You could celebrate your birthday with a standard slice of cake and ice cream, or if you’re Selena Gomez you opt for a hairstyle update instead. The singer who turned 24 on July 22 took a break from her Revival World Tour shows to celebrate her big day by getting a little scissor happy.
The singer first debuted her soft curtain bangs and honey-blond highlights a few weeks ago and this cut gives the retro-inspired style a fresh update. Selena’s go-to stylist Marissa Marino of Nine Zero One Salon in L.A. took a few inches off of Selena’s length and may have also taken out the singer’s clip-in extensions which she wears to achieve her signature fullness. Selena gave her fans a first look at her new ‘do in a series of cute Snapchats videos and photos over the weekend.
While Selena may be rocking a shorter length, Marissa’s cut still allows for optimal hair flips, which have become an integral part of Selene’s Revival shows. “I feel like it just becomes part of what I'm singing about in a weird way, it's like I can speak with conviction through my hair," Selena previously told InStyle of her onstage and offstage Revival Tour hair routine.
