Thinking About Chopping Your Hair into a Bob? Here’s Lauren Conrad’s Advice

The bob has easily become THE biggest hair trend of the year. From Beyoncé to Snooki, Jessica Simpson to Britney Spears, every week brings news of another celebrity chopping her locks.

But just because everyone else is doing it, doesn’t mean the look is necessarily right for you.

Lauren Conrad — who chopped it off after her wedding last year — is the perfect example of someone who pulls it off with style and ease, but she has some advice for everyone else who’s thinking about going for the extreme cut themselves.

After cutting off her hair in the early 00s, the Laguna Beach alum swore she’d never do it again… And, if we’re being honest, we all sort of agreed with her.

However, she rocked her go-to ombré locks and “basic sausage curls” — a name Allure gave them — for several years until her hairstylist finally suggested something new and caused the 29-year-old to realize it was time for a change.

“I sort of thought that my hair was going to look exactly the way it did the last time if I cut it short,” Conrad tells People magazine. “But I think I had a very specific cut that just was unflattering to me so I worked with my hairstylist and she was confident we could find a cut that works.”

And it does indeed! Not to mention, Conrad also adds, “It’s fun to do something a little different, especially when you’ve had your hair the same way for a long time.”

So what about maintenance? Most ladies would think that shorter hair is easier when it comes to styling and getting ready in the morning, but LC has a small warning: “It’s a little more maintenance — you can’t resort to a topknot or a quick pony, you have to do it everyday.”
