Lauren Conrad has gone back to blonde hair

"My lil blonde bb is back," Kristin wrote in the caption to her 319,000 followers, alongside a gorgeous photo of Lauren posing on a bench. The former star of The Hills looks every inch a beauty icon in the snap, having opted for a soft dip dye of honey and platinum blonde hues for the ultimate winter-to-spring hairstyle.

Kristin also revealed that she was working on a photoshoot with Lauren for the star's latest clothing collection – and gave fans a sneak peek at one of the stunning hairstyles she created for the Californian beauty.

The amazing updo not only taps into the braid trend with side plaits, but the slightly messy and curly bun makes for effortless glamour – we'll definitely be trying the look for spring and summer.

Lauren caused a stir in December when she revealed she had dyed her locks an eye-catching shade of auburn, inspired by Kristin who has bright red hair. "Clearly, I'm obsessed with @kristin_ess," she joked on Instagram as she shared a selfie of herself with Kristin, both showing off their beautiful 'dos.

It seems however that Lauren missed her famous blonde hair, with the star having reverted back to the colour just two months after the initial makeover.

It comes as no surprise that the reality TV star experimented with a new look – in fact, she regularly tries different colours or lengths. Not only has Lauren previously enjoyed a brief stint as a brunette, but she has also tried a platinum blonde bob and even rocked a pink dip dyed hairstyle.
