Kim Kardashian is most famous for one particular body part: her long, dark hair. No? OK, but she IS known for her long, dark hair. Like many naturally dark-haired women, she likes to mix it up from time to time, and has done so with varied levels of success using highlights, extensions, and wigs.
Kim’s most recent makeover took five hours and included a base lift and two full highlights, according to her stylist, and I spy some telltale signs of hair extensions as well. Dark hair (natural, or even more so when it’s been colored dark) will often only lighten to a medium-light shade, at least during the first visit for a corrective color process.

Another tip to help you detect hair extensions: natural hair is never thicker and healthier on the ends, than in the mid-shaft.
Additionally, she has a hint of what we hairdressers call “hot roots”, a situation that occurs when the base formula is just a little off and the hair gets lighter right at the scalp. There is also a lot of frizz going on here. Bleach, as well as pregnancy and post-partum hormones, can make hair more coarse, dry and frizzy.
