The People’s Choice Awards was held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California on January 11, 2012. The only thing more exciting than awaiting for the much-anticipated results, was seeing the glamorously decked out celebrities. Vanessa Hudgens, in particular, shined in her black and gold spider-web inspired gown by designer, Jenny Packham. She looked far more sophisticated and grown-up that night, than in her High School Musical days of the past.
With a plunging neckline and smoldering eyes, Vanessa oozed sex appeal. Her gold earrings complimented the golden detail on her dress perfectly. One of the most noticeable things about Vanessa’s appearance that night was her seemingly effortless messy up do, which pulled her entire look together. To create your own sultry updo, follow these easy steps:
Wash your hair the night before you plan on styling your hair. The added oil from the day will help make your hair more manageable and will keep it in place better than if your hair is freshly washed. Towel dry your hair and then add a smoothing cream. Scrunch the ends of your hair while applying a light gel or spritzing a sea-salt spray from root to end. Allow your hair to air dry overnight…
When your are ready to put your hair up, comb the roots of your hair slightly with a wide tooth comb. Make sure you do not over comb it, you simply want to comb out the wave at the top three inches. Pull back the top of your hair, making sure that you leave some volume at the top, and use bobby pins to pin the hair into place. Next pin the sides and bottom up loosely against your head, roughly three to four inches away from your hair line .Take the remainder of your hair in the back and twist into messy one inch sections, and secure with a bobby pin. To finish the look, spray with a light hair spray to keep hair in place.
