From the time she was a little girl, Selena Gomez’s natural hair had inspired her to be a hair artist. The “Good Morning America” co-host and actress loves cuttings, and her love of the craft inspired her to start her own hair studio. Today, the “Bad Romance” singer has a signature haircut that she’s dubbed the “Bad Romance.” The name is a reference to her hair — it looks luscious and wild but also represents the song’s rebellious nature. If you ask her, her signature style is also a compliment to her personality. Regardless of what you think of her appearance, you can’t deny that Selena has a great head of hair. In honor of her new look and the start of a new chapter in her life, here’s all you need to know about her new Selena Gomez’s Haircut.
What is Selena Gomez’s Haircut?
For those who haven’t been following Selena’s daily beauty regimen, her signature style is called a bob. A bob is a hair style that is straight and medium length, with a crown of hair at the back and small, choppy bangs around the face. It’s a classic style that dates back to the 1950s, when it was popularized by Bobby Darin.
Today, bob haircuts are popular among celebrities, although several models have also sported bob haircuts, including Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford. While bob hairstyles have become somewhat associated with celebrities in recent years, they were actually popularized by rock and roll stars in the 1950s and ’60s, including Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Janis Joplin.
How to Style Selena Gomez’s Hair
Depending on your preferences, you can wear your bob hair shorter or longer, on top or back, or in a variety of textures. For example, a short bob can be worn on top of your head or cropped close enough to your face so that your bangs cover your eyes. You can also wear your bob hair long and loose, with longer bangs framing your face. Selena’s hair is long, so a medium-length bob styled back-swept looks best on her.
If you want to wear your hair in a different style, you can also do bobs loose and messy like Selena does in the first two photos.
The History of Selena Gomez’s Hair
In the past decade, Selena’s hair has undergone a transformation that has captured the imagination of those who love her. In 2006, she debuted the “shortwave” cut, which was styled with a shaved head and a long fringe. The following year, she debuted the “shag,” which was shorter with longer bangs.
In early 2009, after years of trials and errors, Selena finally found the perfect style for her. The “bad romance” haircut is a tribute to that moment. The wave and fringe cuts, along with the messy, wild look of her hair, are recurring themes in Selena’s music videos.
The Beauty of Selena Gomez’s Hair
Selena’s longer hair seems to suit her better, and the loose waves look great on her. Her hair is naturally dense, so the waves look great on her. The texture of her hair is also difficult to describe, but it’s silky against the skin.
The Final Words on Selena Gomez’s Hair
There was a moment, in early 2016, when it appeared that Selena was planning a drastic hair change. The 24-year-old singer’s buzz cut was quickly replaced by a longer bob with bangs.
But that transformation didn’t happen quickly enough for Selena, and she has since returned to wearing her hair in a bob. The “Hollaback Girl” star has since used her hair as a canvas to create innovative new looks, including the “bad romance” and the natural look. Whatever style you choose, remember to keep your hair healthy and happy. And remember to protect your hair from damage. Tie up your hair when you sleep, wash your hair in the morning, and use a goodampoo before shampooing again. And don’t let your hair get out of control.
