Selena Gomez 'shiny locks' explained

Selena Gomez's glam squad revealed how they prepped her hair and make-up for the Teen Choice Awards.

The star wowed when she stepped out at the event wearing an olive green Cushnie et Ochs calf-skimming frock, which featured a daring double split up each thigh.

To complement her edgy dress, Selena's hairstylist Richard Collins kept her locks straight and super glossy.

Richard has shared the details on how he created the look.

“After blowing out her hair with a round brush, I sectioned the hair off, starting at the bottom, and applied small amounts of Victoria's Secret Smooth and Glossy Shine Serum, then flat ironed. I used the FH1 Flat Iron for this – it’s my favourite for when I’m trying to get the hair as smooth as possible," Richard told "Once I was finished, I used a little bit more of the serum on the top of her hair to add that extra shine.”

Selena displayed a more sophisticated beauty look than seen before. The 21-year-old's chic ensemble was perfectly matched by the grown-up make-up. The artist responsible was Karan Mitchell, who gave the lowdown on what she wanted to achieve with Selena's cats-eye beauty.

“For Selena’s look for the Teen Choice Awards, her dress was very structured so she wanted her make-up to be sophisticated with an edge,” Karan explained. “Beginning with the eyes, I used the soft mauve shade from Nars Fairy's Kiss Eye Shadow palette on the eyelids and applied with a slightly damp eye shadow brush. I drew a strong winged eye line to the upper lashes with Victoria's Secret Beauty Kajal pen. Then added two coats of Maybelline's The Falsies Mascara in Very Black Waterproof. I curled her lashes and added false lashes to complete the eyes. For her foundation, I used a soft foundation brush to apply Nars Radiant Cream Foundation in Sante Fe. For a little definition to her cheekbones, I used the Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Goddess from Victoria’s Secret Beauty, as well as Nars Boys Don't Cry Blush. To finish the look, I used Nars Larger Than Life lip gloss in Paris Follies."
