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?

WOW, what a sophisticated look!! She’s very lucky she can pull off anything and still look radiant.

I guess I am the only one who thinks the hair looks really weird.

Ok, could that wig look any more FAKE? I mean, with all her money and the people there at the magazine that are doing her hair, couldn’t they find a way to make it more realistic looking? How can anyone even comment on THAT and say it looks good. The color is the only thing that looks good, Not the hairstyle.

Maybe she just doesn’t want cameras following her anymore she probably wants to be in the spotlight she is promoting a book, but she just wants people to focus on her talents instead of her drama.

Donna on

I actually think the dark color makes her look more exotic than the overdone blond color that everyone has.

It’s the same old story “People Reading Housewife”. If you don’t care about someone or something, why spend your time reading about them/it? Find something better to do than sit around being negative!

I think that she looks ok brunette. But i like her with blond hair much better!!! :) :)
