Vanessa Hudgens Gets Dramatic New Bob - Like it or Loathe It?

Vanessa HudgensIf you're one of the hundreds of Hollywood ingenues out there right now and you want to really stand out, what do you do?

Well, the latest attention-getting device seems to be lopping off luscious locks in favor of a dramatically different bob.

The latest victim?

Vanessa Hudgens.

Known for her long, glossy hair, Vanessa turned heads in New York this week with a radically different 'do.

What do you think of the look?



Personally, I'm in favor of it.

Vanessa probably looked prettier with longer hair, but pretty girls with long hair are a dime a dozen. This new look really makes her stand out, and in Hollywood, that's a very good thing.

I mean, seriously. How many 20-something starlets have you seen on the red carpet looking EXACTLY like V-Hudg looks in this shot?

The new bob also makes her look smarter and more mature -- more Mila Kunis and less Miley Cyrus.

That's a very good thing when you're best known for your role in High School Musical.

The only downside is that there's not a whole lot she can do with that look. It's too short to do much with it except pin it back with a barette or hairband.

Still, lots of celebs are getting bobs this year, including Diana Agron and Kate Winslet, and those who've made the cut are getting lots of press coverage as a result. Perhaps this new 'do will help catapult Vanessa's career from struggling teen star to major A-lister ...
