At first glance, the hairstyles at the CMT awards last night were disappointing…but there were some highlights!
Among the best tressed are Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles (above) and Steel Magnolia‘s Meghan Linsey (below left). Judging from our stats, you like their looks a lot. Both dos are on the shorter side, distinguishing them from other country music stars. Other unique touches are Jen’s layers and Meghan’s side ponytail.
Sheryl Crow and Sara Evans (above right) deserve honorable mentions. They don’t change their hair often, and they don’t have to because their trademark looks work perfectly. Of the two, Ms. Crow goes longer with bronde highlights and loose curls. Sara’s straight locks are slightly angled around the face and styled to be super sleek and shiny.
Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott (above) did something different with her hair, and the results were so-so. The crown wasn’t full as it usually is and the curls were looser than normal. Lady A. frequently dons a half-upsweep so that touch doesn’t come as a surprise.
Ending with the worst, we give Laura Alaina a big thumbs-down (she doesn’t look like an American Idol runner-up!). Her high-contrast haircolor could be labeled as a very bad ombré, but it’s really like a past trend that was never very good–a very different color like black under a light shade such as platinum blond.

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).
