Kim Kardashian Goes Back to Brunette

Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of herself this week. And everything about the photo is classic Kim Kardashian — right down to her signature open-mouthed duckface (perfected over the course of thousands of selfies) and rich brunette hair color. But no, this isn’t a Throwback Thursday picture. The star has ditched her Vogue-inspired blonde strands to return to her roots, so to speak.

The reality star has sported a heavily highlighted blonde hairdo, with dark roots and under-layer, over the past five months. However, it’s received mixed reactions from PEOPLE commenters. Some liked her lighter, brighter hairstyle, while others felt it changed her overall look too much. That skeptical fan reaction may be why Kardashian captioned her Saturday Instagram selfie “I’m back.”

She’s still not quite back to the super-dark brunette she was wearing about a year ago. Her new color is still honey-tinged, with a slight ombré effect. But it still should be a big enough change to make Kardashian hair purists happy. Don’t get too comfortable though. When a fan asked her on Twitter Saturday if she’d return to blonde in the future, she responded “Absolutely! I loved it!”

Are you glad she’s back to brunette? Tell us in the comments!

Thank you. Thank you, People Magazine, for sharing this life-altering news. I don’t know what I’d do without you.

This article is no better or worse than most of the stuff People mag passes off as news, so it doesn’t bother me that it’s not earth-shattering information. In all fairness, and whether you like her or not, you cannot deny that she is beautiful. Stunning even.

If the exact same thing had been written about Selena Gomez or P!nk, you guys would be all sunshine and roses. Double standards when Kim is just as harmless and pretty.

OK, give us the REAL “skinny”. How much plastic surgery and botox has this wanna be home girl had? No muscle in her face moves. Hair color..who cares.

Oh joy. This person is “back to brunette” and aniston is wearing extensions again. Don’t know if I can contain my glee knowing this extraordinary and earth shattering news.
