When “Dancing with the Stars” judge Julianne Hough married hockey player Brooks Laich on July 8, she looked absolutely stunning. From the strapless Marchesa gown she wore for the ceremony to the dreamy, sheer number she rocked at the reception, the bride looked utterly magical. And can we talk about her hair?

The couple has already enjoyed an epic honeymoon, and we still can’t stop thinking about her bridal ‘do.

As it turns out, Hough’s lighter locks were actually inspired by a childhood photo seen by the woman responsible for her baby blonde highlights: Her pal and hairstylist, Riawna Capri from Nine Zero One Salon in Los Angeles. The strand whisperer — who also tends the tresses of Kristin Cavallari, Nina Dobrev and Sarah Hyland — shared the details of Hough’s hue transformation via Instagram (click right for more photos).

What struck us most is that even after all that bleach the 28-year-old’s strands looked more gorgeous than ever. Not a hint of damage in sight.

How is that even possible? Capri said she used Joico Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo ($17) — along with the matching conditioner ($18) and luster lock ($20). "(It) really brought the health and shine back into her hair,” she told the site Byrdie.
