Kim Kardashian is as known for her long brunette locks as she is for her enviable curves, but today she hit the streets of N.Y.C. with dramatically lighter hair! The reality star had taken to her Twitter page earlier in the day hinting at the hair color change, writing “Hey everyone I have a drastic new look! I’m gonna twitpic it later today!” And several hours later, a photo did appear as promised with a new note, “I WENT BLONDE!!!! Do u like it?” So help Kim out and let her know what you think of her newly lightened do. UPDATE: Kim took her to her blog later to reveal that the new look is just a wig, but she’s contemplating the change! She writes, “I did a fabulous photo shoot this weekend and they put this hair piece on! I haven’t taken it off since, because I’m really loving the look.” Do you think she should go for it? Tell us: Do you love Kim’s new look or hate it?

She still looks beautiful but not as striking, which was her signature look.

I definitely wouldn’t call that blonde–it’s brown with highlights. Either way, she looks better with dark hair.

Hate it! She looks so average. The dark makes her features pop. Now she looks overweight with a really bad highlighting job.

Hate it girl you look so sleek and sophisticated with you dark hair. It just doesn’t fit you profile. Lately I myself a natural brunette that used to where my hair blondish went back to my dark hair, in the end you’ll see you feel better in your own skin and hair color… your skin color just doesn’t match it look at your sisters and your mom they r gorgeous as is and once you get over this phase you go back…. good luck, Nettie ~~~ NorCAL

She looks better with dark hair. Plus she needs to apologize to Miss California for insulting her about her answer to Perez Hilton.

I think Kim is gorgeous, and I can completely understand wanting to change your look every now and then..I just like her better a Brunette. It suits her so much better.

I agree with Erin, she is a dark exotic beauty, but we all want to see ourselves with another color, so she’s done it, bet she doesn’t do it again.. And she now does look like J-Lo.


I am sorry but Kim looks beautiful with black hair. Honestly I though she was beyonce. She looks ok.

I absolutely hate this look on her. Seems like she’s trying to hard. She’s so beautiful and exotic with the dark hair, there’s really no need to change it.

Liz on

I love it for a summer change!
