Fresh off her performance in "Grease: Live," everyone’s favorite blonde darling has gotten a daring new haircut. Julianne Hough has had her own Sandy-like transformation!
Hough’s shaggy new look was created by her hairstylist, Riawna Capri, who shared the inspiration behind the new 'do.
"Julianne is in the process of growing out her hair. She wanted a change, but nothing crazy," Capri explained. "What better way than to add some piece-y texture and some face-framing layers?"
“This new look totally works on Hough since she has a cool-girl vibe and this haircut is all about attitude,” added celebrity hairstylist Matt Fugate of Serge Normant at John Frieda. However, Fugate warns that this look can become dated very quickly if it gets over-styled. (Think more edgy rock star, less Rachel from "Friends" circa the '90s.)
If you are itching to try this look out yourself, be sure to show your stylist exactly what you want ... and what you don't want. "What 'a few piecey layers' means to you may not mean the same to your stylist. Pictures are key!" said Capri, who cautioned that this would not be an ideal look for those with very curly hair.
While Capri said Hough won’t likely keep this style for long — she likes to change her style often — it seems like the shag-style trend isn't going anywhere. Naomi Watts is rocking a similar look as well!
How to get the look:
Make sure it is more of a free-hand cutting style, Fugate said.
What you want is lots of chopping and texturing without harsh, blunt lines, he explained. Fugate said a razor is a great option if you have the kind of hair that can handle it!
“The key really is in the styling or, rather, lack thereof! Let it air dry or lightly rough dry it, but don't get in there with a crazy blowout moment,” he said.
