Celebrity Hairstyles: Lauren Alaina’s & Meghan Linsey’s hair shines in SUNNY headbands

Until recently, we didn’t think that Meghan Linsey’s hair could get any better. That was before the ACM 2012 awards show, where Meghan wore a sparkling headband. We just had to find out where the accessory came from. Turns out it’s a SUNNYband, and that Meghan has been a longtime fan. In fact, the night of the ACMs, Meghan tweeted: “Thank u @sunnyband for the beautiful band! AND for helping me get ready!!!!! Love u girl.” The Steel Magnolia singer follows SUNNYband on Twitter, and often checks in to see what’s new.

The headbands and jewelry are handmade, making them totally unique. But more than that: they’re a chance for every girl and woman to bring out her individual personality or style! Some of the bands are even more unique with the look of a hat such as the one Meghan’s wearing at left.

Another country music singer has her own line. It’s the Signature Lauren Alaina Wildflower headband. Lauren is the runner-up of American Idol in Season 10,  and she’s touring with Jason Aldean. One of Ms. Alaina’s custom bands is an “ICED” look, completely covered in Swarovski crystals.

ACM hairstyles 2012: Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Hillary Scott, Kimberly Perry, Meghan Linsey and more!

Long hair never ends for the women of Country. That fact makes shorter hair stand out even more!

Top winners of the night wore the trademark look for female country music singers–long, longer and longer. Entertainer of the Year, Taylor Swift DID mix it up a little by going mostly straight with her mane and bangs. By adding volume and a little wave to the smooth style, Taylor created a one-of-a-kind Country Style. Meanwhile Best Album of the Year winner, Miranda Lambert chose the full upsweep that’s served her well through myriad awards nights. Ms. Lambert (Shelton) wears her hair back but leaves the front loose. Long side bangs and released ringlets compliment the softened updo. Later in the night, Miranda let her hair down and posed with another long-haired beauty, Laura Bell Bundy, who wore a curly pony with side bangs. Fan fave and American Idol Carrie Underwood looked like her normal self in gorgeous curls swept over a bare shoulder.

Only two hairstyles shown here are not long. The daring (and darling) stars are Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and Meghan Linsey of Steel Magnolia. Jennifer’s hair mid-length, in a loose pony, shined as usual. Meghan’s famous short cut took on yet another style: smoothed back behind a headband. Worn this way the crop looked like a bob. One blogger grouped Meghan with the worst-dressed celebs of the evening, describing her as a white snowbird in a fluffy dress. Can you believe that?! We’re never seen her looking anything other than pretty. Truly she doesn’t need trendy fashions to distinguish her from a bevy of beauties.

Getting back to the long-haired celebs, they included, Hillary Scott (left), Kimberly Perry (blonde below) and Sara Evans (brunette below). Hillary and Kimberly went curly and Sara wore her go-to straight style.

That just about sums up this post, but we’re planning to follow up with other notes from the ACM awards. (One such observation: the couple of celebs who struck the Angelina-like pose from the Academy Awards earlier this year.)

*More about the ACM winners: Taylor Swift walked away with Best Entertainer for the second year in a row. Miranda Lambert nabbed Top Female Vocalist and Top Album for Four the Record. Hillary Scott’s Lady Antebellum took Top Vocal Group. In a later post, we’ll cover the hairstyle of Kelly Clarkson who, with Jason Aldean, rated Single Record and Vocal Event.

CMT Country Music hairstyles: Meghan Linsey, Jennifer Nettles, Sheryl Crow, Sara Evans, Hillary Scott & Laura Alaina


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.

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).

Country Music fashion: Meghan Linsey’s hairstyles

 

Meghan Linsey is one of your 10 favorite stars on realhairstyles.net. We suspect that there’s more reasons for her popularity than her ‘dos. There’s her boyfriend Joshua Scott Jones and their vocal duo Steel Magnolia. Their sudden success has earned them a nomination for Best New Duo/Group of the Year by the Academy of Country Music (ACM). Though they were edged out by Band Perry, these Steely singers will perform along with other hot stars at the first ever Fan Jam held in conjunction with the ACM  2011 awards show (this Sunday).

These two dos are very similar but not quite alike. The one on the right gives you an idea how the haircut looks from the side. For high glamour, all of her hair is volumized and then rolled off the face. This twist gives her very short hair the look of an upsweep. The same kind of thinking goes into the solo shot. Little things make the difference: bangs are lifted to one side instead of back and ends are swept up instead of down. A red-hot hair ornament adds color to her form-fitting black gown.

Here’s two other dos that resemble each other, and both are perfect for awards shows or the gala du jour. Personally we think the hair at left is one of the prettiest we’ve seen on Meg or any star for that matter! It’s shorter with more layers and pure white. Finger-brushing while blow-drying creates a fluffy, feathery crop. On the right, Meg’s hair is longer, less layered, and salty and pepper blond. Styling time is pretty similar except for the polished finish created with a round brush and blow-drier while hair’s still slightly damp. If your hair falls flat too soon after styling, use big hot rollers or a curling iron.

Yet another reason for Steel Magnolia’s appeal is its down-to-earth charm. Their friendly personalities shine through when posing with fellow country star Kellie Pickler. 

Getting back to the mane thing, you’ve gotta love Meghan’s casually chic, sideswept ponytail and long bangs. Stay tuned for more on Meghan!
