Everyone knows blondes have more fun—including Audrina Patridge!

The former Hills star was all smiles Thursday, Nov. 7, as she stepped out of the Andy LeCompte Salon in West Hollywood, Calif., sporting lighter, brighter locks. And judging from Audrina's expression, this California girl is not missing brunette life one bit!

This isn't the first time Audrina, 28, has played around with different hues. She's also had dark brown locks, reddish highlights and more variations of the ombré look that we can count. So in order to avoid frying-her-hair-and-wanting-to-cut-it à la Jennifer Lawrence, Audrina makes sure not to be too tough on her tresses all the time.

In a 2011 interview with Shape magazine, the reality star revealed she only washes her hair twice a week and uses dry shampoo in between. As for any pesky flyaways that might decide to pop up? She applies a little Moroccan Oil to her ends, explaining, "It smells really wonderful, and I have less breakage when I comb my hair."

Hey, whatever she's doing clearly works, because regardless of your Hills loyalties, Audrina's hair always looks healthy!
