We already got a sneak peek at Lauren Conrad‘s brunette tresses when she was spotted on the set of a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar and now, the images are out! The fashion magazine had the California girl change up her signature blonde hair for a day-long experiment. But even a wig wasn’t enough to disguise the famous reality star. “I think initially the wig threw people off, but they figured it out. I felt like it only disguised me for a moment, and then it made me feel like I was hiding, which made me feel silly,” Lauren tells Harper’s. Lauren might have considered dying her hair dark to keep the Hills producers from for coercing her to come back on screen, but “I went into a wig store and tried on a brown wig, and they all laughed at me. All these women [who worked there] were like, ‘You look like Hannah Montana.’ So after a day in her dark wig, Lauren’s verdict was in. “Day to day, I can only do blonde. Everything else makes me look sort of plain-Jane.” Pick up the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar to read more about of Lauren’s day as a brunette. Issue hits stands July 21st. Tell us: Do you think Lauren looks good as a brunette?

It looks like a wig to me. Nothing looks real about it.

Love her as a blonde and brunette!

Jaclyn on

She is actually very talented. Her new book is apparently doing very well.

Tessa on

She’s a cutie, and I think she looks great as a brunette. She would look great as a redhead also. She has the perfect skintone that goes well with all hair colors. My opinion; try out all kinds of looks and just have fun with it!

I can honestly say that I don’t understand why we should care about this person or the fact that she dyed her hair.

Joe Klemencic on

That girl is an idiot. She couldn’t even tell David Letterman what her own books were about. Sex sells, clearly.


MIMI………..you are such a hater. Get a life. you’re the nobody! LOL at MIMI the Hater

Jess on

she looks OK… and I guess no matter how much we comment she will go ahead and do whatever she wants cos it’s her life… and I wouldn’t want anyone commenting on my looks… so…. good for her

Ella on


Are you dumb or what? She just finished her first book and is on a book tour now….

Susan on

I agree with Mimi! “Go away!”
She can only do blonde, everything else makes her plain Jane? Whatever!
She’s only “famous” because of “reality” TV. Who cares what color hair she has? Her clothing line is nothing fabulous, her Avon line is silly, and
Lauren Conrad as a serious author? Please!
She’s milked her 15 minutes long enough! Leave her
alone and let’s hope she fades away and takes “Speidi” with her!!
