This is the story about a girl named Lauren Conrad who had a dream—and that dream was to get a haircut. Twice. One haircut, followed shortly by another haircut. No one believed she could do it, or actually everyone pretty much knew she could do it, but wasn't really sure why she did it, or really why anyone might care. But people do care. So much. And now she looks like a Nasty Gal model, which isn't a terrible thing, the end.
