Hair-raising news!

Kate Gosselin is shedding her $7,000 hair extensions on Wednesday, her stylist Ted Gibson tells Radaronline.

But fear not: that doesn't mean the reality star will be reverting back to the spiky short 'do from her Jon and Kate Plus 8 days.

Gibson explains that he'll put Gosselin's extensions back in-- featuring new, multiple shade of blond -- on Thursday.

"We're taking them out and we're not putting them back in until Thursday. So she'll have short hair for a day," says Gibson, who has worked with A-listers like Angelina Jolie.

What will her new, improved locks be like? "We're actually doing three different shades of blonde, a caramel, a beige blond and a little bit of a lighter blonde," Gibson said.

The latest hair switch-up, of course, is for the 34-year-old mom's big debut on Dancing With the Stars March 22. "The extensions will last through the whole time she's on the show," Gibson promised.

Gosselin and partner Tony Dovolani will dance for viewer votes against the likes of The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka, Pamela Anderson, Shannon Doherty, Pussycat Dolls' Nicole Scherzinger and Olympic skater Evan Lysacek.
