Lauren Conrad’s Hairstyles & How to Do Them

I got the following email recently and thought it would make a great article:

"I am starting college next January and I want to do a Lauren Conrad hairstyle. What are some of her hairstyles so I can get this look?” – Sandra

I like Lauren Conrad‘s many hairstyles on The Hills, and have wanted to write about them for a while, so here goes.  What’s great about Lauren’s look is that it’s always changing – it seems like LC does her hair differently in every episode, so there are many ways to get that Lauren Conrad hair for yourself.

Hair Styling Basics

Before we get into the tutorials, let’s go over a few basics that you need to remember when you’re working with heat and your hair and attempting these styles.  If you’re already a hair pro, feel free to skip this section.

  • Really Important: ANY and EVERY time you heat-style your hair, be it with a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron, you need to use a heat protective product first!  If you don’t, you’ll fry your hair in the long-term.  This is doubly true if you have highlights or use permanent dye.  My favorite heat-styling product is Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream but I have also heard good things about Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum.
  • Second, make sure you buy quality tools to use in your hair. Since a flat iron touches your hair on both sides, there is so much potential for split ends & breakage it’s not even funny. If you invest in a ceramic flat iron like the CHI Turbo Flat Iron or ghd styler you will save your hair from so much damage  Similarly, a good quality curling iron will do wonders.
  • Third, remember that these tutorials are for styles that are easiest to do if you have medium-length straight/wavy hair like Lauren’s.  Those of you with curly hair will need to blow-dry your hair straight before attempting these looks, so they might not be so practical for every day.

Now that you’ve got all that, on to the tutorials…

Twisted Pullback

This hairstyle is super-easy to do.  All you need are some bobby pins, a little hairspray and a curling iron.  If your hair is naturally very curly, you will need to blow-dry it straight first.  Don’t worry about getting it perfect, this look works best if your hair has a little wave to it. 

Part your hair down the center and separate hair into sections.  I recommend doing the bottom layers of your hair first.  To curl, grab a one-inch section of hair, spray lightly with hairspray and then use a large barrel curling iron to make loose ringlets like Lauren’s.

Next, separate one-inch sections of hair from both sides of the front of your face,  loosely twist and pull them to the back of your head.  Secure with two bobby pins in an X or a cute clip, then spray to hold in place. 

Straight Chic Ponytail

This is similar to the Gossip Girl style chic ponytail that I talked about  in the article on quick and easy hairstyles.  The difference here is that Lauren’s look is smoother and sleeker, and she sometimes adds her trademark headband or head scarf to finish it off.

To get the hairstyle, you’ll need a flat iron, brush, elastic and some hairspray.  I recommend this look for "second day hair" if you don’t wash your hair daily, but if you do, it will work just as well on clean hair that has been blow-dried straight. 

First, apply a heat-protecting product (see "Hair Styling Basics" above.)  Next, part your hair to the side if attempting the first look. Don’t worry about a part if attempting the second.  Then flat iron your hair in sections starting with the bottom layers until it is pin-straight.  Finally, tilt your head back and brush your hair into a ponytail.  Secure with an elastic slightly above the nape of the neck.

If you have side bangs like Lauren and want to get her look in the first photo, pull out your bangs from the ponytail and arrange them how you want.  If you are going for her second look, just slip on a headband and spray your hair down with some hairspray to secure. 

Pin-Straight & Shiny

You know Lauren definitely loves this look because we see her wearing it all the time on The Hills and to red-carpet events. Unless your hair is absolutely pin-straight, you’re going to need a good quality flat iron to get this look.

To create this hairstyle, you need a blow dryer, a flat iron, and either hairspray or shine spray depending on how easily your hair stays straight.

Step one is to use a heat-protecting product to damp hair (see "Hair Styling Basics" above.)  Then even if you have semi-straight hair, blow it out, aiming your dryer down, NOT up, the hair shaft to create extra-smoothness.

Once your hair is dry, flat-iron your whole head in sections until your locks are pin-straight.

If your hair is naturally wavy and turns back to frizz a few hours after you straighten, you need to finish this look with hairspray.  Make sure to get one that doesn’t list water as the main ingredient – these will turn your hair back to waves in an instant.

If your hair is pretty straight naturally or stays straight for a while after you flat iron, use a shine spray to finish the look off.  I love Beyond Shine Mist; it makes your hair incredibly glossy!

