Vanessa Hudgens's New Bangs: Love 'Em or Hate 'Em?

03/20/2008 at 10:43 AM ET

Tom Meinelt/Pacific Coast News

Taking a note from Rachel Bilson and Miley Cyrus, the High School Musical star has added blunt bangs to her long hair! The actress showed off her new ‘do on a rainy N.Y.C shopping trip yesterday. The thick bangs add some extra edge to Vanessa Hudgens’s already trendy style. We hope they don’t get too much longer, but for now we like the change. Tell us: What do you think of Vanessa Hudgen’s new bangs? Do you love them or hate them?

…..& THEY ARE!!!!!

If they were real I would probably like them!

Why is everyone getting bangs?????
…..Rachel looks okay with hers!
…..Miley looks soo hot!
…..Vanessa is a poser!

Carrie on

She looks like Linda Ronstadt in this picture! I don’t really like the bangs on her, Rachel Bilson, or others. I think they are TOO blunt.

Aimee on

Aww, they look nice =]
She suits without too though , x

Ruxandra on

They’re ok, they make her look a bit 60’s. I like it.

yvonne on

samantha on

Emily on

I’m not a fan, they make her look too messy and old. It’s just too much at one time.

Kim v on

I think she looked better without them.

izzy on

fashionexpert on

Stefanie on

Too many bangs, too thick. I don’t like them on her.

Emme on

Not a good decision.

Leesa on

Too blunt, too thick, and just too ugly. I think they look terrible.

Debbie on

I agree with the person that said she looks like a poser. This is not a good look for her AT ALL.

Anonymous on

I think she looks cute, but I don’t know why she’s famous. Dating a plastic she-man, making terrible “movies”, and taking her clothes off shouldn’t count as “fame.” She should just disappear before she embarrases herself even more.

Rebecca on

I think that the bangs look good on her. Before, everyone in Hollywood had long hair and no bangs, and I think it looks great on her!

marta on

make her look old.
they’re too heavy.

Sammy on

I hate her bangs!

Evelyn on

I used to think Vanessa was ugly. Now I think she is hideous.

Tina on

♥ rosie on

Aww she looks like a doll! So adorable!

Sameera on

Hey I really hate it man She looks so stupid
……and ghostly look I hate her

Erock on

They look cute, but kinda’ look like clip-ons.

Fran on

I don’t know if this is quite a good shot of her new bangs, but yeah I’m not too much of a fan either…they look too heavy for her face. But maybe if i saw a different shot i’d like em.

MaRiA on

i think she looks cute either way…anyone can rock the bangs

martha on

Alanna on

she looks just like lily allen…….

Amanda on


Danielle on

a on

I don’t really hate them, but she would look much much better without BANGS!!!

katie on

love it. it’s fake though. but i hope she cuts them for real, it would be a great new style for her upcoming album

rachel on

I think that she was better without the bangs. Now she’s taking over what Miley Cyrus & the other celebs have of bangs

miranda on

see look glamours see look like a new vanessa!

miranda on

love them. she looks cutie and glamorous. its like a new vanessa

Moi on

ewwww…. she looks really bad! I liked her hair before!

Dani on

Why would you hide your lovely forehead and eyebrows? By doing this she has shortened her face and she’s lacking the glow and definition she had without bangs. I’m guessing it’s not permanent though.

celia on

They probly aren’t my first choice for vanessa but they are alright i think she should stay with side bangs,

jessie on

it looks like a wig.

h8r on


jess on

no its bad BUT i love the colour

Morgan on

HAAAATE it. It looks HORRIBLE. It’s been looking bad on a lot of people lately.. you really have to do them right and have the right structured face to pull them off.

Jolien on

I don’t like it a lot, but it’s ok. Her previous hair was so much better

Hannah on

I use to LOVE her hair! Now it looks sooo ugly!

Darian on

hate it she looks like a wannabe little girl it would look so much better if she had bunch of layers in the under neath of her hair like a plum collar

Megan on

I’m sorry she looks older and uglier with them!
I miss her old hair now!

KeShaJo on

Bangs are definitely in…but they’ve been updated from the traditional look. Bangs have more weight nowadays and personality! I love ’em! iBang!

Anonymous on

WOW!!!! Rachel Bilson looks bad enough, Miley looks even worse, and now Vanessa looks the worse!!!!! Why is everyone getting bangs?! It’s NOT working for anyone!!!!!!!!

giovanna on

i dont like them! her face is too pretty to hide! she should get them shorter


Vanessa doesnt look that great with bangs she looks better without :)

amanda on

I think she’s prettier without those bangs.

zoom_boom716 on

honest on

its a wig. look closer. awful. if thats not a wig, i feel sorry for her.

Vivian on

I love them, I think she’s a very cute girl, & in about 5 years she’ll be a knock out, you watch & see, she’s got a unique & exotic look about her & she can wear anything & still look great, so I totally dig the bangs too!

Lynn on

I don’t really like them. They make her look too old. She looks cuter without them!

Denise on

Love the bangs but it does make her look older…

Dela on

She looks soo fake! I mean she looks fake all the time, but now she looks like a complete sponge! FAKE FAKE FAKE!!! Get rid of these bangs, PLEASE!!

STYLE 101 on

I think they look to blunt. Maybe if she thinned them out they could work, but also her dark hair around her face makes her look pale. Definetly not a summer trend!!

Bananana on

I dont like them at all!

emocutie on

if they weren’t so long the bangs would be really pretty

n/a on

they don’t suit her or her face.

Iris on

Look so fake…. I don’t like it!

melli on

love them
she always looks so pretty

LT on

Bangs can look cute on the right people. The thing is they don’t look good on everybody. Why don’t these stylists tell their clients this? Vanessa’s bangs are thick and heavy. They swallow her face. It doesn’t compliment her. The thing with bangs is that once you cut them, you have to let them grow out if you get tired of them or don’t like them. She is such a silly rabbit. Sometimes sticking with what works is not a bad thing. But then again, trial and error aint bad either!

stylen on

sooooooo horriblee

arodfan13 on

Nahh, im really not liking the bangs. I liked her hair in High School Musical 2, because her hair was short and cute. Now her hair looks fake. ugh:(

Anonymous on

She looks a hot mess with them I like her and everything but it makes her look to old for her age!!!

Anna on


they dont look that awful but i cant stand her.. and what looks good on her would look even better on someone else. if it doesnt look good(most things dont) other people could pull it off
shes a poser

Anna on

kriss on

Steve on

She is totally beautiful, inside and out. She has a voice of an angel and looks like a doll!!

Everyone else with bad comments, please keep it to yourself. Didn’t your parents teach you anything???

If everyone would get along and spread the love, this world would be a much better place.

keke on

i love how all you b****es are hating on a girl that is beautiful she can sing and act…highschool musical was just away for her to get exposed into hollywood. this is why i hate girls they are always hating the pretty ones. You all need to go check yourself in the mirror and stop being so insecure. I wanna see you guys post your pictures up and see what kind of comments you all get…ouch!!!
