Vanessa Hudgens Short Wavy   Black    Hairstyle  - Visual Story


Here, Vanessa Hudgens demonstrates how to work this trend, even on a fancy night out. Her disheveled ‘do looks just as good on the red carpet as it does with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, so whether you want to go casual or classy, this is definitely one style to try out.

A combination of medium to long layers are jagged cut all through back and sides of this dark hairdo to enhance the body and movement of the textured waves added for shape and and style. This look is easy to maintain with regular trims and needs product for hold and shine. Here’s how to get it:

For this hairstyle you will need wavy locks. For a more formal event, use a curling iron or wand to create gorgeous spirals like Vanessa. For a more casual look, let your natural waves shine though, or use hair rollers to add soft waves if your hair is naturally straight.

2. Create a centre hair part from the forehead to the crown, leaving a few layers out to frame your face.

3. Take the rest of the hair and roll it into a bun or French roll at the back of the head. Secure it with hair pins that are the same color as your hair so they blend in nicely.

4. To get that elegantly disheveled look, take a pick or the end of a comb and tug on small sections of hair at the roots to create looseness. This will also make the hair “bubble” out and look much more voluminous, rather than being tightly pulled back.

5. Finish it off with soft feminine makeup and a great set of earrings!

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

step 2

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

3. Use a Large Curling Iron

step 3

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

4. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

step 4

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

5. Tease Hair

step 5

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

6. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 6

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

7. Apply Hairspray

step 7

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