Wavy With Side-Bangs

Here’s the look that Lauren has been wearing most recently.  I caught the first episode of The Hills season 3, and it looked like Lauren pretty much wore her hair wavy the whole time she was in Paris.  Don’t let her Paris disaster happen to you though: remember to keep your curling iron away from your designer dresses at all times!

For this hairstyle, you will need hairspray and a large barrel curling iron.  If your hair is curly, blow dry it straight first.  If your hair is straight or wavy, let it air-dry if possible.

First, part your hair slightly to the side.  Starting with the bottom layers, grab 1 to 2 inch pieces of hair, spray each piece with hairspray, then curl.  Stop winding the hair around the iron a few inches from the root – you want to keep those semi-straight. 

For Lauren’s first look above, section out your bangs from the rest of your hair once you’ve curled everything, then use your curling iron to "wing" the ends out, so the piece moves away from your face.  Use a little hairspray to hold.

For Lauren’s second look, slip on a stretchy headband over your finished hair, then arrange the front sections so that your bangs are tucked behind your ear.  Again, spray with hairspray to keep everything in place!

What do you think?

So there you have it: Lauren Conrad’s hairstyles in an easy step-by-step guide.  If you have any questions about any of this, just leave a comment and I’ll answer as soon as I can!  Which hairstyle is your favorite?  Would you wear these looks?

    This is off-topic but below is something i read and i laughed hysterically throughout it. It’s really, really on point with this season’s trends.

    Sandra – I’m glad you liked the article! Much love to you too and let me know if you have any more questions! :)

    Shar – Hmm, that article was okay but it kinda seemed like a really negative take on things. Also, it failed to recognize that trends as people report them are from the runways, obviously women have been wearing things for a long time and fashion is cyclical. Nothing is ever truly original – everything has to come from somewhere. Anyway, that article didn’t do it for me, sorry.

    I really love finding new hairstyles so I’m pretty excited you posted this. My favorite one is the Twisted Pullback because I’ve never seen anything like that before. I’ll have to try that out sometime.

    great post! i typically style my hair the same way everyday but this has given me some great ideas on how to switch it up while still remaining chic. kudos!

    I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean for it (the link and my comment) to be offending to anyone because i really do love this site and all the tips on it . . . i guess i should try wording my comment better.

    What i laughed about was how true fashion get recycled over and over (bell bottoms for instance.)

    Again sorry, and i hope you accept my apology. (Great job on the hairstyle article too, i’ve been dying to try out some new styles on my–boring–hair.)

    i love lauren’s new shorter hair on the Hills! I feel like I can never get my hair as pin straight as hers but I’m going to attempt haha. love the tips:)

    Megan – Yeah, it’s definitely different, huh? It’s super-cute though and one of the easiest styles to do too!

    Apresenta – Thanks :)

    Shar – Oh no it’s fine, it wasn’t offensive or anything like that! I just didn’t really get it! You don’t have to apologize, it’s totally fine :)

    Lauren – Yeah, I like it too – very chic! And I know, I think she must spend extra time to get her hair super-straight, but a really good flat iron works wonders too.

    Lauren has the prettiest hair. I love the straight hair look, I do it almost everyday. The problem though is that I just broke my flat iron this morning. My brother left the toilet open and in it went… I had a CHI and I was thinking about ordering another one, but then I saw really good reviews on the Solia. Do you know anything about either, and which one is better?

  10. 10
    April 11th, 2008 at 9:58 am

    Sarah – Oh no! Sorry to hear about your CHI. I have never heard of the Solia, but I did have a CHI turbo and it was soo fabulous, so I’m a little biased. I actually ended up breaking my CHI too (brought it to England and tried to use it with an adapter – bad move.) So now I have a HAI which is really great. I’d recommend either the HAI or CHI. Haha, I feel like I’m talking in code here…

    April 14th, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    Zara – Hmm, I imagine teasing the hair and some good volumizing hairspray! I’ve heard Phyto’s Volume Spray is really good (

    In the last style, the first photo, how would you wing it out? and could you use like hair straightners to acheive the same style?

  17. 17
    April 21st, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    k, you know that hairstyle she does with the headband braid thing? how do you do it??

  18. 18
    April 21st, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Manda – You’d just use your curler to pull the hair away from your face and concentrate on the ends to get the curl. Also, you could do it with a straightener, just pull away from your face and slightly up. Then spray with hairspray.

    Llalala – I talked about that hairstyle in another article: . I called it “sideways french braid” and that’s basically what it is! You need to know how to french braid, but it’s easy once you get it down!

    what about her new look when she does the braid across the front of her hair?

