Jennifer Lopez Hair Secrets


Jennifer Lopez

When I first met Hollywood Mane Man Ken Paves many years ago I begged him to spill the beans on his longtime hair client, Jennifer Lopez.

He told me the gorgeous star loved the highest quality products from lines such as Phyto, Rene Furterer and Leonor Greyl.

Thus it was no surprise when I picked up the November 2009 issue of Elle magazine and saw an interview with celebrity hair maestro Juan Carlos Maciques who also works with Ms. Lopez when she's in New York.

Juan holds court in celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan's eponymous salon. Rita has been the hair color genius behind Jennifer for many years.

Juan dished that "before blowouts" on Jennifer's locks he applies Phyto 9. He explained "not only does it add shine" it also "enhances texture" for a natural finish. Having using many a tube of Phyto 9 on my own hair over the years I can concur with Juan's notes.

Although Phyto 9, and it's lighter companion, Phyto 7, are not the least expensive leave-in conditioning creams on the hair care market, they are worth their weight in gold and will last and last. That's the key many hair consumers may be missing while trying to balance the budget. While other leave-in creams may be less expensive, they aren't as high quality and don't last anywhere near as long.

What else does Juan use on the lovely Jennifer to give her hair that amazing shimmer? He uses another one of my favs, Leonor Greyl's Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice. Although less well-known that the Phyto line, Leonor Greyl is considered one of the very top hair care lines along with Rene Furterer and JF Lazartique.

Juan explains Leonor Greyl "ensures that styles survive the after-party." He noted the product "gives hair amazing body that lasts."

Another secret about Leonor Greyl is that it's the official hair care line of No Doubt. Which in itself speaks volumes.


In summarizing his relationship with Jennifer Lopez the popular Juan told Elle Magazine "she is not just a client, but also a muse. She loves to change and play dress-up. She is very willing to experiment and is glamorous."

In a Clairol Professional survey 33% of the respondents reported that they preferred to have their hair colored in a salon rather than risk doing damage at home. 50% of the participants said they liked their colorists best because of friendliness while only 38% valued good advice about haircolor or the fact that the colorist kept up on the latest trends.
