Hair texture type: "Selena's hair type is wavy, thick, and gorgeous — she is a lucky girl!" says Jamal Hamadi, star stylist and creator of Hamadi Organics, who worked with Gomez recently, styling her for the People's Choice Awards.
Going curly: On wet hair, apply a leave-in conditioner like Hamadi Organics Shea Leave-In Moisturizing Styling Cream, and then let hair air-dry. "It's a great styling cream — it keeps the curls looking moisturized and tamed without feeling or looking like you have any product in your hair," he says.
Making it straight: "I always start off with a protector like Hamadi Organics Shea Spray. It adds a nice amount of moisture to help with frizz and creates shine, but it's so light and weightless," he says. "You won't feel like there's anything in your hair." Next, he uses a leave-in conditioner to smooth out the hair and add more shine as he blows it until it's just dry. He follows with an ionic flat iron: "The ionic tools are the only ones I use. They are so much better for your hair's condition and don't overheat it," he says. He finishes with a little more leave-in conditioner on the ends and runs it through with a natural-bristle brush.
