Weekend-Ready Hair: Carrie Underwood's High Drama Side Sweep

(Michael Loccisano/Getty Images North America) Carrie Underwood and her perfectly toned legs might have stolen the show last night at the 2013 CMA Awards, but her golden mane wasn't too shabby either. Want to master her va-va-voom side sweep? Pureology gave us the low down on how to recreate Carrie's killer curls at home!

Step 1
Mist on a hair treatment spray, like Pureology's Colour Fanatic, onto damp hair. Not only will this help protect hair from heat, but it will offer high shine as well.

Step 2
Use a spray hair mousse on the base of the hair. Pureology suggests a product like their Root Lift, which will build the volume needed to create Carrie's look. Next, apply a volumizing mousse, like
Pureology's Silk Bodifier, for volume as well as softness.

Step 3
Blow dry hair with a medium round brush to achieve Carrie's bouncy curls.

Step 4
Section off hair, and place it in a medium barrel curl. Clip it in place and allow hair to cool for 10 minutes.

Step 5
Remove curls, and let them drop. Brush out curls with a soft bristle brush. This will make the curls smooths and soft. Finally, brush the curls to one side for a voluminous side sweep. Finish off with a strong hairspray, like Pureology's zero-dulling spray, Strengthening Control.
