Behind the Scenes of Kristin Cavallari’s MAJOR Hair Transformation

Word that Kristin Cavallari was considering making a drastic change to her California beach babe tresses came to us a few weeks ago—and the news spread like wildfire through the Byrdie offices. The TV personality, designer, and mother of two loveable little boys (we can attest—she showed us pictures) has been sporting long locks for years. “I just wanted something new—something that was a bit edgier. It was just long and blonde, and I wanted something fresh and fun,” Cavallari told us just moments after the big reveal.

The only way to make a major change is in the hands of renowned talents like Chris McMillan (the man behind the haircut that solidified Jennifer Aniston’s stardom and countless other superstar manes) and Justin Anderson (the creative director of dpHUE and celebrity colourist who’s been painting Hollywood blondes from Kim Basinger to Miley Cyrus). With the dream team in place, we headed over to The Chris McMillan Salon to document Cavallari’s transformation from start to finish.
