Kim Kardashian: Why Did She Go Blonde?

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian has dyed her hair blonde, which raises two questions:

  1. Do you like it?
  2. WHY?

"She wanted a big change," the star's hairdresser, George Papanikolas, tells Us Weekly of the light locks. "It was Kim's idea to go blonde, but everyone around her had some influence including myself."

Papanikola, who has also worked with Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, along with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, says Kim went "caramel blonde" a few years ago, but this is more of a "honey blonde."

For how long will the style stick around?

"I'm assuming she will keep it once they start shooting the next season [of Keeping Up With the Kardashians] since they usually don't do a big hair color change mid-season," Papanikolas says.

Dying her hair while she is still breastfeeding, causing an early birth by not attending to her pregnancy properly...sad.


What is Sad is that you are blaming a mother for a premature baby?Lots of horrid moms there is then.As far as feeding Baby, I'm sure her doctor has advised Kim on what is myth & fact.


She wanted a change? You know I've been stopping each and every stranger on the street asking that question BUT I never thought she just might want a change!


Because she wanted to.

@ Kimberly

Just go through watching a video of a girl talking about her struggle. Dated June 19. It was very moving. Reminded me of my mother at one time. She never really changed so I had to change my thinking. It wasn't easy but at some point (I guess) I realized I could never change her only my own reaction to the way she was. Makes a person feel stuck, hopeless, like nothing will ever change. I had to take care of myself because If I didn't I was of no use to her. I had to put distance (emotionally speaking) in order to stay close to her. Yeah- boy do I remember, remember the pain. Her mindset was like a tornado, never seeing the damage being caused. She never did change, she was dug in. We have to survive at any cost. Maybe that's what that guy meant when he pissed you off?
