There’s a reason American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is one of the most powerful celebs on the planet — the lady knows how to keep her style fresh!

While stepping out with boyfriend Casper Smart in Santiago, Chile on Monday during a break from her summer tour extravaganza, J.Lo debuted a shorter, curly hairdo which has our jaws on the floor.

The singer may be 42, but she sure as heck doesn’t look it!

We love the curls and think it gives Jen a more natural and youthful look, harkening back to the late ‘90s when first she turned heads.

What do you think of Jen’s new ‘do? Yay or nay?
