Kim showed off the dramatic hairstyle on a night out in Beverly Hills. Her hair was in cornrows, tight twists and even ‘pierced.’ Are you a fan of this look?
Kim Kardashian, 35, rocked braids in her hair on August 4. She gave a shout-out to her hairstylist Chris Appleton on her Snapchat, and he posted the look on his Instagram.
Kim’s hair was also “pierced” — a trend we have seen on Christina Aguilera and just recently on Shay Mitchell at the Teen Choice Awards, which Chris actually did as well.

Kim’s hairstylist Chris told People.com: “I wanted to create a braid look on Kim but make it different. So I decided to make a combination of braids and twists. And I made the hoops, my signature, to make the look updated and new.”
Chris said the look took 45 minutes. He used a “gel serum by Oribe to braid and keep the hair clean — this is key to creating the look. I divided the look into 3 large cornrows and 8 small twists. I made sure the hoops I made had an opening like an earring does, so they slip on and off the hair with ease.”
Chris continued: “I mixed a combination of silver and gold in different size hoops. To keep the look slightly softer, I left some of Kim’s hairline out for a real editorial feel. I wanted to create a strong iconic look with a soft finish.”
