Selena Gomez just made a major change to her look. In a photograph posted to Instagram on Tuesday morning, the 24-year-old singer showed off her brand-new bob. That’s right: a bob. The star just chopped off her shoulder-length lob in favor of a shorter, edgier cut that hits right at her chin.
The photos look as though they were taken immediately after the cut. Selena shows off her angles, hair still wet, wearing what looks to be a white bathrobe pulled off her neck and shoulders. In the pic, she’s wearing little-to-no makeup. How’s that for flawless? Selena wrote no comment to go along with the snaps, leaving more questions than answers in her wake: What was her inspiration? Whose stroke of genius was behind the sharp shears? When will we be able to see her new epic style in action?
Celebrities like Jessica Alba, Lily Collins, and Anne Hathaway have all tried out similar styles in the past, so Selena is following in very chic footsteps with her new cut. Though a stylist has yet to claim Selena’s amazing new look, history has shown that when Selena updates her style, Marissa Marino is involved. The hairstylist has been responsible for many hair makeovers for the singer, including her last headline-making cut.
It was only in January of this year that Selena went short, cutting her long locks to shoulder length. It seems as though it was only a stepping-stone to the final look, however. Is today’s cut her final look, or will she continue to go shorter? Could a pixie be in her future? One thing is for sure: As the weather heats up, a bob like Selena’s is the way to go.
