Julianne Hough's Post-Engagement Hair Makeover Isn't What We Expected (PHOTOS)

julianne houghThe big headline news should be all about Julianne Hough's recent engagement to hockey player Brooks Laich, but instead the buzz is stirring about how she celebrated: Julianne got a new hairstyle


Okay fine, she already had an appointment set before she got the bling, but we're still a little confused as to why she went so short! Check out the choppy blond bob.

Unless this bride is planning a long engagement, we would have expected her to grow her hair out so it's ready for a bevy of updo options on the big day. 

More from The Stir: Julianne Hough's Secrets to Staying in Shape Are Surprisingly Simple

Celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri, who also tousles the tresses of Demi Lovato and Lizzy Caplan, is the mastermind behind Hough's new cut, which she's calling #TheJulianne. She said her goal behind the new haircut was for simple maintenance.

She told Us:

Julianne's been on tour for two months, so she was due for her traditional touch-up. We dusted her ends to keep them healthy, so that her hair will continue to grow, and we brightened up her highlights.

By the way, while "The Julianne" is catchy and all, we're sooooooo not ready for another "The Rachel" just yet. (Remember when The Rachel was the hottest hairstyle, but there was no such thing as a hashtag, Twitter, or Instagram to capture all the photos? Sigh...) 

At any rate, while we think Julianne's cut looks really fab on her, we can't help but wonder if she'll be like most of the other brides who opt for longer locks and grow it out before her big day. Guess there are always extensions, right?
