Transcript:Get This Look: Carrie Underwood Lifted Hair

Hi I am Kelly Britton, professional stylist here today with About.com to show you how to get the inspired look of Carrie Underwood’s lifted hair look.

Supplies for Carrie Underwood Lifted Hair

The things you will need are:
  • 1/2 inch barrel curling iron
  • 1 can of working spray
  • 1 can of hairspray
  • bobbie pins
  • A rat tail comb

Instructions for Creating a Carrie Underwood Lifted Hair Look

First you will need to spray the working spray all over the hair. This will help you to help the hair to get tight curly, yet still, pliable, it is not like using hairspray, it will not give you a strong hold. Section hair off from 1/2 inch to 1 inch partings, starting with the neckline.

Take the rat tail comb and create a straight across parting, clipping all the excess hair away. Take the curling iron and spiral curl each 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch partings, atarting at the scalp and moving outwards, not to burn the ends of the hair.

Let the hair, those ends hang out, lightly pulling through the curling iron creating the Carrie Underwood’s fishtail look. It will also help protect the ends of you hair that is most vulnerable to heat damage. Continue with the same spiral curl motion throughout the whole head.

When you get to the top of the head or crown part of the head, pull the hair up and away from the headCurl about half way down.. Hold it there till the hair really dries and a little cooled down and help you to secure that curl and give the volume that Carrie Underwood has.

When you get to the bangs you will use the curling under motion, do not use the spiral curl, cause her (Carrie Underwood) bangs come around her face and swoop down. Curl the whole hair section and curl from the mid shaft and pulling out so the hair is one big bang with a small curl at the end.Now spray all over, before you start pinning and back combing with rat tail comb.. You want to lightly comb the hair backward, taking half and pulling the rest of the hair down.

Additional Instructions for Creating a Carrie Underwood Lifted Hair Look

Once you first half pulled back, then secure with a bobbie pin, do the same to the other side of the head. Comb all the hair back, pushing forward with your fingers securing a nice bump. Once hair is pinned up, you want to comb out the curls around the face with the end of rat tail comb using the teeth to blend the hair and make a full look, Finish with hairspray all over, put your hand under the bang area and spray on top. Now this is a beautifully lifted Carrie Underwood style.
