You voted, and she listened! After asking fans to weigh in on her next hair hue, Lauren Conrad is back to blonde. “It’s much lighter now,” she told Chelsea Handler Monday night on E!’s Chelsea Lately. “I did a poll on my website I just launched, of whether I should stay brown or go blonde, and blonde won.” The former reality starlet went brunette in January, sporting a deep color touched with a few blonde highlights. Conrad explained that her newly dyed locks — a blend of different colors — were meant to emulate surfer-girl hair. “It’s as if the sun did it, and not chemicals,” she joked. “You frame it blonde, then you do dark [on top], so it grows out naturally.” Wearing a dress from her Paper Crown holiday collection, Conrad revealed that she’s currently writing the first in her second series of three books — and needed to wrap it up. “My manuscript was due today,” she shared. Tell us: Do you prefer Conrad as a blonde or brunette?
