If there’s one person that loves switching up their hair, it’s Lauren Conrad. In 2012, the ex-Hillsie dyed her strands everything from hot pink to blue to peach, but this year it’s ALL about the cut. Last night, she posted an Instagram pic that debuted—GASP—bangs! Her soft, ’60s-inspired fringe looked gorge with her blonde ombre strands and giant tulle bow, and—to be totally honest—this feels like a pretty bold move for LC. I mean, she’s perfected the center-parted, beachy waves for, well, as long as we can remember! (See: all of Laguna Beach.)
With @kristin_ess and flirting with the idea of Bardot bangs… Thoughts?

We have to admit we’re weren’t too surprised by this new-found fringe, though, because just a day earlier she tweeted “With @Kristin_Ess and flirting with the idea of Bardot bangs… Thoughts?” (In case you didn’t know, Kristin Ess is her longtime hair stylist who is responsible for giving LC the best blonde waves in the game and often contributes KILLER hair tutorials to Lauren’s website, TheBeautyDepartment.com.) We loved that LC used ’60s fashion icon Brigitte Bardot as inspiration for her ’do because she mastered the effortlessly-cool, wispy bangs better than anyone in recent memory. (OK, fine, maybe Alexa Chung comes close.) But tell us— do you like Lauren Conrad better with bangs or without? Let us know in the comments below!
