Julianne Hough found hair inspiration in the most magical of places for Disney night on Dancing With the Stars. Stylist Jill Buck of celeb-favorite 901 Salon turned Hough into Tinker Bell, complete with the coiffed bun and pointy bangs.
“A couple weeks ago I brought up the idea to Jules about doing a faux bang just for fun,” Buck tells Yahoo Beauty of how the ‘do came about. Hough was “totally into it” when the pair trialled the hair look, and it immediately made the dancer look like Tink. “Of course this was perfect timing for Disney Week on DWTS.”
The biggest tip Buck can give to those looking to try it out on their own is to manipulate the hair over and over until it looks real by keeping the sides longer and the front shorter. Impressively enough, Buck didn’t clip in a single bang piece, she managed to pull off the faux fringe using just the ends of Hough’s hair from a secured really really high pony tail.
Paired with a sparkly dress straight out of Neverland, soft pink blush and lips, and exaggerated freckles, Hough looked like a picture-perfect fairy.
Hough isn’t the first celebrity to turn to Disney princesses for hair inspiration. In the height of the Frozen craze, Emma Roberts rocked Elsa’s fishtail braid. With her long blond hair, it was the height of “Comic Con Couture.” The stylist behind the look is another 901 Salon stylist, Nikki Lee. (Hint: Next time you’re looking to transform into a literal princess, you know what salon to hit up.)
Fashion blogger Nisha of @thefashionista counts Princess Jasmine’s quintessential glammed up ponytail as one of her go-to styles. This princess braid is actually fairly easy to recreate: Simply separate your pony into sections using hair ties, and finish with a braid.
The most elaborate princess-inspired look so far this year is thanks to the closest person the muggle world has to an IRL Disney princess, Emma Watson. She wore her hair in two very appropriate rose-shaped buns to the Beauty and the Beast premiere.
Even the most recent Disney princess is on-trend with her hairstyle choices. Next time you rock a flower crown, feel free to call yourself Moana.
