Selena’s celebrity hairstylist, himself,  John D tells YOU how to get her Gorgeous Billboard Music Awards look!

Want to get Selena Gomez‘s long straight hair look with or without extensions? Follow John D‘s how-tos below!

“Tonight Selena wore a black D&G dress with triangle cutouts on the sides. It was ultra slick,” says John. “Selena’s hair was straight and sleek tonight. The style was inspired by the dress. Long, dark and dare I say… sexy.”

Here’s how John styled

  • “I started out with the hair dried. Starting at the back of the head I took thin-med sections and flat ironed. As I finished pulling the iron through the hair I gave the hair a slight bevel at the ends. Leaving them slightly flipped out.”
    • “To finish, I created a strong center part and gave the style a final spritz of hairspray, using Tresemme’s Climate Control Hairspray. I love this spray because it helps protect the hair from the elements while leaving the hair touchable and soft.”

    TOP 3 TIPS IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO ADD EXTENSIONS:

    1. Nicholas French, Matrix Artistic Director, recommends a “strand by strand” process.

    “The type of extensions good for this look is strand by strand remy hair, which means all of the cuticles go in the same direction,” says Nicholas. “This lasts for 3 – 4 months.”

    2. Deciding on how you would like your hair parted before you get your extensions is a good idea. Selena’s hair is parted right down the middle, but you can choose any part you like. Just tell your stylist first!

    “The hair should be parted before you put the extensions in so you can mask them better,” says Butterfly Studio Salon stylist Vanessa Fernandez. “You may have less/more extensions on one side depending on the heaviness of the part.”

    3. Finally, make sure your hair is super clean before your extensions are applied!

    “It’s better to have a clean scalp before putting in extensions as this will allow them to last longer,” explains Vanessa.
