While Selena Gomez’ divine locks and cascading curls are done by professional hairdressers, it isn’t impossible for you to recreate the same style at home. Armed with a few basic tools and great styling products, you too can get Selena Gomez’ soft romantic curls.
Begin by shampooing and conditioning your hair with a good product such as Citre Shine Shampoo Shine Miracle and Citre Shine Shine Miracle Highly Laminating Conditioner.
Towel dry hair and apply a heat protection product like Nexxus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray, before any kind of heat styling to help prevent damage.
Next, divide your hair into pigtails near your ears and work mousse (we love Garnier Fructis Curling Mousse) into each side for volume and curl definition. Use elastic bands to loosely secure each pigtail.
Each ponytail should then be further divided into 6 sections for messier waves and 8 to 10 sections for a curlier cascade. Secure each section with an elastic band, then spritz each section with a working hairspray such as Redken Spray Starch 15 Hairspray, then curl each section with a curling iron, beginning at the base of the hair. Use a large barrel curling iron for a messy loose casual look and a smaller barrel for more of a ringlet effect.
Finally, after your all of your hair has cooled, carefully remove all of the elastics and gently shake your hair to loosen up curls. Use your finger tips to lightly comb through to blend the sections together and to define the curls. Finish with a light misting of a strong hold hairspray like Sebastian Originals Shaper Hair Spray, for a style that lasts the whole day.
