We may be on the cusp of some major celebrity hair news, people! While we never thought we’d see the day when The Hills alum Lauren Conrad would go for a chop shorter than shoulder-skimming, it appears that the reality star may have just opted for a chin-length bob. Cue mass hysteria!

Buzz about a possible LC hair change up began when the former reality star’s longtime hairstylist Kristin Ess posted a photo to Instagram of a recently-sheared, blonde-bobbed gal. Kristin simply captioned the photo with “Bye,” and we’re unable to detect whether it’s actually Lauren who’s captured in the shot, but it very well could be!

People points out that there are more than a few factors that point towards this being the Laguna Beach star. For one, she’s got that trademark enviable blonde hue to her strands. Additionally, the amount of hair that the girl in question is holding up in the pony is the right amount that would have resulted if Lauren cut her hair. Finally, and most telling, is the fact that Kristin has a habit of posting photos of her hair muse all over her Instagram.

Now, we did a little research of our own, and noticed that the last photo Lauren posted featuring herself was from the day prior to that mysterious haircut. While we have our doubts that the bride-to-be would go with such an out-of-character, dramatic chop so close to her wedding, you never know! For now, we’ll keep our eyes locked on her Instagram and blog, just in case!

Do you like the idea of Lauren chopping off her hair?
