If you are a year round blonde or like to highlight for summer you know caring for blonde hair can be tricky. I have tried a lot of purple shampoo’s and hands down the best I have used is Unite’s Blonda Shampoo. For those new to the land of blonde highlights, violet toned shampoos help keep your blonde color cool, shiny and gorgeous instead of the dreaded brassiness that is common with lightened hair. Celebs like Julianne Hough use it to brighten her blonde hair and look great on the red carpet.

Overview: Texture and volume were the key elements of Julianne Hough’s hair created by stylist Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon.
1.) Julianne’s Hair was prepped with UNITE’s Blonda Shampoo & Condition to brighten the tone of Julianne’s blonde hair for the special event and followed with a ton of UNITE 7SECONDS Condition. UNITE 7Seconds was used to not only detangle and condition the hair, but the extreme amount helped to make the hair super clean and slippery to ensure that some hair fell out to add to the final edginess of the look.
2.) For maximum root volume, UNITE EXPANDA Volume was applied 1-3 inches from the roots.
3.) Hair was then round brushed with a UNITE Pro-System 74mm Round brush.
4.) Once hair was dry, UNITE EXPANDA Dust was sprinkled throughout the root area on the top of the head
5.) Starting in the back, Riawna used small, horizontal sections on the top of the head, backcombing the hair 1-2 inches from scalp to create instant volume. She then continued forward to the hairline leaving out the final front section. The final backcombed “mohawk” was clipped out of the way.
6.) The sides were slightly teased throughout for added texture and volume.
7.) A soft, natural parting in the hair was made on both sides near the temple area.
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.
9.) Starting with the front 3 inches of the top section, Riawna 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 in place. The alternating sections continued until the top section was complete creating a “twisted mohawk”.
10.) Once hair was set in the general form, she sprinkled UNITE EXPANDA Dust on areas that still need more texture, pulled the hair slightly with fingers and rubbed together to create whispy strands
11.) The look was finished with UNITE SESSION-Max Hairspray for extra strong hold to last all evening.
12) UNITE SHINA-Mist was applied for overall red-carpet shine
Quotes from Riawna Capri, Nine Zero One Salon:
“Sheek, Edgy and sophisicated”
“Julianne ’s dress was so beautiful and glamorous, we wanted to add a bit of edge with the hair and makeup to give a slight contrast that created the final overall look.”
Love the look on Julianne! The soft pink is gorgeous with her skin tone and her eyes look amazing!

The adorable Julianne Hough lands the February cover of Cosmopolitan. In the interview, Hough reveals that she was abused mentally and physically while living in London as a young girl. She also discusses her relationship with Ryan Seacrest and her upcoming film, Safe Haven: a story of a girl who survives horrific abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend who eventually learns to open up and accept the love of a handsome widower played by Josh Duhamel (in theaters February 14th).
Hough on her time in the UK as a child where she studied dance at London’s prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Arts:
“I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love.”
With her parents an ocean away, Hough says the adults around her took advantage. “While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” she says. In what way or by whom exactly, she declines to say: “I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody. What’s past is past.” A ripple of tension tightens a face that is always so relaxed and bright, like a sheet being pulled tight. It got worse, she says, “when I started hitting puberty, when I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl.”
On not speaking much about the situation prior to now:
“This is the farthest I’ve ever gotten into my London situation. I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can’t go back. I have to be this person.”
On her upcoming film, Safe Haven:
On the set of Safe Haven, director Lasse Hallstrom called on Hough to improvise in ways she’d never done before. He even asked her to speak, in character, on camera, about “some of the horrors she had been exposed to in London” as a way of revealing her character’s painful past. So one night, in a small house in the woods of North Carolina, [co-star Josh] Duhamel and Hough took off their clothes and got into bed. As the cameras rolled, Hough spoke for nearly an hour: “I went from bawling to containing to laughing to crying again. Josh was crying. I think it was the most therapeutic moment of my life.”
Enjoy the trailer for ‘Safe Haven’ below! I hope that this movie is good. I loved ‘Dear John’ and HATED ‘The Vow’.
