"New look," she captioned the selfie. "Need to pick new Rare Beauty lip and blush shades now."

In the photo, the "Baila Conmigo" crooner showed off a fresh manicure, which featured a different shade —from baby blue to peach — on each finger.

Hairstylists Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri, who have been managing Gomez's mane for over a decade, gave the scoop on the hot look to ELLE.

"She typically keeps it pretty natural, but this time she went for a big change," they noted, revealing they left her roots at their natural shade.

"This blonde is unique to [Selena], as we had to make sure there was an equal balance of cool and warm for her skin tone," they revealed. "It’s an edgier look and perfect for summer."

The dyeing process wasn't easy: in fact, it took 200 foils and a whopping eight hours to complete!

This marks the second time the Spring Breakers star has went for a blonde look, as she debuted a shorter blonde style in 2017. Going back to the lighter hue was a hit with fans, who declared on social media, "Blondena is back!"

A few days after revealing the change, Gomez stepped out to grab dinner with friends at Nobu in Malibu

The "Look At Her Now" singer's locks were the perfect counterpart to her all-black ensemble, which consisted of a long coat with brown furry trim, minidress and knee-high boots.

Prior to the outing, Gomez had been spending most of her time in NYC to film the Hulu series Only Murders in the Building, which also stars Steve Martin and Martin Short.

Next up, she'll start filming for Selena + Chef, which was just renewed for a third season.

Despite her already busy career, the multifaceted star declared the best is yet to come.

"I haven't even touched the surface of what I want to do," she told Vogue. "The parts that I want are the ones I need help with. I can't wait for the moment when a director can see that I'm capable of doing something that no one's ever seen."
