The resemblance is uncanny.

Waist-length waves, sleek bobs, and snatched buns are just a few hairstyles synonymous with Jennifer Lopez. Not to mention, over the course of her career, her signature cuts have become some of the most-requested looks at salons. But while we all turn to J.Lo to get ideas for our next haircuts, where does J.Lo look for hair inspiration? If her latest hairstyle is any indication, it's Ariana Grande

Lopez's hairstylist Chris Appleton posted a photo to Instagram on Mar. 12 with the Hustlers star's long waves styled in a half-up half-down hairstyle, complete with two space buns and a center part. The style also gives a better view of the '90s chunky highlights the star got earlier this week. 

"Jlo spice," Appleton captioned the post, along with the chili pepper emoji. "Couldn't fit the full buns in lol — swipe to c [sic] the full look. #dreamcoat"

This hairstyle might be a completely new one for J.Lo, but it's a look that Grande has worn often. That being said, the similarity between the styles might be more than a coincidence. Appleton has worked with Grande in the past, specifically around the singer's release of her Sweetener album.

Along with the platinum low ponytail she wore on the album cover, Appleton helped Grande with the evolution of her signature high ponytail by reinventing the style with lavender streaks, metal hair rings, and yes, space buns. 

Whether or not Grande was the real inspiration for J.Lo's unexpected hairstyle. We gotta say, the Y2K hairstyle looks damn good on her.
