After Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to reveal her newest look, a chic blunt bob, expert hair stylists at London hair salon Top One have revealed their list of the most iconic Kardashian hairstyles.
Kendall’s Auburn - 65.3 million views
Kendall Jenner dominated feeds in 2022 when she swapped her trademark brown hair for a sleek auburn look. TikTok hashtags for ‘Kendall Jenner auburn hair gloss formula’ quickly racked up over 65 million views, with many people trying to recreate the look. Autumn may be the perfect time for clients to try out auburn hair, with fiery coppers and rich chestnut hues making a comeback year after year.
But what should you advise your clients when they want to follow the copper trends? Find out here.
Top One comment: “We loved Kendall’s auburn hair and how much it suited her olive skin tone. Note that auburn requires maintaining as the red tones can fade quickly."
Top One's suggestions to maintain the colour:
Clients should avoid washing their hair too frequently as this can cause the colour to fade quickly.
Use sulphate free products as sulphate can encourage red tones to fade.
Choose colour safe shampoos and conditioners to help keep clients' colour vibrant.
Kim Kardashian’s Blunt Bob - 59.2 million views
On TikTok, #kimkardashianhair has nearly 60 million views and, as Kim is the queen of hair reveals, her ever-changing styles never fail to impress. She recently took to Instagram to share her face-framing blunt bob.
Top One stylists suggest: “Although clients might be scared to take the plunge, keeping a bob looking sleek is actually pretty easy. Hydration is a bob’s best friend as it keeps the ends smooth and flyaways at bay, leaving their hair looking healthy. We also recommend that they get regular trims to keep on top of any split ends while maintaining the blunt cut.”
Khloe Kardashian’s Long Bob - 27.1 million views
The long bob, also known as the lob, is a common Kardashian hairstyle that Kim and Kylie have both rocked. What's more, Khloe opted for a lob in 2022, after first debuting the look back in 2017, choosing a slice style with blunt edges this time. Her lob is well loved with #khloekardashianlongbob reaching 27 million views on TikTok.
Top One comment: “Lobs are the perfect balance between short and effortless, while still being long enough to style. Khloe displays the different styles you can explore with a lob as keeping it straight and sleek is just one option; clients can curl it, or even create soft beachy waves. It is a great style to choose if they want to go for a bob but are apprehensive of going super short."
Kylie Jenner’s Blue Ombre - 4.5 million views
Everyone remembers the iconic moment in 2014 when Kylie Jenner arrived at the BMA’s with a blue ombre look, transforming her previous brown-to-blonde ombre. The blue hair is still a fan favourite, with #kyliejennerbluehair raking in over 4 million views on TikTok, proving its timeless popularity as TikTok didn’t even exist at the time.
Top One stylists say: “Keeping on top of blue shades is key as they can fade quickly into a green colour. Clients should try to keep washing to a minimum, and especially avoid washing with anti-dandruff shampoos as these can fade hair colours. Instead, they should opt for a purple shampoo to help keep the vibrant hues."
It's also important to keep in mind that blue tones are difficult to remove when eventually needed.
Top One's suggestions for removing blue hair tones when desired:
Anti-dandruff shampoos contain zinc pyrithione (ZPT) which can naturally strip hair colour.
Toning shampoo and conditioners; pink and red toners will neutralise greens, and pale orange toners will neutralise pale blue or silver.
Colour fading shampoos, also referred to as clarifying shampoos, can help to break down the colour molecules left in the hair.
Ultimately, clients should visit their hairdresser to avoid dryness or damage to the hair when removing the blue tones.
Kris Jenner’s Pixie Cut - 56,400 views
Kris Jenner is best known for her trademark pixie cut which she bleached in 2018. Although bleached hair often features in the Kardashian hairtsyles, Kris’ makeover is particularly popular with over 55,000 TikTok views for #blondekrisjenner.
Top One advise: “Bleaching hair is a big decision for clients and it can take a lot of work to get the colour they desire. Unlike most, the Kardashians have their own glam team of hair professionals to help them achieve an icy white blonde. Box bleach can damage the hair and sometimes cause severe breakage which cannot be undone. So, make sure clients always leave bleaching to you as the professionals and don’t attempt to do it themselves.”
