Kim Kardashian‘s platinum hair is probably the most buzzy thing to happen at Paris Fashion Week. The star paid a visit to a L’Atelier Blanc salon over the weekend to brighten — and lighten — her new shade. And of course her salon session would not have been complete without a selfie.

“It’s hard out here for a platinum pimp! Thank you @FredericMennetrier for touching up my blond,” Kim captioned the above photo on Instagram of herself mid-rinse. Our guess is celebrity colorist Frederic Mennetrier used a toner on the 34-year-old star’s hair and lightened her a bit more for a true platinum — almost white — hue.
Kim revealed to PEOPLE exclusively that her decision to dye her signature brunette tresses was inspired by a pop icon.
“I’ve always had this image of Madonna with platinum hair in my references folder on my computer and I’ve been waiting a long time to try the look,” she told PEOPLE. “I thought what better time than right now for Paris Fashion Week.”
And while we’re waiting for Madonna’s response to Kim’s new look, another platinum pop star shared her own feelings about the star’s hair — Miley Cyrus. The singer reposted a Photoshopped picture from her colorist (and dpHUE Creative Director) Justin Anderson, which shows Miley doing a crying Kim’s hair. (Beauty is pain, right?)
Do you like Kim’s updated color? Should she keep the platinum hue? Sound off below.
