Kim Kardashian went blonde—but she really means “bronde”

Kim Kardashian

Can you smell it? It’s the eau de desperation to stay relevant. Palpable, I’d say.

So of course, one of the easiest things to do (after you’ve already exhausted such tried-and-true strategies such as sex tapes and 72-day marriages) is to simply change your hair colour. Kim Kardashian Tweeted the above pic on Friday, and also wrote “blonde hair don’t care.” Oh come now, Kim, you DO CARE.

Remember the last time she went lighter? This was in 2009:

We can’t really tell yet what the 2012 version looks like, but so far it seems better: more tone-on-tone and solid-looking (like I always carry on about). See how streaky the 2009 hair looks? Too many highlights. It is amazing how quickly hair can look dated—this was just a few years ago!

And that brings me to the topic of “bronde.” Not blonde, not brown, but something in between. Being so anti-blonde these days, I’m a HUGE advocate. It kinda works on everyone, you know? So many people that are blonde should really be bronde; it’s just more flattering.

What do you think of Kim’s new colour?
Do you think more people should be bronde instead of blonde?
Have you ever been bronde yourself—or would you consider it?

No! LOVED her brown hair – as with all the Kardasdhian sisters , dark brown just IS their color!

It’s going to look more “unhealthy” now

I’m bronde right now. My natural color is now light brown. I do have a slight ombre/balayage combo highlight sitch but they are mostly a honey color. I was blonde for a while but like you I feel I along with many look better bronde.Celeb color match probably Sarah Jessica Parker’s current color. Being almost 43 with only a few random greys, I’m trying to get as much in on my natural color as I can. Well close to it, I do a toner to warm it and blend highlights a bit.

Funny thing though even though I’ve cut down on the amount and the tone of the highlights people including my children still describe me as blonde. Could be because I’ve been blonde in the past , I’m not sure. Or maybe they like kim equal even a small percentage of blonde hair with being a blonde.

Naturally bronde! With this and the pink/red/burgundy eyeshadow coming in, I feel weirdly on-trend.

Natural bronde here. And I like that word better than “dishwater blonde”, which is what I’ve been told I am (after being squinted at for a few minutes… “no, you really aren’t blonde, but you definitely aren’t brunette…” — I can’t even count the times I’ve had that conversation with people, usually after they’ve tried to jab me with a blonde joke).
