Hollywood’s recent trend of stars cutting their lengthy strands shorter has been reversed by Julianne Hough! Before attending a party for Beyoncé‘s Mrs. Carter World Tour in Los Angeles, the star paid a visit to the Nine Zero One salon to take her chic bob into mile-long layers. Truth be told, a Beyoncé concert is reason enough for us to hit up the salon, but we thought the style’s transformative quality was perfect to change up your look for a holiday party, and caught up with the salon’s co-owners Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee to get their pro tips on DIY-ing a similar effect.
“To get Julianne’s look without the commitment of Great Lengths extensions, you can opt for Hair U Wear Put In Pieces,” the duo told InStyle.com. “These are clip-in extensions that can be used over and over again.” Clip-in additions can slip out if not placed correctly, so avoid any unexpected party fouls by first teasing the area you plan to apply the extensions with a fine-toothed comb. This gives the pieces a place to grip onto, and if you need extra insurance, give the backcombed portion a blast of dry shampoo or hairspray after positioning the hair clips. “It’s a perfect look for holiday because it’s versatile — it can be worn in a cute updo, or down with chic waves,” Lee and Capri added.
