Lauren Conrad’s new bob will give you serious hair envy

Lauren Conrad's bob

And you’ll never guess the reason behind the big chop

Lauren Conrad has just chopped her hair off and we are totally fangirling over her chic new ‘do.

Renowned for her signature long blonde waves, Lauren’s cute new bob is her shortest hairstyle yet. And we’re in love.

The glorious new short hair look was created by her long-time hairstylist Kristin Ess, who took to Instagram to share a photo of the finished product – in all its tousled perfection.

The blunt chin-length cut was styled with a deep side part and a gorgeous layered, choppy texture. Ess captioned the pic, “Shorter & shorter & shorter. This one…constantly raising the effortless chic bar.”

As for the inspiration behind the dramatic chop, it seems having a cute but practical and easy-to-style haircut is key for the 31-year-old working mum. Lauren told People, “I just cut it off. Honestly, it’s more of a time-saver.”

“I have to blow-dry my hair while my son is napping, and it doesn’t always last long, so less hair is less time. I don’t have time for a lot of hair.”

Lauren’s stylish new bob is providing some *major* hair inspiration. Our prediction? Despite Pinterest naming long hair and pixie cuts as the top hair trends for 2018, we have a feeling that Lauren’s new cut has just put short hair back in the running, too.
