Vanessa Hudgens is nothing if not committed to her craft. First she chopped off her long dark locks and lived in a homeless shelter for two weeks for the upcoming drama Gimme Shelter. Now she’s dosed her head in peroxide and leaving extremely visible roots for Spring Breakers, costarring Selena Gomez. Okay, so maybe the photos of her new bleached tresses were taken before she visited Hair & Make-Up; we don’t know. That being said, if the film is about “[f]our college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work” like IMDB claims and the movie’s director is Harmony Korine (Of Kids fame. We are not joking), then Vanessa’s bedraggled look is almost certainly an artistic choice.
Either way, all that fried hair just confirms what we already suspected: Hudgens is picking movies that are actually good, versus ones that will make her look good in front of a camera. It’s all very Charlize Theron of her. We mean that as the highest compliment. So which movie makeover do you prefer? Gimme Shelter‘s short and dark, or her new bleachy-blond? We psyched to see her rock both on the big screen.
