Carrie Underwood Cuts Off Her Long Hair For The Sake Of Her 1-Year-Old Son

Carrie Underwood, country singer and American Idol winner, is fairly new to the parenting game. Carrie became a mother just over a year ago, and now she has celebrated one of the most exciting milestones for any new parent: her first child’s first steps. Isaiah, Carrie Underwood’s son, took his first few steps not long ago.

Carrie Underwood has established herself as a loving and proud mother through Instagram posts with her husband, Mike Fisher. According to Taste of Country, Carrie Underwood recently cut her hair as a way to make it easier for her to be a parent to her son.

Carrie Underwood spoke about her hairstyle choice.

“Now that my hair is shorter, it’s easier to fix, which was the whole point. Cutting my hair was a ‘mom’ move. I wash my hair every day and I know that’s not great for it, but I work out and I sweat a lot so I need to, and I’m on stage and I sweat even more. I could spend half an hour to blow it dry and have it be super long, or I could spend that time playing with my son, and I’d much rather do the latter.”

She went on to speak about how her hair styling routine has changed since she became a parent and especially since making the decision to cut off her long locks.

Noting that her daily routine is a lot simpler now, she said, “I blow out my hair with a round brush and I’m good.”

Carrie Underwood says that since becoming a parent, she finds herself wondering whether she remembered to use moisturizer each day and that she has stopped using expensive cosmetics.

“To be honest, whatever I can grab at a Walgreens is enough for me. I love drugstore makeup. I honestly don’t think there’s anything in my bag that’s expensive.”

Carrie still finds a lot of time to be with her son despite being on tour right now for her “Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round,” which runs from January all the way to May. Even at the Grammys, she still managed to keep baby Isaiah as her number one priority.

According to E! Online, she told Ryan Seacrest that her proudest moment in life was being a mom.

“My little guy is the little sunshine in my world, every single day. He’s back at the hotel right now and he’s just smiley and sweet and happy and just… he’s the best.”

Fans who won’t have the opportunity to catch her on tour can tune into the American Idol series finale. According to Billboard, the country star and American Idol alum will be back to perform at the finals. Carrie Underwood, who won the competition in 2005, will join Kelly Clarkson, who won it in 2002. The pair will perform in the monumental episode, as this is the ultimate sendoff for one of the greatest reality shows to hit TV. The finale will be in two parts on April 6 and April 7, and Clarkson and Underwood are going to be onstage on April 7.

Prior to the finale, the show will take a stroll down memory lane on April 5 in a 90-minute retrospective called American Idol: American Dream. It will feature Ryan Seacrest and some current and former judges, including the original trio from the very first season consisting of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.
