Here's Why Selena Gomez's Lob Might Be Her Best


I know a lot of people are chattering about those Selena Gomez and The Weeknd rumors, but I've got something else Sel-related on my mind. Selena Gomez's latest lob might be the singer, actor, and style superstar's best 'do ever. Yeah, I said it. Gomez has a glossy and glorious brunette mane and even has a Pantene contract to show for it. Stylist Marissa Marino posted a photo of Gomez with an even shorter-looking lob on her Instagram and she looks like a glam queen. A sampling of the Insta comments proves that Selenators are also feeling her with shorter hair.

Yes, Gomez's extra long, shiny, and stick straight chocolate locks have been her signature for so long. Without all the extra length weighing it down, her coif has more bounce, looks even thicker, and has a such a sexy, bedhead texture.

Did I mention that it also looks like its crazy low maintenance, too? Wash, add some sea salt spray, crunch, throw in a little hot air via a blow dryer or skip drying altogether, and go! That looks like the routine with this style.

But the reason I dig this 'do? It frames Gomez's beautiful face and features. Yes, her makeup is dramatic here, but the cut and texture highlight her bone structure.

That eyeliner is on fire, too. But you know, I never paid much attention to Selena Gomez's jawline. Until now. This cut really draws attention to her face. See what a good haircut can do?!

The Gomez faithful was not shy about sharing its satisfaction with this follicular change.

It's proof that long hair isn't the only way to do sexy hair.

For the commenter asking what style this is, it's pretty easy to describe. It's a long bob or a lob. A shoulder-skimming cut, with a tousled texture and a deep side part.

Just for fun — a flashback to Gomez's long, wavy, and blonde-highlighted locks from last summer because it's Friday.
