Get The Look: Selena Gomez’s Sleek Hair with John Frieda Hair Care

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Red Carpet

Glitz and glamour took the MTV Video Music Awards’ red carpet by storm last night and Selena’s look was no exception. Hairstylist Lona Vigi created a sleek style for the brunette beauty that complemented her chic yet risqué corset top Versace dress.

To recreate this look, follow these steps from Lona using products from John Frieda Frizz-Ease.

To begin, Lona combined John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($9.99 at drugstores) with Straight Fixation Smoothing Crème ($6.99 at drugstores) to wet hair. This cocktail gave Selena’s hair a silky smooth straight look that not only kept frizz at bay throughout the long night, but also helped to impart a shine that lasts.

Using the Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000, Lona blew Selena’s hair out straight as the base for her style. Lona recommends to flip the hair over and concentrate on drying at the root in order to keep the look from falling.

Sectioning off the hair, Lona then blew each section dry, with an Ibiza round brush to create a little body.

After the hair is completely dry, John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($6.99 at drugstores) was applied to create a silky, shiny finish.

Lastly, Lona’s trick for any strays and long-lasting finish – Using the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray ($5.99 at drugstores), spray a small amount on an clean mascara wand and glide over the front sections that frame the face and comb the hair outwards along your part. This is a great trick to rid your look of any stray or fly away hairs.

Selena Gomez lands the June cover of InStyle!

Selena Gomez lands the June cover of InStyle magazine, and doesn’t she look great? She’s definitely growing into a beautiful young woman. I love the photos that go with the article. We saw pictures from this shoot several months ago, but it’s nice to see them in the magazine.

The interview that goes with is somewhat interesting. It’s obviously done before she got back together with Justin Bieber.

She’s looking to push boundaries: “This is a weird transition for me. I want to keep pushing myself so I never feel settled. I don’t really know if it’s going to end up working. I’m stressed out most of the time.” Gomez would like to eventually say so long to music to concentrate solely on acting. She imagines a career modeled on stars like Shia LaBeouf, Jennifer Lawrence, and Natalie Portman–actors who are continually reinventing themselves, she says.

Her new album includes a breakup song: “Love Will Remember” mournfully chronicles the end of a relationship, and Gomez makes it crystal clear that she did indeed write it about Bieber. “That’s the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it’s a sweet way of releasing it. It’s not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting. I’m sure he’ll love it too.” ONE MORE PIC – AND MORE AFTER THE JUMP! More »

The beautiful Selena Gomez lands the April cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

Selena Gomez graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s April cover, and in the interview, she opens up about love, dating, style, and her career.

Selena has been stepping out without Bieber, who she dated for two years before their current state of on-or-off-ness. The attention on the starry pair was doubly magnified. “It was, but that’s not a factor for me because unfortunately you can’t control that,” she says. “To me, love is normal. Of course, you see Jay and Beyoncé and you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh, they’re perfect for each other,’ but at the end of the day their love is just like everybody else’s love.”

Gomez is sanguine about the single life, adding that she doesn’t get “asked out a lot,” “and when I actually look presentable, I’m at an awards show. It’s not like I’ve wanted to go out and look for someone. I’m not really good at that.”

But that doesn’t mean Gomez is a cynic when it comes to love. “I believe in love—yes, I’m one of those girls,” she says. “Most of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. She’s so fun and awesome, but it’s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and that’s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, ‘Oh, I met him in Starbucks.’”

On her day to day style: “I do not give a damn what I look like, I don’t,” she says. “I wish I could pay attention because Gwen Stefani, say, looks flawless.” Gomez is also a fan of Rachel Bilson (“the one person I totally love casually”), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron.” She laughs. “Of course, when I’m on red carpets, I’m nervous, sweaty, and weird.”

I’m so glad she’s no longer with Bieber. I think she’s beautiful – and she has a huge career ahead of her!

Selena Gomez covers NYLON Magazine, talks Bieber

Shortly before Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber split, she sat down with NYLON magazine, and talked about her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The actress admitted she had optimism when it came to their future.

“I’m having fun,” the 20-year-old said. “At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a different lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.”

Whoops.

Gomez may find her happy ending — but it won’t be with Bieber, 18. Luckily, her fellow unlucky-in-love pal Taylor Swift, 22, understands what she’s going through. “We both experienced the same things at the same time,” Gomez said. “But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.”

If the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer seems innocent, it’s because she is. While filming the upcoming movie Spring Breakers (directed by controversial Kids scribe Harmony Korine), Gomez was able to do things “that I would get so much hate and in trouble for,” she said of the racy caper, costarring Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and James Franco. “I had to have someone show me how to hold the cigarette.”

“I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony took a chance with me,” Gomez told NYLON. “He said, ‘You live in this bubble, and I’m going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.’”

The former Disney Channel star is eager to explore more mature roles, but she hopes to do so without alienating her target audience. “I’ve told parents, ‘Make sure you don’t let your kids see Spring Breakers,’ because with the title, you could think it would be cute or something,” she said. “I know it isn’t for the younger generation I have following me, but I’m also about to be 21. I felt like it was my little side project that I was super excited about, that would be under the radar.”
