Sometimes we forget that former Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough is only 24 years old, but then she posts an adorable throwback that reminds us that she was still a youngin’ when Avril Lavigne first hit the scene. Confused? Well, Jules posted a pic with a ridiculously long caption yesterday in which she was singing “Complicated” while brother Derek Hough played guitar behind her, half-shirtless. Sounds about right.


With the below pic, she wrote:

“#tbt wow where do I begin! 1. Either this was during a Latin/ballroom competition and I was all fake tanned up and left my face out of it or This is a real tan and being 12 yrs old you buy the wrong foundation color at the grocery store. 2. I'm very proud of my hair! That is natural- color and length... Maybe I should shave my head now so it can grow out to be that color again. 3. That's my brother @derekhough playing guitar in the background with his shirt open (some things never change) and I can't believe I remember this... I was singing Avril Lavigne "Complicated". That was for sure my jam!”

We did the math, and Avril’s song came out in 2002, when Julianne (born in 1988) would have been 14. However, she could have started buying the wrong foundation and continued using it for two years, right? Either way, we think she looks great both then and now. Her natural color isn’t that much different than what she has now, but it was definitely a lot longer when she was a teen!

What do you think of Julianne’s old look? Sound off below!
