Selena Gomez has bad hair days just like everybody else, and she is not afraid to talk about those past mistakes. The new Pantene spokesperson shared her own hair mistakes in an interview with Entertainment Tonight recently. Gomez admitted to her biggest hair faux pas in the interview, and she made the mistake while she was only in the sixth grade.
Young girls are just learning how to style their own hair at that age, and that involves a lot of experimentation. During that time, Selena was sharing a home with her mother and grandmother. The three women had to share one bathroom, and they often shared beauty products because of it.
At that age, Selena tried to use a flatiron to straighten her own hair. However, Selena realized her flatiron mistake after she made it. She said that, “I used to think that just because visually I could see that this hair was straight that the back didn’t necessarily have to be straight, so for the entire 6th grade I only straightened the front of my hair. That wasn’t really my proudest moment.”
Selena has a lot on her plate these days. She is the latest face of Pantene, and she revealed that scrunchies are her favorite hair accessory in addition to her hair mistake reveal. Pantene released her first commercial for their products last week.
On Friday, Selena Gomez showed off her latest hair look on her Instagram account. Hollywood Life reported that the singer chopped off her long hair for a shorter lob hairdo.

There is more to Selena than her hair though. The 23-year-old singer is getting ready to release a new album. On October 9, she will release Revival. The first single off the album, “Good For You,” was released in June, and Bustle revealed recently that the second single off the album is the song titled “Same Old Love.”
The song was “co-created by pop singer Charli XCX, hit-maker Benny Blanco, and famed production duo Stargate.” An official release date for the single was not revealed, but it should be available for Selena fans before the end of August.
In addition to her new album, Selena has signed on to mentor one of the teams on the next season of The Voice. Fans will see her work with Gwen Stefani’s group of singers during the season. According to Us Magazine, Gomez was a “backstage favorite” during her segment. A source said that, “She was surprisingly amazing as a mentor even though she’s so young. She exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
Many might notice Selena’s young age, but she has grown up a lot in recent years. She began in the business at the age of seven. In a recent interview with Radio.com, Gomez spoke about her evolution as a person.
“I feel like I know myself better, but I think I’m still learning every day. Sometimes I wake up and I’m like, ‘Who am I?’ But there are moments where I feel like the 14-year-old me, to the 17-year-old me to now being 23, it’s weird. But I feel like I’ve lived enough life and I have a right to speak my mind about my personal experiences.”
Selena has lived a lot in recent years, and her love life has kept her in the public eye. Her relationship with Justin Bieber has been on and off for years, and there are rumors that the couple is still an item. Hollywood Life reported last month that Justin serenaded Gomez over FaceTime for her birthday.
Selena spent the special day in London with her friends, but Justin wanted to make sure he made her day special, according to a source.
“He started the conversation by holding out one red rose and pretended to give it to Selena through the screen. He knows Selena loves roses. He played the guitar and sang a cute, funny version of Happy Birthday. It made her really happy. It was sweet.”
Selena and Justin were spotted sharing a public moment by the paparazzi just last month. Another Hollywood Life report shared an eyewitness account that revealed that Justin was “shirtless with a towel around his neck and sunglasses, walking away from the pool and inside the hotel. Selena has her hair up in a ponytail, wearing a large black T-shirt that looks like it belongs to Justin. She’s following him inside.”
The source also revealed that Selena spent a good part of the pool outing in a private cabana on Justin’s lap. However, Selena has also spent time with Orlando Bloom in recent months.
It is obvious that Selena has managed to keep herself in the public eye. With her music, her new spot on The Voice, her love life, and even her hair helping to shine a spotlight on the former Disney star.
