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 really like the lighter shade on her! It compliments her skin tone, and doesn’t look like the shade is too damaging for her naturally dark tresses.

Cuddy on

She looks more “exotic” with darker hair, now she just blends in with everyone else!

Carolyn on

While the new shade is nice, I think she should stick with her natural color.

Alicia on

I think it makes her look softer, more natural. Which I think will be nice for her wedding.

I like the darker shade better, the new color kind of washes out her skin tone

Monique on

I thought she got her haircut? Does she have extensions now? What’s the point of cutting your hair and then getting extensions? I do like the chocolate color though!

Gail on

I saw a picture of hair with the new color. I think her natural hair color looks best.

This browner color makes her hair look dry and brittle; It looks like her hair needs to be conditioned.

I think it sounds so insipid when magazines use other words for hair like “locks” or “strands”…can you imagine speaking like that in real life???
and by the way, who cares what she does to her hair???? I cannot believe this is considered style news. There are couture shows going on but here in the US we worry about what this moron does to her hair??

Misha on

I agree that the darker shade gave her a more exotic appearance, but the lighter color gives her a fresh and brighter look.
