"To get Carrie Underwood's natural-looking curls, I start by curling sections of hair using a small-barrel curling iron," says Jessica Ruggles of Adorne Artistry in Houston. "Next, I gather the top half of the hair and, working from back to front, take sections and add volumizing powder to the roots. I then tease each section with a small-tooth comb to create the perfect-size 'pouf' near the crown, and secure it with bobby pins crossed into 'X' shapes. Finally, I use a finishing spray to make sure the style stays in place all night long."
