Jen Atkin is handing over the reigns to a novice
While Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have been busy building their makeup empires, it’s been a little quiet on the usually very busy Kardashian hair transformation front. So we were very excited when Khloe Kardashian not only debuted a new haircut on Snapchat, but also employed an unexpected hairdresser for the job.
Even though the Kardashian’s regular hairdresser Jen Atkin was present, the most surprising part of the series of Snapchat videos was when Atkin handed the scissors to none other than Khloe’s youngest sister, Kylie.
The first video shows Khloe saying (in a high-pitched Snapchat filtered voice), “Jen is going to be cutting my hair, but I don’t know if she knows what she’s doing. Okay, Kylie, you cut it”. The other videos then show Kylie diving right in and chopping some serious centimetres off Khloe’s hair.
However Khloe explained afterwards, “Guys, I didn’t cut my real hair. 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, this is all changeable,” she said. In the meantime, Khloe seems to be running with the short hair look and absolutely rocking it! And who knows, there may be a future in hairdressing for Kylie.
