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?

I thought she didnt want to be in the spotlight anymore? So… why is she still giving interviews and posing for pics?? Idiot…

Melanie on

I actually like the brown on her..but blondes always do it better.

Pola on

She looks great!

Debbie on

Nicole….she doesn’t want to be on The Hills anymore, she’s pursuing other things like her book. I think that The Hills just wasn’t the kind of thing she wanted to be know for.

I think the brown looks great on her but so does her natural blonde. She can easily pull off either color.

emily on

I think she looks nice brunette. But I like blonde better. I think it’s good she’s leaving the Hills. it’s time for her to pursue other things she’s more passionate about.

Sherrie on

She was blonde? I don’t know about you guys, but I kind of thought she was already a brunette. Now, she’s just a shade darker without her sunny highlights. I looks great, it was to brassy before the current dye job.

Mimi on

Go Away, Untalented Nobody…Please Go Away!

Susan on

I think she looks good with brown hair.

Sara on

she looks beautiful with brown hair, but yes, blonde is better.. it lights up her face more.

Ann on

She looks good as a brunette. Blond hair is beautiful… but I don’t think so Melanie… brunettes and redheads do it just as well…
