We’ve seen beauty looks and behind-the-scenes snaps from Jennifer Lopez’s new music video all over Instagram and now we get to see the finished product. The singer debuted the video during Sunday’s episode of World of Dance and the hairstyles—wow. It’s all about her “Medicine” music video hair today and we can’t get enough. Think an ultra-long ponytail (65 inches!), multiple tier beehive and animal-print hair. Yes animal print and it’s as cool as it sounds.

Chris Appleton was responsible for the on-trend hairstyle. Okay, on-trend might be a stretch when it comes to this kind of hair but animal-prints are everywhere these days: on bold clothes, nails (like cow-prints) and now on hair, as well. Appleton shared a shot of Lopez’s long mane to Instagram that looks like it was taken during the filming of the video. Lopez’s waist-length hair takes on a color-block style with different shades of brown and tan. It resembles a tiger or a cheetah.

“Obsessed with this Animal print hair on @jlo what do you guys think?” Appleton wrote. Fans responded with both heart eyes and cheetah emojis—perfect ones to describe this look. One person hilariously commented that people trying to create this look at home might lead to a few disasters: “Amazing!!! Love love love 🔥I feel a lot of color corrections coming on from the box dye warriors trying to mimic this 😂.”

Celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes, who did the makeup for the video, shared a close-up shot of Lopez where you can really see the colors in her hair. You can also view her unexpected blonde eyelashes up close, which he writes are from Flutter Lashes.

While Lopez’s animal-print hair is extremely cool, it’s probably best left to the professionals to create. But if you’re craving a hair transformation for yourself and don’t have J.Lo money, try one of spring’s prettiest hues instead.
