Kim Kardashian dyes her hair silvery platinum blonde just in time for NYFW

Kim Kardashian has become a chameleon when it comes to her style, her beauty looks, but most importantly, her hair. The KKW Beauty founder changes her hair up so much and so often that once you start to get used to her looking a certain way, she debuts a brand-new style. 

When she first burst onto the scene, she was known for her gorgeous, long brunette hair with dramatic waves that many women tried to emulate. Since then, she has stepped away from her comfort zone and added wigs, weaves, hair extensions, and plenty of colors into her hair routine. Kim has even sparked a bit of controversy with her hair choices, and some people have called her out on cultural appropriation for wearing styles like cornrows and braids. However, Kim has ignored the critics and continued wearing her hair however she pleases.

Kim's longtime hairstylist, Chris Appleton, has been in charge of producing many of her jaw-dropping hairstyles. For New York Fashion Week in September 2017, Kim debuted a new hair color, and it set the tone for how she'd style it for the rest of 2018. To make it edgier, they went for more of a silvery white blonde shade that made Kim look beyond badass.

The reality star really loves to switch up her hair looks, and when she does, it gets everyone talking. Here's a look at some of her best--and sometimes controversial--hair moments over the years.

Kim debuted a blunt short bob in May 2019. 1

We've grown accustomed to seeing Kim with long, dark hair extensions through the years. When she shared videos using Snapchat filters to show off her new haircut, some fans were shocked to see how short her hair actually is. But with the magic of extensions, she'll be back to having hair down to her waist in no time.


Kim shared some gorgeous photos from her wedding. 2

For her and husband Kanye West's fifth wedding anniversary in May 2019, Kim celebrated by sharing some never-before-seen pics from their special day. It reminded us just how stunning and classic her hairstyle was and how beautiful she looked as a bride.

The KKW Beauty founder took the wet-hair look on the biggest fashion red carpet of the year. Her look was meant to make it appear as if she were coming out of water, and she totally nailed it.

Kim wore this short bob, and it looked a bit unusual. 4

Not sure if it's the sunglasses or the outfit, but this hairstyle is giving us some strong Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory vibes. 


This updo is everything. 5

The messiness of this updo makes it perfect for the stunning Thierry Mugler gown she wore in March 2019. We love that strand of hair in front of her face. She really looked amazing.


Kim shared this clip of herself with her new look and it was fire! 6

She was spotted leaving a photo shoot at Milk Studios in Los Angeles wearing red latex pants, a matching top, and fiery red hair. We definitely dig this look on her.


Kim slicked down her baby hairs. 7

Women of color have been doing this for decades, and now it's "trendy." Kim wore her hair in a tight middle-part ponytail, and her baby hairs were gelled down by her sideburns.

This look reminds us of Jennifer Aniston on Friends. We love the two strands in the front. It is definitely flattering on Kim.


Kim showed off some "futuristic" braids from one of her shoots. 9

Her hairstylist Chris Appleton shared this clip of her wearing some long silver braids for a KKW Beauty shoot, and, well, it seems like she doesn't even care about the backlash anymore.

Something about this look just didn't work. 10

While she received tons of criticism for this dress, the bun doesn't really work for us either. It might be pulled back way too tight, and the small bun in the back almost makes it look like she has no hair at all.


We've seen Kim with bangs before, but these are intense. 11

Kim looked ravishing in the photos taken by photographer Greg Swales for her red lipstick line for KKW Beauty. The bangs perfectly frame her face and highlight her beautiful brown eyes.

Her hair also causes controversy. 12

Fans have accused Kim of cultural appropriation in the past when she's been spotted wearing braids and cornrows. The criticism hasn't stopped the reality star from doing so, and she sported long silver braids for one of her makeup campaigns in September 2018.


Kim wore a gorgeous high half-up, half-down style. 13

Her hair is tied so tight we wouldn't be surprised if she had a major headache at the end of this night. She accesorized her pony with a shiny hair tie, looking super glamorous and youthful.

Kim has gone for a simpler approach with her hair in 2019. 14

She has been wearing her long black hair in loose beach waves. She started sporting the look at the end of 2018 and carried it into 2019.


This high ponytail is giving us major '90s supermodel vibes. 15

This whole look was one of Kim's most memorable in 2018, and the high-pony trend definitely works on the makeup mogul.

This simple bun is definitely something worth re-creating at home. 16

We love how her bangs are split down the center to create this timeless bun. This hairstyle works for just about any occassion, including work, a girls' night out, or a wedding.

This perfectly straight bob is everything. 18

Her hair looked so healthy and shiny in this stylish bob she wore during an outing with her beau.


Kim totally loves the wet hair look. 19

One of the first times she sported the hairstyle was at the 2016 Video Music Awards, and she hasn't stopped since. She wore it this way for sister Kylie Jenner's 21st birthday party, and it looked so sexy!

As much as we love this high ponytail, we can't help but wonder how much it hurt. 20

She wore her hair this way for the launch of her KKW X MARIO makeup collection in April 2018, and it was fierce.


Kim rocked hot pink hair during a trip to Japan with her sisters. 21

The mom of three looked super trendy in the bright hair color and paired it with some futuristic clothes designed by husband Kanye West.

She was slammed for renaming cornrows. 22

She wore her hair in tight braids and instead of calling them by their proper name, she called the style "Bo Derek" braids based on the actress who wore the same braids in the 1979 film 10.


Kim even shared with fans how she gets the color out of her hair. 23

She went from hot pink to a lighter pastel shade with the help of vitamins! She shared this pic in March 2018, and captioned it: "Hair Hack- I crushed up vitamin C and mixed it with shampoo to get the pink color out."

Kim's platinum bob definitely screams 'I'm rich!' 24

For another of her makeup campaigns, she debuted a chic platinum bob haircut that matched mom Kris Jenner's color. Even if this is a wig, we can't help but stare at how perfectly straight and clean cut her hair is.


She kicked off 2018 with a short silver haircut. 25

On a closer look, the hair looks more gray, and it might be foreshadowing how Kim will look in the future.

This hair color seemed to be her favorite in 2018. 26

The off-white hair color with dark roots seemed to be a Kim favorite. She wore it in loose, long waves in February 2018.


Kim dressed up as Selena Quintanilla for Halloween and received mixed reactions. 27

While some people were upset that she dressed up as our Tejano queen, others thought she looked fantastic in the costume. Her wig here is so spot on, but maybe more so as Jennifer Lopez dressed up as Selena for the biopic?

She was sporting butt-length hair for a while. 32

Kim was sporting "Cher hair" for what seemed like forever. It was always worn sleek straight and parted in the middle.
