Julianne Hough Gets a Pixie!

Julianne Hough pixie cutAKM-GSI (2)

The “Hollywood Pixie Club” has a new member. Julianne Hough just debuted a major chop, and we’re totally shocked to see her longer do go.

The actress stepped out in Beverly Hills Saturday sporting a bold side-swept pixie with messy texture. It’s definitely a fresh look for the star, who loves to experiment with extensions. In December, she ditched her shorter hair for long chest-lengh add-ins, so we thought she would be growing her strands in 2014. But she went in the opposite direction.

The actress hinted at a hair transformation earlier this month, sharing the below photo on Instagram. “When the odd one or two extensions come out, this is what I save them for! Clearly I’ve gone mad…. And I love it!! Have a great day!!!!” she captioned the shot. (Looks like she totally had enough of her faux tresses, and wanted a fresh new cut.)

With Hough’s bone structure, she can pull off any cut, but we just weren’t ready to say goodbye to her swingy shoulder-length style — one of our favorite bobs ever. But we have a feeling the star will try plenty of new styles in the near future. Tell us: What do you think of Hough’s bold new do? Do you love the pixie trend? Can she pull it off?

Julianne would look beautiful in anything!!

Of course she can pull it off. She has a beautiful face. If you are going to cut your hair that short, you better have great features because long hair hides a multitude of imperfections. Short hair does not. It wouldn’t look good on me! I don’t like that cut on Miley Cyrus. She doesn’t have a cute enough face to pull that off.

These stars aren’t getting “pixies”….all they are doing is taking out all the extensions they wear………Jules loves attention so this is another of her look at me I’m cool stunts. Best thing Wicks and Seacrest ever did was leave her. She doesn’t love noone but herself…of course, it runs in her family.

Amy on

I don’t understand why she doesn’t go back to Dancing with the Stars. She can’t sing or act.

curtlyk on

Love it!

Amaryllis on

Yuck. She needs to grow it back.

Smithy on

OMG love it. I hated her choppy bob and her latest extensions. Now she needs a better stylist and she’ll be all set.

She is so beautiful that will look good with any haircut..,I still think Ryan Secrest is a FOOL for letting her go!!
They looked so good together ..,!!!

Someone should confiscate all scissors in Hollywood style salons! NO pixie, butchered, thin, mousy hair does not look as good as long full hair. Short hair changes a person’s face to a camera. Adds weight and fullness. They might look cute in person but not to the camera. If you work in a visual medium you should be concerned about that. Stylists only want to chop and hack away with little regard for what the camera will see. Hough’s request was for “a little trim” next thing you know she’s nearly bald!

Ris on

She has bad crow’s feets (and at her age!) . Plus with the extra weight (esp. Under chin), not a fan. She was very attractive on DWTS. She’s going to age horribly

peet on

As long as she is happy that is really all that matters! I think it is cute either way!

Lane on

It’s gonna show off her neck rings :(



care on

She is pretty but that hair cut does not fit her face sorry she looks best with longer hair JMO

Jessie on

I love short hair, can stand long hair, everyone I know that has long hair pull it up and sticks it on the top of their head, and this is not a pixie, to long, a pixie is very short, no long hair across the face. Julianne looks beautiful with both, and why all the hate if you can’t say something nice about someone don’t say anything at all.

abby on

No matter how perfect ones face is, short hair is masculine & not cute. The before pic is much cuter & attractive!

Kimberly on

Abby, that would be your opinion. Personally I think long hair is boring and drags a woman’s face down. I LOVE short hair and having had both long and short, I would NEVER go back to long. I might add that my entire family INCLUDING my husband says short hair looks tons better on me.
As for Julianne’s hair..it looks fine either way. BUT..her new cut is NOT a “pixie”. I don’t know why “People” calls every shorter cut a “pixie”.

S on

Ugh I hate this trend. It is not attractive on anyone. It makes all these stars look so much older than they are.

norman on

BAD MOVE! Her hair set off her entire LOOK!!

care on

sorry not saying anything mean ,but long hair And short hair can be right on the right people,

StopTheChop on

Now that’s just a shame.

reeta on

what the heck was she thinking. my gosh. what happened to this once talented, sweet, beauty?what an epic fall from grace. a horrible haircut, sadly to match a horrible career.

Mo on

I agree with MJ and Amy.

Melissa on

I don’t think half the women that i see have real “pixie” hair cuts. The closest that i have seen is the lady that plays Snow on Once upon a time.

Melissa on

I don’t understand what the big deal is about cutting your hair that short. Half the women don’t look good with their hair cut short BUT this is just my opinion and that’s fine :)

Gg on

I think it looks cute . Tired of all the long stringy hair in Hollywood.

Lorri on

Oh, no she didn’t! I loved her longer, flowing hair and her cute bob, but this is not flattering on her IMO. Maybe it’s just the lighting, but the color seems off as well. In the above pic, her skin and hair seem to be the same color!

pooty on

Her eyes scare me. Look like a devil.

Jackie M Villio on

Julianne has a classically beautiful face and can wear any hairstyle. Pamela Anderson does not and cannot.

Julianne has a classically beautiful face and can wear any hairstyle,however Pam Anderson does not and cannot.

Sable Senegal on

I don’t like her boy haircut that short.she needs to layer the bangs.my family styles female hair and they would even her locks out where it shows off her features.

Guest on

Not her best look. Some people can go short…Julianne is not one of them. She looks so much better in longer hair.

Sarah S. on

Yes, she can pull it off and looks wonderful and chic! Good for you, Julianne!!

Amber on

She looks more sophisticated, and less “girly”.

Wendy on

I’m not sure if I like it as it’s styled in the photo. I thought she looked great in the shaggy bob. Despite how pretty some may be, not everyone can pull off the pixie. I think one definitely has to be dressed to wear it!

Annie on

Congratulations you look like a boy now.

Kristina on

Ouch! Why?

jabba on

She’s a sheep a follower, everyone is doing this and it ages and looks horrible on all of them! She looked attractive with her longer hair, now she just looks plain and boring.

cynda p on

She is so overexposed, and for what? Dating Ryan Seacrest? The only person more obnoxious and over exposed is Heidi Klum.

blair on

I never think it is attractive to look like a man unless you are a man.
