Kim Kardashian’s hair is almost as famous as she is! So you can imagine how surprised I was when she decided to cut it. I totally love seeing my girl happy, so the length of her hair is irrelevant. Although it seriously looks so fresh and fun right now! Another noticeable change is how super straight she’s been wearing it. Long gone are the days of seeing her bouncy waves or sexy curls. While I know she’ll go back to that gorgeous look one day, she’s definitely enjoying setting the trend for the warmer weather.
Get the Look: Kim Kardashian's Straight Hair
What I adore about her new look is that she can wear it when she’s out and about with the kids or shopping with the girls as she can on the red carpet of the Met Gala. In order to get your hair similar to hers, you’re going to have to do a little prep work in order to protect your strands. To find out how Kim tames her bob, keep reading! Hair stylist to the stars Justine Marjan---who created this chic new look for Kim--- gave PeopleStyle the scoop.
“[Kim’s] cut is super fresh, young, and makes her hair look shiny and healthy,” Marjan told the publication. “Her long strands were almost like a fashion accessory – like a coat – so the short strands are lighter for the warmer weather. I think everyone loves going short for summer.”
The best thing about this simple look is that it can work on nearly anyone. “This can be done on all hair textures as long as the hair has been prepped properly and changes are made to accommodate the hair type,” Marjan said. “As long as you’re using the right tools and products, heat damage is no concern.”
One more bonus is that you can get the same look in four little steps. Here’s how Justine created Kim’s:
- Prep the hair with a shine serum (Marjan used one by TRESémme on Kim), then blow dry the hair with the nozzle attachment facing down for a super sleek, shiny blowout. Pro tip: keep the hair as flat to the head as possibly while drying for minimal volume!
- Section the hair into three parts (left, right and back), brush a 1 to 1.5″ section of the hair from roots to ends, then follow the brush with your flat iron. Pro tip: Leave your hair in the brush for a moment when you get to the ends so the hair cools down, then release.
- After the hair is flat ironed, use your hands to press the hair against the scalp and use the cool shot of the blow dryer to set it.
- Spray a toothbrush with the hairspray and gently brush the hair around the face and brush down any flyaway strands. Pro tip: If you experience frizz or static throughout the day, gently pat a serum or dryer sheet over the hair to tame it.
