Kim Kardashian shows off her new fiery red hair in video, gets accused of copying Dua Lipa's style
Kardashian, in April, hinted at her new look after her hairstylist Chris Appleton posted a series of photos of her various hair hues asking which one was everyone's favorite. She had then picked red
Kim Kardashian West took fans by surprise on Monday, June 29, when she shared videos of her usually dark brown hair dyed a fiery shade of red. Kardashian West shared three videos of her new hair color on her Instagram stories. In one of them, she asked her 177 million followers there, “You guys, I dyed my hair red. Do you love it?"
Later, she shared the same video to her Twitter account (that has 65.5 million followers), with red heart and fire emojis. A few of the fans of the makeup mogul were not surprised. Just a few hours earlier, a paparazzi account shared photos of Kardashian West sporting the new look. In fact, she was wearing the same orange top as she did in the Instagram story, although with a black leather jacket along with it.
This isn’t the first time Kardashian West has made news with her red hair. In February 2019, she was spotted in Los Angeles, sporting a short, bright red wig. At that time, there was some speculation about whether or not she had actually dyed her hair. But this time, it appears to be the real deal. Kardashian West’s hairstylist Chris Appleton confirmed the news to People magazine. In fact, she also shared it on her own Instagram and wrote, “Red head. It’s NOT a wig before you start with that s***.”
Back in March, Kardashian West shared a photo of her blonde hair and wrote on Instagram, “My hair is gonna be so healthy after this quarantined time. Contemplating dyeing it blonde when we can have human interaction again.”
But it appears that she has changed her mind. In fact, she even hinted at what it was going to be. In April, when Appleton posted a series of photos of the Kardashian West's various hair hues asking which one was everyone's favorite, she picked red.
Reactions to the hair color were mixed. From “Yes we love it,” to “No, honey,” to “I don’t care,” her followers had a lot to say. Many in her replies seemed to agree that red was her color. Fans pointed out how they had been saying for ages that Kardashian West should wear more red.
Many, however, claimed that she was ripping off singer Dua Lipa’s style, who earlier this month showed off her new cherry red tresses. “You will never be Dua Lip,” wrote one person on Twitter. Another said, “Dua’s impact,” quoting Kardashian West’s tweet.
Another Twitter user, commenting both on the hair color and the hairdo, wrote: "Funny how Dua literally invented this hairstyle and the rest of Hollywood and the GP are now all suddenly using it. The impact." A Twitter user quoted Kardashian West and wrote, "Dua Lipa the blueprint."
