If Vanessa Hudgens‘ new brown, red, and blonde ombre reminds you a bit of autumn, you’ve nailed her inspiration. The 24-year-old debuted her fall-inspired colors at Ulta Beauty’s 2nd Annual “Donate With a Kiss” event at the Nomad Hotel in New York City last night. “I’ve never been this light before and I love bright colors and just having fun with that,” Hudgens told InStyle.com, even comparing her color to a “fall leaf.” “With fall here now, I wanted to embrace it and translate it into beauty.” Hudgens first went with a blonde ombre back in August and dished to InStyle.com just what prompted the change: “I actually did it for this movie. My director wanted me to be a blonde and I was like, ‘ombre is the only way I’m going to be kind of blonde.’ With this dark hair, it’s just not going to happen!” Hudgens laughed. So tell us in the comments below, what do you think of her fall-inspired shades?
