Kim Kardashian | Celebrity Hairstyles

Hello! As quite a few people will know I am a fan of the Kardashians, I don't care what people think an it is the pinnacle 'guilty pleasure' TV. The Kardashian's are generally know for their sleek black hair straightened in a middle parting with a nude or red lip, but sometimes they like to mix things up and this week I am focussing on Kim.

*side note a round of applause for my roots please*

Look 1 Thailand Plaits
Apologies as the lighting quality decreases throughout the post!
What you will need: 3 Small Hair bands, preferably clear
Step 1

Start by dividing the front of your Hair into 3 Sections, making sure you have the most hair in the middle section.
Step 2

Back comb the front of the middle section.
Step 3

Starting with the front section French plait each section... use my tutorial here.
Step 4

You can either plait all the way down to the end, or stop and secure when you have finished adding in sections.

Look 2 Givenchy Party, Centre Parting Plaits

You will need: Hair Grips (minimum of about 6, 3 for each side but feel free to go crazy)
This style is created by 2 Dutch Plaits, which is essentially a reverse french plait. This is perhaps my favourite Kim hairstyle, I wore it for our End of School Dinner and cue selfie. If you don't know how to do this I shall do my best to explain with words and pictures. Lets go...

Step 1

Divide your hair into 3 sections. Leaving the back section alone.

Step 2

Starting with one side. Take 3 small sections near the back of your divide on your head.

Step 3

Take section 2 and move it over the top of section 1.

Step 4

This becomes the new section 1. To that section add more hair from the front.

Step 5

Then take section 2 and move it over the top of section 3.

Step 6

This then becomes the new section 3. To that section add more hair this time coming from the back.

Step 7

Repeat steps 3-7

Step 8

Plait the hair down nearly to the ends. Then grip in place behind your ear, being sure that it is bobbly side down on the grip and so they can't be seen.

Step 9

Unplait the ends.

Step 10

Repeat the whole process on the other side.
