It seems that Selena Gomez’s bleach blonde hair took nine hours to perfect. The 25-year-old singer flaunted her newly dyed bob at this year’s AMAs, which took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, on November 19.
Selena’s beauty team have revealed the makeover took almost 10 hours to carry out as ‘eight bowls of bleach’ and ‘300 foils’ were used in just ‘one sitting.’
Speaking to Us Weekly about the transformation, hair stylist Riawi Capri from Nine Zero One salon said that ‘It took nine hours, about 300 foils, and eight bowls of bleach, all with two stylists [Riawi and Nikki Lee] working together simultaneously.’
‘It was a nice long patient process of baby fine slices, then going back and opening each foil and reapplying, but done in one sitting. Anything is possible in one day, it just takes time, no other clients, and patience to maintain the integrity of the hair,’ Capri continued.
All the experts made sure they did their utmost to ensure the ‘Fetish’ hitmaker’s locks remained healthy and the lighter hue complemented her skin tone, especially because it was Selena’s ‘first major color change’ going from brunette locks to blonde.
The salon’s co-owner, Nikki stated that ‘Being that this was the first major color change Selena’s ever done, it was important to us that her hair remained healthy and the tone was right for her skin. The vibe is 90’s chic, and she named the color.’
‘Now that Selena is blonde it’s so important to keep her hair moisturized, strong and healthy. For an added dose of moisture, she swaps out her regular conditioner for Pantene’s Radiant Colour Shine 3 Minute Miracle Daily Conditioner. This keeps her rooted creamy blonde healthy and Selena can rock this new fresh look just in time for the New Year,’ Nikki concluded.
