Kim Kardashian's 40th birthday celebrations have been causing quite a stir, with fans mocking the family for being a tad out of touch with reality.

"After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time," Kim tweeted earlier this month.

"We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realise that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40"

It's been difficult not to stare open-mouthed at pictures of Kim, her family and their bikini-clad friend frolicking on sandy beaches surrounded by palm trees *sigh*, and one thing we've noticed while staring (apart from Kylie not being there), is that Kim's hair has been looking veeery different...

In the lead up to her birthday celebrations it felt like she wore a different hairstyle every day; the '90s half ponytail, the soft crimp à la Britney Spears, the super-long pony plait, so considering she's celebrating the biggest birthday milestone ever, we can't help feeling like the airline must have lost her hair bag (do private jets lose luggage?)

After examining her holiday shots even more than we already have, we finally realised what it was: Kim's gone on a styling break (don't we all on our holibobs?), and looking at her natural, air-dried waves, we think it's paying off....

Even when Kim got glammed up for dinner, wearing a revealing gold dress and her signature contoured face, her hair stayed down with a natural wave, like it had just air-dried from being in the sea all day...

Ironically, Kim's go-to hair man Chris Appleton joined her on the trip, but he's obviously there as a friend, because those locks have not seen a pair of straighteners, a curling tong or even a hairband for the duration...

The next time we go on holiday to a private island, we're leaving the hair straighteners at home, too...
