Vanessa Hudgens is the latest star to rock super long hair

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!   

Just a few weeks ago, we broke the news that Vanessa Hudgens had cut her hair into a blunt bob with a fringe, sending the All Things Hair team into a frenzy. So as you can imagine, we were a little taken aback when we saw her latest Instagram upload and noticed that the star’s mane had magically transformed overnight into super long hair – right down past her waist!

The High School Musical alumni is the latest in a line of celebrities to trial Rapunzel-length locks, following in the footsteps of stars like Nicki Minaj and Shay Mitchell. So, if you’re ready to see how the star has worked the look with her own signature style, keep on scrolling!

Vanessa Hudgens now has super long hair – and we love it!

The 28-year-old took to Instagram to debut her hair transformation, sharing the above photo with her 23.9 million followers. As you can see, she’s traded in her bold chin-length bob and opted instead for flowing, hip-length extensions. She’s also ditched the full, blunt fringe and returned to her usual centre parting, which makes us suspect that perhaps her recent style was actually just a wig all along!

Working her tresses into loose, tumbling waves and being swept to one side for a super girly, feminine look, Vanessa holds onto her reign as the unofficial queen of festival style! She also chose to complement her summery ensemble with a ruffled white blouse and light wash denim jeans – so boho! Credit: @vanessahudgens

Now, with Coachella just around the corner, we’ve got a feeling the California native could be starting her festival beauty prep early. Needless to say, we’re going to be religiously stalking her Insta over the coming weeks to see how she styles her new hair, so watch this space. Credit: @vanessahudgens
