Let's be honest here: Most of us would be lying if we said Jennifer Lopez has never given us hair envy.

From the time she was a Fly Girl on In Living Color  in the '90s, wearing a curly lob, to the early 2000s where her signature style was sleek, ultra-long, and honey blonde, up until now with everything from braided buns to asymmetrical bobs, the star has quite literally given us three decades worth of hair ideas.

While we can't say that all of her styles are simple to re-create at home, J.Lo's go-to hairstylist Chris Appleton just gave us the tea on one of his favorite brushes to use on the star, which could help make things easier. And the best part is that it's under $20. 

Appleton exclusively tells InStyle that he swears by The Ultimate from Tangle Teezer, because of the tool's unique versatility. 

"It has long teeth and soft tips that glide through the hair to smooth it without snagging," he shares. "It [also] brushes through the curls to create bounce and movement without pulling too hard."  

The bonus: Weaves and sew-ins are no problem. "I love that it sweeps up every piece of hair and gently glides over bonds and hair extensions to style hair without snagging," Appleton adds.

If you're interested in taking The Ultimate for a test run, the good news is that it works across all hair textures — from super straight type 1 strands to the thickest of type 4 curls. So the next time you're in the mood to sport one of Lopez's signature styles to a big event, you know exactly what tool you'll need to have handy.
