Vanessa Hudgens's Hair at amfAR Inspiration Gala 2013

Vanessa Hudgens Makes Waist-Length Hair Cool Again

There are very few women who can pull off waist-length hair without looking dowdy, but Vanessa Hudgens proves that extralong locks can be less flower child and more fashion forward. At last night's amfAR Inspiration Gala in LA, her hair was super sleek and straight. Winter is the best time to try a pin-straight style because the lack of humidity will keep frizz away.

Getting hair this sleek starts before you even leave the shower. Rinse hair with a blast of cold water to help seal in moisture and promote shine. Then, blow-dry using as little product as possible (the more product you apply, the more limp your style will look). Instead of using a round brush to dry hair, opt for a flat paddle brush instead. Volume is something you don't want with this look. Flat-iron one-inch sections of hair to complete the stick-straight style. Vanessa finished off her look with lots of eyeliner and a glossy pink lipstick. Her red glitter manicure (below) was a festive addition to spotlight the season.
