"When I was 17 I moved from the Bronx to Manhattan to pursue my dreams of becoming an entertainer," she wrote in the caption.

Jennifer later proved she was just as talented as singing, and has eight studio albums to date and has won over 212 awards during her career, including ten Billboard Latin Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and two World Music Awards.

While she regularly experiments with her look, Jennifer's hair is naturally wavy, and the star previously revealed it's when she feels most confident.

The 53-year-old told People that she feels at her best "when my hair is curly and I'm a little bit tan".

J-Lo is a huge fan of hair extensions

The star added that her trademark bun was inspired from her upbringing in the Bronx: "Everything about growing up in the Bronx influenced me and is still with me today. I'm still a ponytail, bun-on-top-of-your-head girl, which is all very Puerto Rican Bronx."
