Kim Kardashian Gets a Haircut: Does It Live Up to All Her Hype?

Updated

Hot momma! After letting her millions of followers know she was “officially over” her long hair, Kim Kardashian West finally debuted a new cut. But it’s not what we were expecting.

On Friday, Kim alerted everyone on social media that she was headed for a chop via this sexy car selfie. So we refreshed her feed all weekend, and no hair change. With all of her teasers, we were anticipating something big — maybe a return to her lob (an editor favorite) or even a Kris Jenner-style pixie.

But on Monday she proved us wrong with her reveal — a healthy trim (about 2-3 inches), plus, an updated shape with a few layers. Basically, nothing drastic. She celebrated her new look with an airplane mirror selfie — her favorite type of selfie.

Kim also prepped her tresses to be papped, arriving at LAX Monday with perfect textured waves. As for her outfit, she continued with her spandex-loving maternity style in a second-skin pencil skirt and plunging nude bodysuit, which she paired with a cognac-colored leather jacket.

The last time Kim got a haircut, it was a more dramatic shoulder-grazing style, and she also revealed it on Instagram.

However, we know that the 34-year-old reality star doesn’t usually stray from her signature chest-length strands for long. When she went platinum in March, she revealed: “It was a really last-minute decision, and I loved taking this risk. It’s a fun look, but I’m not sure how long it’ll last — but a fun break for now.”
