Kim Kardashian's Lighter Hair Is the Perfect Break-Up 'Do

kim kardashianA few days ago, Kim Kardashian tweeted a photo of herself with newly-brightened locks, along with the message: "I dyed my hair lighter yesterday! I'm loving it! New hair color=new beginnings for me." The change wasn't a drastic one for the reality star -- it appears she just added some honey-toned highlights -- but still, it really freshens up her look. And although I've always been partial to a dark-haired Kim, I've gotta admit, it totally suits her.

But what made her go from her famous raven tresses to a lighter, brighter style? Why, her divorce from Kris Humphries of course. Homegirl got herself a break-up 'do. And she couldn't have made a smarter move. Except, you know, maybe not getting married in the first place.

First of all, there's the fact that Kim got a break-up 'do period. I commend her for that in and of itself. Most celebs take part in much more detrimental behavior after going through a break-up. A simple change of color is nothing compared to what, say, Demi Moore or Lindsay Lohan did after getting out of relationships. Imagine if Demi just added some choppy layers after her break up with Ashton, or if Lindsay just cut some bangs when she and Samantha Ronson called it quits -- they'd both be in much better positions than they are now. And they'd look super cute.

And then there's the fact that Kim didn't go too drastic. You don't want to, in a fit of anger/sadness/rage/whatever, cut all your hair off, or go from platinum blonde to the blackest black. What Kim wanted was a pick me up -- sorry, a "new beginning" -- adding some subtle highlights was the perfect way to go about it. Sure, she'll probably get sick of them soon and go back to her darker hair, but when she decides that she wants to, really, it won't be that big of a deal.

And that's how you rock a break-up 'do, ladies. What.

Do you like Kim's new hair? Have you ever changed your hair after a break-up?

Are you contractually obligated to report on these people? Sheesh, enough already.

^Agreed...

Seriously, enough about Kim K. already. I don't give a @#@! about her failed marriage, what color her hair is, or what new line her ridiculous family has come out with. ENOUGH.

I actually like what she did. I'm not a big Kim K fan but you can't help seeing her everywhere. I like how her hair is still dark and dramatic, but not such a heavy color. 

Stacey. Stacey.

U realize they broke up 4 months ago right?

LOL get it right! Kim should not be compared to Demi as Kim was never in love. Yes, Demi didn't make good decisions in becoming self destructive vs changing her hair color but it is offensive to compare the two...

Uh, nut uh!  It was her constant need of attention.  Wake up people, it's been 94 days since her divorce was announced, which means we've suffered 22 days longer than Kris Humphries did with this vile woman!

Nobody is looking at her hair in that shot. Does she have to make her boobs the center of EVERYTHING!?

Is she referring to her nipple hair? Because this pic is totally all about her boobs, and her head hair doesn't look any different.
