Lauren Conrad has made her debut as a redhead

The Hills star unveiled her gorgeous new look on Instagram, posting a photo of herself and celebrity hairstylist Kristin Ess, wearing her newly dyed tresses down in loose tousled waves to match Kristin's sideswept locks in a similar hue.

Lauren also revealed that it was actually close friend Kristin who inspired her to undergo the makeover, after she saw her friend's red tresses and began wanting the look for herself.

"Clearly, I'm obsessed with @kristin_ess…" she quipped in the caption to her 4.6 million followers.

Lauren is no stranger to experimenting with her tresses, regularly trying different colours or lengths. The star has not only enjoyed a brief stint as a brunette, but she has also tried a platinum blonde shade and even rocked pink dip dyed locks.

Lauren usually sports blonde tresses

However, there's no doubt that her new auburn hue is one of her boldest looks to date – and fans' compliments began pouring in just minutes after she posted the photo the social media website.

No doubt Lauren has been enjoying her first year of marriage with William Tell, after the couple wed back in 2014. Just a few weeks after the couple tied the knot in a beautiful Californian ceremony, Lauren revealed that life didn't "feel too different".

"It doesn't feel too different," she told Us Weekly. "We felt married before we were actually married."
