UPDATE: 10/28 -- Conrad went from short to even shorter Monday, Oct. 27, when Kristin Ess, hairstylist and co-founder of the Beauty Department, chopped off a few more inches from the star's hair.
Lauren Conrad has a fresh new look after cutting inches off her long, blond tresses.
The designer posted an Instagram photo Wednesday of her chopped locks, which now fall just below her shoulder. "Got my first haircut in years," she wrote.
Paparazzi got some photos of Conrad's new hair when she was photographed running errands.
The 28-year-old offered up some tips about maintaining healthy hair during an interview with Byrdie in June.
"I think it’s important to take days off. Whether it’s pulling your hair into a low pony or a sleeker, easy hairstyle, it’s good to not style your hair every day," she said. "I think -- depending on your hair type -- not washing your hair every day helps too, since you’re taking away your hair’s natural oils every time you shampoo."
