V-Hud & Austin's PDA
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler are inseparable at Venice Beach.
It looks like Vanessa Hudgens‘ signature raven locks are growing back nicely!

The starlet, who chopped off her hair to film Gimme Shelter, debuted a longer ‘do during lunch with a friend on Friday. Looking cute and casual in flared jeans and a baggy sweater, Vanessa was all smiles as she grabbed a sandwich and walked to her car.

During the summer, V-Hud dished to Celebuzz about how she felt when she cut off all her hair:

It was terrifying but I was so passionate about the character that I wanted to do everything that I could to make her great. During the fact it was great — I looked like a boy and it was awesome. But now that I’m home I’m like, “I’m stuck with this short haircut. What the hell am I going to do?!”

Well, it looks to us the young fashionista made it work somehow! Check out pics of her shorter hairdo below!
