Texture and volume were the key elements of Julianne Hough's hair created by stylist Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon. “Julianne’s dress was so beautiful and glamorous; we wanted to add a bit of edge with the hair and make-up to give a slight contrast that created the final overall look,” says Capri. Learn how to prep, create the sides and top to this chic, edgy and sophisticated style below.
STEP 1: Hough’s hair was prepped with Unite's Blonda Shampoo and Conditioner to brighten the tone.
STEP 2: For maximum root volume, Unite Expanda Volume was applied 1-3 inches from the roots.
STEP 3: Hair was then round brushed.
STEP 4: Once hair was dry, Unite Expanda Dust was sprinkled throughout the root area on the top of the head.
STEP 5: Starting in the back, Capri used small, horizontal sections on the top of the head, backcombing the hair 1-2 inches from scalp to create volume. She then continued forward to the hairline leaving out the final front section. The final backcombed “Mohawk” was clipped out of the way.
STEP 6: The sides were slightly teased throughout for added texture and volume.
STEP 7: A soft, natural parting in the hair was made on both sides near the temple area.
STEP 8: Each side was split into a top and bottom section. Each section was twisted into the back towards the nape, made into a mini ponytail and pinned.
STEP 9: Starting with the front three inches of the top section, Capri twisted the hair over towards the left and pinned in place. The second section was then alternated to twist toward the right side and pinned into place. The alternating sections continued until the top section was complete creating a “twisted Mohawk.”
STEP 10: Once hair was set in the general form, Unite Expanda Dust was sprinkled on areas that still need more texture.
STEP 11: The look was finished with a strong hold hairspray.
