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?

I like the lighter color, it looks more natural on her. Although I think she’s pretty anyway! :)

Why is it ok for her to lighten but not Chole to go red. They forced her to return to dark b/c it would ruin the Kardashian brand. Crazy huh?!

Red on

Wow!What a great change and the new look is awsome!

I like her hair both ways. I agree that the dark hair is much more exotic, but this new shade is fresh and brightened up for summer. Pretty!

why does anyone care about this? Its just Kim Kardashian, why don’t we see bigger stories than a hair change…there’s more important things going on in America than her hair, and what color her fingernails are and how “real” her assets are!

Not as harsh as bold black-its great color-not blonde but more carmely-love it-gives her skin a glow

Really who cares what that moron does with her hair. It doesnt deserve an article written about it.
