Cover Girl


Carrie Underwood

Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide is celebrating its 39th anniversary, so naturally we had to put one of our favorites on the cover, Carrie Underwood. The Grammy award-winning artist is the epitome of cool country glamour. With her signature blonde mane styles in sensual waves or sleek spirals, Carrie knows how to impress. Take a look a more of the “Remind Me” singers best mane looks and makeup moments in this issue, most of which were created by Carrie’s mane person, Melissa Schleicher (pictured above with Carrie).

“So 12 years ago on June 10th, I worked with this sweet, shy girl on her first debut at The Opry, and I really didn’t know much about her except my daughter Hunter loved her on American Idol, and said, ‘Mom, you have to do her and get me an autograph.’ Little did I know, 12 years later, I’m still doing her hair and make up and she is one of my dearest friends. Thank you Carrie for taking me all over the world with you and trusting me with your Glam.” —Melissa Schleicher, owner of Parlour 3 salon, Nashville, TN
