Julianne Hough 'wants healthy hair'
Julianne Hough chopped her tresses to maintain its "healthy" look after consistently over-styling it.
The stunning actress is famed for her luscious long blonde locks, but debuted a dramatically shorter do at the 2011 Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills earlier this week.
An onlooker has revealed that Julianne and a friend dropped into Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood last Thursday to change her hairstyle.
"She was in a super good mood because it was her first day being done with all her [Footloose] press," the source tells Us Weekly.
"She wanted to cut her hair off to get it healthy from all the styling since she doesn't work until the New Year."
Julianne's calmer work schedule was apparently the catalyst to creating the shorter hairstyle. An onlooker added to People that the star thinks now is the best time to go ahead with the cut.
"[She] explained that she won't work again until the New Year, so now is the perfect time to repair the damage to her hair from so much recent styling," the onlooker explained.
Julianne has previously spoken about avoiding the stylist's chair. The 23-year-old beauty is particular when she experiments with her tresses.
"It costs a lot of money to get your hair done - it's not cheap - but you don't want to ruin it, and you want you go to the best person and the person who's going to keep it healthy," she previously revealed.
