But while her TOWIE counterparts (part and present) have been swapping their long hair for this season's must-have, shoulder-length bob, Lauren decided to keep her lengthy locks as they are.
Lauren visited her favourite hair extensions specialist, Tatiana Karelina at London's swanky Tatiana Hair Extensions to have her false pieces taken out yesterday.
"Today we removed @LaurenGoodger extensions," Tatiana tweeted. "3 years ago we extended short hair... NOW look at her thick healthy locks!"
Lauren showed off her new do on Twitter early in the evening, posting about how excited she was to be going 'au natural' (tan, lashes and lips aside!) ahead of the Big Chocolate Tea Party, a charity event in aid of The Sick Children's Trust, held at the Sanctum Soho hotel last night.
Seeing Lauren without her extensions is a rare event, but we rather like her slightly less voluminous do because, to be honest, it looks like she's got a pretty fine head of hair anyway!
It may not have the oomph and length of her extensions, but her real hair looks much shinier and we like the way she's styled it with soft waves through the ends.
We do, however, wonder how long she'll last and whether the big hair will be back in a flash.
With fellow The Only Way Is Essex ladies Sam Faiers, Billie Faiers and Ferne McCann upping the extensions factor with big hair for spring, Lauren could well be tempted back in a matter of days...
