Julianne Hough's hairstylist swears by this 1 brightening shampoo for blondes

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).

Here it is babes! 🎨 @JulesHough wedding color formula! Swipe right to see what we were starting with 😏 and some Fun extra pics. For all you hairstylist out there, this is for you! (If you're not a hairstylist, feel free to double tap and get back to your feed about now, cuz the rest will be jibberish 😘😜) #LiveTheBlondeLife, and this is how: For all of you who were asking if she was a bleach and tone, absolutely not, we wanted her to be super bright like when she was 8 years old, so she needed some of her natural color to remain looking effortless. I took my time and did a full blown heavy ass baby fine highlight, leaving no space in between the next foil, all baby highlights back to back. I started at the nape of her neckline with 10vol + @joico #BlondeLife Lightener. And once I got up to the middle of her ears, I switched to 20 vol. All the way until I was at the top of her crown, then switched to 30vol until about an inch away from her hairline, I switched back to 20vol, and on her actual hairline I used 10 vol again. I think I had to remix about 7 full bowls of bleach total. No joke. Once all the foils were in, I finally got my glass of Rosé 😏 I took out the ones at the bottom that were ready to go, patiently waited for the rest to catch up, then washed 19 pounds out of her hair. So, The secret trick to make her sparkle ✨ is painting 40vol on her entire hairline at the bowl for 5 minutes. 😉 Her toner was sweet and simple: 9NV+9V+Clear all equal parts of #Joico #Lumishine. Not only was the tone perfection, the condition and shine you get after leaving it on 10 mins is incredible. Then sealed the deal with K-Pak Revitaluxe. No joke, after 19 pounds of bleach, her hair felt like butter!!! 2 appointments and 10 hours later, Jules had her perfect wedding color. ❤️❤️❤️

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.
