‘How-to’ create Selena Gomez: Funky French Braid


Heads turned as Selena Gomez stepped onto the red carpet at Sunday’s anticipated MTV Movies Awards. Her beautiful Julien Macdonald metallic minidress added a touch of glamour to the event and Selenas bold choice of hairstyle has been a key talking point this week.

We spoke with hair extension specialists at www.pauls-hair-world.co.uk to find out how to recreate Selenas great look and get red carpet ready in 6 simple(ish) steps!

Step 1

If you’re lucky enough to have very long hair, this style will be pretty easy to complete. If not, Pauls Hair World recommends using clip in hair extensions to get the necessary length to complete the French braid, also adding thickness to the style.

Step 2:

Backcomb the hair on the crown of the head to create a small bouffant, and pin into place. We suggest using a backcombing brush available for only £2.99 to quickly get height and body instantly.

Smooth the hair and create 6 small pony tails down the centre of your head.

Step 4:

We suggest you ask a friend to help you with this step. Carefully create a french braid using all of the pony tails.

Step 5:

To get Selena’s tousled look, gently pull the braid apart slightly, and pin to the smooth area of your hair to ensure the ponytails are completely covered. Use the back comb brush to carefully backcomb the French braid to add to the messy look.

Step 6:

You’re ready for the red carpet! Spray with extra hold hair spray to keep down any flyaway hairs and keep your Selena pony looking great all evening.
