Short hair, don’t care! Though Kim Kardashian often remains faithful to one hairstyle in particular— you know, those commercial-worthy long raven locks — the reality TV queen has been known to deviate from her signature look.
As we all know, Kim, 36, employs the magic of wigs and extensions to switch up her look whenever she pleases. So it’s difficult to tell just how much of her hair is actually, well, hers. Thankfully, we no longer have to wonder.
The Selfish author took to Instagram last month to treat fans to a live video tutorial of her daily contour routine. While her tips and tricks to creating the perfect glow were surely appreciated — thanks, girl! — we couldn’t keep our eyes off of Kim’s teeny-tiny, French-braided pigtails.
Right before her contour video, Kim was rocking loose waves that cascaded past her shoulders at the launch party for her new makeup line KKW Beauty. Hours before attending the event, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star thanked her hair and makeup artists for their hard work. “When your glam squad is focused!!!” she enthused on Instagram.
Kim previously sported short hair at the 2015 Grammy Awards. That same year, she opened up about the edgy ‘do during an Instagram takeover for Kardashian Beauty Hair. "I went short for the Grammys. This is the shortest I've gone. We added lots of volume and kept the look a little untidy,” she wrote at the time, adding that sister Khloé Kardashian’s lob had inspired her to get the chop.
During a 2014 interview with Glamour UK, Kim suggested that cutting off her enviable tresses was out of the question. “I think [my sisters and I] spend so much time and so much energy … to grow our hair long,” she told the publication. “I don't think I would cut it anytime soon.”
