Carrie Underwood is a well-rounded inspiration. The amazing singer, songwriter and actress is also a hair muse for many of us. Her long layered hair is always styled to perfect, shiny and flattering for her face shape and natural hair type. She has rocked long bobs and sophisticated updo’s. It’s hard to narrow down her best hairstyles but we attempted the challenge. Here are our favorite Carrie Underwood haircuts.
Vintage Side-Swept Down Do
Carrie Underwood arrived to the 2013 CMA awards in style. Her Ralph and Russo couture dress was perfectly paired with this timeless vintage hairstyle. The dramatic and voluminous side-swept down do was curled to perfection.
Curly Faux Bob Updo
The 2014 Peter Some fashion show had plenty of fashion and Carrie Underwood came dressed to impress. She styled her longer locks in a curly updo that created the illusion of a long bob with the help of a lot of bobby pins.
Half-Up Hairstyle with Curls
Carrie Underwood arrived the Z100 Elvis Duran morning radio show with a casual yet impressive half-up half-down hairstyle. She pulled her bangs back and wore her long tresses in big flowy curls.
Low Messy Bun
Carrie Underwood is the most successful celeb to come from American Idol and with a voice like hers – we’re not surprised. She returned to the show for some mentoring and she showed off a simple, low and messy bun that was both romantic and confident. We think this hairstyle is perfect for every occasion.
Carrie Underwood’s Soft Curls with Center Part
It’s amazing what a different part can do you to your look. Carrie Underwood is often wearing a deep side-part hairstyle but to these CMA awards she opted for a center part with soft curls. The center part creates a more severe and bold look but the big romantic curls softened up the look. Talk about the best of both worlds!
Messy Ponytail with Bouffant
One thing we love about Carrie Underwood is the versatility in her hairstyles. A lot of her looks are actually easy to duplicate at home with some hairspray and elastics. One of those looks is this messy ponytail with a bouffant at the crown. It’s cool and sophisticated. Perfect for any summertime occasion.
CMA Music Festival Boho Headband and Loose Curls
At the 2013 CMA Music Festival, Carrie Underwood came to impress. She didn’t just steal the show with her performance but with her boho-chic look. The big curls left down and flowing with the brown leather headband styled in a ‘halo’ fashion was the perfect hairstyle for her blue jeans and ripped-fringe shirt.
Sky High Bangs with Low Bun
At the 2014 Billboard Music Awards Carrie Underwood showed us that she truly is a style icon and she knows how to match her tresses to her dresses. She styled the length of her hair in a sleek bun and the front of her hair was teased a mile high and swept to the side for an absolutely stunning look.
Carrie Underwood Pink Streaks
Who doesn’t want to add some color to their life every once in awhile? Carrie Underwood wasn’t afraid to rock some pink streaks in her hair at one of her concerts and it went perfect with her soft blonde tresses. Carrie Underwood’s pink streaks were probably just temporary extensions so if you’re ever thinking about recreating the look, just pick up some clip-in extensions for a temporary but awesome hairstyle.
