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.
Lauren Conrad has never really been my hair idol. Okay fine, I totally have tried to replicate that braid thingy she does—but other that than, I’ve always found her long, blonde locks a little safe. However, last week on her website TheBeautyDepartment.com, Lauren posted a photo of a woman with multi-colored streaks and asked readers whether she should go for it, too. They voted yes. Awesomely, Lauren did it and is now rocking pink, purple, blue, and green streaks on her tips. Personally, I love the new look. I call it Nuevo My Little Pony. [MTV] Keep reading »
has had cameras following her every move and cutesy glance from ages 18 to 22. It sure looked like she would be continuing the trend when she announced in December
that she would be shooting a new reality series for MTV, this time focusing on her fashion moguling. But apparently, MTV has nixed the show. “MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life,” Lauren said. “Sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.” Which is code for: no you cannot film me and my boyfriend bickering over the merits of crunchy versus creamy peanut butter.

Here at The Frisky, we devote a large amount of our time to righting the wrongs of the fashion world. But sometimes when we look around and see that things like cargo pants
, backwards caps, and sneaker heels still
exist, we often feel that our fighting, praying, and pleas fall on deaf ears. Which is why we’re happy to hear that our homegirl Lauren Conrad
has joined in the fight against Fashion F**k Ups, or FFUs. Listen to her wise words, and maybe, if we all just try a little harder not to wear Ed Hardy bedazzled shirts (which, honestly, shouldn’t be that hard), the world will be a better place. [Styleite

You’ve been going through Lauren Conrad withdrawal ever since she walked away from “The Hills,” right? No? OK, well, then you probably won’t be very excited about the news that Lauren will once again be starring in an MTV reality series. She revealed to Ryan Seacrest on Friday that a new show about her life is in the works—and this time it’ll focus exclusively on her work life as she designs and markets her clothing line. In other words, it will be all the blah of “The Hills” with none of the juiciness. Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad has announced that she’s starting a new clothing line with her best friends. Just to recap: Conrad has already dabbled in the fashion business when she created a line of jersey dresses a few years ago (that tanked) and, more recently, when she teamed up with Kohl’s to do a gently priced daywear collection. (It was cute … but wasn’t a runaway success.) “The Hills” star tells People, “This will be more specialty basics, more of a boutique line. It will be at a higher price point. It will be very different.” So what are “specialty basics”? Sounds kind of like high-priced jersey dresses to us, which we’ve already seen from L.C. And who are the “best friends”? Lo would be awfully dissed if she heard that and it turns out she’s not a part of the project.
Help us all? Or maybe this will be good? [People Style Watch] Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad rocks a decidedly casual look for shopping at upscale designer store Herve Leger. I think those are the same glasses I have! [Los Angeles, 7/27/10] Keep reading »
We thought it was kind of funny when Spencer Pratt showed up to the after-party to celebrate the final episode of “The Hills” dressed as an old homeless man to protest the fact that he wasn’t on the guest list. “My high is how much people hate me,” he said. He also elaborated that he was dressed as a crazy old man because “when your life is edited into one-minute segments, that’s what you look like in the end.”
But there were several people who were not amused—the cast of the show, who witnessed his increasingly erratic behavior first hand. “He was not even allowed at the curb. The talent are really physically afraid of him,” a source said. “Lauren Conrad had a Taser in her bag.” Lauren’s publicist won’t say whether this is true or not, but I would like to think it is. How surreal would it have been if Lauren tased Spencer in the parking lot? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Admittedly, “The Hills” hasn’t been the same since Lauren Conrad left, but die-hard fans are going to have to find a new way to fulfill their need for fake drama and blank stares now that the show is finally coming to an end. For those who just can’t live without Kristin, Lo, Stephanie, and Audrina in their lives, Converse is here to help. The shoe brand decorated a pair of their sneaks with snaps of the stars, so now you can walk around and show off your love for the girls, while undoubtedly enduring a few judging looks from passersbys. If that doesn’t satiate your “Hills” love, don’t get too depressed just yet. There are rumors that Stephanie Pratt is thinking of moving to New York to join the cast of “The City” — which hasn’t been canceled? — in order to keep up with her reality show career and continue with her crocodile tear action. Watch out, Manhattan. [Crushable] Keep reading »
