About Jennifer Hudson, Her Hair, Her Style, And Achievements In Music, Films And Life

Jennifer Hudson is not afraid of changing a hairstyle to fit in with the styles, roles and places she goes.  And, she makes every style memorable, from a coily Bob-hairstyle to a very short Pixie-haircut and a few long, naturally curly hairstyles.

Jennifer Hudson – Hairstyles that give Glamour and Style from 2004 -2017

Changing from long bangs hairdo’s to springy short curls:  In 2004, Jennifer Hudson, started out with multi-coloured highlights in a long bangs hairdo, as a contestant in “American Idol.”  2006 showed her with curls swept up, in a half-down/half-up, kind of princess-style.  In 2007, Jennifer Hudson, sported a springy mass of shiny, short, corkscrew curls, attending a fete in the honour of Clive Davis.

At the “Academy Awards” in 2007, those corkscrew curls turned into retro curls, swept to one side to create the feel of an old Hollywood glamour.

2008 to 2009 started a short-hair period, which started out with a sweet, chin-length spiral haircut, changing to a razor-sharp, sleek bob with a slightly tousled bang, look.  At an Image Awards ceremony in 2009, she made her entrance with a new, piece-y, choppy, shag cut.

2010 brings back the longer hairstyles.  At the “52nd Annual Grammy Awards”, Jennifer Hudson wore her hair in a sleek, high ponytail with bangs that grazed her eyelashes.  2011 she sported a sexy, Bettie Page-style look, with bangs and long curly, loose waves in her hair.

Through 2011 the long hair style continued with straightened, flattened hair , parted down the centre, in an Haute Hippie-style or with bronzed tips.   At the “83rd Annual Academy Awards” she wore hair in a classy up-do, tinted with auburn highlights.

Long and straight with bangs or parted in the middle, and long and wavy or soft curls, swept up to one side, Haute Hippie and Betty Page-styles, and braids, all made way for the Tousled Pixie in 2014.

Jennifer Hudson demands attention with her short Pixie Power cut, 2015, and the still shorter haircut-style, she now sometimes, wears.

Here’s Jennifer Hudson’s hairstyles over the years.

Mermaid Gown brought some bridal glam at the Manus x Machina Fashion in an Age of Technology Costume Institute Gala with her strapless white H&M mermaid gown and styled her short hair in a slick wet look mode.

We can't get enough of Jennifer's super cute layered pixie cut hair with bangs. She teamed her hairstyle with a radiant knitted halter bodycon dress that emphasizes her lovely curves at the 2016 March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon.

Jennifer Hudson rocked a technicolor spaghetti fringe dress and some cute short and chic straight pixie cut hairstyle on top of her appearance at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards Press Room. It takes a confident and fierce woman to wear such hairstyle, but the singer and actress does it with ease.
