Contrary to popular belief, going blond is not the biggest hair-color commitment a person can make - that honor goes to adventures in red. But as high-maintenance as the color may be, we've all had our moments of coveting Julia Roberts' lush auburn curls in Pretty Woman, or Molly Ringwald's fiery crop in Sixteen Candles, and as famous "redheads" like Emma Stone and Christina Hendricks might tell you, being a fake redhead is better than not being a redhead at all.
Apparently, we're not alone in admiring shades of red from afar. After years of lusting after the uncommon color, Julianne Hough finally took the plunge and went red-hot practically overnight. As Hough shared in her big Instagram reveal, she's been dying to try the Tori Amos-like shade for years. (Six, to be exact.) And for the record, this is one of only a few times that Hough has strayed from her usual buttery blond at all... so it's a pretty big deal.
