Carrie Underwood

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner Carrie Underwood is back in action with a highly anticipated album, Cry Pretty, due to be released in September. The lead single of the same name has already garnered a lot of attention and praise from critics and fans alike. The country music sensation is one of our all-time favorite cover girls, her hairstyles are always flawless and her makeup never misses a beat. Can Carrie do no wrong with her glam style? We don’t think so!


“This album is emotional, it’s soulful, it’s real and we also have some fun on there, too.”

Celebrity Style
Need some mane inspiration for your next summer look? Sophisticate’s has got you covered with these stunning hairstyles from your favorite celebs in the “Celebrity Style” special section. From The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco to Kylie Jenner, we have your favorite celebs and their killer looks to choose from in this issue!


Jasmine Sanders
Top model Jasmine Sanders looks gorgeous with her hair in a platinum and baby pink streaked ‘do. The social media star has her wavy mane parted down the middle and brushed behind her ear. Jasmine continues to prove that she’s blonde #hairgoals.


Bebe Rexha
“Meant To Be” singer Bebe Rexha looks amazing with her hair in a chin-length platinum bob. The starlet’s blonde strands are parted on the side, with one side tucked behind one ear and the other falling in her face. No one rocks a lob cut quite like Bebe.


Halsey is a mane chameleon. She is definitely one of our favorite celebs to look to for mane inspiration. The “Bad At Love” songstress looks gorgeous with her vanilla blonde strands brushed back and styled in soft curls. Short or long, Halsey slays any hairstyle she wears.

Hot Hair

Hair pros Sharon Blain and Peter Gray created “Aligríe”, a fashion-forward, ‘80s-inspired collection illustrating stunning volume and tantalizing texture. Check it out in the “Couture Chic” spread in the September 2018 collection. There’s nothing like vivid color, bold prints and funky silhouettes to really vamp up your style.



She’s Bad
This game-changing rock & roll-inspired curly coif is amazing! Ebony strands are styled into tight spirals and shaped into a asymmetrical, chin-length bob. Proving that symmetry isn’t everything when it comes to your hair.


Like, Too Cool
There’s nothing like face-framing, glamourous spirals. This dark chocolate mane is curled into spirals all around the head. Hair is parted down the middle to allow curls to frame the face for a glam finish.


Bodacious Bod
There is no such thing as too much height when it comes to your hair. Chestnut tresses are sectioned into two parts. Hair at the top is curled and teased up for mesmerizing volume. The sides are smooth back into a chignon. A loose tendril on the side of the face completes this edgy look.

Star Hairstyles


Gigi Hadid
Supermodel Gigi Hadid looks captivating with this short, golden blonde wig. The social media star shows us how to switch it up, with her pixie cut hairdo with forehead-grazing fringe. There’s nothing like a temporary new ‘do to revive your style.


Jennifer Lopez
So You Think You Can Dance’s Jennifer Lopez is always rocking a flawless sleek ponytail. Her ombre chestnut and golden blonde strands and slicked back into silky ponytail with the tail in falling gracefully over her shoulder. Stunning!


Maren Morris
Singer Maren Morris is branching out from her short and chic look, to play with long, voluminous tresses. The country singer looks chic with her ombre espresso and golden blonde mane parted down the middle and curled into luscious spirals.



Kelsea Ballerini
Country starlet Kelsea Ballerini looks summer chic with her long, blonde waves. The “Legends” songstress has her antique-gold locks in tousled over one shoulder in casual beach waves. We love Kelsea’s understated approach to glam!
