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!

Wow another nothing, self absorbed, Instagram from KK….I didn’t even read the so called “article” I’m sick of everyday she’s instagraming & it shows up on People!

Kim is back to being a brunette and People magazine has stooped to an incredibly pathetic low for even reporting this rubbish in the first place.
