It seems Selena Gomez has undergone another hair transformation. After spending eight hours bleaching her locks platinum blonde at the beginning of the year, the singer returned to her brunette roots soon after, with her long, almost waist-length locks once again her trademark rich chocolate brown shade. Now it seems Gomez has chopped it all off, revealing a sleek new blunt bob on her TikTok page.
In the videos, Gomez’s dark hair is noticeably shorter – perhaps the shortest length we’ve ever seen on her – with the ends sitting an inch or two below her chin. The cut is rounded yet blunt at the ends – that is, except for the sections either side of the Rare Beauty founder’s face, which appear to have been softly razored to create shape.
Gomez’s freshly lopped-off locks were styled sleek and straight with mirrorball shine, and judging by her energetic TikTok videos – one of which depicts the singer dancing and proudly showing off her chic new ‘do – we’re guessing she felt liberated by the change.
The TikTok videos are the first glimpse we’ve gotten of the Only Murders in the Building star’s new look, which is likely due to the fact that she doesn’t have access to her social media platforms. Gomez revealed that in a bid to better her mental health, she hasn’t had direct contact with any of her accounts in three years.
Instead, Gomez assigns her uploading to her assistant, who posts on her behalf then feeds any necessary information back to the star. The singer says that the distance was a “relief”, adding, “I felt like I was suddenly able to be so present.”
While it sounds like the right move for the star, we also hope she sees all the positive reactions to her chic new haircut.
It might just be her best look yet!
