Lauren Conrad must have heard that we were wondering if her favorite hairstyle was starting to feel a little same-y, because she just shook things up in a big way.

Earlier this week, the star said on Twitter that she was “flirting with the idea” of bangs, but we figured she was bluffing: Conrad has had the same long, sideswept, slightly ombré waves for years.

Then she posted a pic to Instagram of some long, highlighted bangs topped by a bow, but we remained skeptical. Stars do love their clip-in bangs, after all.

But we hear through the beauty grapevine that these are the real deal, so now we’re putting ourselves on Conrad Bang Watch. Tell us: Are you into Lauren’s new bangs, or will you miss the waves?
