Selena Gomez’s bedtime braids

Selena Gomez sleeps with her hair in a braid to perfect her air-dried natural locks for her Revival tour, her hairstylist Marissa Marino has revealed.

Selena Gomez’s hairstylist plaits her locks before she goes to bed to save time on her Revival Tour.

The 23-year-old singer is currently on the road performing to thousands of fans every night. Kicking off the show, Selena starts with her hair in natural waves, before sporting a braid mid set.

Selena’s stylist and long-term friend Marissa Marino has less than a minute to perfect the look, but reveals she has found a novel way of doing so.

During an interview with Us Weekly, Marissa said she uses the beat of Selena’s songs to time her braiding. She also credited BB cream for helping tame any flyaway hairs before Selena heads back out onto the stage.

But the singer has high hopes for advancing the look as her tour progresses, adding to the publication: "Throughout the tour we're going to try new things with my hair, like adding cool materials into the braid."

Preparation for her look starts the night before for Selena. Marissa said the singer applies a deep leave-in conditioner to help strengthen and hydrate her locks after a shower, before plaiting her hair and sleeping with the braid in.

These natural waves are then given a quick style by Marissa, who uses a three-quarter inch curling iron and Pantene Air Spray to finish off the look. Once this is done, Marissa uses a wide tooth comb to "separate strands so the style looks lived-in."

One thing that Marissa thinks is incredibly important is working with her client to perfect a shared vision.

In a previous interview, she told Canada’s Hello! Magazine: "I feel like that's when the best things happen. When you're collaborating with the client and putting both your ideas together you get some magic."
