You’re in the salon world, so you already know short hair is the celebrity hair trend of 2017, but just in case you needed any more convincing, one of the world’s foremost trend-setters has gone short – at least temporarily. Khloe Kardashian (seemingly) chopped her hair into a short blunt bob, but as is often the case with Kardashian beauty, there was more to this cut than the Instagram picture told, and Khloe took us inside the salon to explain the details.
Khloe’s Snapchat showcased her in the chair, with Kendall and Kylie by her side (Kylie even snipped off some of the hair herself – remind your clients not to try this at home!) and even showed her debate over hair length with hairdresser Jen Aitken. The resulting Instagram shot has close to 1 million ‘likes’ at the time of writing.
However, while it may look like Khloe cut off her notoriously long blonde locks, there is more to the story. “I didn’t cut my real hair,” she revealed on social media. “I braided up all my long hair, and I sewed on extensions, and we cut the extensions. I have waited far too long to grow my hair to cut it. So, everything is changeable.”
Your clients have enough celebrity inspiration to go short, even if Khloe has only opted for the style temporarily. This season, Lucy Hale, Kerry Washington and Emma Roberts have been among the celebrities opting for the bob, while stars such as Cara Delevingne and Katy Perry have gone even shorter.
With so much love pouring in for Khloe’s new look, maybe she’ll make the change more permanent, and until then, it’s just another reminder of how much power hair extensions can have.
What do you think of the look?
