Vanessa Hudgen's short hair

She may still be getting accustomed to her drastic hair make-under — a change for her latest film, Gimme Shelter — but Vanessa Hudgens isn’t having problems glamming up her new short do. The actress showed off her super-cropped locks Tuesday night at the Los Angeles premiere of Captain America, and for the big event, her stylist amped up the sex appeal on her new cut. “I first transformed her haircut by removing the weight from the sides, creating more texture and movement and opening up her face,” shares stylist Jamal Hammadi. Next, he straightened her waves with a large round wooden brush, then used a 1-in. hair iron to create curls around Hudgens’s head. “I pulled [them] apart with the hands, giving it height and separation that makes the texture look natural, chic and effortless.” He finished by teasing her hair starting from the roots, then brushed his fingers through her hair once more before she walked out the door. Voilà! Tell us: Would you try Hudgens’s short do? –Kim Peiffer
