Selena Gomez showed off a super short haircut on Instagram this week, but fans noticed that at her latest red carpet appearance, her hair didn’t seem that short!
Now, the 24-year-old entertainer is explaining that in the Instagram pic, she was wearing a wig and didn’t actually cut her hair.
“It was so funny. I was trying on different stuff and I posted a picture [because] I liked the image. Evidently, people thought I cut my hair real short, but it’s still the same…it’s a little chop,” Selena told Extra.
Selena was asked if she would ever fully chop off her hair, to which she responded, “I don’t know, I’m terrified. I’m going to keep it safe for now.”

One of the best things about Instagram is that when everyone first downloaded the app, no one knew how to use it — even our favorite stars who have mastered it by now, like Rowan Blanchard, Harry Styles and Insta queen Dove Cameron.
There were no filter apps. No crops. Picture collages were clumsy and blurred. No one had an aesthetic. No one had the art of the selfie quite mastered.
Thankfully, this includes your favorite celebs (at least, those who haven’t gone back and deleted their old posts.) For your viewing pleasure, we have rounded up eight of your favorite stars’ very first Instagram posts — nostalgic, sweet, and completely new to the app. You’re welcome.
