Just last week, Jennifer Lopez debuted her new hairdo on Instagram, with a caption that read "short hair, don't care!" Many JLovers are gushing over Lopez's short locks, which according to her personal stylist, Juan Carlos Maciques, Lopez chopped her hair as part of a commitment.

"J.Lo is very passionate about her new role and has a very specific idea of who the character is and what she should look like," he said of the actress' new police drama "Shades of Blue," according to Hello Magazine. "It's a character she's created to suit a specific need, and the cut reflects that."

Maciques also admitted that it'll take some time to get used to a short-haired Jenny from the Block. "Now it's a matter of adapting it to her every day and making it glamorous," he said.

Besides her new TV gig, the Puerto Rican singer is also preparing for her upcoming Las Vegas residency

"I've been preparing for this moment my entire life," the mother-of-two wrote in a statement. "The show is going to be a multifaceted high energy Jenny from the Block party, mixing all aspects of what my fans and I love – dance, hip hop, Latin and pop. It's going to be the show I've always dreamt of creating."
