With her upcoming wedding, it’s no wonder Hough doesn’t want to lose length, but the style allowed her to feel a little spunky while she waits it out. “We are growing her hair out, but as we all know, that gets boring!” Capri, whose clients also include Selena Gomez, Nina Dobrev and Hilary Duff, continues. “What I love about Jules is she is always ready to switch it up! We decided to do a beautiful beige blonde with a little modern-day shag at this length, and who knows, maybe there will be some bangs in the near future!”
