With just four more sleeps to go, we’re all getting seriously excited about Christmas — but it looks like Lauren Conrad has taken that festive anticipation one step further… to her hair.
Posting a picture to Instagram, it was clear where the reality derived her inspiration: her stylist and colourist Kristin Ess. "Clearly, I'm obsessed with@kristin_ess...," LC captioned the image.
The rich auburn colour is the first major change we've seen from The Hills star since she chopped her hair into a lob almost a year ago... and fuelled the lob craze we've seen continue well into 2015.
All we can say is thank goodness her signature winged eyeliner is still there - not only would we probably not have recognised her, but there's only so much change we can deal with at once, after all.

LC isn't the only A-lister mixing things up for the holidays.
The inspo behind Alyssa Milano's new short hair? Erm... her own hair circa early 2000s, it seems.
