Lauren Conrad can be polarizing. Twenty-somethings love her because they grew up addicted to MTV’s Laguna Beach, and then its wildly popular spin-off, The Hills. Besides her core group of reality television fans, most people cannot figure out why exactly she’s even famous in the first place. Fortunately, she’s beginning to win over her naysayers, because the reality star-turned-fashion designer has recently enjoyed a boomingly successful clothing line collaboration with affordable department store, Kohl’s – and her duds are stylish, high quality and affordable. Even if you’ve never seen a single episode of The Hills, you’ll be impressed with LC’s style savvy – and if you dare enter Kohl’s, chances are you’ll be leaving with a heaping pile of her amazing clothes at amazing prices.
Now that Ms. Conrad is beginning to cement her status as a rising star in the fashion world, she’s even created her own beauty and lifestyle blog, TheBeautyDepartment.com, where she personally interacts with her fans, posts photos and asks for feedback about her latest projects. And that’s exactly where she recently shared pictures of her post-breakup, rainbow-colored new ‘do that has us completely smitten. Whether or not you’re an LC fan, you’ll love her adorable and fun summer hairstyle. Read below for secrets to pulling off a multicolored coif, even if it’s just for one night!
In true reality star-fashion, Lauren polled her fans (via her website) about what colors to dye her blonde locks, post-breakup from longtime beau, actor Kyle Howard. She took their advice to add pink, purple and teal streaks – and we’re actually digging the funky look, especially for carefree summer soirées.
If you’re tempted to give these crazy colors a try, it’s easy to add temporary highlights without taking the permanent plunge at the salon. Use Lauren’s star style as inspiration, and add a few clip-in faux hair extensions for a risk-free trial. Complete your new fabulous ‘do with a fun and flirty sundress (courtesy of LC by Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, of course) for celebrity-inspired style all summer long!
