Kim Kardashian Debuts Blonde Hair at New York Fashion Week (Update) – Allure Magazine
UPDATE (September 8, 2017 1:18 p.m. EST): When we first spotted Kim Kardashian at Tom Ford’s spring/summer 2018 show earlier this week with icy blonde hair, we had our reservations about whether she was wearing a wig or not.
Well, we just got as good of a confirmation as any that the Khaleesi-inspired hue is completely real. All that platinum is actually her hair. Kardashian revealed the truth, as well as just how long it took to transform her hair platinum blonde, on her app Friday morning.
Spoiler alert: It took hairstylist Chris Appleton 17 hours. I repeat, 1-7 hours to create the shocking hue. “The last time I went platinum, a few years back, I dyed it in one sitting and never gave it the proper time,” Kardashian wrote in the post. “So this time, I sat there 12 hours straight. Then, we did another 5-hour session. In the end, SO worth it.”
On top of that, she also had to spend a week with yellow-y blonde hair to condition it before toning it. Damn. It goes without saying that Kardashian probably plans to keep the bold hue for a while — through fashion week and beyond. After all that work, we don’t blame her for wanting to keep it around.

Leave it to Kim Kardashian to kick off New York Fashion Week with a bang — a blonde bang, that is. The budding beauty mogul debuted a dramatic icy blonde hue on the red carpet at the Tom Ford show in New York City Wednesday evening.
Although Kardashian is no stranger to sensational shades (she continues to keep us on our toes by regularly switching from striking platinum blonde to glimmering jet black), the center-parted, waist-length silver ‘do is certainly new for the reality TV star. So new one would guess she caught the last episode of season 7’s Game of Thrones and decided to pull hairspiration from Khaleesi herself, Daenerys Targaryen. (Which obviously didn’t happen, but on the off chance it did, we’re certainly not mad at it, BTW.)
Before we chalk Kardashian’s new look up to royalty, it’s important to note that, based on the star’s hairstylist, Chris Appleton, there’s a 99 percent chance this silver-y shade is far from the real deal. “Guess who? Seeing if blondes have more fun! Silver white hair vibes! It’s NYFW!
Colour and cut by me #chrisappletonhair @kimkardashian Makeup @makeupbyariel,” Appleton wrote in a debut snapshot on Instagram.
Real or not, there’s no denying the fact that Kardashian is pulling out all the stops for Fashion Week. Stay tuned for more Kardashian shenanigans — we’ll be Keeping Up with the Khaleesi all week long.
