Kim Kardashian is back to brunette after spending half of 2022 as a blonde—but daughter North West captured Kardashian at a pit stop while transitioning back to her signature dark hair hue in a TikTok posted to their joint account on Christmas Eve.
Kardashian appears on her bed with her natural hair wet and down straight on a side part. It’s the first look the family has given in months of what Kardashian’s real hair length is, as the star often wears extensions.
On Christmas Eve night, Kardashian was out in extensions again at mom Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve party. Kardashian wore a silver Versace one-shoulder column gown.
Kardashian admitted publicly in her September Interview profile that her blonde hair was temporary. She debuted the lighter locks at the 2022 Met Gala in May while infamously wearing Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress on the red carpet before switching into a replica.
“I am keeping it for a little bit,” she said of the lighter hair to Interview magazine. “I feel like in the fall I’ll go dark, just because I don’t want to damage my hair. But, I do think blondes have more fun. I just feel different.”
She also addressed her standpoint on fashion to the outlet and trusting her own judgement calls with what to wear and what not to wear.
“I trust myself in the sense of, I know what looks good, and I know what makes me feel really uncomfortable,” she said. “But, every once in a while, someone will be like, ‘Trust me. This looks good.‘ Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t, and you just have to roll with it. It’s not that serious. I care a lot, but I also can’t let it consume me. Sometimes there’s bad angles, bad lighting. You can’t control it all.”
