Selena Gomez ditched her extensions, and everyone is talking about it. But they aren't saying that's what she did. Instead, folks are ooh-ing and ahh-ing over her "new mid-length bob." No. Just, no. I'm sorry, but you don't get to just take out the fake hair you stuck to your head for Coachella and then get me to rhapsodize about how much better this 'new look' suits you. It isn't a new look! It's her old look!
Sure, long, pretty, boho-style extensions are fun to do. But I think they're best used the way Selena employed them -- for specific events. If you're wandering around an outdoor concert venue, by all means, channel your inner flower child. But don't then get back to the 9 to 5 way of life and be all "haircut"! THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED. Okay. Hold on. I have to count to 10.
It's no wonder Selena didn't actually grow her hair out to such bohemian levels. Her baby-face (which I do enjoy) is much better suited to a medium-long look. It really brightens up her face and makes her look so much more well-rested than the long, lank extensions did when she was at Coachella. Still, the fact remains -- this wasn't a haircut. This was basic hair maintenance.
What's next? Are we going to have "breaking news" the next time Kim Kardashian washes her hair? Unless someone buzzes off half of their hair, Demi Lovato- and Natalie Dormer-style, makes waves with an Emma Watson-type pixie, or goes the full-Britney Spears what with the head-shaving, we shouldn't celebrate it as breaking hair news! I heart Selena's Instagram, and I'm always willing to click and see what she's up to. But let's call this what it is: Selena took out her extensions and donned a hat. It's hardly a hair revolution.
Do you think she looks better with long hair or short?
