As previously documented, reported, analyzed and critiqued at length online, Jinger Duggar has gone blonde.

How does the young reality star look with this fresh hairdo, color and style? Here. Take a look for yourself:

A beachy look for the newfound L.A. resident. You dig?

While social media opinions appear to be mixed, there’s evidently at least one obsessed person out there who is fangirling out after Jinger seriously upped her game by lightening her locks …

… and that person is Lauren Duggar.

“Many of you are wondering if I went blonde!” Lauren captioned the above photo on her Instagram Story, adding:

"I think this filter makes it look more blonde than what it is, but it’s just more of an ash toned balayage.”

Ah, yes. An ash toned balayage. Classic.

Whether or not Lauren looks good with her new hairdo is up to social media users to decide – but there’s one aspect of this update that many are in agreeance on:

The change was made shortly after Jinger freshed up her look.

And that ain’t no coincidence!

"She just couldn’t let Jinger have balayage, could she??" reads the headline of one critical Reddit page about Lauren’s hair.

"does lauren have any originality? first copying josie balka now copying jinger," someone else on this same thread noted.

Another troll, meanwhile, referenced Lauren’s "porn face," to which a respondent mentioned Josiah’s alleged homosexuality:

[This]  is exactly why she was chosen for Josiah.

No matter his sexuality he needed to be reigned [sic] in, so they gifted him a wife who was most likely (in their twisted minds) to keep him in line.

A breathy and conventionally attractive virgin who crows on about "the Lord."

Holy insanity, right?

We know the World Wide Web can be an insane, dangerous place, but the level of insanity never ceases to amaze.

Back to reality, this isn’t the first time Lauren has been accused of trying to copy the style of a fellow reality star.

There are a bunch of folks out there who think she also wants to be like Josie Bates of Bringing Up Bates fame.

Obviously, at the end of the day, we have no idea what’s going on inside of the former Lauren Swanson’s head.

But we do know the facts, and they do make you think. She’s 20 years old and she’s already a mother.

According to some rumors, she’s miserable in her marriage and feels rather lost in life. That might sound crazy, but …

Already tied down at such a young age and possibly regretting her decision to join such a strict and cult-like family?

We can’t confirm it. But we can kind of see it.

Watch Counting On!

So… if she is looking for guidance from others she knows?

If she is trying to find her way by emulating a seemingly successful and satisfied young Duggar wife and mother?

Whatever. Do whatever you need to do, Lauren.
