Hinata has straight dark blue hair, which she has in a hime-style haircut, that reaches her lower back, while the short strands that frame her face is shoulder-length. Like the rest of her clan, she has fair skin and customary Byakugan which, when activated, stimulates the veins and arteries immediately around her eyes to protrude much more prominently.
Hinata's attire is comprised of a loose fitting, lavender and cream hooded-jacket with lavender cuffs with navy blue pants and black, low-heeled sandals. She also wears her forehead protector around her neck. The cuffs of the jacket are rolled up to the middle of her forearms.
When Sasuke makes his return back to Konohagakure, Hinata is among the few shinobi who comes to congratulate his return. Later, Hinata comes up with a plan of trying to get close to Naruto by transforming into Sasuke. Once she transforms and approaches Naruto she acts completely different from Sasuke, causing Naruto to find him strange. Afterwards, Hinata joins her teammates in a game of kick the can with Sasuke being "it". The group fails to capture the can due to Sasuke using his Sharingan to gain the advantage, however, Naruto completely transforms into the Nine-Tails and kicks not only the can away but Sasuke and destroys half of the village.
