Anyone who keeps up with Kim Kardashian&aposs go-to hairstylist, Chris Appleton, knows that he&aposs been experimenting with the star&aposs hair color all season long. For instance, in October, he dyed her hair "cold brew" brunette, which was significantly lighter than her usual nearly-noir hue. Then, less than a month later, she was wearing it a luscious shade of dark chocolate brown. Now, Appleton&aposs done it again, but this time around he went for a subtle ombré look that we haven&apost seen on Kim K. in ages.
The big reveal was posted on Appleton&aposs personal Instagram account and features the KKW Beauty founder looking regal with her new hair on display. "Who mastered the Cool Chocolate brown 🪐 this winter?" reads the photo&aposs caption. In addition to Kardashian&aposs hair being a bit lighter than before, you can also clearly tell that the color fades into a cool, medium-brown halfway down her hair.
As expected, fans are obsessed with the reality star&aposs new look and flooded the comments with messages like, "Love the ombré effect!!" and "Nailed it 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽." Additionally, it&aposs worth noting that some folks are saying Kardashian looks like her sister Kourtney in this photo (and they&aposre not wrong).
As for the ombré effect, it&aposs definitely an updated take on the time-tested hair-color trend, as it&aposs more on the subtle side and incredibly well-blended. What&aposs more: Considering Kendall Jenner recently went ombré, it&aposs definitely possible that Kardashian was inspired by her younger sister&aposs hair and wanted to experiment with the look, too.
Regardless of the reason, this just goes to show that the ombré hair-color trend is still going strong — even after all of these years.
