We all know Jennifer Lopez for her signature glowy, bronzed skin, her glossy nude lips, and her honey-colored hair. While she hasn't changed up her hair color in what seems like forever, the singer sure knows how to change its style up every chance she gets.

One day she's walking around with hair down to her lower back and the next she appears at an event with shoulder-length hair. Jen works with some of the best hair stylists in the industry so there's no mystery why her hair is always looking amazing no matter where she goes.

More from MamásLatinas: 31 Celebs with short haircuts that are totally inspiring us to cut it all off 

She was a brunette when she started her career but she left those days behind for a blond-brown and highlighted look that has become her signature color. Other hairstyles that the Second Act actress is known for are her perfectly coiffed ponytails, her high buns and her half-up and half-down hairstyle that so many have tried to imitate. 

But as always, she reminds us that there's only one J.Lo and only she can pull off her glamorous looks the way she does. For the rest of us, the least we can do is try to duplicate her most unforgettable styles--and there are plenty! Jen is always working and every TV or movie role requires a new look and every performance is bound to come with a new style. So scroll through and see some of Jen's most gorgeous and unforgettable hair moments.

Jen changes up her hair length quite a lot. Truth is, it's hard to tell how long her hair truly is. But with the magic of extensions, Jen can have long or short hair at the snap of her fingers. We love the soft curls at the end of this style.
