About ten years ago, Kim Kardashian become part of the celebrity and fashion world, quickly becoming a pioneer in starting new trends. She has invaded social media and the Internet with some of her best outfits and hairstyles. Many of her fans have tried to imitate her hairstyles.
From being a reality celebrity to becoming a trendsetter, everyone wants to imitate her effortless and undeniable elegance, style and beauty. She has on more than one occasion radically changed her hair color from stark black to a platinum white in a blink of our eyes. Kim changes looks often and each one is as different as night and day, with the help of using hair extensions, hairpieces or wigs.
Each look has started a huge trend on social media, followed by bloggers or ‘YouTubers’, placing ‘how-to-do it your self’ tutorials online, to obtain Kim’s flawless and innovating hairstyles. One of her most popular trends that had the most ‘likes’ on Instagram recently and YouTube, were her famous braids that she has been wearing lately. This caused frenzy online for an endless supply of ‘how-to’ videos on YouTube for braiding your own braids and applying your makeup just like hers.
In the beginning, Kim Kardashian was known for her dark chestnut brown hair, with wavy colors that slowly turned into an extra-large bob that showed off her shiny dark hair. But after a short time period, this celebrity began to cut her hair to show off her bob with wavy curls that marked the beginning of this new trend on Pinterest and Instagram.
From a blond bob to extremely straight hair
Many have asked what is this celebrity’s secret to mantaining such healthy hair with constantly changing the color, such as was the case when she appeared in the music video “Milf Money” with her good friend Fergie that showed Kim with a blondish-whitish hair cut. She uses eucalyptus essential oil for hair (it’s not a secret), but the simple answer is: thanks to the help of line of wigs, hairpieces and extensions called Kylie Hair Kouture, designed by her sister Kylie Jenner.
During the last few months, some of this celebrity’s changes have become more daring and bolder for special events, such as the case when she hit Tim Ford’s runway for fashion week. Kim showed off a khaleesi style that left onlookers with open mouths when they saw her blonde hair that could almost be called platinum colored. Her main stylist, Chris Appleton remarked when he saw her, “Looking very sexy on Kim”.
How can we forget the time when her Instagram account hit more than 64 million followers when she shared a picture of herself with a shorter bob and with the tips of her hair dyed a lighter tone, giving her hairstyle a slightly worn look. This became known as the ombre style, which from that point on caused a sensation online, generating thousands of DIY videos. (DIY: Do it yourself)
Kim’s constant changes to her hairstyles have landed her the nickname of the woman with a thousand hairstyles. But for this new season of “KUWTK”, it looks like Miss Kardashian is finally bored of bobs and changing her hair colors. She once again is surprising her fans with her new look for something lighter and youthful that is the new upcoming trendsetter, for a short bob that is extremely straight.
This new variation was developed by her stylist, who is willing take the blame if the style fails terribly or the applause if a success when received under the eye of the public. Chris has always been Kim’s main hairstylist and she has never once doubted his talents and never belated in posting her new looks online. The same goes for this new look, no sooner than she was finished; it was already posted online for the world to see.
This Californian has not varied but that can’t stop us from asking ourselves: Will this be her final look? Or how long will this new trend last for this time? To find out the answers to these questions, we will only need to keep following Kim on social media and just watch and see what new styles she has up her sleeves.
