Vanessa Hudgens doesn't like to spend a lot of time on her hair, and we get it.

"I feel like I kind of only pick hairstyles that are easy for me, because I am such a low maintenance person," the actress, who recently revealed a bob-length cut with bangs, revealed to E! News. While her new 'do appeals to her self-described "boho chic" aesthetic, it also keeps her beauty routine, relatively simple on a day-to-day.

"My everyday, go-to hairstyle is down," she said. "I feel like with this length, I kind of let my texture do its thing, blow out my bangs, throw on some bronzer and mascara and a lip, and I'm good to go."

Step 1: To prep the hair, apply Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock to damp hair to hydrate and add sheen. After 3-5 minutes, rinse the product out. 

Step 2: Blow dry or air day. If your hair needs more texture, add loose waves with an 1-inch barrel, alternating the direction of the curl.

Step 3: Spray Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray on the hair to give it grip. 

Step 4: Create a section of hair on the left or right side of your middle part, and place a rubber band around the hair, a few inches away from the scalp.

Step 5: Achieve a faux braid by creating an opening between the scalp and the rubber band, then pulling the end of the ponytail through.

Step 6: Create another section of hair directly under your first section and combine with the ends of the previous section, and secure with a rubber band, then repeat this technique until you have reached your desired end point. 

Step 7: Secure the faux braid by using a few Bobby-pins and rubber bands to keep it in place.

Step 8: Lightly pull the braid in opposite directions to expand and create more texture and interest, then lock it in place with hairspray.
