Selena Gomez Says No to the Bob—and Yes to a Cool New Length

From Bella Hadid’s clavicle-grazing lob to Kendall Jenner’s sleek chop, the bob is summer’s hair look of the moment. But after a brief brush with the style, Selena Gomez is dramatically changing course, trading the chin-length brunette layers she debuted earlier this spring for a shakeable, unapologetically long take on bombshell brunette this past weekend.

The pop star was spotted again in Manhattan this morning with her new soft and glossy extensions parted at center and left to catch the breeze for a scene-stealing look that rendered accessories unnecessary. Aside from the dusting of mauve eyeshadow that crept toward her full brows, and a nearly natural pink lip, Gomez let her free-flowing hair speak for itself, allowing it to cascade over shoulders with a few choppy, face-framing layers furthering the bohemian effect. If a hair cut is the beacon of a life changed, then perhaps a bold new length is a sign of one that’s glamorously grounded.
