From leather pants to fringe and crop tops, nearly every style from Cher’s iconic look has returned. The most recent? Her silky, waist-length hair — a.k.a. “Cher Hair” — which stars like Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Jourdan Dunn and many more have adopted the past few months. But they haven’t all magically grown their hair down to their hip bones overnight. Actually, they all turn to celebrity hairstylist and Color Wow brand ambassador Chris Appleton to get the look.

“The long hair ‘Cher hair trend has become such a big look this season because it’s such a striking and confident look,” Appleton tells PeopleStyle. “It’s eye catching, it’s sexy and it’s strong. It’s really iconic.”

Now he’s showing you how to get it, too, in the “How It’s Done” video (watch it above).
