Kim Kardashian debuts blond ‘Cindy Crawford-esque’ hair
Kim Kardashian has some blond ambition, circa 1980-something. The new mom has dyed her hair a lighter hue.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star debuted the shorter, layered look over Labor Day weekend when she was photographed going to a friend’s barbecue in Beverly Hills. A concealed baby North was in tow, and the new mom was followed closely by elder sister Kourtney Kardashian, according to E! News.
The new ‘do is golden toward the ends, a bit darker toward the roots and totally Kanye-approved, according to Kardashian’s hair squad.
“He loves it. He was a big cheerleader for her to go blond,” her colorist George Papanikolas said.
Kardashian, 32, has kept a low profile since the June 15 birth of her daughter with Kanye West, but has expressed desires (via her reality show) that she wants to be “cool again.”
The brunet fashionista has experimented with lighter tresses in the past. In 2009 and 2012, she went lighter. About five months ago, while she was still pregnant, she posted a throwback photo on Instagram stating that she was, “Missing my blonde.”
Apparently, Kardashian has been wanting to lighten up for a long time.
“I brought up her length and layered it around her face to grow her bangs out,” her stylist Chris McMilian told E! “The swooped up-and-over bang is kind of what we’re doing with her too -- very ‘80s-ish. It’s a bit asymmetrical [and] Cindy Crawford-esque. The color only helps make that more amazing.”
And perhaps another way to distract people from her baby weight?
