Vanessa Hudgens' Style Evolution

Vanessa Hudgens has come a long way since her High School Musical days of dating Zac Efron, to being a Spring Breaker and showing off her acting chops on Broadway. Her style has significantly evolved in tandem with her career, from wearing headbands and bell bottoms to being a street style star in her own right.

2006

Here she is in her early-2000's glory, just at the start of the High School Musical saga. This mere teenager looks every part the Disney Channel Star in her cringe-inducing layered rhinestone tee and oversize headband. They were dark times.

2007

At the MTV Movie Awards, Vanessa looks a little more grown up in a gown, but still making some questionable choices when it comes to accessorizing. That floral halter and that belt are just sooo 2000's.

2009

Two years later, at the MTV Movie Awards, Vanessa looks a little less sugary sweet as she experiments with bangs, darker hair, and a sexier silhouette. I think the apricot works on her bronze skin, but the hair (read: bangs) was not her best look.

2010

At the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscars party, Vanessa Hudgens was still dating Zac Efron, and hadn't yet fully come into her own style. Wearing Jenny Packham, she looked amazing, but her hair and makeup still screamed stuck in the aughts.

2012

Finally breaking out of her safe styling mold, Vanessa looked beautiful wearing Temperley London at the Spring Breakers Premiere in Venice. The plunging neck and intricate beading were a little more fashion forward than she's worn before.

2013

Vanessa took a major fashion risk at the YouTube Music Awards, in this decorative gown that covered her svelte frame from head-to-toe. Her classic hair and makeup kept the look glamorous, and I applaud her for stepping out of the plunging neck monochrome gown look.

2014

At the Young Hollywood Awards, for which she won the trendsetter of the year award, Vanessa looked trendy and adorable. I loved the bob on her, with just a touch of ombré, and it so nicely showed off her toned shoulders. The crop top and high-waisted maxi skirt combo is fashion-forward and flattering, but the denim and color palette keep it fairly casual.

2015

At the CFDA Fashion Awards, wearing Sachin & Babi and looking beyond sophisticated, Vanessa is all grown up. She wears different silhouettes and tries the not-too-obviously sexy approach to styling herself (hello, hair pulled tightly back), and fashion rewards her for it.

Street style today

Today, Vanessa is a street style maven who can't seem to dodge the paparazzi. Her everyday wear is trendy and sexy, with just the right accessorizing and styling.
I can safely say I've gone from laughing at Zanessa to drooling over Vanessa's fashion-forward outfits, every time the camera catches her.

