Now that Selena Gomez‘s hair is super-long again, she hasn’t wasted any time doing the most with it. Did you see that incredible two-tone braid she wore in her new “Look at Her Now” music video? But braids aren’t always the end result — sometimes they’re the means to getting gorgeous waves, which is exactly what Gomez attempted to do on her Instagram Stories. (If you ask her, she didn’t succeed.)
On Saturday, Gomez started recording video almost as soon as she woke up, nothing that her grandparents were staying with her. “I had to put the pretty filter on ’cause I’m lookin’ rough,” Gomez says while using Instagram’s Golden Hour filter, which warms, softens, and adds virtual eyelashes. But it doesn’t do much to hide that Gomez has a huge, messy, loose braid flopping to one side, barely held in place by a blue scrunchie. As her Papa films her, she explains why her hair is in the state that it’s in.
“What I was trying to say is that I saw this online, where you’re supposed to flip your hair and braid it, and then it’s supposed to come out, like, amazing,” Gomez says, acting out the motions of flipping over and braiding it while her head is upside down. “So, let’s see.”
