If there’s someone we can turn to for some boho-inspiration, it’s our beloved Vanessa Hudgens. This free spirit loves to change up her look, but you always get the sense that she’s got a playful and down-to-earth attitude about it. Barring the occasional side-eye we gotta throw her way when she treads into cultural appropriation-y territory, her ethereal, hippie look is ever-changing and usually totally adorable. And even though it’s only November, we can’t help but look back on all the times we felt our hearts flutter when she hit the red carpet or blessed us with a selfie on Instagram.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? And if we pick up some hair inspo for the rest of the year along the way, so be it!

Is there anything in the world as cute as Vanessa’s double buns?

We think not.

And could this wavy lob be more on trend?

No. No, it could not.

Vanessa is a true flower child with this whimsical hairstyle.

That red eye makeup is very on trend, too!

Here she is bringing some Old-Hollywood realness to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

We dead.

Who do we need to talk to about getting Vanessa’s Rizzo from Grease: Live hair?

Yes, we know it’s a wig and we care not!

Her long, Rapunzel-esque locks are classic Vanessa — they just capture her essence, don’t you think?

What an angel emoji.

Sometimes, all you need is a little half-bun to look chic as hell.

How does she look so effortless and cool when she does it and we look so dorky?

Or, sometimes you need a full bun, but we love how this brunette beauty is able to rock a messy and sleek bun at the same time!

Like, what kind of magic is this?

Her slicked-back look at the People’s Choice Awards was an off-beat inspiration to us all!

She really can pull off the edgiest looks and look comfortable and cool while doing it.

The year’s not over yet, and we can’t wait to see what other hairstyles Vanessa has in store for us. Which was your favorite?
