Julianne Hough Long Straight Hairstyle - Light Blonde (Platinum)
Julianne Hough is flaunting her thick locks here in a sleek straight ‘do that compliments her heart shaped face shape nicely. The sharp center part highlights her symmetrical facial features and shows off her high cheekbones. Julianne’s naturally thick tresses look their best in longer ‘dos like the one seen here, and when worn straight, has a shiny, glossy finish. This style is easy to achieve with the right styling tools and can be worn day or night—just dress it up or down with makeup as needed.
Julianne’s color is also looking fabulous here and works well with her tanned complexion and bright blue eyes. Having very light eyes, she looks best in blonde hair shades that have a beige base to them. Here, she has gone for a chic platinum blonde color that has a hint of warmth to match her skin tone.
Julianne Alexandra Hough is an American dancer, singer, and actress. She is a two-time professional champion of ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

1 . Part the Middle
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.
2 . Use a Large Radial Brush
A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
5 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
6 . Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

7 . Apply Smoothing Shine
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
8 . Apply Hairspray
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
