Lauren Conrad's hair just keeps getting shorter! A little over a month after the former reality star debuted a new shoulder-grazing lob on Instagram, she's back at it with yet another hair switch-up — and her latest upgrade just might be her shortest 'do yet.

She enlisted the expert hair-snipping skills of her longtime stylist, Kristin Ess, to chop her locks into a gorgeous chin-length bob, and we're feeling seriously inspired to copy it ASAP. Kristin cut Lauren's hair to directly line up with her chin and styled it by giving her a deep side part and flipping it over, creating a choppy, layered appearance. Her strands are relatively straight with the slightest bit of texture and bend, which you can achieve by subtly curving your strands with a flatiron (or, if you prefer to avoid using heated tools, by sleeping with your hair up in a ponytail). See for yourself how chic her brand-new hair looks.

It looks like she's officially ditched those dreamy signature waves from her Laguna Beach days for good (*cue the brief moment of silence for the most envy-worthy hair of my teenage years*). But can you blame her? It's been quite the busy year for LC, who gave birth to her first child, son Liam James, in July. Between raising her new son, designing items for her Kohl's line, and fulfilling her duties as cofounder of The Little Market, the 31-year-old working mom is quite the busy bee, and her new hassle-free cut is exactly what the doctor ordered. It's practical, it dries quickly, it's easy to style, and considering how much of a trendsetter LC is, we're predicting it'll be the new buzzy cut for the coming year.
