Carrie Underwood never fails to give us major hair moments with true Southern style: big buttery blonde curls, sky-high volume, and a spritz or twenty of hairspray. The country star and Oklahoma native first appeared on our radar after winning the fourth season of American Idol in 2005 with her naturally scrunched waves and powerhouse voice. Since her entrance into the country music world, the singer-songwriter has kept us hooked on her stunning hair twists and turns, all while staying true to her blonde bombshell spirit. She loves her signature long and layered big-barrel curls, but treats us to ultra-flattering wavy lobs when we least expect it. She’ll make the chop for side-swept bangs and blunt bangs alike, teetering between them as she fancies. She keeps her strands bright and buttery, but isn't afraid to throw in some warmer lowlights or venture into platinum territory every so often. She’s a hair chameleon that we get serious salon inspiration from, whether looking for layers, length, or bangs. Check out some of our favorite hair moments from the reigning queen of country.
