Kim Kardashian is as famous for her lush raven locks as she is for her curves. but she recently decided to change her tresses — at least temporarily. Her colorist, Rebecca Friedman, co-owner of L.A.’s Goodform Salon, tells PEOPLE, “She wanted to go lighter and brighter for summer.” Not that she got in and out of the salon in a minute, as Friedman explains, “It took about three hours to do varied tones of highlights, plus a glaze for shine.” And what does Kardashian think of her newly lightened look? “She loves it,” the stylist says. “It gives her hair more dimension.” Want to give highlights a try? Friedman has a tip for anyone else who’s thinking of lightening her locks for the warmer months: “Don’t go more than two levels lighter and if you want to do highlights, especially if you have previously colored hair. Definitely leave it to a professional.” Tell us: Do you change your hair color in the summer months? Reporting by Marisa Laudadio

It would be great if Kim’s stylist could just be honest–Kim wears a head full of extensions. Her natural hair is quite thin. Some extensions are okay, but as you can see in the picture on the left, too many extensions look really fake.

A colorist is different from a stylist, first of all. The color is what they’re referring to, and the color looks awesome! To get to where Kim is now from where she was takes a lot of talent and work, which clearly is evident to be amazing work by a very talented colorist.
