Tons of celebrities played jokes on April Fool’s Day—the meanest one was that Ryan Seacrest claimed that *NSYNC was going on tour!—but perhaps one of the best pranks was from Lauren Conrad. Lauren shared a post on her blog on April 1st with a gorgeous photo of herself with new purple hair…but we’re still unsure if the dye job is real or merely photoshopped to play a prank on her fans!

“I decided to take the plunge and try a semi-permanent color. This one stays in for 6 to 8 weeks before washing out. I really didn’t think that purple was my color, but after seeing several others wear it recently, I decided to give it a try. I also tested out the dye on a small section of hair underneath, before coloring my whole mane—which I always recommend. It just goes to show that you should never knock a trend until you try it…”

OK! Exclusive: What’s Lauren Conrad’s Drink of Choice?

LC has been vocal before about how she doesn’t think purple hair is for her and that she prefers temporary pink hair here and there, but looks like Lauren has changed her ways. Well, that, or is she’s just becoming a really, really good prankster. If only she had that prankster bone in her when she was feuding with Heidi Montag, you know?
