Selena Gomez's Brunette Look That Fans Envy

There are many things to love about Selena Gomez. Fan-favorite Gomez has inspired many with her vulnerability by publicly talking about her mental health. This multi-talented actress and model continues to amaze us with her philanthropy and new projects like her beauty line Rare Beauty. We can only imagine what she will do next. 

One thing is for sure, we love her no matter what, and that's especially true for her hair. This Texas-born beauty continues to have one of the most sought-after heads of brunette hair. Just look at her in medium-brown hair rocking a barely-there balayage (via Byrdie) or the dark chocolate bob she flaunted on TikTok — she can rock anything. No wonder people all over the world want Gomez's brunette locks.

This pop sensation went blonde in April 2021 with the help of Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri of Nine Zero Salon, who have been working with Gomez for over a decade (via Elle). However, blonde hair requires upkeep, and within two months, Gomez was back to being a beautiful brunette and was just as stunning. Right after she showed us her shoulder-grazing shaggy cut with some choppy layers to frame her face, and the deep brown suited her so well (via StyleCaster). Whether the "Only Murders in the Building" actress keeps her hair curly or straight, long or short, fans seem to envy her most with dark hair. 

Selena Gomez's brunette hair is dark and mysterious

Selena Gomez is a natural brunette, and though she gets some highlights and balayage on and off, she always seems to come back to her dark chocolatey shade. If you're looking to copy her look, you might be wondering which of the many shades of brown is right for you. Gomez's hairstylist, Marissa Marino, shared with W Magazine, "Make sure it's a color that compliments you and your skin tone, not the color that looks good on the girl in the magazine or your best friend." Marino also said that warmer tones flatter "more skin tones" and also "look vibrant and fresh," which explains why we typically see Gomez in a range of rich, warm shades.

Gomez's gorgeous mane has a lot of fans, and she's pretty fond of it herself. In an interview with Vogue, Gomez shared, "One of the most important things for me is my hair. I've always been about my hair, and I love that my mom and my nana taught me how to take care of it myself." 

One of her secrets to healthy hair is to condition regularly because she added that "it goes through a lot every day." She's also a huge fan of Pantene Air Spray, saying, "I literally just coat my hair in it before I go on stage. I do my dramatic hair flip, and I just coat it. It doesn't feel like it's damaging my hair, I can tell."
