Selena Gomez's braid on 'The View' - gorgeous glam

Sel usually wears her hair in loose waves so we were thrilled to see her switch it up a bit with a braid.

We saw braids all over the Spring 2014 runway, specifically at Rebecca Minkoff, Diesel Black Gold and VPL's shows. We love the trend and Selena is rocking it to perfection!

Get Selena's look

To get Selena's look, we like UNITE Tricky Spray. ($31, available at Spray this waxy hairspray for major volume and definition in your hair. It will give you texture and separation - two things vital to a good braid.

Let hair air dry with your natural waves. Pull hair one side to your head. Start braiding hair loosely near your neck. Braid all the way down and secure with a clear elastic. Make sure the top of your hair is loose and slightly messy, with pieces falling in your face. If you have layers that don't reach all the way into the braid, use bobby pins in your hair color, like our favorites from Goody, to secure the pieces.
