Selena Gomez Ditched Her Bob Hairstyle for Extra Long Waves

It looks exactly like her hair circa 2015.

Oh, the ever-changing hair of Selena Gomez. Not one to devote herself to a single style or color for too long, Sel has had a plethora of pretty lewks. Back in 2017, she shocked us all when she chopped her long, thick, curly locks into a cool crop and dyed it ice-blonde. It was a totally different look for Gomez, and one that we actually loved.

It wasn't long, though, before she went back to her roots (we dread to think how much upkeep the blonde demanded) and her hair has remained its natural hue, save for a few highlights here and there, ever since.

She's also stayed faithful to the bob/lob haircut, so much so that we'd almost forgotten what she looks like with really long hair.

Well, news flash: it's back, and it's longer and thicker and more glorious than ever. Debuting the new 'do in LA, Selena stepped out with what looks identical to her hair circa 2016.

Here's her old hair, for proof:

These extensions must be good, because we cannot for the life of us tell that any fakery is taking place (it must be, though, for the record). Styled in tousled waves, the warm ends have transformed her hair into a dreamy dip dyed color—a lovely update from her usual dark brown.

Who knows how long this new look will last? The Selena hair chronicles continue!
