The pixie may be the haircut of 2013, but Julianne Hough is going against the beauty grain. The star has a new hair motto: #longhairdontcare.
Hough debuted extensions — courtesy of stylists Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee at the Nine Zero One salon in Hollywood — on Tuesday at a pre-concert event for Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter tour in L.A. And she’s definitely loving the look, sharing her transformation on Instagram with the caption “#changeisgood.”

Capri also posted a snap of the actress’s transition from short to long. Originally, the Great Length extensions (a favorite brand in Hollywood) went past her waist, before Capri cut them into a chest-length angled chop. It also looks like Hough cut some long piecey side bangs to complete her look.
“Don’t worry, It’s just for a project… @juleshough signature short hair will be back eventually,” Capri captioned the above photo. She then told PEOPLE, “Julianne needed a lot of Great Lengths extensions to blend, because she herself has thick hair as well as her hair was so short. We wanted to give her a long shag for an edgier, piecey look. She loves it and can’t wait to rock different hair styles!”
As saucy as the look is, we’re happy to hear her new do is only for a role, because we loved her amazing lob. But we also think it’s fun to change things up (read about one editor’s experience with extensions here). Are you a fan of Hough’s long hair? Sound off below!
