Carrie Underwood Cuts Bangs: What Do You Think?

She’s stuck to a fairly signature, side-swept style for years, but Carrie Underwood really let her hair down over the weekend, debuting big bangs at the AARP Drive to End Hunger Benefit Concert in L.A.

Stepping on stage in a glimmering long-sleeved mini dress by Zuhair Murad, the country star paid tribute to birthday boy Tony Bennett and helped to promote his new album, Duets II (she joins him for a take on “It Had to Be You” on the record). Stevie Wonder performed during the show, held at the Staples Center, too.

Underwood is the second big star to cut bangs this season; last week, Bridesmaids actress Rose Byrne added them to her brunette do, too. Is this a fall hair trend in the making?

Horrible! Those bangs seem to age her 5-10 years. Maybe that’s what she’s going for, but I prefer her previous style.

What ever Carrie wants to do is fine with me. I love her voice and is not bad to look at either. Her only problem is she is locked and linked into a losing team. CW music is dead and buried, sounds like a bunch of drunkards scamming on your little girls anymore.

It helps if you actually print a decent picture of her. The picture on the other article on her is much better than this one.

OMG she looks just like Barbara Mandrell now!

Yep on

Carrie Underwood looks good no matter what. She’d probably look beautiful with her hair shaved. :)

I liked the old style better…..bangs do not do much for her! Sorry…I still think she is great!

Trudie on

Whoa, she looks over 40 now. Too bad, bangs usually make people look younger!

YUCK….and she’s so pretty…..they do seem to age her….or maybe it’s a horrible picture….and I really like her….maybe a different picture will give a different angle…I dunno, but so far….YUCK….!

OutsideView on

And what’s the deal with her legs….take a close look, I’m hoping it’s just the quality of the picture bc she’s such a beautiful young woman and tons of talent…..

Tara on

oh my! she looks like such a drag queen in this picture. that dress in not flattering at all!

Addy on

It doesn’t matter what she does with her hair, she’s always classically beautiful :)

The bangs are like her music – boring and bad.

Lili on

NOPE not a good look for her.

Dianne on

Love her bangs – she couldn’t look bad no matter what she did with her hair – what a beauty!

JR Jake, what a condescending, rude statement. CW music IS NOT dead and buried. It is alive and kicking. Don’t believe me, just wait for Carrie and Brad Paisley to host the 2011 CMA Awards. They are fantastic together. At least when you listen to CW music you can understand the words to the song.

That is just a bad picture of her…you people are being really mean. She actually looks good if you would see a different picture. They just used a bad picture on purpose.
