Hot or Not? Julianne Hough’s Brunette Locks
Julianne Hough is the latest star to switch up her hair color. What do you think? Love it or hate it?
Man, it seems like everyone and their uncle is changing up their hair color these days, doesn’t it? Julianne Hough is the latest to hop on the bandwagon, transforming her normally blonde locks into shiny brunette tresses. What do you think, Bettys?
For comparison purposes, here’s how we’re used to seeing her:
Psssst: Guess what? Julianne didn’t actually dye her hair. According to People, her long brunette ‘do is a wig. The Rock of Ages star has donned it for her next role as a young woman with a mysterious past in the upcoming film Safe Haven, based on the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name. But guess what? Apparently underneath the wig, she’s chopped most of her hair off.
She revealed in a recent phone interview on boyfriend Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that she had given her hair the axe—dropping quite the bomb on Ryan as she went. “I just chopped off all of my hair,” she said with very little preamble.
“What do you mean, you chopped off all of your hair?!” Ryan exploded.
“I thought I’d give you a little surprise when I see you,” Julianne quipped. She didn’t do the Charlize Theron thing and buzz it all off; it does, however, hit just below her chin. Alas, we don’t have shot of her new haircut yet, though we can probably get a pretty good idea what it looks like from that time she cut it to her shoulders last October:
But all that aside, what do you think of the brown wig? To me, it does sort of look like a wig, though given the mysterious nature of Safe Haven, maybe that’s the point. She also looks like a totally different person with straight, brunette hair, so it seems to suit the role quite well.
Ryan apparently prefers Julianne’s hair blonde, but what do you think? Should she give a more permanent brunette look a shot?
Safe Haven also stars Josh Duhamel and is due out in 2013.
