kim kardashian blond selfieLove 'er or hate 'er, I've always appreciated that Kim Kardashian's a petite, curvy, olive-skinned brunette who has made all of those attributes hotter than before. But wait. Nowadays, she's no brunette!

It was just a few days ago when Kim abandoned her signature dark hair for new "caramel"-hued locks, but it feels like it has been forever since we've seen her natural strands. Maybe that's because ever since the dye job, she's been snapping selfies and Keeking away to show off her new blond mane. By now, you've probably seen this blurry snapshot (right) and the Keek showcasing her lighter tresses, right?

I don't know about you, but the more I see this blond 'do, I feel like it is a total DON'T. Kim's stylist George Papanikolas recently spoke to Us magazine about what on earth they were thinking (!?!) when she hopped the express to Goldilocks Town ...

Papanikolas divulged that Kim had been wanting to make a "big change" for a while. He admitted, "It was Kim's idea to go blonde, but everyone around her had some influence, including myself." And the two of 'em looked through pictures together to come up with the ideal way to take her brunette locks to the Barbie side. Papanikolas said:

[It's] the best way to communicate hair color. That way we were able to come to an agreement of a blonde that is realistic considering her natural hair color, and would be the most flattering to her skin tone.

While I dig that "realistic considering her natural hair color" was what he was going for, it looks like anything but! From what we've seen, it looks like one step away from a wig or a peroxide bottle gone rogue ... I can certainly understand a woman needing a change or a mommy makeover, but when you don't look like yourself, chances are you might not feel like yourself either. Hence why I wouldn't be surprised if Kim ends up back to brunette sooner rather than later!

How long would you wager Kim's blond hair lasts? Are you a fan?
