Selena Gomez Side Braid
AKM-GSI

Selena Gomez is ready for fall! Dressed in a cozy knit sweater and full skirt, the pop star accessorized her look with a right-on-trend braid and wine-stained lip. Find out how you can copy her undone braid.

Selena Gomez, 23, is all the fall hair inspo you need. Taking a cue from the runway, Sel gave the braided look a try, keeping it undone and adorned with a simple black ribbon. The finished look is effortlessly cool and can be recreated in a matter of minutes without expert-level braiding skills.

Selena’s side braid style is a simple and pretty look, that got a bit of an upgrade with a black ribbon — reminding us of the accessorized braids we saw at shows like Lanvin and Giles, we love that you can dress this hairstyle up like Selena or keep it casual with jeans.

Copying the look is easy since messy means perfection in this case. Start on second-day hair, or spray freshly washed locks with a dry texturizing spray for a roughed-up texture. Brush your hair over to one side, and create a classic three-strand braid, making sure to keep your hair loose (make sure you don’t start too close to the scalp if you want a super undone effect like Selena).

Once you’ve braided your hair to the ends and secured with an elastic, sprinkle a volumizing powder like Fudge Urban Powder Styler onto your hands or directly onto the braid, and use your fingers to mess up your braid. Finish by tying a black ribbon (or any color you please) into a bow around the elastic.

The rest of Selena’s beauty look was fresh for fall as well, with a berry lipstick and simple black eyeliner. To get her wine-stained lip, use Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick in Made It.

Will you be copying Selena’s mess-braid style this fall?
