Carrie Underwood is known for wearing her hair in soft, feminine curls that never look overly "done"—which I think is ideal for brides who are searching for a pretty but natural-looking hairstyle. I especially love how Carrie recently wore her hair at the Academy of Country Music Awards. You can't quite tell from the front view, but she took small ropes of hair on each side of her head, then twisted and pinned them back into a half-up style. (See the back view here.) So sweet! A quick note: If you want to wear your hair like Carrie's, but have thin strands, ask your hairstylist about extensions, which will add extra fullness and volume to your look.
