Kim Kardashian's Drastic New Hairstyle Is Quite the Shift

Kim Kardashian is a lot of things -- savvy, beautiful, a great mom and businesswoman -- but apparently truthful is not among these things. Recently, Kim stepped out with platinum blond hair that's down to her waist, and, for whatever reason, she's insisting it's real. Um, technically speaking, no it's not. 


Making an appearance at New York Fashion Week on Thursday night, Kim stunned in a skintight latex-looking dress and a shocking new hairstyle. Initially, everyone assumed that the hair was a wig -- and rightfully so, as Kim has been known to rock wigs in her day -- but evidently it's the real deal. Well, some of it.

On her website, Kim revealed that she'd been contemplating changing her locks for a while now. "I've been talking about going blonde again for a long time, and I'm so happy I did! I know a lot of people initially thought I was wearing a wig, but it's my real hair," she said. "My amazing stylist, Chris Appleton, dyed my hair and got it to the most perfect platinum, silvery-white color."

Kim looks like a sexy mermaid, and, with the risk of stirring anything up, a little bit like Kylie Jenner, who has rocked this color many times before.

Overall, the process took a looong time to complete -- long as in 17 hours. "I was so scared that my hair would get ruined. It took about 12 hours for the first round of dyeing my hair -- we definitely took our time with it so it wouldn't get damaged," Kim said. "Then, we did another 5-hour session. In the end, so worth it."

It's a little surprising that Kim went all-in on this hair color, being that she's known for her dark locks. But hey, sometimes you just have to go big. 

And for the record, while this technically may be Kim's hair, those are definitely some extensions in there. So it's a little of both. Just sayin', Kim. Just sayin'
