Last year, she told PEOPLE that Kanye prefers her to go blonde. But Kim was hesitant at first. “He asked if I would ever go back to blonde. I was like, ‘Not right after a baby, because my face was so swollen and it looked like my lips were huge. My face was just off.’ “
Fast-forward to now, and it’s clear PEOPLE’s guest Beauty Editor has decided her face is on, because she’s blonder than ever. The 34-year-old star stepped out at the Balmain show with a bold, bright color, styling her strands in a sleek, swept-back style. And though we all know how much she loves to pull a hair prank (last summer she stepped out in a very convincing long blonde wig), this time, the bleached hue is the real deal, she shared on Instagram.
One thing Kim did not dye? Her brows. That’s because she’s spent a long time perfecting them.
“Eyebrows for me are always really important,” she shares in the latest issue of PEOPLE. “I didn’t know how much they shape your face and how different they make your face look. I met Anastasia [Soare] and she was just begging to do my brows and I was like ‘Eh, I don’t know,’ and after she did it changed my life. It literally looked so different. Generally I think that they have a good shape. I love where my eyebrows are going right now.”
As for other beauty secrets from the star, she reveals that she doesn’t wash her mane every day (she’s all about the dry conditioner from her Kardashian haircare line). She also wishes she was better at styling her own hair and could “curl it like the pros.”
