Hairstyles – Get the Look.
Selena Gomez made headlines at the recent MTV Movies Awards not just because of her beautiful Julien Macdonald metallic mini-dress but also for her choice of hairstyle which complimented her entire look.
Today, hair extension specialists at Pauls Hair & Beauty World show us how to recreate the look in six simple steps.
If you’re lucky enough to have very long hair, this style will be pretty easy to complete. If not, use clip in hair extensions to get the necessary length to complete the French braid and add thickness to the style.
Backcomb the hair on the crown of the head to create a small bouffant, and pin into place. Use a backcombing brush to quickly get height and body.
Smooth the hair and create six small pony tails down the centre of your head.
Carefully create a French braid using all of the ponytails. You might need a friend to help you with this step.
To get Selena’s tousled look, gently pull the braid apart slightly, and pin to the smooth area of your hair to ensure the ponytails are completely covered. Use the back comb brush to carefully backcomb the French braid to add to the messy look.
You’re ready for the red carpet! Spray with extra hold hair spray to keep down any flyaway hairs and keep your Selena pony looking great all evening.
