The budding mogul said: 'My hair takes seven hours, so sometimes we’ll order take out and drink champagne.'

Her explanation 'Well, I usually wear extensions!'

The blonde star also discussed her clothing lines, Paper Crown and LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, and her own personal style.

She said: 'There’s not one person that I say I want to look like. When we’re pulling up photos for inspiration, we tend to pull photos from years and years ago.

'We’re more likely to pull a photo of Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot as opposed to something off a website from today.'

She describes her mom as a 'great bargain hunter,' which she says influenced her style heavily.

'I love [that] it kind of taught me how
to dress high and low,' she said.

'I love wearing designer pieces with something I
found at Target. But I recently splurged on a Goyard leather carry on.
You don’t have to check it, and you can wear it at the airport with a
T-shirt and jeans and it still looks great because it pulls the whole
outfit together!'

Miss Conrad, who is also writing a new fictional book, and recently launched a website, says she 'been very fortunate' in her career.

She explained: 'There’s not a business or a master plan as far as I’m concerned. I take it week by week, and I don’t think you ever expect to be able to do the next thing.

'At the moment, I think we’re really lucky. I get to do a lot of things that I really love. I work really hard, and it’s important I enjoy doing all of them.'
