How to Do Two Cute Selena Gomez Hairstyles for Curly Hair

Selena Gomez is a little style diva, isn’t she? From the clothes she wears to the way she does her hair, this lady knows how to put a look together. Instead of just doing a generic post about Selena Gomez hairstyles, I decided to offer up something a little different. For this post, I’ve picked my two favorite Selena Gomez hairstyles for curly hair and have walked you through how to do them from the comfort of your own home. They’ll take a little time (and maybe a bit of practice) but they’re not complex styles so any woman should be able to pull them off and get Selena’s signature youthful, glamorous look without a trip to the salon. Next time, we’ll talk about my favorite Selena Gomez updos but this time, it’s all about the curls.

Selena Gomez Hairstyles: Sleek Glamour Curls with Deep Side Part

This is probably one of my favorite Selena Gomez hairstyles. It’s glamorous, romantic but still youthful and fun. I also love the fact that it’s a style that suits nearly every face shape and can be easily done from the comfort of your own home. To get this look, you’ll need:

  • Styling lotion
  • Shine serum
  • Blow dryer
  • Paddle brush
  • Hair pins
  • Flat iron

Start by parting your hair in a deep, straight side part. Add a small amount of shine serum to a small amount of styling lotion. You don’t need any more than a quarter sized amount. Apply this mixture to your hair while your hair is damp. Work the mixture through your hair from the root to the tip. Next, take your paddle brush and your hair dryer and dry your hair in sections no bigger than two inches. Once your hair is dry, separate a one inch section of your hair from the rest and wrap it around three of your fingers. Pin this section up at your roots using your hair pins. After the section is pinned, pull your fingers out and close your flat iron over the section. This will set your curl. Be careful not to leave the flat iron on your hair for too long. A few seconds will be enough. Separate another one inch section of hair and repeat the process. Continue on until all of your hair has been pinned and set. Give your hair twenty minutes to cool down and then remove the pins and use your fingers to style your hair as you’d like.

Selena Gomez Hairstyles: Showstopping Curls

Another great Selena Gomez curly hairstyle but with this one, she’s really gone for the full on curly hair look and it works really well on her. This is another one that is glamorous but fun, compliments many different face shapes and can be done at home. For this look, you’ll need:

  • Mousse
  • Blow dryer
  • Round brush
  • Styling spray
  • Medium barrel curling iron
  • Shine serum
  • Hairspray

Wash and towel dry your hair until it is almost completely dry. If you’re going for the exact look Selena is sporting, you’re going to want to start by parting your hair into a slightly off center zig zag part but that really isn’t necessary. This look works with any kind of part you feel looks best on you. The zig zag just gives it a more youthful feel. Apply a bit of mousse to your hair, working it through from root to tip. Separate a two inch section of your hair from the rest and blow dry it, brushing it with your round brush as you dry. Turn the brush as you’re moving it through your hair so you have a bit of a bend throughout the length of the hair. Continue this process until you’ve dried and brushed all of your hair. Next, take one inch sections of hair and start spraying them with your styling spray. You only need to use a little. You don’t want to soak them. Place the barrel of your curling iron against the section of hair about five inches from the roots and start wrapping the section around the barrel. Hold for a few seconds and release. Repeat the spritzing and curling process until you’ve done your whole head. Put your styling serum on your fingers and run your fingers through your hair. This gives the curl a more relaxed look. Finish up with a light mist of hairspray and you’re good to go.
