You've probably heard the name Benjamin Button before. Either from the short story by well-known US author F. Scott Fitzgerald or from the 2008 Hollywood film with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
Benjamin Button is a very strange guy. Because it ages backward. That means year after year he doesn't get older, but younger.
Well, Benjamin Button's story is fictitious and not at all real. But there seems to be a tiny bit of truth behind the effect of backward aging. At least if you look at superstar Jennifer Lopez.
The American singer and actress with Puerto Rican roots is now 51 years old and feels younger, fresher, and fitter than 30 years ago.
Is it because of their children? Your fiancé Alex Rodríguez? Or is it a sophisticated fitness and beauty program? Only Jennifer Lopez herself will know that.
What we can see, however, is that the superstar's hair plays a large part in its backward aging. The 51-year-old did everything right again with her latest trend hairstyle. Because it looks fresh, cool, modern, and also incredibly hot.
Also because she parted with her long hair and is now wearing a trendy short hairstyle. What?!?
The star hairstyle is a short pixie cut with a fringed pony and longer tips on the neck and ears. JLo's longtime hairstylist Chris Appleton, who was also responsible for this trend hairstyle, describes the hairy look in his Instastory as a “90s inspired wet look crop”.
In fact, the short hairstyle exudes cool retro vibes, which is mainly due to the fringes around the forehead and neck. But the dark approach that peeks out between the singer's blonde hair also creates a lot of 90s vibes. Then there are the huge statement earrings that Jennifer Lopez wears in the pictures, as well as the natural make-up look with a neat glow.
With the incredibly ingenious and hot trend hairstyle, it is all the sadder that it will almost certainly be a wig. Because the pictures of Jennifer Lopez were taken as part of a shoot for the American beauty magazine Allure.
But who knows? Perhaps Jennifer Lopez gets a taste for her short-trend hairstyle when looking at the pictures and actually reaches for the scissors. At least it wouldn't hurt your backward aging...
