Carrie Underwood Goes Short

New Selfie Reveals Sassy New Hair Style

A lot of new moms get haircuts during their baby’s first year, when they realize that shorter hair is easier hair.

But Carrie Underwood is not like other moms.

So even though she chopped off about what looks like 12 inches of her blond hair, sometime before Tuesday night’s (Dec. 8) show at the Grand Ole Opry, Underwood still looks like a superstar. Or at least, the coolest mom to rock a wispy shoulder-length bob with a deep side part.

She posted the photo on Instagram, not even mentioning the haircut itself.

“Backstage @opryselfie! I love being at the Ryman! There’s just something so special about this place … ,” Underwood wrote.

But then her stylist, makeup artist and friend Melissa Schleicher posted the photo, as well, saying, “Gave @carrieunderwood fresh new cut!!”
