Kristin Ess, who has been charged with the care and keeping of the reality star's beachy-blonde locks, posted such a picture to her feed over the weekend. The image is of back of the head of a woman who looks suspiciously like Conrad, but it is simply captioned "Bye."
The woman in the photo is holding up her chopped-off ponytail, and it's the same length and color as Conrad's -- or at least used to be.
Still, Conrad hasn't said a word, and Ess later commented "#notlauren #sorryguys" on the image.
Seems like it's much ado about nothing.
