Vanessa Hudgens with Kris Kardashian mushroom hair – cute or get a better style?

When I first saw the thumbnail for one of these photos of Vanessa Hudgens at an event yesterday I thought she was Kris Kardashian, I really did. Kris has the same dark hair in a very similar mushroom style cut, only she doesn’t have the excuse of wearing that style for a role. (Other than her daily one of grand master pimp.)


We’ve already seen Vanessa’s dramatic transformation for her role as a homeless teenage mom in Gimme Shelter, and this cropped haircut is part of that. Vanessa has admitted she liked her old hair better. She said “I miss [my hair,] believe me, I do, but there’s nothing I can do about it.”

She’s making the best of it, though, and she looks super cute on the red carpet, even if it’s easy to mistake her at a far distance for a 50-something with a lot of plastic surgery. That hair is aging her, and she’s said as much and that it makes her feel “like a soccer mom,” but she’ll be rid of it soon enough.


In these photos Vanessa was hosting the “2011 Hurley Walk The Walk Championship at The U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California.” Just Jared describes it as “the world’s largest high school fashion competition.” In terms of Vanessa’s fashion she makes up in attitude what she lacks in style. Her enthusiasm is kind of infectious and it makes me want to overlook those ugly gladiator shoes and the fact that she’s over-accessorized. I like that coral dress but why weight it down with so many necklaces, rings and bracelets? I guess she has on a cover-up for a bikini so she’s trying to
jazz it up, but it just looks silly.


Also this model Marissa Miller was there. She’s so Botoxed that I really thought she was that evil bitch queen from Game of Thrones – Lena Headley. That’s what too much work does to you. Otherwise beautiful women end up looking like clones.


This is the photo that I thought was Kris Kardashian from far away.


See what I mean? When Vanessa does it, it’s cute. When Kris does it, it’s like she’s laughing at how much of her family’s snake oil the public will buy.

    I think she should just let it grow. And we should just be quiet and leave her alone while it does :D
    Her hair long used to be so pretty…

    One thing I gotta say – the whole deal would be better if she wore more feminine clothes, like frilly skirts and waist-defining tops and high heels, it would make her look a lot better, cause she’s naturally a tiny and feminine girl, not a boyish type.

  2. Alix says:

    A mess from top to bottom! Hideous, aging hair cut; dress (that knot!); overdone accessories; ugly-ass sandals. Complete fail.

  3. Jackson says:

    Hate the shoes. The hair looks kind of terrible, she needed to make it more ‘piecey’ and less ‘bowl.’ And all those accessories make her look like a kid who raided her mom’s junk jewelry drawer. Less is more, people!

  4. brin says:

    Awwww….I like her and the color of the dress is gorgeous on her. She actually looks better here than in other shots I’ve seen.

  5. Phoenix says:

    It’s definitely a lot cuter on Vanessa Hudgens than Kris Jenner.

  6. Maritza says:

    She looks adorable but Marissa Miller’s shorts look atrocious! I wouldn’t wear those shorts not even to throw the garbage out, better yet I’d throw them in the garbage instead.

  7. jesikabelcher says:

    I think she is cute – I LOVE THE SANDALS!!!

  8. WOM says:

    I think it’s a cute look. But then I scoff at the notion that ALL women look good in long hair. Hudgens is one of those women who can carry off long or short hair. Lucky bitch.

  9. tooey says:

    It pains me to say it but I think Kris K’s hair looks better; it’s choppier or has more movement or something. Vanessa’s is just too “helmet-y”; when she’s done with the movie role she should get some choppy layers cut into it and grow it out that way!

  10. Sucker for the Corps says:

    Total fail! The hair is fug, the dress is fug, the sandals are fug….the whole thing is fug!!! The model is nothing spectacular. She looks like every other model out there.

  11. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I’m confused by Marissa Miller’s shorts. When your legs are that amazing, why would you wear shorts that make it look like you’re hiding a package? Vanessa = fail.

  12. ladybert62 says:

    She is a cutie and I like her hair.

  13. yepp says:

    i wear my hear short for the most part, but i do throw in a weave when i feel like i wan to change it up… i think her hair is super cute and she looks good!

