Carrie Underwood: I want to dye my hair

Carrie Underwood would love to get rid of her signature blonde hair but says everyone around her is "scared" to do it.

The country music star is famed for her lusciously long and wavy tresses, but would love to mix up her look. Carrie has attempted to change her style in the past, but admits her beauty team are always reluctant to take the plunge.

"[I'd] love to switch things up a little bit, but everyone [else] is scared to do it. I wanted to dye my hair darker. I'm like, 'Let's change my hair colour.' We'll do something for like two hours, then I'll walk away, and I'm like, 'This looks the same as before,'" she laughed in an interview with Stylelist. "Maybe someday I'll do something a little more drastic. I don't think I'm meant for short hair though. I don't feel as pretty when I chop it off which I have done before."

Carrie does her own hair and make-up on tour. The 29-year-old beauty loves going wild with her dramatic stage look.

"Yeah, that's two people I don't have," she exclaimed.

"When you're on stage, it's a little bit different than real life. You can kind of pile it on - and you need to for things to show up. It's kind of whatever, you can play. You can do things you wouldn't really do. You can put glitter on your eyes. Big hair. The bigger, the better. It's fun.

"It's a nice relaxing time, a calm before the storm, if you will."

Carrie wasn't always an expert at creating a gorgeous beauty look. The stunning songstress says her "stiff" hair styling left a lot to be desired.

"When I was in college, I used a lot of product. My hair has a natural wave to it, but if you don't really know what to do with it, it's kind of hard," she admitted.

"I would just put stuff in my hair, and it was like, crunchy. So if I could not do something, I would go back and not do that."
