Splash

Kim Kardashian has become a chameleon when it comes to her style, her beauty looks but most importantly, with 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 look. 

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. 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 hair changes. 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 2018. To make it edgier, they went for more of a silvery white blonde shade that makes 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.
