Carrie Underwood Reveals Why She Went With ‘Mom Hair’

Carrie Underwood has sported quite a few ‘dos over the years, but most recently she’s gone with a shorter, simpler look. In a new interview with Elle, she admits it’s a trade-off she made for her son, Isaiah.

“Now that my hair is shorter, it’s easier to fix, which was the whole point,” the country superstar explains. “Cutting my hair was a ‘mom’ move. I wash my hair every day and I know that’s not great for it, but I work out and I sweat a lot so I need to, and I’m on stage and I sweat even more. I could spend half an hour to blow it dry and have it be super long, or I could spend that time playing with my son, and I’d much rather do the latter. ”

In fact, Underwood has streamlined her entire beauty regimen since having her son.

“Things have just definitely gotten simpler,” she says. “I blow out my hair with a round brush and I’m good. It’s not complicated at all and I’m out the door still feeling good, but that’s the the simplest level [of upkeep] I do. Oh lordy, being a mom, half the time I’m like, ‘Did I put moisturizer on? Did I do that today?’ To be honest, whatever I can grab at a Walgreens is enough for me. I love drugstore makeup. I honestly don’t think there’s anything in my bag that’s expensive.”

Underwood is going to have to find all the free time she possibly can for her son while she’s on the road on her Storyteller Tour — Stories in the Round road trek, which kicked off in January and runs all the way through the end of May.
