Well, it’s just about that time. Winter officially starts in four days and with the seasonal shift comes an urge to switch things up. Maybe that means cleaning out your wardrobe or maybe just maybe it’s time for a whole new look. It looks like our girl Lauren Conrad opted for the latter.

The reality star-turned-entrepreneur took to Instagram earlier today to share what might just be the biggest surprise we’ve received so far this holiday season… She’s now a redhead! Lauren captioned the photo, “Clearly, I’m obsessed with @kristin_ess…” Kristin Ess is LC’s trusted stylist who is standing next to her and also helped her transition from long locks to a lob last year.

We never thought we’d see the day when Lauren ditched her classic, Californian blonde locks, but it seems those The Hills cast members are all full of surprises this week (Audrina, we’re looking at you).
