See How Country Stars Maddie & Tae Got Glam for the ACM Awards

Apr/05/2016 at 03:50 PM ET

The Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet was decked with a lots of color and lots of cleavage. Stars also showed up with very non-country like hair (a.k.a. straight strands and edgy updos). And singing duo Maddie & Tae went for hair and makeup looks that were (wait for it…) a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll — and their makeup artist spilled all the exclusive behind-the-scenes scoop.

Every ACM Outfit Change That Was Either a Little Bit Country or a Little Bit Rock 'n Roll

Apr/04/2016 at 11:14 AM ET

On Sunday night, country music honored its best and brightest at the Academy of Country Music Awards. And when a bunch of would-be cowboy and girl crooners get together, you better believe there’s a whole lot of glitz, glamour and (in some cases) sky-high bouffants hairsprayed to within a inch of their lives. After all, as they say, the higher the hair, the closer to God.

ACM Awards 2015: Miranda Lambert Was the Night's Big Style Winner Too, with Four (!) Outfit Changes

Apr/20/2015 at 09:04 AM ET

There must be something about country awards shows that just makes petite blonde vocal powerhouses want to change their outfits. Carrie Underwood is notorious for attempting 10+ wardrobe changes in a night at the CMAs — though at the last one, Miranda Lambert gave Underwood a run for her money. And at last night’s ACM Awards, Lambert kept the trend going, wearing four glam looks in one night.

What Did Country Stars Wear to the 1990 ACM Awards?

Apr/16/2015 at 10:30 AM ET

This Sunday marks the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards, with performances slated from Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton and more. Before the ceremony, top country stars will walk the red carpet, wearing glam dresses and dapper suits with just a touch of country flair — whether cowboy boots or hats, or oversize, engraved belt buckles.

Quite tragically, the country-glam fashions of today aren’t nearly as dramatic as they used to be. For example: You just don’t see shoulder pads anymore. Here are some looks from the 1990 ACMs that we desperately hope make a comeback. Read More

By now you’ve already seen all the gorgeous gowns from Sunday’s ACM Awards, so it’s time to talk about the most buzzworthy beauty moments. Let’s start with Carrie Underwood‘s amazing side-swept waves, because, well, they’re amazing.

We were so enamored of Underwood’s old Hollywood-inspired tresses, we had to get some more insight straight from her makeup artist and hair stylist of nine years, Melissa Schleicher. You may not have noticed, but the first step to her look was a subtle color change.

“Her hair is a bit darker now,” Schleicher explains. “She’s naturally blonde in the roots, and we hadn’t highlighted her hair in seven months — we just let it go. And then I took her to the salon, darkened her hair a shade and lightened the ends quite a bit for an ombré look.” Read More
