Winning Hair Styles at the CMAs

MODERN SALON TV's most recent episode covered hair-style trends at the Country Music Awards. The CMAs showcased many up-and-coming looks—here’s what was on our radar in celeb style this season!

Co-host Carrie Underwood stole the show with two hot trends. First, her spot-on buttery blonde. Aura Friedman, Wella Professionals Celebrity Colorist says she’s seeing a shift from cool, platinum blondes to golden and rosy tones—so Carrie’s warm color hits the mark.

Next, Carrie’s pinned-back curly style was a mini-trend echoed by Entertainer of the Year winner Taylor Swift. Taylor’s standard texture got a new twist with this pinned-back look that was especially versatile for her multiple hair and dress changes throughout the show.

In the audience, Nicole Kidman showed off a strawberry blonde shade, which bears a strong resemblance to the peach and rose gold trend that’s on the rise. The key to the on-trend color is the natural dimension, which “makes these shades radiate with an inner glow,” Aura says.
