From Footloose to scissor happy!

Blond star Julianne Hough debuted a much shorter, shoulder-length hairdo when she hit the Hollywood Film Awards gala in La-La Land this week.

The bubbly, 23-year-old wore her newly shorn coif bouncy and wavy while flaunting some sexy cleavage in a plunging nude gown.

So why the sudden chop job?

After the styling stress her tresses endured during her Footloose press tour, Julianne wanted to "get it healthy," an onlooker at the Nine Zero One salon—where the former DWTS hoofer had her hair makeover—told People.

No word on how her BF Ryan Seacrest feels about the 'do, but we think it's pretty cute.

How about you? Do you prefer Jules with long hair, or is she pulling off the shoulder-length look, too? Weigh in below!
