She’s pretty fearless when it comes to her hair, having recently gone shorter and lighter, but this is by far the most daring do Julianne Hough has ever sported.

In celebration of the Met Gala’s punk theme, the actress opted for an updo that complements the spiderweb-like pattern on her Topshop dress.

“It’s literally like we created a fishnet over the back of her head,” says co-owner of Nine Zero One Salon
Riawna Capri, who jokes that she used “like a hundred” black bobby pins. (Check out this cute behind-the-scenes photo!)

To get the look, which was inspired by something similar Capri spotted on a Zac Posen runway, she prepped Hough’s hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse for volume in the front and a heat protectant to add shine. After blow-drying she applied Vidal Sassoon Mega Firm Hold Gel before creating three mini ponytails on either side of Hough’s head so the hair would stay taut against her head.

“Basically after that we just pinned and pulled and crossed over throughout until we created the fishnet looking thing.”

Capri used a roller to add lift to Hough’s bangs and after much deliberation, they decided to put her fringe up. She then misted the do with two different Vidal Sassoon hairsprays (“once we decided we loved it, we locked it in with a strong hold formula.”)

We doubt Hough ever went through an actual punk phase, but it appears that she enjoyed her one night as a beauty rebel.

Her hair does NOT “look this good” matter of fact she looks horrible. She should have left her looks alone.

Another thing…why is she at the MET GALA? I thought you had to be a celeb to be there…she isn’t.