  14. cmc says:

    I feel bad for her…she’s playing an amazing role (hopefully) and this is supposed to be her first foray into real dramatic movies. However, all we’re focusing on is her hair and how crappy it looks :-/

  15. Ally says:

    She’s cute, but for her features, she needs a traditional ‘pixie’ cut. Put some paste in there and do lots of directions with it. What she’s got now is too shaggy.

  16. Elleh says:

    Bottom line: it’s a bad cut. The cut is bad in both concept (wrong for her face shape and facial features) and bad in execution. In short, it’s hideous. Clearly she’s overcompensating for it with all the gaudy accessories and bright colors, but inside I’m sure she’s as depressed as Pink was when her hair was unforgiveably butchered.

  17. Rhiley says:

    If I ever saw Kris Jenner in person I would ask her, “Have you hopped on down to the Regal Beagle lately for a cold beer and a plate of fries? I hope Larry is leaving you alone, Jack has finally come out of the closet, and oh, by the way, what is it like to have a roommate named Christmas Snow?”

  18. lucy2 says:

    Rhiley – THANK YOU! It has been bugging me who KJ reminds me of. But only if Janet were a money grubbing, kid pimping, obnoxious famewhore. :D

  19. Pix says:

    She’s cute and I’m just glad that she hasn’t put in long extensions and pretended like her fake hair is glory. I can’t stand when these actress do that.

  20. KLO says:

    All you people who keep going on about spiky hair and layers – she has naturally wavy/curly hair. And to make the spiky hairstyle work, you have to KILL it with product and heat styling. And to Ally – man, I’ve cut my hair to a pixie twice (I have curly hair too) when I was going through some stuff. To grow it out was a NIGHTMARE both times. And I lost a third of my hair because of all the product and styling it needed when it was short.
    So – anyone who doesn’t have curly hair or has never grown out a pixie, dudes – you don’t know what the hell you are talking about.
    Just leave her alone and let it grow out.

  21. nicole says:

    Oh my god. After that headline, I will never look at her the same way again. The side-by-side is priceless.

  22. mzjask says:

    OMG, Marisa Miller is like the perfect woman to me, but good lord what is that she is trying to pull off as an outfit?!
    just because you’re one of the most beautiful women in the world does Not mean you dont have to try anymore, smh.
    and her face is lookin harsh. im feelin like she needs a lil less sun and a lil more block. just sayin’

  23. kim says:

    That hair cut is horrible and she cannot pull it off. WOw that is the cut you go home and cry about . . .

  24. Sassy says:

    Vanessa is wearing a wig, people!

  25. Kim says:

    Seriously that has to be a wig. For her sake I REALLY hope it is. She isnt pretty to begin with and this hair doesnt help.

  26. Annie_Grey says:

    Trim off the extra in the back and make it a little more Victoria Beckham-y in the front.

  27. JaneWonderfalls says:

    She cut it for a new movie she’s staring in. I think she looks cute, I like it, it’s a change. It will grow back. She’s young:-) People have to understand most women do drastic things to their hair,but hey it grows back…

  28. Kosmos says:

    Both Kris and Vanessa look terrible in their clothing selections shown in these pics. Why wear these horrible fashions when there is so much to choose from? I just don’t understand….

  29. hatekyle says:

    she looks good and better than maybe most of the $10 hairjob of those who criticize.
    nothing bad to say about how she looks like or her hair.

  30. Kara Ann says:

    I actually like her better without all of that hair! She looked so weighted down before and you couldn’t really see her face. I’m not a fan of hers at all but I think that she looks alot better with short hair. Different cut and styling might help but still better then before.

  31. Nat says:

    I was wondering what Dorothy Hammill had been up to lately!

  32. Liamarie says:

    don’t like the belt. It makes her look heavy in the hips and she’s totally not (she’s teensy with an awesome figure). The hair will grow out. It needs time and care and it’s more important to keep it healthy than kill it with products and heat.

  34. dahlia1947 says:

    The whole look is terrible. I know the short hair is for a role and that’s good. Grow it out as soon as u can girl!

  35. Otilia Tuffin says:

    Ok that theme is nearly two years old, but I still like it!
