She’s back to her lighter tresses, and Lauren Conrad told Chelsea Handler that it’s all thanks to her fans who voted for it.

Conrad explained, “It’s much lighter now. I did a poll on my website I just launched, of whether I should stay brown or go blonde, and blonde won.”

As for the style she was going for, the “Hills” babe shared, “It’s as if the sun did it, and not chemicals. You frame it blonde, then you do dark [on top], so it grows out naturally.”

Regarding the cancellation of her MTV show, Lauren said the network felt it was too high brow- both Conrad and Handler decided MTV is more interested in getting young girls “16 & Pregnant.” Ouch!
