Carrie Underwood has laughed about the horrible results of perming her hair when she was 13 years old.

The 32-year-old country singer has been named one of People magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful women.

But Carrie claims she didn’t always win points for her style choices, especially when she was a teenager.

"When I was 13, I got a perm, and it was a big mistake – shocker!" she told People. "It wasn't my first perm, but it most definitely was my last. It took my hair a while to recover, but I learned my lesson – no more perms!"

Carrie has recently spoken about her favourite approach to dolling herself up.

And it doesn’t involve hairdressers or professional makeup artists most of the time.

“I do my own hair and makeup when I’m touring, and that’s something I always loved,” she told InStyle magazine previous. “It’s quiet on my bus, and being able to put on my makeup and do my hair is almost therapeutic. I know that sounds kind of weird, but it really is! I love makeup, and I like the time I get to spend doing it, so it’s nice to get that time for myself to play with new things.”

Carrie likes to incorporate natural items into her beauty regimen.

Coconut oil is a staple for her, as the songstress is convinced using the product makes her glow.

“It’s really hydrating on my skin, and I drink a ton of water to help with that as well,” she told InStyle. “I feel like those help the base. If you take good care of your body and good care of your skin, your makeup is going to look that much better.”
