Khloe Kardashian has cut her signature long blond hair, and the results of Khloe’s shorter hair can be seen in plenty of Instagram photos on Kardashian’s account and other Instagram accounts. In one photo, titled “Sister Sunday,” Khloe plays with her shorter hair as she sits on the couch with Kendall, Kylie, Kim, and Kourtney. All of the Kardashian and Jenner women are dressed in comfortable pajamas as Kim flashes the peace sign with two fingers. The Instagram photo shows Khloe’s sheared hair being the shortest and blondest of the bunch.
According to Us Magazine, it was both Kendall and Jen Atkin who broke the news on Instagram about Khloe’s cut hair, not necessarily Kardashian herself. In an Instagram post that featured Khloe’s newly-cut hairstyle, the “Jen Atkin hair” Instagram account introduced the world to Khloe’s new and shorter hairstyle, and asked Instagram followers for feedback. Jen also gave shouts out to Kardashian’s makeup stylist and colorist for the results.
Reactions to 31-year-old Khloe’s haircut were resoundingly positive, with the photo of Khloe’s shorter hairstyle gaining more than 35,000 likes in 15 hours since the photo was published to Instagram. Kardashian’s followers were overjoyed to see Khloe back in the spotlight after having been by Lamar Odom’s side since October 13, the day that news broke about Lamar nearly losing his life in an alleged drug-fueled overdose fest at the Love Ranch brothel north of Las Vegas.
Atkin is a famous hairstylist to the stars, and Jen has styled celebrities other than Khloe, such as Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, and Katy Perry. It was Jen’s Instagram post on Sunday, October 25, with Kardashian sporting the shoulder-length, shorter haircut that gained plenty of attention and a strong reaction from fans who loved the shorter haircut on Khloe.
As early as October 12, when Khloe made an appearance in West Hollywood, California, at the Cosmopolitan 50th Birthday Celebration at Ysabel — the day prior to Lamar’s overdose — Khloe was seen sporting much longer hair that was slicked back into a style that flowed down her back. With this shorter style, it appears Kardashian may have had a good six inches or more cut off of her hair. The Kardashian women have admitted to wearing hair extensions on their Keeping Up With the Kardashians show, however, so it’s unknown if Khloe had any hair extensions giving her that previous length of hair.
What is known is that women oftentimes make changes to their hair when going through big lifestyle changes. It has become a cliche that’s often true to see a woman who has gotten divorced chop off her hair and lose weight. Apparently, Khloe felt the need for a new look, and according to plenty of Kardashian fans on Instagram, that new haircut suits Kardashian very well, indeed. Some lamented that they wanted to emulate Khloe’s haircut, but couldn’t do so out of fear of cutting their own hair, or because the shorter hair wouldn’t suit their face shape and size. Others blamed the harshness of going blonde and the damages that it can cause as the reason for Kardashian having her hair cut off.
