Posted Wednesday April 2, 2014 12:55 PM GMT

She posted a few snapshot of her lavender locks on Instagram yesterday (April 1), but now Lauren Conrad admits the new color is officially fake.

After shocking her fans and critics alike with the colored coif, the former “Laguna Beach” star revealed she setup the gag with hairstylist Kristin Ess in honor of April Fools Day.

Miss Conrad instructed, “To get this exact shade of purple, we went out and gathered rare amethyst stones. Next, we ground them up by hand until they turned into a fine powder. Then we added 2 pinches of grape koolaid.”

She continued, “Mix that in a bowl with 20 oz. of mermaid tears. Apply all over and let it sit for 16 hours. Lather, rinse, repeat. #aprilfoolsyall#shedoesntevenlikepurple.”
