Did Carrie Underwood Chop Off Her Hair?

What would Carrie Underwood look like if she cropped her long blonde into a chin-length bob? Well, now we know.

The country singer recently wore her mane in a style that left us wondering: Did she or didn’t she lob her locks? She attended an industry event for her hit “Good Girl” in Nashville Tuesday rocking what is either a pinned-back hairstyle or a brand new (and rather drastic) haircut.

We’re leaning toward the former after some photo investigation. But the faux bob (if that’s what it is) has left us wondering if Underwood is perhaps test-driving a new look.

Back in 2009, she sported shoulder-length hair, which is the shortest we’ve ever seen her go, and maybe she’s itching to shake things up again. (After all, it is apparently the month of bold Hollywood hair decisions.)

We think Underwood looks gorgeous with long and short tresses, but we want to know what you say. Tell us: Which hair length suits Underwood best: super-long or chin-length? Vote below!

I think she is clearly wearing a faux bob, because in the photo you can see her hair wrapped up in the back…

Kitchy on

It’s pretty obviously pulled up in the back. It’s not even a “faux” bob, it’s a style that leaves the sides free and the back pulled up. This is a ridiculous story.

Or she took out extensions

Ann on

She is pretty either way……

Carrie is stunningly pretty either way, but I prefer long hair. But it doesn’t matter; she is still gorgeous!

Colleen on

Next breaking story: Carrie Underwood brushes her teeth! News at 11.

OldNews on

Who cares? Carrie has had short hair before, google it.

Tiff on

Her hair in the front was probably too short to put in a low bun. I assume its a slow day at people due to people thinking this was a great story.

Simon on

I like both! but with long hair looks more young. She is beautiful!!!

Linda on

Bleached hair, bleached teeth, who cares!

Bethany Grannan on

She and Emily Maynard could be sisters! Gorgeous!

mommy on

She looks a little like Faith Hill in that photo.

holly on

I hope she loses the extensions one day, and lightens up on the make up a little, she wears so much eye make up.

Janie on

Colleen – No, remember it was Jessica Simpson that said she doesn’t brush her teeth.

Teri on

Slow news day? LOL

coolfkndude on

carrie looks good either way!. I just hope she keeps her blonde hair. although, pink streaks would really rock her look! bottom line she can do whatever she wants, as she keeps singing! I think she has one of the best voices out there!!!

Meg on

She probably just took her extensions out.

Casey on

It seems pretty obvious that her hair is simply pulled back. There are just some pieces framing her face, but it is easy to see that it doesn’t go all the way around.

She’s beautiful regardless of her hair length, though!

Lily on

it is probably just pulled up in a twist

someone on

it looks great either way. she is a gorgeous woman!

Donna on

Innocent people are dying in Syria and we are wondering if Carrie Underwood has cut her hair? Wow. Seriously. What is wrong with our country.

Paige on

That’s funny, I thought she looked a little like Faith Hill in this picture too…although I’ve never seen the resemblence before.

Ava on

She looks okay either way.


What could she be thinking?? you mean she didn’t get permission first??? after all it is HER hair! ‘news’ must be slow today…

Tara on

Its an updo- she already said she wasnt cutting her hair short any time soon- she likes it long, as does her husband.

Kaity on

I don’t think Carrie Underwood could ever look bad! She is absolutely beautiful.

Crisco and his friends on

Kara Underwoods is always hot. Her fox bobby may not be good for sum. But others equals….

Sasha Fierce on

At least we know one thing, she looks better than Miley Cyrus. Change is good for her, but Miley’s just sucks.

huh on

so this is a story about how someone pulled thier hair back???

Anna on

She’s a pretty woman regardless of the length of her hair.

dee on

Beautiful either way.

Well if this is a photo of the “look” anyone is confused about, it’s clearly just pinned up. Probably due to the heat. Can’t believe I wasted my time reading and commenting on this……..
