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?

Actually, she has the skin tone to be blonde or brunette. I think the darker hair just takes some getting used to on her. It’s much more dramatic, and definitely makes you look twice at her. Hair color is such an easily changeable thing. She could do it with a much lighter shade of brown if what she tried wig-wise is too dark for her taste. She’s too young to believe she’s going to be blonde forever. God Bless her if that’s what she really wants, but man that would personally bore me to tears.

Every girl wants to try being a brunette, but not every girl can handle it!

She was on Laguna Beach and The Hills for years, she never got to really live. Now she is taking the opportunity to do other things that make her happy. Why are all of you so judgemental? Your not her so stop judging her and what she does with her life.
