Earlier this week, Lauren Conrad arrived at a book signing — for her fourth novel, The Fame Game (the first book in a new trilogy) – with a decidedly noticeable new ‘do. Her hair was pulled back in a lady-like high ponytail … the ends of which were dyed a florescent hot pink. Conrad has dip-dyed her hair before, but this is her brightest go at it yet and I love it! I’ve been thinking of doing something similar, maybe even just for a couple weeks before my next big hair cut. Winona has pink streaks in her blonde hair, while our girl Kate Torgovnick has been rocking a single blue streak for years — and both look fab. What do you think of the look? [TooFab]
Wait, before you answer, let’s look at more examples of this punky trend in action. I was sort of surprised to discover just how many celeb ladies had either dip-dyed their hair or added colorful streaks to their locks — and I’m not just talking about the Nicki Minaj’s of the world.

We never pegged Lauren Conrad as a side-boob exhibitionist, but here she is posing topless on the May 2012 cover of Glamour for the “Swimsuit Issue.” Wait, the swimsuit issue? Fifty percent of her swimsuit is missing! Gah, no one will be complaining . [Us Weekly]
Lauren Conrad wears many hats, a few of which I’d prefer she take off. (As a writer, it chaps my hide that she gets a serial book deal.) But one area I think Lauren excels in, besides masterfully wearing braids, is fashion design. I’ve liked a lot of the thing she’s done for her low-priced line for Kohl’s, but it’s her mid-priced line Paper Crown that really makes my closet ache. She just unveiled Paper Crown’s Holiday Collection and I’m totally into the crushed neutral velvet, floral prints, and champagne-colored frocks. Click through to see the full collection, in store
Lauren Conrad is nothing if not loyal to her fans and followers. And so when readers of her beauty site, The Beauty Department voted that she dip-dye her hair a light peachy color, Conrad acquiesced. The result? Peachy keen. What do you think? [Love. Might need to do this. -- Editor] [The Beauty Department]
Let us take a moment to review the trajectory of Lauren Conrad‘s career. She went from teen reality star, to fashion designer, to novelist. LC has multiple clothing lines, endorsement deals, a beauty website, a fashion book, a regular writing gig, and a series of novels. Seriously, does this girl sleep? Based on the aforementioned list, you’d think she would be too busy to do anything else, like, say, baking. Wrong! In her spare time she loves to whip up cupcakes, cookies, and cakes—so much so that she is planning to open up a fancy bakery in Hollywood. Keep reading »
Women always be changing their hair. It’s a maxim you can set your watch to. And celebrity ladies are no different. In fact, whether it’s for a role, because of a breakup, or simply because their agent told them putting blue streaks in their locks might garner them an extra bit of press (looking at you, Lauren Conrad), famous ladies are just as guilty as the rest of us of making impetuous hair moves. After the jump, we review some of the big hair changers so far this year — women who have gone from long to short, from short to long, from blonde to red and right back again. And don’t forget to tell us whose hair you covet and who you think should probably be sporting a paper bag over their head these days.