But her and I grew apart she have a real so called true love who sounded like or should I say almost looks liked Spencer. Maybe you and I, we both had comment about tried to trusted and testified about whose the real friend. I haved watched your show the laguna beach 2004 and the Hills. And I loved your hairstyle and your fashioned tips about being so classy and being very elegant

    December 2nd, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    Christina – You might need to get your hair wet and set it in hot rollers to get it to curl. Also, lots of an extra strong hold hairspray and a hot, hot curling iron might do the trick too! Also, I like Hot Tools curling irons – you can get them at Hope that helps!

    Speaking as a guy… LC has hot hair. I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve seen the show a few times and I’m always impressed by how classy she is amongst the rest of them. I’m liking all these hair styles.

    June 9th, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    My hair is naturally super thick, super blond, and super wavy!! But believe me, I couldn’t do half of that even if I had a pro stylist! All I need is a brush, bobby pins, and hairspray to look like the holiday barbie! Ponytails for me. 80’s revival anyone?

    I really love Lauren Conrad’s hairstyles and I’ve been trying to find ways to do them for so long. This showed me some great ways, and it’s not quite as hard as I thought. This is a great article, just wondering though, you mentioned “large barrell,” would you say one and a half inch would work or do you have a different suggestion? I have a suramic and the other type, which would be better??.
    Thanks a bunch. Xoxo..,.

    I just recently, and by accident, came across your site somehow, and I absolutely love it! On top of that when I clicked under the ‘popular’ posts and saw Lauren’s name I got excited because I love her!
    Haha I’ve always been wondering about her hairstyles (in which I believe I did once come across this exact page a while back looking for tips on her styles) and finally bought myself a GOOD curling iron.
    A friend of mine gave me a major tip when curling your hair like Lauren’s every day style (btw she’s going to a Redken hair school): your hair works best with any “major styling” or coloring when “dirty”. As in you haven’t washed it in a day and your hair is normally greasy/ oilly. I usually wash my hair then blow dry it and wear it for the day, sleep on it, and the next day I’ll curl it or maybe even the day after. Point is, it really does work a little better if your hair isn’t perfectly clean!

    no matter what i do to my hair, how many times i straighten it, once i step out of my home, and the moment i start sweating – poof! its all frizzy… this is just so depressing! i have curlyish and frizzy hair. i even tried to straighten it using wellastrate strong, but it just wont get straight! but i do not want a professional straightening because i want my hair to look natural, not poker straight. please help!

    great website by the way! i totally like your optimistic take on things. thanks a lot! (:

    hey, this page was really useful. i have naturally curly/ wavy hair and i used to straighten it alot n then it became really fried n frizzy n i have soo many split ends. the thing i wanted to ask you was how do people like lauren straighten n add heat to their hair without damaging it soo much… and i was also woundering if you could tell me how to fix flyaways n sometimes i get hair that sticks out on my sides – when i tie my hair into a ponytail. is there something i could do to prevent this or use a product. i was also woundering if you think the tresemme thermal creation line is any good coz i’m thinking about buyin something from there to protect my hair, because i never used heat protectant before n now how have broken peices of hair at the top n it looks really bad.. i know i’ve asked alot of questions, sorry. i’d really apprecite the help, thankx.

    i curl my hair alll the time, while using hairspray and everything at home.
    but they never seem to hold??
    **the only time they do hold is when my hair dresser does themm:/

    October 2nd, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Allison – Are you using a good quality curling iron? You need to spend a little more money on a good ceramic curling iron that goes up to REALLY high heat. Ulta sells some good ones. I’d say you should spend at LEAST $30 on an iron, ideally $50 or more. That’s probably what your stylist uses and why your curls hold at the salon. Also, use a good hairspray.

    Sierra, try usin some good hair products to mousterise ur hair and do not use curlers or straighteners till ur hair is better!
    oily hair is also quite common but u need to stop usin chi heat products cos they react weird to other types of hair.

    Thanks for these hairstyles! It will really help me to improve my look!
    I have medium length, straight hair and already have found my look (tight curls suit me best) I come to school with this look quite often but its starting to get annoying because on my 3rd day of curly hair, one of my best mates came in with it too! Now my other best mates doing it and it really bugs me. At school, before they started to have curly hair too, people used to say ‘oh you look really nice with hair like that’ but now they ask my friends how they do their curls and where they got the idea from, but my friends always lie and say that it’s natural. This is why I would like to change my style. If you could, please help me to choose a style for my look.
