OMG. Have you seen Julianne Hough's new bob haircut? It's beyond adorable -- and I'm loving the platinum shade of blond she went for as well.
Forget long, layered locks -- chic bobs seem to be all the rage these days, but Julianne probably wasn't going for trendy when she headed to the salon this time around. Nope -- she was lookin' for some awesome breakup hair to go along with her newly single status.
It came as a bit of a surprise when Julianne and Ryan Seacrest split after nearly three years together, so it's understandable that she wanted a fresh look to go along with the new, independent phase of her life.
Oh come on -- don't act like you haven't felt the urge to alter your appearance in one way or another after a breakup. We all have, because it's true what they say -- looking good is the best revenge.
Back to the haircut itself, which I'm drooling over. I've wanted this exact hairdo for years. Years, people. It's so cute and sassy, and it looks so much easier to style than the longer locks I've had for most of my adult life.
But as great as this style looks on Julianne, I'm terrified to try it myself, because I'm pretty sure I'll wind up hating and/or regretting it. My hair has a natural wave to it, which got even more pronounced after the birth of my son. I'm guessing if I chopped it all off, it wouldn't be smooth and straight like hers unless I flat ironed it every day -- which just isn't healthy.
And another thing -- I have a round face. And round faces and short hair usually don't mix. I'm afraid that if I go the chin-length route, I'll wind up looking like I have a double chin because my face will appear fat.
But who knows? Maybe I'll be really surprised and come out of the hair salon somewhat resembling Julianne -- at least for a few hours or so. Hmm. Should I go for it?
Have you tried the bob yet?
