Julianne Hough wore her hair in a finger wave to complement her Georges Hobeika seafoam gown, a look she perfected with the help of hairstylist Riawna Capri of the Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles. “We were channeling a ‘Midnight in Paris’ look,” Capri told exclusively. “We wanted something more polished and perfected so we all decided on a finger wave look, which isn't easy to create. I literally painted her hair with the curling iron. It was like drawing a picture, with hair!” Capri gave the complete breakdown on how to create the look—scroll down for step-by-step instructions!


1. “First, I blew her hair out with Wella’s Flowing Form,” said Capri. Find it for $14 at

2. “Then started my curling action. I sprayed each section lightly with Wella’s Stay Essential,” she said (shop it for $15 at “Then, I held the iron vertically and curled 2 inches clock wise then the next 2 inches counter clockwise then remainder hair back clockwise. It’s confusing, but it’s the best way to create this look with out getting poofy, allowing the curls to be flat to her head.”

3. “Once all the waves were in place I locked it in with Wella’s Dynamic Fix 45 Second Crafting Soray,” she said. Find it for $15 at

4. “Finally, I misted Wella's Shimmer Delight Shine Spray for a ton of shine!” Top off the look with the spray, available for $13 at
