Cancer season may be on its way out, but with Selena Gomez’s birthday falling on the 22nd, it isn’t leaving without a spark. The singer, actor, and producer celebrated the second half of her 27th lap around the sun with the launch of her latest album Rare. And with the announcement of her beauty brand of the same name, it’s clear to see that the star is gearing up for another big year.
In addition to her Hollywood accolades, Gomez has a virtually endless list of titles under her belt. The “Lose You To Love Me” singer has worked with organizations like UNICEF and A21, and she’s been an advocate for mental health. Between working on her own career, promoting new projects, and working to help others, she is one busy woman. But that hasn’t kept her from maintaining envy-inducing beauty looks all along the way — one of the many reasons I have a giant girl crush on her.
Gomez has never ceased to amaze me with her numerous hairstyles, some created with the help of her stylist, Marissa Marino. While she’s been in quarantine like the rest of the world, she’s still been giving me major inspiration for my strands. Below, check out the six times Selena Gomez has served up some serious hair goals.
It isn’t often that you find the star sporting her natural curls, but thanks to quarantine, she’s been letting her hair run free. Gomez built up anticipation for the launch of her beauty brand with a minimalistic makeup look that pairs perfectly with her carefree mane.
While she was promoting her latest album, Gomez worked with her stylist to create a half-updo inspired by the mod look of the 60s. With sleek and shiny strands complete with an outward flip, the hairstyle felt refreshingly modern despite its old-school roots.
I’ll admit, when I saw that the “Boyfriend” singer bleached her hair to a light blonde, I was surprised. But then it grew on me — and it eventually inspired me, someone with ultra-dark hair, to go lighter. In my humble opinion, Gomez as a blonde was a nice and unexpected change of pace for the typically brunette star.
Bold + Braided
If you’re ever looking for a cool update on the traditional braid, look to Gomez’s high and long style created by Marino for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. The updo even incorporated a classic pouf for some added volume and strength.
Gomez showcases the easiest way to dress up even the most casual ensembles: sleek low bun with a middle part. The singer may be known for her full hair looks, but when she wears it pulled back, her look feels instantly polished.
