Vanessa Hudgens Just Debuted a Baby Bump and a Stunning Hairstyle on the ’24 Oscars Red Carpet


Surprise, Vanessa Hudgens is going to be a mom! No surprise, she looked incredible on the 2024 Oscars red carpet thanks to Celebrity hairstylist Danielle Priano. This half-up, half-down hairstyle, with serious length, is about to be the inspo for every baby shower this spring.

The Tease was fortunate enough to connect with Priano, who spilled exactly how she got the look for the mom-to-be using products from SexyHair, The Hair Shop, and Remington ONE styling tools. Of the look Priano shared, “For Vanessa at the Oscars today, we took a lot of inspiration from 90’s supermodels and added a modern twist. We wanted the look to have a nostalgic vibe.” Mission accomplished!

Get the Look:

  1. “We started by cleansing Vanessa’s hair using SexyHair Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner to ensure a clean, voluminous base. I initially towel-dried her hair gently and applied Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner, which doubles as a detangler, to prepare her hair for styling.
  2. I then applied SexyHair’s Volumizing Big Altitude Mousse to give the roots a lift and added the Shine Show Blow Out Spray for heat protection and additional shine. I used the Remington One Blow Dryer with a large round brush for a smooth blowout, ensuring the hair was completely dry and prepped for further styling.
  3. Next, I sectioned the hair and began adding The Hair Shop Pro 7 Clip-In Extensions 22” in 1B with a body wave from the nape upwards, stopping at the occipital bone. This technique added volume and length, creating an illusion of fuller hair.
  4. I applied Polished Up Pomade by SexyHair to smooth the hair and then pulled it into a chic half-up, half-down style, securing it with a ponytail holder. This step added a sophisticated, snatched, half-up vibe reminiscent of the ’90s supermodel era.
  5. I used the Remington One Curler to curl the hair and set the curls with rollers to cool and hold their shape, ensuring lasting volume and bounce. I then used SexyHair So Touchable Hairspray to lock in the curls while maintaining flexibility.
  6. I removed the rollers and gently brushed out the curls with a wide-tooth comb for a soft, flowing look.
  7. Lastly, I finished the hairstyle with SexyHair Spray and Play Harder (a firmer hairspray) for hold and SexyHair Smooth and Seal for an extra glossy finish, ensuring the hair looked stunning and stayed in place through the Oscars.”
