We're obsessed!

We have a total crush on Carrie Underwood's chic 'do. Find out why in this week's installment of Celeb Hairstyle of the Week!

We're obsessed!

Carrie Underwood is skilled at many things — singing, acting and looking majorly stylish at every event she attends are three that come to mind. Here, the country crooner looked perfect in a messy side bun and larger-than-life lashes. I asked Oribe Creative Director Ronnie Stam to show us how to look just as pretty as Carrie. Have fun!

"I like this look a lot because it’s not overly styled. It’s done and not done at the same time. It looks like she did it herself and did an amazing job. There’s a beautiful nonchalance about it," Ronnie says.

  1. Spray Foundation Mist throughout damp hair to nourish and detangle. Brush through.
  2. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to hair in small sections from roots to ends to create body. Blow dry to maximum volume with a medium-size round brush. For added lift, brush hair straight up from the roots.
  3. Curl random sections of hair with a medium-barrel curling iron, rolling sections back off the face. Use Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray before applying heat to protect hair and add soft hold.
  4. Gather hair loosely to the side and secure with a small rubber band, leaving some pieces loose around the face. Pull the ponytail through the elastic a few times, leaving a loop on your final pass through. Pull the hair apart a bit for a messy finish.
  5. Detail the loose pieces with Fiber Groom for shine and separation.
