We’re not sure if it’s her Revival tour or being a spokeswoman for Pantene, but something certainly seems to have inspired Selena Gomez to make some buzz-worthy changes to her hair. Just last week she was making waves with her very of-the-moment highlights (the cool girls are calling it “bronde”), then this afternoon, she threw us for a loop again, showing off a set of wispy, summer-ready bangs. If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of fans stampeding toward their salons now.

The style refresh come courtesy of Marissa Marino, a hairstylist at Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles. “Selena wanted to switch it up for summer,” says Marino. “She wanted a new, fun, edgier look.” The duo opted for bangs that are lighter and more piecey than the brow-skimming versions we’ve been seeing for the past few seasons, which Marino says helps keep the styling options open. “The bangs are more versatile,” she says. The style “looks so good on her face, and because I am with her I can style it every day for her.” In case you don’t have a stylist on call to wrangle your bangs on a daily basis, Marino says the best thing that you can do to replicate Gomez’s breezy fringe is to work with your stylist to figure out the best length and shape to fit the angles of your face and your hair texture. Then just add a few waves and prepare for that relaxed beach-babe look that screams, “Vacation, here I come!”
