Vanessa Hudgens appeared at a special screening of her new film, Gimme Shelter, on January 22 in New York City.
Vanessa is one of our favorite stars to see on the red carpet. She's always willing to try something new, and manages to pull off everything from modern girl to vintage glamour without a hitch. For the event, the 25-year old actress opted for a black Monique Lhuillier dress with a mix of sheer and bead encrusted fabrics .
Her beauty look was natural, with the exception of a dramatic silver and black smoky eye. Our favorite part of Vanessa's look, however, was her hairstyle. We immediately had to figure out how to achieve this loose, romantic ponytail for ourselves, and now you can get it, too!
Get the Look
Step one: Vanessa has gorgeous, glossy hair and she really puts it on display with this hairstyle. Start your look by replenishing moisture back into the hair with a quality hair mask. Once you've washed it out, shampoo and condition as usual.
Step two: Apply a curl-creating mousse to your hair and use a comb to distribute it evenly. Then, either let your hair dry naturally or use a blowdryer.
Step three: Use the end of a comb to create a side part. On the side where you've created the part, use your hands to smooth the hair back and guide it to the other side, allowing it to drape over the shoulder.
Step four: Grab the top front section of your hair and hold it in one hand and hold it away from the face. Then, grab another section of hair on the side and wrap it around the top section. Let it drape loosely and secure it behind the ear.
Step five: Gather all of the hair and use pins to secure it around back. At mid-length, grab a 1/2" section of hair and wrap it around the hair so that it creates a loose ponytail. Use a small, clear elastic to secure it.
Step six: Spray your hair with hairspray to keep it in place all evening long.
