Over the past decade, Lauren Conrad has become known for her polished, perfect beach waves, but back in 2014, she was one of the originators of the now iconic lob.

And just last week, the new mom took to Instagram Stories to share her return to the hairstyle she popularized three years ago with a snap and a “bye!” emoji to her long blonde locks.

Conrad revealed the end result on her Instagram last night, showing off a slightly wavy, shaggy short cut by her longtime stylist and pal, Kristin Ess.

Ess shared her own photos of Conrad’s stunning new look, with the caption, “Ohhhhh. Now I see what portrait mode is good for. Last week we traveled 3 years back in time and returned to the chop that kicked off my bob & lob obsession on my original kween. #ClearTheShoulders.”

People caught up with baby Liam’s mom at the launch of her new holiday collection for her LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s yesterday, and she revealed exactly why she made the dramatic change. “Yeah, I just cut it off,” she said. “Honestly, it’s more of a time saver. I have to blow dry my hair while my son is napping and it doesn’t always last that long so less hair is less time. I don’t have time for a lot of hair.”

She added, “Kristin is so sweet. She’s been coming to my house for appointments just because it’s hard for me to get out and I just asked her to cut it all off.”

Moms everywhere will totally understand the need for a low-maintenance look, especially in the chaotic months following the birth of a newborn. Of course, new moms, old moms, and non-moms alike, Conrad’s new ‘do is perfect for any busy woman on the go!
