Vanessa Hudgens only chopped her hair in July, but already, she’s going long. The actress showed up inside the Moët & Chandon suite at the U.S. Open in New York on Monday sporting some surprisingly lengthy locks. So what gives?

“I do love my short hair, but sometimes you just want to change things up a bit,” she told InStyle.com. “Tonight, I wanted to go boho. Short hair wouldn’t really work with this hat, so I just pulled these [extensions] out of my bag and clipped them in.”

Easy enough! Hudgens debuted the dramatic, cropped hairstyle earlier this summer, part of her physical transformation for her role in the upcoming film Gimme Shelter. “It was a completely new person,” she told PEOPLE at the time. “I really did look like a boy.” Tell us: Do you prefer Hudgens with long or short hair?