Why Is Shampoo Bad For Your Hair? And How To Wash Instead.
Certain chemicals found in some shampoos can be harmful to your hair. While this is not a call to stop using shampoos entirely, it should make you aware that there are alternatives available if you want to pursue them! Having said that, what are some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. It shortens the life of your hair. That's a fancy way of saying that if you use shampoo, you'll have to wash your hair more frequently, which sounds counterintuitive. Shampoos, in general, can leave a nasty buildup of chemicals on your scalp, which can wreak havoc on your skin over time. Your scalp will eventually become so saturated with these chemicals that it will do strange things like overproduce oils this is probably why my scalp is so greasy. 2. It causes frizz in your hair. This is particularly true for those of us who have curly hair. I know I don't look it based on my profile picture, but my hair can get pretty loopy if left to its own devices. I have noticed that it frizzes up significantly more after washing it with shampoo than when I leave it alone. 3. It will trap you in a viscious cycle. You'd like to stop using shampoo, but if you do, your scalp will go nuts producing oils, making you look completely ridiculous. Try waiting a couple of weeks, your scalp will calm down. Stay strong and don't give in to the urge and shampoo before that. If you want to get away from the shampooing craze, do this when you don't have to be seen in public for a good 2 weeks! 4. It's also wasteful. Using shampoo is apparently frowned upon in the “zero waste” community. This is because most people go through it quickly especially if you have longer hair, and as a result, you'll end up using a lot of plastic bottles. Shampoo alternatives are much more environmentally friendly, as you'll see in a moment. 5. It cannot be washed away. This is a little ironic. Shampoo removes almost everything from your hair except itself. Because your hair is porous, it absorbs whatever is in your shampoo like a sponge over time. You'll have hair loss issues if you use a cheap shampoo or one with chemicals that don't mix well with your scalp. The only way to truly remove the shampoo gunk from your hair is to use a super-strong shampoo designed specifically for this purpose, or to simply wait it out and let your scalp dispose of it naturally. What can you do now that you're aware of some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. Use the “No-Poo” method. This method essentially eliminates shampoo from the equation. One of the simplest ways to start is to use a small amount of conditioner in your hair while showering instead of lathering up a wad of shampoo and conditioner every time you wash up. Conditioner is gentler on your hair than shampoo and should keep your scalp and strands moisturised without causing too much damage. 2. Use alternative scalp and hair cleansers. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a shampoo substitute. Some people seem to tolerate it better than others, as some have complained that the vinegar smell is unbearable, while others claim they don't notice anything. I suppose it all depends on the individual. In essence, apple cider vinegar acts as a natural conditioner. To combat any salad dressing-like after-smells, this blog suggests mixing two tablespoons of vinegar with water and rosemary. 3. Make use of natural shampoos. Those who said they had no luck with “no-poo” or apple cider vinegar reported success with natural shampoos. These are shampoos made entirely of natural ingredients, as you might expect. To find them, on online shopping sites (just type in "natural shampoos") is your best bet, though I'm sure your local Walmart has a selection of products like this as well. Labels, as always, should be avoided. Always read the ingredients on the back of the bottle to ensure that the shampoo you're considering is truly "natural." What do you have to lose by trying out this new anti-shampoo craze if you have greasy, frizzy hair? It appears to be working for many people, so it's worth a shot! Do speak to your hair specialist if you have any prexisting scalp issues.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Many patients ask us, "How does laser hair removal work?" But, more often than not, what they really want to know is, "Is laser hair removal safe and effective, and will it work on me?" Laser hair removal may sound like a terrifying procedure that involves shooting a laser gun at your skin like something from a spy movie. However, this is not how laser hair removal actually looks. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why when you learn how effective it is. We'll answer your questions here so you can make the best choice for your lifestyle and skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Safe Obviously, the most important question to ask whenever you try a new skin treatment is whether it is safe. When you're out in public, everyone can see your skin. People are usually scared of the word "laser" when it comes to laser hair removal because it sounds dangerous. The truth is that the lasers used in laser hair removal are extremely effective at destroying only hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed. The US FDA strictly regulates all lasers used for hair removal to ensure their safety. Hair removal lasers are referred to as "lasers" because they emit extremely concentrated light. This specialised light is absorbed by your hair follicles, which convert the light energy into heat. Heat harms your hair's follicle, which is responsible for hair growth. This targeted damage to the hair follicle is what removes unwanted hair and reduces the likelihood of it growing back. Hair removal lasers are designed to target melanin in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives colour to your body hair. The laser targets the hair from the shaft down into the follicle by using the contrast between the melanin and your skin. Because laser hair removal works by reducing the ability of your hair follicles to regrow hair, it must be done gradually. The fact that the procedure is done over time contributes to the procedure's safety because the laser's level is low enough to damage only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Worth Your Investment Laser hair removal requires an investment of your time; however, when you consider how long the results will last, it is relatively inexpensive. Consider how much time and money you spend on your current hair removal method when deciding whether or not laser hair removal is a good option for you. For example, if you shave your legs, try keeping track of how much time you spend shaving each week. Then figure out how many razor-head replacements you go through in a week. Then multiply this cost by the number of weeks and months in a year to get the current, annual cost of hair removal. The Time Commitment Laser hair removal can take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions, depending on your skin and hair type. The length of each session is determined by the size of the area being shaved. Small areas, such as the upper lip or armpits, can take 5-15 minutes, whereas larger areas, such as your legs or back, can take up to an hour per session. You can expect to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions. This is due to the fact that hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective at killing your hair when it is actively growing. One of the most common mistakes people make with laser hair removal is going to a couple of sessions, seeing a reduction in hair growth, and then failing to return for their remaining sessions. What is actually happening when you notice this initial reduction in hair growth is that your hair is in a dormant period and will re-grow quickly once this cycle is completed. That is why it is essential to attend the recommended number of sessions. How Much Money Do You Really Spend? The average cost of laser hair removal is between $300 and $500. However, this varies greatly depending on the size of the area you're removing hair from and the number of sessions your hair requires. Many facilities offer financing for aesthetic treatments. The initial cost of this hair removal method may appear to be high. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is expected to provide months to years of smooth skin at a time. If you multiply the amount you currently spend on shaving or waxing over months and years, the cost is likely comparable to what you'll pay as a one-time fee for laser hair removal. You may be wondering why, if laser hair removal works so well and is so inexpensive, not everyone is doing it. The truth is that there are numerous misconceptions about laser hair removal that deter people from using it. How to Get Ready There are things you can do to prepare your skin for a healthy laser hair removal session, as well as things you can do to care for your skin after each session. The best way to decide whether to commit to laser hair removal is to speak with your skin specialist about your hair removal options.

6 Laser Hair Removal Myths Busted And More
Have you ever calculated how much time you devote to hair removal? Hair removal on the legs, underarms, brows, and arms has become a daily, weekly, and monthly ritual, but it does not have to be. Hair removal is a time-consuming and thankless task because it keeps growing back. Shaving, waxing, and threading all have advantages, but what if you didn't have to choose any of these because the hair was permanently removed?

If your nipples appear to be pointing downward and you want them to face forward, you may benefit from a breast lift. Many women who have breast lifts are unhappy with how their breasts seem when they wear a bra. In a bra, a breast raise can make your breasts appear rounder, fuller, and more attractive. It can also treat asymmetry or a tuberous appearance of the breasts that may have developed since puberty or as a result of breastfeeding. If you're unhappy with the size of your breasts after your breast lift, talk to your doctor about a breast reduction or breast augmentation with fat. What Should I Anticipate? It will take a few months for your newly shaped breasts to settle into place after your breast lift. The benefits, on the other hand, are long-lasting. Your body will continue to age and be affected by gravity, but you will be able to enjoy the results of your treatment for decades.

Maintain an active lifestyle and a healthy weight for the greatest outcomes.
