- Julianne Hough has long been a hair chameleon, but her latest chop is her most shocking yet.
- The dancer enlisted the help of her long-time stylist, Riawna Capri, for the short, blunt bob.
- Hough called her new look “freeing.”
Dancer and actress Julianne Hough got a dramatic haircut and she looks like a new person.
For the last couple of months, Hough has been rocking her signature blonde beach waves. But on Wednesday, the dancer debuted an Anna Wintour-inspired haircut and is nearly unrecognizable. Hough chopped off all her wavy locks in favor of the blunt bob-and-bang combo.
This isn’t the first time she’s made a dramatic hair transformation. Hough recently dyed her red hair back to her natural blonde color and – as is the case with drastic dye-jobs – she said it left her hair with a lot of damage.
Hough wrote in an Instagram caption that she went for the new drastic chop to get rid of the “frizzy ends,” but ended up loving the sudden change to her appearance.
“Detaching from what you know can be challenging, but also so freeing,” she wrote. “The best thing about hair is how you get to create, play and just have fun with it!”
Hough enlisted the help of her friend and longtime stylist, Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon, who dubbed the cut the “Frenchi Chic Bob.”
Hough’s new cut made its society debut at the “A Star Is Born” premiere last night.
Although this latest look is drastically different, Hough has been a hair chameleon for quite some time
The former “Dancing With The Stars” pro completely reinvented herself earlier this year when she dyed her signature blonde hair bright red. The actress told E! News that she thought the copper color was the best manifestation of her true self.
“I’ve been on this discovery and this journey of myself, just self-love and care, and I’ve always felt like a redhead,” she said. “At this point in my life I feel so grounded, I feel so myself, I feel very happy, and this is how I feel. I want to express that through my hair. I want to express that outwardly.”
Other than a brief stint as a brunette in 2010 for her role in “Footloose,” Hough has mostly been blonde.
In 2014 she rocked the ultra trendy pixie.
