On my way to a dinner party in Laurel Canyon last night, I stopped at Whole Foods to pick up some wine. Walking through the cheeses aisle, I spotted Lauren Conrad with an army of blonde hipsterbots, all clad in blue, purple and pink flannel shirts, and all with long blonde locks tied back in braids. (I am also convinced I saw Stephanie Pratt there, although she was on the other side of the store. Mysterious.) It pains me that I even know who these girls are…but let’s not pretend. I do know. I know what they look like, and I know who they date, and I know what their kitchen looks like, and I know that I need to stop watching MTV immediately before my IQ drops even further.
But! Back to Lauren! Her hair was some serious business: long and shiny and Boticelli-wavy, with said aforementioned braids woven throughout the back. I know Lauren goes to Warren-Tricomi in West Hollywood, visiting Kaz Amor for color and Christine Symonds for cut (both of whom I’ve seen before, and who do fabulous work)…but looking red-carpet perfect is easy. After all, you have a team of stylists catering to your every beauty whim, shellacking the bejeezus out of you until you resemble a Madame Tussauds wax mummy. The true test of celebrity cuteness (and hairstyling adeptness) is spying one of ‘em in real life, in flannels, at Whole Foods on a Sunday evening…and realizing that they are still undeniably gorgeous. You know, perhaps I’m smarter, a better writer, more kickass at Trivial Pursuit, maybe even quicker on the draw with an eyeliner pencil. But when it comes to the looks game, that damn LC has me beat. Sigh.
Rockin’ the waves n’ braids like nobody’s business…
Seriously. This girl’s hair is perfect.
