The Lowdown on Selena-Hair

Selena Gomes had a birthday last month, and folks were really super excited to see her new, young-adult look. Selena-hair as been a well sought-out style over the years, but it seems that every time a client asks for the new Selena grandeur, the superstar ends up changing her look. Since this idol has had such an amazing guise among teens, we thought it would be nice to take a look at some Selena-trends to keep the young gals up to par.

Back in the Disney years, Selena was a little less experimental with her hair shades, opting for much more subtle hues. The pop-celebrity played it super safe as she slowly made her way into stardom by adding gentle shades of golden browns throughout her hair, and then, finally going for an ombre hairstyle. This allowed Selena to show off her long locks, and it gave her the option to throw in some waves for attending special events.

Fast-forward to 2011, and folks saw Selena launching super experimental hair; she began her transformation by chopping her hair into a dull lob (a.k.a-long bob), but she also kept her delicate blonde ombre shade, which subtly came across as an “I’m-still-a-teen” decree. After six months, Selena went all out and dyed her hair an amazing light blue shade, which awarded her a grown-up punk image.

After her experiment with blue, she tried out many other girlish-hues, including light-blue mermaid hair and mint hair. These two coloring options are sill in-vogue today because they suit a light-skinned complexion perfectly, and they work well when a teen wants to show off some glowing make-up.

After leaving Disney for the silver screen, we saw the famous Selena “half-up and half-down” hairdo, which is totally graceful when executed correctly. This style is great for young women heading out on that romantic date; and if a girl wants to add a feminine touch to her half-up and half-down, blending in some waves with face-framing wisps will do the job nicely.

Now that Selena has passed the big 2-0, she is settling for little more hair-freedom, which means putting her hair back on the chopping block. Selena has parted ways with her signature long dark locks, in favor of the super-trendy mid-lob. The star flaunted her new lob on Instagram this week–and guess what?–a lot of people obsessed over her novel image, based on the million hits she received in less than twenty-four hours.
