Selena Gomez made undone waves look gorgeous when she posted a photo of her retro hair on Instagram on May 27. The singer shared three black and white photos of her look, leaving us wondering how she manages to make bedhead look so good.
Selena Gomez, 22, is no stranger to retro beauty looks — the singer recently “wowed” us with a ’70s inspired look in her music video for “I Want You To Know” with Zedd. Her latest, more ’60s inspired post, had us wanting to copy it immediately.
Selena Gomez’s Retro Hair — New Style On Instagram
Selena posted this Instagram of three pictures from the same shoot with the simple caption, “tb.” It’s a mashup of bombshell Brigitte Bardot with volumized undone waves, and bookish Audrey Hepburn from Funny Face with her simple black turtleneck — the look was equal parts sexy and smart.
To copy Selena’s undone half-up, half-down hairstyle, start on second-day hair that has a bit of texture to it. Wrap random sections of your hair around a one-inch curling iron to get the haphazard waves Selena is sporting, then spray Redken Windblown 05 Dry Finishing Spray throughout your hair for an airy texture. Create a deep side part, and pull the sides of your hair back, pinning them off of your face and leaving a few pieces loose.

To really nail the ’60s style, copy Selena’s makeup, too, by opting for a pinky nude lip like Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 08. Finish the look by lining your eyes with Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx and smudging it out like Selena did to keep with the undone style.
