Vanessa Hudgens looked every part the dancer with a slicked back, waist-length ponytail at the Industry Dance Awards on August 19. Bold lashes and a shimmery eye and lip combo completed her red carpet look. Find out how you can copy Vanessa’s gorgeous look!
Vanessa Hudgens, 26, mixed classic beauty with her edgy style in a sleek ponytail and a floor-length yellow gown with thigh-high slit and belt choker necklace. The Gigi star was being honored for her breakthrough Broadway performance at the Industry Dance Awards in Hollywood. In addition to honoring dancers like American Ballet Theatre’s Misty Copeland and legendary West Side Story star Rita Moreno, the event also served to aid dancers currently battling cancer.
While Vanessa chopped her hair into a short bob style back in the spring, she recently started sporting waist-length hair extensions styled in loose waves and boho braids. Her dance award slicked-back look was perfect for the occasion, and it’s easy to recreate.
Whether you’re in desperate need to cover up a bad hair day, or you want to step away from your usual loose hairstyles, start by brushing through your hair to make sure it’s smooth and creating a center part. If you’re not actually dancing, you can skip the gels and heavy sprays that leave you with a stiff finish. Instead, use a fine-toothed comb to pull your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, and finish with a shine spray like Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine for a glossy finish like Vanessa’s.
