The world must have shifted on its axis, because the unthinkable has happened—Kim Kardashian waved adios to her trademark locks!

This past Friday, Kim popped in to the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood, CA to pay a visit to Joico’s celebrity hair stylist George Papinoklas—he gave her a total color overhaul, taking her signature dark locks (seen here) to a lighter, trendier chocolate brown. First, Papinoklas “softened her natural black hair color to a dark chocolate with Joico‘s Base Breaker, then used balayage highlights to add rich chocolate pieces around her face and ends of hair.” The result? A gorgeous, low-maintenance color that graduates from a deep, dark chocolate to luscious milk chocolate  at the ends.

Looking to make a Kim K.-inspired color transformation? Papinoklas suggests adding Joico’s K-Pak RevitaLuxe treatment to your tress routine, especially if your hair is already damaged. To protect your color and keep it looking lush, Joico‘s K-Pak Color Therapy will help prevent fading, while Joico‘s Revitalux will boost softness and shine.
