Cassadee Pope showed off what we want to call a skunk dye hairstyle and a braid in her hair at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on 7 April 2013.

CMAs highlights: stars from Shania Twain to Cassadee Pope show brown hair with ombre dye at 2013 Country Music Awards

Monday April 08, 2013 - 11h14

Seems like the stereotype of American country music is that its mavens are blonde with larger than life curly manes (enter Hayden Panettiere in the series "Nashville".) But at the 2013 Country Music Awards held in Vegas on 7 April, the brown-haired brunettes were on show. We saw loads of glamorous stars-- from Jana Kramer to Shania Twain to Cassadee Pope showing off their brown locks jazzed with highlights or an ombre dye!

Let's take a look at our four favourites.

Jana Kramer: The actress and singer known for her role in One Tree Hill has jazzed up her traditional brunette look with some poppy, spring-friendly ombre tints at the end of her locks, a delicate dye job nothing like the intense look adopted by Rumer Willis. The bright ends of her curls helped her ponytail really show off light and movement as she posed on the red carpet. The question is, after seeing this style on this particular singer, "Why Ya Wanna" do any other style?

Cassadee Pope: The "Hey Monday" singer and winner of last season's The Voice makes her brown locks stand out with a very unique dye job. It's inspiration for those of you who want to be different from the flock of ombre adherants. Still, we can't 100% recommend this style: we are "Torn" over her chunky style, especially in this braid. Is it too skunk-like?

Hillary Scott: This lady, of Lady Antebellum, took a different take than Cassadee on highlights. Instead of brightening her brunette locks with blonde highlights, she chose auburn. The result is much more subtle.

Shania Twain: The singer is a classic and a pro... and you can tell from her hair. Shania has gorgeous, tumbling curls, which she highlights in a very natural, almost imperceptable way. For those of you who aren't into statement, try this natural and classy look.

Four brunette crooners, and four ways to brighten brown hair. Which is your favourite?
