LeAnn Rimes’ hairstyle: better than before, but not what it used to be!

Judging from the 2012 ACM Awards show, LeAnn Rimes looks better than she has in quite some time. Perhaps that’s because she’s happy to be divorced from her first husband and now married to Eddie Cibrian. The happy couple were both cheating on spouses when their love affair blossomed.

We really don’t care about her twisted love life, but we’re glad her hair is improving. Her tousled topknot perfectly combines messy, cute and chic. Loose wisps and sleek crown contrast beautifully with twirled and rolled ends. We can’t say the same about LeAnn’s fashion choice for the ACMs. She appeared on some worst-dressed lists from Sunday even though she was wearing Stella McCartney! It doesn’t matter what we think–you be the judge.

An example of LeAnn’s not-so-pretty past is the 2010 CMT awards. We couldn’t believe her “wasted” appearance in both her hair and stick-thin figure (that has sparked never-ending rumors of anorexia). A closeup shot of Ms. Rimes Cibrian reveals a stringy mess of split ends and frizzy layers–no rhyme or reason to her ‘do.

Back in 2009 bellasugar.com complimented LeAnn for her Grammys’ hairstyle. We don’t think it’s that great, but if you disagree and want to get the look, go here.

Even if you disagree with everything we’ve said here, you have to admit there’s no comparison with her long-gone glamour styles like the pretty Shag below.

We’d love to hear what you think about any of our opinions expressed here (and in any realhairstyles post for that matter!)

Country Music hairstyles: Lady Antebellum, Steel Magnolia & the Band Perry

The complementary styles of hot Vocal Groups… 
Sometimes in duos and trios, someone gets lost while another steals the spotlight. That’s not the case with Lady Antebellum (right), the Band Perry (below) and Steel Magnolia. 

The individuals who make up each group seem born to be together. Like their vocals, the styles blend together beautifully. They are also winners in the real sense of the word. Lady Antebellum (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley & Dave Haywood) nabbed three ACM awards this spring. The Band Perry (Kimberley Perry with brothers Neil & Reid) was chosen best New Artist of the Year. Steel Magnolia (Meghan Linsey & beau Joshua Scott Jones) soared into the music scene soon after winning the second season of CMT‘s Can You Duet contest for music awards. They’ve received a slew of award nominations … but more impressive is their big fan base which has grown exponentially since 2009.  

The hairstyles of the females are unique and individual. The Lady of Lady Antebellum, Hillary shows off her new do … opposite of the old one. Straight hair with bangs have replaced the full curls without bangs she wore before. Kimberly Perry plays up her curls that are normally calm, cool and collected. Scrunching while blow-drying without using a diffuser helps her pump up and break up her curls. Meghan seems to be wearing an upsweep, but it’s really her short hair done up to look that way (admirers know that Miss Magnolia often wears this faux updo).
