Julianne Hough Debuts Bright Blonde Bob with Help from Celebrity Hairstylist Riawna Capri


Dancing with the Stars host Julianne Hough revealed a whole new look for the new year. The triple threat traded serious inches for the ever-popular bob and brightened everything up with the help of celebrity hairstylist, and Nine Zero One Salon co-owner, Riawna Capri. Talk about a transformation!

The Tease connected with Capri about the look including exactly which R+COLOR and R+Co Bleu products she used to create this stunning style. Keep scrolling for everything and more!

“We wanted a bright, bold change for the new year, and that we did!” reflects Capri, who says the decision to go for a significant chop had been brewing for months. “One day at Dancing with the Stars, it hit her — she was ready, I could feel it. We instantly started looking at the calendar to see when was best.”

Get the Color:

More than 300 foils with baby slices were expertly placed to create a soft, natural blonde from roots to ends. Hough’s vibrant color transformation was achieved using R+COLOR CHAIRLIFT Powder Lightener from  beginning with 5 volume MOMENTUM developer at the nape, gradually increasing to 15 volume and 20 volume as Capri moved toward the crown. The final touch involved toning the blonde to a bright and buttery shade using R+COLOR’s STELLAR Demi-Permanent Liquid 10.6/10V (Lilac) Lilac and 10.0/10N (Icicle).

Get the Style:

The Tease got the scoop on Hough’s daring new style directly from Capri including her go to R+Co Bleu styling products.

  1. “Before we blow-dried, we first prepped her hair with the F-Layer Deep Conditioning Serum because she just got fresh color, so this cream is perfect because it has treatment properties in it!
  2. After blow drying that in, and smoothing her hair with a flat iron, we used a lot of Optical Illusion Smoothing Oil throughout every section to make sure each hair was coated with shine!”
  3. Lastly we applied Elastic Styling Pomade to create a soft texture to keep her hair slightly piecey.”
