Starting off her career at just 10 years old on the popular children’s show Barney and Friends, Selena Gomez has come a long way since her early days as a child star. Celebrating her 27th birthday today, the gorgeous brunette has transformed into a showstopper on the red carpet, while also delivering successful albums (with more to come) and refining her acting abilities. Along the way, she has experimented with various hairstyles that have become her signature looks, from her curly hair as Alex on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place in 2008, to straight, raven locks and elegant buns for special occasions with former beau, Justin Bieber. As she matured, Selena opted for sophisticated ponytails, nude makeup, and bold Bordeaux lips to showcase her more grown-up style.
In 2016, Selena Gomez’s fashion choices took a turn towards high-end runway pieces from Louis Vuitton, Coach, and Fenty. Her beauty looks also evolved, becoming more distinctive as the year progressed. In 2017, she opted for a bold statement by cutting her long waves into a stylish bob. She also sported a memorable pop of orange eyeshadow to match an eye-catching sherbet-colored dress. However, her most shocking transformation came later that year when she dyed her hair peroxide blonde for the American Music Awards. This new look gave her a 90s rock chic vibe with a cool girl attitude. To emphasize her versatility when it comes to hair, Gomez debuted wispy long bangs at New York Fashion Week in the winter of the following year. She then experimented with neck-revealing cuts that were perfect for warmer weather, proving that even a few inches can make a big difference.
