BREAKING: Selena Gomez is sooo adorable!! Okay, so that isn’t really news to a majority of the general reading public (and definitely not to loving boyfriend Justin Bieber), but we can’t help but let out a giant mama bear “AWWWwww!!!” while looking at this sweet little face from her appearance on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sel performed her single “Love You Like A Love Song” with her band, The Scene, wearing a shimmering silver metallic sleeveless mini, sparkly pumps, and her thick, wavy locks pushed back with this super-cute braided headband situation.
The hair-out-of-your-eyes look is kinda new for Sel, but she’s been rocking the style on the reg lately (all the better to see that little button-nose). When we saw this performance ’do, we totally over-complicated it, imagining sections from beneath the mane coming around to form the headband and reattaching on the other side (sidenote: this is why we type and don’t braid hair for a living). In reality, the look is created with the aid of a crafty little elastic headband made to match your natural hair color with a 1/2 inch-wide braid for a chic iteration of the quick hairstyling go-to accessory. The best part? You can get your own Thick Braidie Headband from Sephora for just $10!
