Kim Kardashian Reveals Which Hair Color Kanye West Likes Best

08/08/2014 at 04:23 PM ET

She’s proven to be quite the chameleon when it comes to style and beauty, but one thing Kim Kardashian West is sure about is the color hair her husband Kanye West prefers.

“Kanye likes the blonde,” Kardashian told PEOPLE while at ULTA Beauty’s new Los Angeles store where she celebrated Kardashian Sun Kissed, her sunless tanning system developed with sisters Kourtney and Khloé. “But I think I’m going to stay dark,” says the 33-year-old mom. At least for now.

“I was talking about this yesterday actually with Kanye. He asked if I would ever go back to blonde,” she says. “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.'”

But that doesn’t mean the reality mogul is afraid to have more fun as a blonde, she just won’t be making it permanent anytime soon. “After I saw [me blonde] it was definitely fun, but then I thought that I can just wear a wig if I really have the urge. It was so easy.” (Pro Kim hair watchers know that she has worn a wig before, playing a prank on everyone back in June with her lighter shade.)

One thing Kardashian wasn’t afraid to try out consistently after the birth of her daughter North West, now 14 months, was sunless tanner.

“I try and put it on once a week,” she says of the product. “You look so healthy and thinner when you are tan. But you have to exfoliate and we have a tan extender to make sure your tan lasts as long as possible.”

While sisters Kourtney and Khloé both love a good head-to-toe bronzed look, Kim says she’s the pro.

“Kourtney is naturally darker than us, but isn’t as even so she uses it more to even out her skin tone,” Kim explains. “Khloé just needs a tan at all times, she is so white. I just care more about the glow!”

Not but favorite person in the world but can’t deny her beauty (physically) . With her coloring and skin tone, I don’t like the blond on her. She looks better as a brunette, IMO.

‘You look so healthy and thinner when you are tan.’ But skin cancer isn’t so pretty. I’ll keep my lily white skin thank you very much.

My first thought with the headline was that KW will, of course, like the blonde. Makes KKW more white.

Is this seriously in People news?? Give me a break.

WHO CARES??? I canceled my subscription to People because of all the “press” given to people like the Kardashians, especially Kim. She is self absorbed. If she did not wear clothes where her boobs are always popping out…she would look like any other woman. Because she wears skin tight clothes with everything hanging out, that is the only reason she gets attention. What man would want his wife parading around like that? Please…let the trash magazines cover her.

Seriously does the family pay you to write about them? Do you know most people think they are trash and the a-listers don’t want anything to do with them right?

Why would he not say he likes her natural brown haired beauty instead of her hairdyed look?…maybe it’s just me, but I find it strange….
