If you're in the market for a new haircut but are grappling with commitment issues, clip-on bangs could be just what you need. Getting a fringe cut into your exiting hairstyle is a great way to switch up your whole look but it can also be quite a commitment if your hair isn't naturally straight. That's where the clip-on bangs come in. Models, movie stars and Kardashians alike have all tried them with surprisingly impressive, if varying, levels of success.

If extensions and fake hair of any description just don't float your well-coiffed boat, a faux fringe might just help to change your mind. The key to rocking clip-ons like a pro? Making them look like they grew out of your own head.

To really get away with a set of clip-on bangs, you need to ask your stylist to trim them for you. They need to be a perfect fit for both your hairstyle and your face shape in order to look real.

After that, you're golden. Unlike real bangs, clip-on ones can't grow excessively every two weeks and thus require NO extra trips to the salon, repeat NO extra trips to the salon. They also don't require any heat styling either. This means you can change your entire hairstyle every day of the week if you want, without spending any extra time doing so.

As for the rest of your hair, you'll need to make sure it's ready to party with your fair-weather bangs. To this end, a simple blow-dry with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream will give you a smooth, flyaway-free texture which is really all you need. For extra shine, a mist of Strand-Smoother Serum Spray can work wonders.

Will you be faking a fringe anytime soon?
