The Kardashian/Jenner clan have long been advocates of the lob. First, Kim did it when she decided to go Draco Malfoy-blonde, then Kylie followed suit (and proceeded to keep it hidden with a plethora of mint green wigs), and, most recently, Kendall debuted a shorter, decidedly more pink style. Now, Khloe‘s joined the Short Hair Club, and it’s probably the best news of the week (and it’s only Monday).
Her hairstylist, Jen Atkin (whose client list includes the rest of the Kardashian family, as well as Chrissy Teigen, Emma Stone, and Katy Perry) posted the above photo to her Instagram yesterday along with the caption,
“Guess who just joined the #ShortHairDontCare club! Do we like? #LOBS4LIFE makeup @joycebonelli thx @traceycunningham1 @oncolourground for ur help!!”
So, you know, the same kind of celebratory caption you would post along with a selfie of your new haircut, just with significantly bigger makeup artists and stylists in the credits.
The Kardashians are no strangers to changing up their looks (Khloe herself has proven to be the family’s biggest beauty guru on more than one occasion), and even taking into account Khloe’s more recent transition to a light blonde shade, this cut is one of her biggest beauty transformations yet. From the looks of it, she cut off close to an entire foot of hair. Here’s how long it was pre-cut:
I mean, my hair was that long too until this past weekend when I finally (begrudgingly) got a trim after almost 10 months of avoiding the hair salon, and I still only parted with, at most, three inches. To cut that much hair off, especially for someone who’s had long hair for such a long time, is a huge adjustment, and it kind of shows just how fearless Khloe is when it comes to changing up her look.
The cut came just in time for Kim’s adorable Troop Beverly Hills-themed baby shower this weekend, and the photos prove that it was pretty much the chicest pajama party known to man:
The lob goes perfectly with the cozy striped PJ set-and-white fashion sneakers combo. Then again, it’ll probably go just as well with one of Khloe’s classic plunging-neckline/high-thigh slit dresses, too.
Keep doing you, Khlo. The world loves it.
