She favored metallic eye shadows, wearing a shimmering gold, which was topped off with bronzer, a pink cream blush and a natural looking lip. The backless number looked classy while also showing off her insanely toned physique, exuding a sexy chic vibe. She left her blonde hair loose and curled around her shoulders as she posed for photographers. Her skin was glowing and looked natural and healthy.

How to Get Julianne Hough’s Loose Curls:

  1. Start with clean, towel-dried hair.
  2.  Apply a volumizing mousse, then blow dry your hair with a one and a half inch round brush to create a bouncy loose finish.
  3. Use a one-and-a-half or one-and-a-quarter-inch curling iron to curl one-inch vertical sections of hair. Curl them by rolling the iron away from your face and do not use the curling clamp. Keeping the clamp closed, wrap the hair around the iron and hold, keeping the ends left out to create the loose curls look.
  4. Once your hair is all curled, shake your hair out with your hands from underneath to create a messy – just came from the beach look.
  5. Finish with a medium-hold hairspray to finish.
