Earlier this month, when Lauren Conrad posted a photo of her new haircut—a lobbed-off version of her widely admired blond locks—her 6.3 million Instagram followers practically became unhinged. The simple snap received more than 325,000 likes and nearly 3,000 comments. This is the power of the former MTV reality star.

But Conrad, who gave birth to her first son with husband William Tell in July, practically gave a verbal shrug to the uproar. “Less hair is less time,” the busy mom and founder of The Little Market responded. “I don’t have time for a lot of hair.”

Other things besides her hairstyle have changed, too, since Conrad has begun juggling her career and motherhood. As the cofounder of The Little Market, an online business selling ethically sourced products made by artisans around the world that empowers and supports women, Conrad has spent the past four years traveling internationally to source products. This could mean anything from Tunisian ceramics to hand-blocked quilts. Before she started this journey with her cofounder Hannah Skvarla, Conrad admits she hadn’t traveled much outside the United States. But since the birth of her son, Liam, she has since put travel—though certainly not work—on hold.

Case in point: Conrad, whose life is now more appropriate fodder for HGTV than reality television, recently finished a kitchen renovation project in her Los Angeles home. “I really like kitchens to be bright and light, so I just did it in all white and brass. Actually, my contractor made fun of me because I had white subway tile, and he called me boring, which is fair,” she says, laughing. “So for the first time, I brought color into my kitchen! I brought in a very pale blue-green-gray color as a little hexagon backsplash, so that was a big step for me.”

Conrad alternates, she says, between decorating her own homes in Southern California with or without a designer. “I’ve redesigned several times, and I’ve done it completely on my own and also with a designer to do the heavy lifting where I knew what I wanted and would show her pictures and say, ‘I want this,’ and she would find me several options at different price points,” she explains. “So I’ve done it all different ways. I enjoy doing it myself and doing it slowly if I can—you don’t want to open a catalog and find your living room layout on one page.”

One way Conrad prevents this (besides slapping her own hand when she finds herself using too much white), is to fill her home with personal items. “I think your home should be comfortable and filled with things that make you happy and really represent your aesthetic,” she says. “I think it’s fun when you get to learn about a person when you go into their home, or on your shelves you have things you’ve acquired over the years of travel, or gifts handed down from the family. It’s really fun to put together a home, and it should represent you and the things you love.”

Thanks to her work with The Little Market, which has a home decor–heavy selection and now works with 56 artisans, this is easy for Conrad. “I definitely have a lot more pillows,” she says, laughing. “I never really paid much attention to decorative pillows, but that’s something we do a lot of in The Little Market because so many places have these amazing textiles but they’re not really sure how to sell them. Pillows have become our go-to when we see these beautiful fabrics, like, ‘Let’s make a pillow with it, because I want it on my couch!’”

The company has also simplified the art of gift giving for Conrad, whether it be for a friend or significant other (she says her husband particularly loves the company’s quilts). And, as a new mom, there’s nothing better than a quality time-saver. “If you don’t have time to decorate, just fill your home with flowers. That’s the best thing I’ve come up with,” she shares. “We recently threw a birthday party for my mother-in-law, maybe a month after my son was born, so I didn’t have time to put together a ton of stuff. A friend of mine’s a florist, and I just filled the house with flowers—it felt decorated.”

Lauren Conrad is finally explaining her new look!

The new mom and fashion designer teased her fans on social media about getting a dramatic haircut by posting a slow-motion video on her Instagram story showing her long blonde strands in a low ponytail being cut off several days ago. She captioned the photo, “bye!”

When we caught up with the star to discuss her new holiday collection for her LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s, she told us: “Yeah, I just cut it off. Honestly, it’s more of a time saver. I have to blow dry my hair while my son is napping and it doesn’t always last that long so less hair is less time. I don’t have time for a lot of hair.“

Conrad, who has been a constant source of hair inspiration since she burst on the scene in days of Laguna Beach and The Hills, turned to her go-to hairstylist Kristin Ess for the chop. “Kristin is so sweet,” says Conrad. “She’s been coming to my house for appointments just because it’s hard for me to get out and I just asked her to cut it all off.”

Conrad describes the look as a long bob, despite telling us in 2014 that she’d never, ever do a bob again. “I’m sure I said that,” Conrad laughs. “[Husband] William [Tell] said that, too. He said, ‘Why are you cutting your hair? You said you weren’t going to do it again.’ I was like ‘I did?’”

One thing her new look is not? A mom cut, she says. “Kristin doesn’t do mom cuts,” says Conrad. “She cuts moms’ hair. But I don’t think she wants me to call any haircut she does a mom cut.”

Lauren Conrad has brought so much hair inspiration into this world. And now, the new mom is switching things up with a brand new, blunt chop that we can’t wait to channel for fall.

Conrad posted a video on her Instagram story over the weekend, in which she showed her long blonde strands, which were pulled back into a low ponytail, being chopped right off in slow motion.

The star then bid farewell to her long ponytail with another photo captioned, “bye!”

And while we haven’t yet seen the final look, it’ll most likely be something along the lines of the shoulder-length blunt cut she had back in 2014. And if you’re anxious about her losing too much length, don’t worry: She promised us then that she’d “never go bob again.”

Lauren Conrad LOVES Halloween! Last week she shared her 2017 Halloween Costume as Cruella De Vil, and now she shares some more Halloween Costume ideas. They are pretty easy to put together, she shares on her website.

There are few posts we love more than our annual Halloween costume posts here on LaurenConrad.com (did you catch Lauren’s costume reveal last week?). And while there are certain years where we have plenty of time to plan our crafty costumes out a month in advance, other years are more of a scramble-to-find-anything kind of costume process. If this Halloween is the latter for you, then we have just the trick. All you’ll need is your bestie and a few items from your very own closet. Yep, you read that right: You really don’t need to spend a dime to recreate these easy best friend costumes. Here’s how to put them together…

No Dalmatians were harmed in the making of Lauren Conrad’s Halloween costume.

Lauren Conrad unveiled this year’s look on Instagram Thursday and directed followers to her official blog for more details. In previous years, the 31-year-old MTV reality star has dressed up a ballerina and a mermaid. “This year I decided to go a little less sweet and channel one of my favorite Disney villains instead: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians,” she wrote. Conrad modeled a faux fur coat (“Etsy is a great place to look for a vintage one,” she wrote), as well as a black slip dress, red opera length gloves and red pumps. She sprayed her hair black and white, then applied bright red lipstick. Conrad accessorized her look with a LC Lauren Conrad handbag.

“I almost always make my Halloween costumes from scratch—the process usually involves cutting, sewing, and a whole lot of tulle. But this year, I found myself with a little less time on my hands (I’m sure my fellow new mothers can relate…), so I opted for a less time consuming costume,” she wrote. “I still put together this costume myself, but all of the individual pieces can be purchased—no sewing skills required. The hair is a little challenging to style, but other than that it’s really pretty simple… The other reason I chose this costume is that I knew Liam would make the most adorable Dalmatian! I can’t wait to dress him up for his first Halloween.”

Here’s what you will need to create this costume:
