Selena Gomez just shocked fans with a brand new hairstyle and sent Selenators into a total frenzy… But one major clue has some people wondering if the hairstyle is new or if it’s a throwback. Let’s get into it!
Over the years, we’ve mostly seen Selena Gomez rock her natural dark brown hair. We’ve seen her experiment with different lengths and bangs and even some ombre lighter shades at the bottom.
But for the most part, she’s been a brunette. There was a significant exception, though, back in 2017 when Sel went blonde. She went for this light shade with dark roots, and fans absolutely loved it. The style didn’t last long, though, because Sel was a brunette again by 2018. But now, blonde Selena is back and better than ever! In a new post shared to her makeup brand Rare Beauty’s Instagram account, Selena debuted her new blonde locks.
Alongside the selfie, the photo was captioned “New look. Need to pick new Rare Beauty lip and blush shades now.” Selena reshared the post on her IG stories, and as soon as fans caught wind of this new ‘do, they absolutely lost it.
Selena Gomez and Selena instantly began trending worldwide on Twitter, with thousands and thousands of tweets rolling in. People started writing things like “BLONDELENA IS BACK I’M GONNA DIE, my queen,” “it looks good omgg,” “Stunning as always.”
Others also called out the similarities to Billie Eilish’s new blonde hairstyle. But some eagle-eyed fans noticed that in the pic, Selena is notably wearing a shirt with her 2017 song Fetish on it. So could this possibly be a throwback pic?!
Well, if you take another look at the pic and look at the iPhone she’s holding, you’ll notice that it’s got three cameras. That means it’s an iPhone 11 or 12 Pro, which means the photo was most certainly taken more recently than in 2017.
In 2017 we were on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and those only had two cameras. This shade of blonde Selena is rocking in 2021 looks lighter and brighter than her 2017 shade when we put them side by side. So there you have it.
Over to You!
Just some light detective iPhone & hair work for today. It looks like this is a recent pic of Selena with blonde hair, so we can rejoice that Blonde Selena is officially back, and we can’t wait to see more photos!
