By now you’ve probably heard that Kim Kardashian is a blonde. Come on — even the most remote, far-flung corners of the globe have received that news by now.
It’s been a week since the reality TV star bleached her hair to within an inch of its life, then went back again for more. In that time, some of us have secretly pondered how her hair could withstand that amount of peroxide, while others have rushed out to copy her Snow Queen look.
In fact, according to reports today, Fudge Professional has seen a 312 per cent increase in sales of their Clean Blonde Violet Toning shampoo and conditioner — a must-have for any bottle blonde — in the days since Kim’s hair went flaxen. Woah.
However, amid all this shampoo buying fiasco a Kontroversial Kardashian Konspiracy has emerged. According to
weird randoms trying to stir up shit “insiders”, Kim’s blonde is an optical illusion created by some very cunning hair trickery.
“The first top quarter of her hair in the front is bleached, but the rest isn’t. It’s bleached on the top and sides — and the rest is a wig,” this person, who is allegedly “close” to the Kardashian’s glam squad, whispered to Radar Online.
Kim, how could you do this to us?
“It’s parted perfectly and at different lengths and you always see the front of her head so it looks like it’s all normal.”
Hmm. While we wouldn’t put it past Kim and her SWAT team of professionals to use every tool and trick in their styling box, we have our doubts about this one. For instance, look at this photo Kim took while she was having her hair re-blonded and washed — looks pretty legit, right?
Also, why would anyone in their right mind go to the effort of bleaching two thirds of their hair and then cover the rest with a wig in that exact shade? It seems completely ridiculous, and yet this insider is adamant that Kim is pulling the bleached wool over our collective eyes.
“It’s a trick when talent doesn’t want to ruin their whole head of hair,” he/she says. “It’s all illusion, like her life. She wanted to figure out a way to get a lot of attention in Paris. She’s always trying to steal the spotlight.”
The "source" is right about one thing, though — we're yet to get a really good look at the back of Kimmy's head. For all we know it's a matted black mess back there. We may have to
blackmail reach out to her husband Kanye West (or baby North) for comment.
