Well, we'll be damned.
An insider told Life & Style:

Her hairstylist Danilo gave a pretty thorough explanation of how he created the intricate style.
Apparently it was quite the undertaking and three separate attempts were made to get it right.
"Gwen was like, 'I want to do a cornrow look.' We already knew we wanted to do this look that we had developed so we turned it into cornrows."
The striking creation includes five Dutch braids, with one serving as a faux hawk and top knot at the top of her head, two joining from the sides toward the back, and two additional ones coming down over her ears.
Her hairstylist further explained:
"When I introduced this concept [of the braids placed in front of the ears] to Gwen, she really liked it, and we've played with it in several ways, and it's interestingly flattering. Bringing that ponytail-pigtail-braid situation to the front of the ear, it almost becomes ornamentation."
He was also quick to add that Gwen totally owns the look:
"Gwen wears [the hairstyle], it doesn't wear her. It's just different. There are no boundaries about it, there's no rules, and there definitely aren't any with Gwen. It's a matter of how to make it really cool, and I think it's chic — she's always going to have an elegance to her."
As for Blake Shelton, he apparently really digs his lady love's many mane experiments, with one in particular being his favorite:
"He likes her black-tipped bob. I think as any couple, they're supportive of who each other are. They get together and strengthen one another with complements."
Awwwww! Sounds like a keeper!

1. October 30, 2015 — Rumors began swirling in September that Gwennie Gwen and Blake were more than just "good friends" and colleagues on The Voice. A day before Halloween the two were even spotted holding hands at a party. And just what costume did Gwen wear on that fateful night?
DUN DUN DUN!
She was a cowgirl!!!
This trio is bringing the glamour!
Danielle Bradbery, RaeLynn, Cassadee Pope each sizzled as they arrived on the red carpet at the CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday!
But these previous The Voice contestants couldn't have looked more different!
Danielle chose to step onto the step and repeat wearing a black OGLIA-LORO Couture gown with a sheer skirt and Stuart Weitzman shoes, while RaeLynn embraced color in an orange halterneck dress with a high-low hem.
We only wish she didn't choose such dark accessories!
At least, Cassadee proved to be some distraction with her almost ivy-like lace gown with sheer panels.
She was clearly going for the wow factor — but is she pulling it off???
Let us know what U think!!

Aww!! It's hard not to squeal from all the adorableness!
Gwen Stefani posed with her cute little niece Stella, who just so happened to be modeling her Harajuku Lovers costume collab with Chasing Fireflies!
If you ignore her dip dyed 'do and Stella's pink wig, don't they kind of look like twins??
"Stella and @gwenstefani #harajukugirl Gx @chasingff Gx"
This pic of Stella donning the pretty pink look is sure to have the exclusive costumes flying off the shelves! Plus, it clearly put a smile on Gwennie's face!
Want a better look at the collab?? Ch-ch-check out the other snap Gwen shared in the gallery (above)!
Halloween is right around the corner, after all!

Check out that contouring, y'all!
Yet despite that glamorous look, the Nashville guest star was rather dressed down in leggings and a distressed Guns 'n' Roses t-shirt, although her tousled hair was very rock 'n' roll!
But mostly we can't stop staring at all that perfect shading and highlighting on her face.
Isn't it amazing to be able to temporarily change the shape of your bone structure with just some bronzing powder?!
We're not really feeling her outfit, but there's some old Hollywood realness going on above the neck!

Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn got chummy at the Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet in Arlington, Texas on Sunday afternoon.
Aren't they so adorable???
The Voice alums took completely different approaches to dressing at the awards show, with Cassadee (who won The Voice in season 3) choosing a black-and-red print backless Badgley Mischka gown and strappy shoes.
She went full glam for sure!
RaeLynn, on the other hand, opted for a sexier silhouette in a fit-and-flare LBD with a tiered ruffle skirt (with lime green lining) and an exaggerated plunge sweetheart neckline.
This may be the most interesting dress of the event, as far as construction goes. It's really intricate!

These two up-and-comers sure are prompt.
If you're a country fan, then you're probably pumped for the Academy of Country Music Awards.
But no matter how excited you are, you aren't at Danielle Bradbery and Mickey Guyton's level.
That's because these two singers were a couple of the very first people on the red carpet!
Floral and black and white lines aren't pleasing to the eye, but they sure do scream country!
