In honor of the 18-year-old Keeping up With the Kardashians star going back to her natural, dark roots with a blunt cut (and then subsequently covering the ‘do once more with wigs), let’s take a look back at the many hairstyles of the youngest Kardashian-Jenner gal.
The obsession with Kylie’s mane really started when she kicked off not just her love for hair transformations but a reboot of the popular dip-dye trend with this gorgeous turquoise hue. The first time around, Kylie did actually did use dye, but she later revisited the color by way of hair extensions and wigs, most notably at Coachella. Aside from her natural color (when she shows it), this teal tone was her longest-lasting look, and by far, our favorite.
Who can argue with this look? It’s just a slightly enhanced version of Kylie’s natural strands, and it’s gorgeous.
This pastel hue came courtesy of Tokyo Stylez, a hair stylist she loves leaning on for her ever-changing strands. The mint shade was all in the name of “having fun” for a Sugar Factory opening last month in New York City, as Kylie described the long locks on Instagram.
It looked like we were going to see Kylie rock ashy blonde hair all fall long, but this hue only lasted a couple of short weeks, despite all the work she says she put into it. “Took months of not dying my hair and wearing wigs to get my hair back to health so I can do this!!” she wrote on Instagram on Sept. 1. “Thank you @priscillavalles @maishaoliver for putting up with me all day. I'm going for an ashy dirty blonde for the fall. But this sh*ts a process! I'm coming for u khloé!”
What’s so special about this cut? Nothing, and that’s why we love it. It’s Kylie’s hair with a few extra inches, and it got smoothed down with a straightening iron. Pretty and simple!
Icy Blue ‘Do
If you look up (try, please) you’ll notice a shorter pastel wig that Kylie tried on for size. The longer iteration of this hue actually stayed around for a few days, and it’s a fun look for the summer since it makes tan skin like the KUWTK star’s pop.
This is the first time we looked at a hue that could have been natural and finally thought, ‘A-ha! That hairline! It is a wig.’ We rejoiced in some skilled detective work and then moved on with our day.
Major points for not only trying out a blue hue again -- which really complements the reality star -- but also for rocking the daring cut so well.
If there’s any day to try out a brand new look, it’s your 18th birthday -- and that’s exactly what Kylie did for her first celebration in a week full of them. The strands are fun and the perfect length for the now-young adult, but, like the locks above, still quite clearly fake.
This cut leaned more towards grown-out roots than the intended, gradual look of ombré, which was actually pretty common among stars and lay people alike last year.
The then-17-year-old reality star Instagrammed that she was “missing the grey,” which she originally debuted for Halloween 2014.
Please don’t do this again, Kylie. Wait a few years, you can have that shade back.
We’re actually glad she tends to stick to one color these days. The blonde streaks are too mismatched with her dark roots.
Oh say, can you see Kylie? We can’t either.
Kylie debuted fringe at the MTV Video Music Awards in August and kept the look for a couple of days, rocking bangs at a party for Balmain as well. While the color is true to the reality star’s natural hue, the bangs are a bit too thick and the hair is so shiny, that it’s pretty obviously fake.
But when it's all said and done, it’s hard not to at least give Kylie credit for feeling so free to experiment with her looks.
