Just three months after giving birth to baby North West, Kim Kardashian severely changed her appearance. Once known for her long, brown locks, Kardashian is now a blonde.

The reality TV star debuted her new look over Labor Day weekend, according to Us Weekly. Kardashian’s hair stylist, George Papanikolas, said that they used pictures to select a shade of blonde that work well with her skin tone. Because Kardashian had such naturally dark hair, Papanikolas said he had to lighten her base color about two shades and then go through two rounds of highlighting.

The entire process reportedly took about five hours. Furthermore, Papanikolas said that leaving depth at the root base was important to avoid a washed-out appearance. After the process was complete, he said it would be important for Kardashian to use a violet-tinted shampoo to maintain the blonde tones.

What do you think of Kardashian’s new look? Was blonde a good color choice, or should she have stayed a brunette?
