While drastic hair transformations have that certain shock factors — bowl cuts, anyone? — realistically, it's more about the little things you can do that make a big statement. Case in point: Selena Gomez, who debuted subtle, barely-there highlights that will inspire just about everyone to get an appointment in for a winter refresh.

Riawna Capri, celebrity stylist and Hollywood go-to, explained that Gomez's new look involved just a "sprinkle" of highlights, which involved a few different shades to get a sun-kissed effect. Gomez debuted the shift at the Hollywood Beauty Awards and her hairstylist for the event, Marissa Marino, shared a close-up look of the color on her Instagram. The new colors are most obvious in the tendrils around Gomez's face and the lighter colors in the back got the spotlight with an updo courtesy of Marino.

"She stopped in to freshen up her '70s shag and color," Capri explained via email. "For Selena’s color we did a sprinkle of caramel, bronze, and sun-kissed highlights."

Gomez's new highlights come after her last hair transformation, bangs. Last December, the singer debuted a set of blunt bangs during a trip to London.
