How to Hack Your Hair (Without Making any Cuts)

Did you see Carrie Underwood’s brand-new haircut this weekend at the IHeartradio Music Festival this weekend? She sported a new dramatic mane with bangs and layers, yet seemed to have none of the post-haircut remorse that we always experience after leaving the salon.  

If you’ve ever wanted to chop off your locks, but find yourself reluctant to pull the trigger, then we are about to let you in on a little three-word secret: clip-in extensions!  

It is an effortless way to test-drive any hairstyle without the commitment. If you need a little encouragement or just want to transform your look for a day, do it in three easy steps: 1. Pop open the clips 2. Affix to your natural hair 3. Walk up to your friends in a bar and see how they react.  

Follow in the footsteps of Jamie-Lynn Sigler who recently stepped out with blunt bangs at the Tracey Reese fashion show during New York Fashion Week.  

If you want to try this bold look but are reluctant to make the drastic cut, our recommendation is to try the Dancing with the Stars Bango Tango Extensions ($22: or the Hairdo Clip-In Bangs ($29: which allow you to achieve this look without commitment.  

We love sharing our recommendations so we’re hosting a Twitter giveaway with three first prizes of Dancing with the Stars Bango Tango Extensions (in your shade).  To enter, follow us @MrsBeautyExpert and tweet the following message, "I love @mrsbeautyexpert and want a transformation for my tresses #MFITYMI."  Good luck!
