In the post, the celebrity hair pro captured photos of Kim, 43, as she pouted in a skintight black dress.

The Hulu star wore a full face of makeup, and ditched jewelry to draw attention to her new look.

Kim’s hair was styled in an updo, with choppy bangs and loose layers.

In contrast to her natural brunette, Kim’s hair was almost white in comparison to her dark roots.

“Babewatch,” Chris captioned the photos.

In the comment section, however, fans weren’t keen on Kim’s bold look.

“She looks way way older with blonde,” one person said.

“The blonde makes her look harder. It’s not flattering,” said a second social media user.

“I’m sick of her white hair… it’s not pretty,” said a third.

“Please ditch the platinum. Otherwise, hot,” another fan weighed in.

Kim previously went a very light blonde while channeling Marilyn Monroe at the 2022 Met Gala.

Kim dyed her hair blond in 15-hour sessions for the event, in a “tedious” process taking two days.

However, fans didn’t think that the intense process was worth it, and claimed that the bleach ruined Kim’s real hair.

Kim revealed her blond hair without extensions in a TikTok with her daughter North West, 10.

Oh my god you guys, I just got Priscilla’s new hair extensions. I’ve been using Priscilla for the last, like, six months? And I’m obsessed.

“I can’t get over how thin it looks now,” one person said of her hair on Reddit.

“Her hair has definitely gotten thinner over the years. It’s not just the bleaching.

“It’s also the heat damage daily, the tight slicked back styles, wearing her hair super tight under wigs,” said a second.

Kim has been open about her frequent use of extensions and wigs.

“Oh my god you guys, I just got Priscilla’s new hair extensions. I’ve been using Priscilla for the last, like, six months? And I’m obsessed,” she once gushed on Instagram, referring to Keratin bond extensions from Priscilla Valles.


Kim also went blond for this year’s Met Gala, but didn’t win over fans with her look.

The Kardashians in attendance were all slammed for their “boring” looks, but Kim was particularly criticized.

For the red carpet event, she wore a silver archival John Galliano gown with a dramatic corset, and opted for a gray shawl over her shoulders.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, fans blasted the unusual look.


“She looks like she just woke up,” one critic wrote.

“All that, and she couldn’t do her hair?” asked a second.
