Spotted last at the VMAs 2015, even as she walked the red carpet Ms Gomez was on the beauty hit list for her neutral makeup and glossy tones, and most strikingly, that lustrous mane that mirrored the camera flashes.

Gomez admits its been about trial and error until she got here. In her younger (than now) days, she fell prey to the straightening trend when she was in the sixth grade. “I used to think that as long as I could see this hair [in front of my face] was straight, then the back didn’t necessarily need to be straight. So for the entire sixth grade, I only straightened the front of my hair. That wasn’t really my proudest moment.”


“The best hair trick I learned, and I feel like all my girls will agree, is dry shampoo. It’s awesome.”

A dry shampoo formula is crafted to absorb the oils, making your hair look less greasy, without leaving you with a dry scalp. It works as an instant pick-me-up when you do not want to wash your hair.

Before you begin, make sure to untangle your strands. Then, all you have to do is sprinkle, or spray the shampoo over your scalp and let it absorb the oil and dirt for a few minutes—preferably five to 10 minutes. Finally, brush your hair till the shampoo isn’t visible anymore. It’s that simple.

In fact, when in a hurry, feel free to use baby powder as a dry shampoo. Also, here are two recipes you can make at home for an all-natural fix.

Not a fan of the mullet or crimp, Gomez is loving her lob and reaches out for the old-school scrunchie, every time she wants a cute up-do. This reminds us, there are a whole host of classic hairstyles that we think should make a comeback. Care to try the quiff, fishtail braid, or twirled half-pony tail?
