Kim Kardashian shows off another brand new hair look with a puffed-up ponytail clip-in

Kim Kardashian has become a bit of a beauty junkie when it comes to hair clip-ins of late.

The pregnant Keeping Up With The Kardashians first racked up column inches when she was spotted with a faux fringe, whipping paparazzi into a frenzy with bangs to rival Kate Middleton.

Now the 32-year-old has shown off a puffed up ponytail to fans, which we’re guessing is yet another hairpiece the star is trialling.

Kim took to Instagram to reveal her new look, posing in a crushed berry satin dress as she showed off the pony – which featured tiered balls knotted down her back.

Describing her look alongside, she wrote: “Puff pony tail swag.”

With her brunette locks scraped back – and, we’re guessing, in a bun under the clip-in – Kim teamed the unusual new pony with gold jewellery, nude lips and a flash of bronzer.

The expectant star seems to be having a bit of a moment with the beauty trend for clip-in hairpieces of late, trying out new styles thanks to the whole range of versatile pieces available.

And while this latest puffed-up version garnered a mixed review from fans, here in the Lifestyle beauty team we’re loving that she’s highlighting the clip-in trend.
