You Won’t Believe How Long Selena Gomez’s New Blonde Hair Took To Colour

That is a looooooooooong time

Selena Gomez shocked the world when she showed off her new blonde ‘do at this year’s AMAs.

The star recently split from fellow singer The Weeknd after 10 months of dating, and it was her big return to the stage, so a major change in her look isn’t that much of a surprise, we guess.

Selena, who is reportedly back together with ex-flame Justin Bieber, has switched up her trademark brunette look for Nirvana blonde. And naturally she looks great both ways!

Now Selena’s hairdresser has revealed exactly how long the colour change took – and it’s a bum-numbing number of hours, let us tell you.

Celebrity colourist Riawna Capri has revealed that the ‘do took ‘9 hours, about 300 foils and 8 bowls of bleach.’ Yikes.

‘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,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘Anything is possible in one day, it just takes time, no other clients ha, and patience to maintain the integrity of the hair.’

Dear Hairstylist, (for all of you who were asking) when your client brings in a picture of #NirvanaBlonde, you pull up this informational insta 😏 and let them know it took 9 hours, about 300 foils, and 8 bowls of bleach, all with 2 stylist working together simultaneously, (@nikkilee901 and myself). 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 ha, and patience to maintain the integrity of the hair. ✨ And to all you clients that want this, hopefully this explains the process a bit better so you can now be VERY patient with your stylist. 😘 xx, R
