For the last couple of years, you might as well call us the Backstreet Boys with the way Kylie Jenner has been playing games with our hearts. When she first started changing her hair into every hue under the sun, we would marvel over each new quick change before catching on to the fact that it was all just a magical wig illusion courtesy of her faux hair guru Tokyo Stylez. Even when we knew in our hearts it was too good to be true, some of her wigs styles were so good they still managed to fool us for the real deal. But this time, there can be no question about it, Kylie’s natural hair is now officially a light shade of honey blonde.

This whole multi-hour long endeavor kicked off on Sunday afternoon with the teen sharing a black and white snap of herself beginning the dye process, inspiring her fans to start speculating over what she could possibly be doing to freshen up her look for New York Fashion Week.

When she finally revealed the new shade, her hair had already been lightened beyond recognition to a very Kim K circa Paris Fashion Week 2015 platinum sheen. And the star kept her spirits up throughout this time-consuming ordeal by keeping her puppy Snapchat filter firmly in place and a plate of BBQ forever in front of her.

But the 19-year-old has always been a social media personality of the people, asking her followers to help her decide the precise shade of gold she should go for:

It seems the Lip Kit mogul was inspired by her eldest sister Kourtney’s revelation that she too once had a blond moment in her teens, sharing a throwback shot of herself on her website and app. Kylie reposted the pic late last week, captioning it simply “VIBES,” perhaps as a reminder to herself to bring it to her stylist later as hair inspo.

Although Kylie and her new look have yet to make their grand public debut, we’re already taking bets on how long this change will last, and already fearing for the fate of her extensive technicolor wig closet.
