Think about Princess Diana, Brooke Shields, Michelle Pfeiffer. These lades had soft hair, peachy makeup and big pearls; they looked youthful, innocent and sexy.

Captured by high fashion photographer Steven Klein for W’s March cover story, Selena Gomez, wittingly or not, provides a perfect update to the beachy wave look. Rather than the big tumbling ‘C’ shaped swirls that ushered in this trend a few years ago, here we see a wet and wild, snaking wave.  With the subtle headband adding height to the crown, there’s a rakish 70s vibe going on.
