How to Get Miranda Lambert's Hot Pink CMAs Hair in 5 Easy Steps

When Miranda Lambert hit the red carpet of the 2015 CMAs with dip-dyed hot-pink strands, her style got everyone talking. And believe it or not, her bright hue and awards show style are easier to get than you might think.

For starters, if you've ever toyed with the idea of pink hair but haven't been able to commit, Miranda's stylist Johnny Lavoy has the absolute best solution: clip-in hair extensions. That's right, the country singer's mane is still blond as blond can be -- he just purchased blond clip-ins that matched Miranda's shade, then used pink hair color to create the vibrant hue.

Lavoy shared a step-by-step breakdown with Fashion Times of how he created the look -- and how you can too. Here, we break it down with some of our own tips thrown in:

1. Fake it to make it.

Find hair extensions that match your current hair color as closely as possible to get the most natural effect possible. We personally like Hairdo clip-in extensions, because they have such a great range of products. Color the pieces with pink hair dye (we suggest Manic Panic Semi-Permanent Hair Color Cream in Hot Hot Pink). Once they're ready to use, clip extensions into your hair and do as Lavoy did for Miranda -- cut and style them to match the rest of your hair's length and shape.

2. Pump up the volume.

For Miranda's turn down the red carpet, Lavoy says he wanted to give her a look that was sleek and sexy. To do just that, he applied a volumizer and blew out her hair with the PRO Beauty Tools Professional 1875 W IONIC AC Motor Dryer using a large round brush.

3. Make it smooth.

"To get a sleek polished look, I first created a strong side part," Lavoy told Fashion Times. "Then, I used the PRO Beauty Tools 1" Professional Ceramic Shine Digital Straightener to really smooth out her hair. Lastly, I used hairspray to hold the style."

4. Get performance pretty.

To get Miranda's texturized onstage look, use a beach spray -- we suggest Bumble and bumble Surf Infusion -- for a little texture. Johnny scrunched her hair while drying it with the PRO Beauty Tools Professional 1875 W IONIC AC Motor. "I love this dryer because of its quick dryer power, especially backstage when I'm only given a minute for a quick hair change," he says.

5. Go for the curl.

To create that sexy texture, Johnny added a little heat -- with two different-sized curling irons. "I alternated using [PRO Beauty Tools Professional Gold Curling Irons] in 1" and the 1¼" irons, which helped me created the perfect rock and roll, rocker-chic waves," he explains. "Finally, I used hairspray to hold the look."
