She may feel "like a soccer mom" with her new haircut, but Vanessa Hudgens is working her super short crop on the red carpet the best that she can.

The actress, 22, who told Access Hollywood that she chopped off her own hair for her role as a pregnant, homeless teen in Gimme Shelter, stepped out at the Captain America premiere in L.A. on Tuesday night with a swept-back, textured 'do.

"I first transformed her haircut by removing the weight from the sides and creating more texture and movement," says celebrity stylist Jamal Hammadi.

Hammadi used a large wooden round brush to straighten her natural waves. Using a 1-inch iron he created random curls. Next, he pulled apart the curls with his fingers, giving it height and separation to make the texture look natural, chic and effortless. He finished by teasing her hair starting from the roots, then brushed his fingers through her hair once more before she walked out the door.
