Carrie Underwood Inspired Faux Hawk Updo Tutorial

Happy Friday Everyone!

Let me just start out saying that I love Carrie Underwood! I have loved her from the beginning! I remember watching American Idol with my Mom and voting for her from my house phone (seems like a million years ago)! Her style has been flawless from day one and just gets better year after year. My husband and I were at our friends house for New Years Eve and when I saw her performance I was so INSPIRED by her hair! It is totally different from anything we have seen before from her and she ROCKED it. I immediately told my friend to sit down and let me play I had to try it for myself….I seriously have the best friends! 🙂

I am so excited to share this tutorial with you! This is my spin on this glam faux hawk that can be worn for many occasions! It is more simple than you think to achieve and takes hardly any time! My model is the beautiful Chesni Ballinger who is a makeup artist here in Knoxville and is super talented and just as pretty on the inside as she is the out! <3 Follow her Instagram page @makeupbychesni for pictures of her work!
