Lauren Goodger and X Factor finalist Katie Waissel prove brunettes have more fun

Lauren Goodger is a new woman with her radical new hair colour.

She was spotted at Only Way Is Essex co-star Lydia Bright’s 21st birthday bash at London hot spot Gilgamesh this week sporting much darker locks.

Formerly a shade of honey-blonde, Lauren’s brunette do flatters her skin tone – giving her a sophisticated and sexy edge, while slimming her face.

Just before the TOWIE star-studded bash, Lauren, 25, was seen leaving swanky Kensington hair salon Tatiana’s where she had extensions added for extra volume.

Clearly a chocolate shade is a must-have as controversial former X Factor contestant Katie Waissel was seen rocking a very similar look to Lauren’s at the same party in London.
