Her dark-brown roots fade to a golden caramel shade.
What with Kendall Jenner being a model, a member of the Kardashian-Jenner brood, and a spokesperson for a styling-tool brand, her hair is pretty much always in the spotlight. So even if she posts an Instagram photo that has nothing to do with her hair, it can steal the show, especially when she’s sporting a look other than her signature glossy, dark-brown style.
Jenner shared three post-Thanksgiving photos in which she’s enjoying the “coziest weather”—at least Southern California’s version of it—wearing black leggings and a black turtleneck next to a beautiful pool with a view of the mountains. We see her from several angles, but it’s in the very first photo, in which her back is to the camera and she’s arching backward, that it’s apparent Jenner is currently rocking an ombré look. Her roots are her natural dark brown shade, and color shifts to a golden caramel shade toward the ends.
It’s not entirely clear if Jenner visited a colorist to intentionally give her hair color a gradient look or if this is just the natural evolution of a couple of quick changes she made earlier in the fall. Jenner surprised everyone by bleaching her hair, walking in London Fashion Week’s Burberry show and Milan Fashion Week’s Versace and Fendi shows with sandy blonde hair—a color we’d never seen on her without the help of a wig. And then, just a few days later, her hair was dyed back to nearly black for the Emmy Awards. And as anyone who’s ever put dark dye over a lighter color can tell you, that dark dye will inevitably fade and let the lighter tones peek through, regardless of whether your hair was naturally dark to begin with.
But whether Jenner’s current color is an accidental or intentional ombré, it looks fantastic and is sure to send a few fans running to the salon for their own versions of the look.
