Kim Kardashian : When Kim went Platinum

19th October 2017.
by Alia Khan.

While Paris Fashion Week commenced, what would be a better way to kick off one of the fashion industry’s biggest weeks – other than for Kim Kardashian to die her brunette hair to new, sleek PLATINUM do’.

Now, we all know that the Queen is no stranger to making media headlines and she is definitely not camera shy… This daring change could not have gone better of her. Everyone is used to her brunette hair paired with the signature bronze and smokey eyes, of course teamed up with a perfect nude lip.

But from the change, she switched up her usual go-to, and went for a more fresh faced look with simple, yet effective, make up – rather than the usual heavily bronzed, and glossy finish.

Here at PDHQ, we LOVE Kim as a blonde bombshell, but she did go back to the dark side shortly afterwards. Forever changing her style, she’s gone back to blonde and we couldn’t be more excited that she’s back to the super sassy opposite look. This time instead of going for a clean platinum colour, she’s decided to go for a more ashy silver blonde. Personally, we love this look more than the first time. She’s been wearing her long tresses wild and effortless, combined with sports luxe clothes in various shades of grey. Overall, she is killin’ it with her laid back vibe while still nailing smart casj.

Winter is fast approaching us and what better way to start it, is by changing up you’re own hair?! It’s always refreshing taking a trip to the salon to and come out feeling ready to take on the next few months – party season is coming after all! But hold on baes, we gotta give you some insight if you’re going to make the the big move like Kim. She said “I’ve been talking about going blonde again for a long time, and I’m so happy I did!” she wrote. “I know a lot of people initially thought I was wearing a wig, but it’s my real hair. My amazing stylist, Chris Appleton, dyed my hair and got it to the most perfect platinum, silvery-white color.”

Kim also had to sit for a whopping 12 hours straight for the colour to be applicated in order to minimise as much damage as possible.

Her main tip is to use Olaplex for a week long plus frequent conditioning, before toning and lifting the hair to the desired colour.
