E! Online reported that Kardashian debuted the lighter, shorter hairdo
over the weekend at a friends’ barbecue in Beverly Hills. She attended the outing with North, her sister, Kourtney, and Kourtney’s children, Mason and Penelope.
Famous colorist George Papanikolos told E! Online that he worked on Kim’s hair at Kris Jenner's house as the entire family watched.
"It was scary for me because she gets photographed a lot," he said.
As for Kanye, "He loves it! He was a big cheerleader for her to go blond," Papanikolos reportedly said.
Kardashian’s dye job was not a total surprise to fans.
In April, Kim posted an old photo of her with lighter hair on Instagram, captioning it, "Missing my blonde."
The reality star went a few shades lighter in 2009 and 2012, when she tweeted, "Blonde hair don't care."
E! Online reactions to the new mom's look were mixed.
“I didn't recognize her at first, had to read the caption,” one poster wrote. “I do think she looks better this way, but does that mean all the Kardashian's will now have to highlight their hair to be in sync?”
Another wrote, “Her hair is usually so shiny and healthy but now it looks broken and dry. Why color such beautiful healthy hair?”
“What does Kanye think?. On the first page of this site it calles her Blond Babe, when in all reality, she is a blond bomb!” another said.
Some posters said they think she's wearing a wig.
“She has a wig on! Your natural hair is not parted three different ways! She had a weave before! Just new drama to keep stupid ppl.interested!” the poster wrote.
