball gown, complete with a massive golden bow, is nice and all, but it's her mile-high braided updo that's got everyone falling over themselves to capture the moment.
