Kim Kardashian Explains Why She Went Pink, Reveals Which Family Members 'Love It'
The star explains her brand new pink hair (and tells us what North and Kanye think of it)
After announcing that she was “over” her blonde locks, Kim Kardashian West made a drastic hair change over the weekend, trading her platinum strands for a bright pink new hairdo. But turns out the change-up wasn’t as spur-of-the-moment as it may have seemed.
“Ever since I did the CR Fashion Book shoot and wore a pink wig, I thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink,” Kim revealed in a new blog post on her website, kimkardashianwest.com.
The photoshoot she was referring to was the 1999-themed CR Fashion Book Issue 11 shoot in which she channeled icons such as Lil’ Kim and Pamela Anderson, donning a rose-colored wig for some of the shots.
After mulling it over for a while, she finally decided that now was the perfect time for the change. “Chris Appleton and I thought about it for a month and then decided to just go for it,” she wrote. “Since my hair is blond right now, it was easy to put the pink color over it. I figured now was the perfect timing!” (It also was the perfect canvas against which to set Yeezy Season 7, which she’s already modeling for her husband Kanye West on a trip to Tokyo.)
And some of her family members were just as excited as Kim about the switch-up. “North absolutely loves it,” Kim shared. “She was so excited when she woke up to see I had pink hair. Kanye loves it, too. He thinks it’s fun to mix things up.” (She previously revealed that Kanye is partial to her as a blonde, so it’s good to know he embraces change.)

Before you get too attached to her pretty pink strands, the star says it may only last a week or two, but Appleton shared a few tips to get the look yourself, including how to make the color last.
You also should avoid over-washing the hair and use a sulfate-free shampoo (Color Wow Security Shampoo) when you do to keep the color from being stripped.
As for pulling off the bold hue? He says to try it out with a wig first and to “tone down or amp up your makeup, as your hair will do a lot of talking.”
