Kim Kardashian Hair Color
Dave Proctor/Startraks, Ramey

Bye bye, dark brown! Kim Kardashian recently traded in her nearly black hair for a much lighter chocolate brown shade. “I dyed my hair light for the summer,” she Tweeted last week. “I’m loving it! I feel younger!” Though the fruits — er, roots — of her labor weren’t visible in the accompanying TwitPics, when she stepped out for a meeting in Studio City, Calif., on Thursday, her lightened locks were quite noticeable. The reality star’s last major hair change came in March when she sported Bo Derek-inspired braids during a music video shoot, but she has played with her hair color before, going blonde in 2009 (sister Khloé went red briefly this winter, too). The bride-to-be made the change just in time for the holiday weekend, which she spent with fiancé Kris Humphries in his hometown of Minnetonka, Minn. Tell us: Do you like Kardashian’s lightened look?

Anything is better than the black. Black hair tends to be too harsh looking on people, plus this gives her a little more indivuality since her mom (who really should give up black hair at her age) and her sisters are all with dark to black hair.

Lighter locks make her look ordinary, dark hair is striking, sexy–she is definitely not ordinary with her dramatic looks in dark hair.

Yuk….! Why is it that so many brunettes want to go blonde…? Especially considering the age old phrase of “dumb blonde”… Her dark hair made her strikingly beautiful, but now she is like ever brunette that is a blonde wannabe…! Sorry Kim…!

Who cares!!

I think the color looks fine on her, it doesn’t really make her look better or worse. I really think she needs to change her makeup routine, though. She always wears so much makeup which is what I think makes her look older not her hair color.

I think it makes her look like Jennifer Lopez. I agree that the color is nice, but it’s not her.
