Update 29/6/20: Having spent the entirety of lockdown transitioning her hair from her signature brunette shade, through a caramel bronde hue, and finally to an icy platinum blonde just last week, Kylie Jenner has embraced yet another hair transformation.

Jenner's colour of choice this time? Pastel pink of course!

The Kylie Cosmetics beauty entrepreneur took to Instagram to show off her new candyfloss-coloured hair that she styled in a sleek and straight centre-parted 'do.

Having shared a picture of her newly white blonde hair on Saturday, the 22-year-old then posted a fan account photo that edited the image to give Jenner's platinum look a bubblegum pink overhaul. Clearly the reality TV star loved the look so much, she made it happen IRL.

Or did she? Continuing the Instagram hair reveals, Jenner posted a series of selfies mere hours ago that show her rocking her natural warm brunette hair in a slicked back bun. We can only conclude that the blonde and pink looks were in fact sneaky wigs from the mum of one's extensive wig wardrobe. You got us this time Kylie!

Update 1/7/30: Another day, another hair colour for Kylie Jenner during lockdown.

On Tuesday, Jenner shared a photograph of herself sporting newly-dyed brunette hair as she modelled a pink corset bustier.

To exentuate her Hollywood glam look, she added bronze-hued make-up, eyelashes and contouring.

Earlier in the day, the 22-year-old showed off her new, long hairstyle days after showing off her blonde and later pastel pink 'dos on Instagram.

Update 24/6/20: Kylie Jenner has finally bit the bullet and gone platinum blonde after months of sporting caramel-toned locks in lockdown.

On Tuesday June 23, the 22-year-old shared several photos on Instagram of herself in a Gucci bra with blonde hair before a night out with friends in Los Angeles.

'Last night,' she captioned the first photo to unveil her new look, prompting thousands of comments from her devoted fans.

'BLONDE QUEEN IS BACK [sic],' commented one user.

'Barbie,' added the beauty mogul's friend Yris Palmer.

The decision comes days after models Kaia Gerber and Emily Ratajkowski showed off their newly-dyed platinum blonde hair.

Given Jenner's well-known love of colourful wigs and regular hairstyle transformations, it's likely that her new do is a wig and not a permanent change.

Earlier this month, several US states began to lift stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic, which might explain why Kylie has been able to go blonde during lockdown while the rest of us continue to grow out our roots.

In the UK, hairdressers and barber shops will reopen from July 4, amid a multitude of changes to lockdown restrictions.

Update 19/5/20: Having previously clapped back to online criticism of her 'bronde' hair tone, Kylie Jenner has revealed her true intentions for the caramel hair colour. Yup, she's heading for bleached blonde once again.

Taking to Instagram, Jenner posted a throwback picture of an icy white look she worked a few years ago with the caption, 'Working my way here' complete with a white heart emoji.

Clearly the billionaire is having a bleached blonde moment, recently recalling her iconic Met Gala look where Donatella Versace herself instructed Kylie to wear a platinum blonde bob.

Safe to say, Kylie's current chunky noughties highlights and caramel-hued hair could be on their way to icy white in the near future. Watch this space.

Update 30/04/20: Kylie Jenner might be enjoying several beauty transformations during the US' lockdown but it seems she's not a fan of comments about her grown-out hair colour.

On Tuesday, Jenner responded to a fan who criticised her ‘bronde’ hair tone.

‘Kylie honey, you need some blending on that hair,’ one Instagram user commented on a video of the star carrying her daughter Stormi.

The 22-year-old responded to the message: 'I know b*tch it's been a long day.'



Hours later, the beauty mogul showed off her newly-manicured rainbow nails on Instagram.



Jenner has received criticism in recent days now that she appears to be self-isolating at home with her friend Anastasia ‘Stassie’ Karanikolaou, seemingly ignoring social distancing guidelines stated by the US government during the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant many of us are resorting to DIY haircuts, facial steaming, gel manicures and dye jobs.

And while Kylie Jenner might have stripped back her make-up during the US’ lockdown period in recent weeks, it appears that her hair is the one thing she’s not leaving to chance.

Prior to lockdown restrictions coming into force in March, the reality star shared several photos of herself on her Instagram account with ‘bronde’-hued hair, fitted with extensions, that cascaded down her back, and styled with a centre parting.

The look was in stark contrast to the mother-of-one’s usual jet-black locks that she occasionally changes up with the help of multi-coloured wigs and extensions.

At the beginning of April, however, the 22-year-old starred in an Instagram Live alongside her best friend Stassi Karanikolaou as part of a #doyourpartchallenge with a very different hairdo.

During the clip, the beauty mogul suggested that the quarantine period had encouraged her to embrace her natural hair while at home with her daughter Stormi Webster.

‘This is the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,’ Jenner said before running her fingers through her bob-length hair which was coloured a light brown tone.

She added that she was embarking on a ‘hair health journey’ and had also ditched her acrylic nails.

Days later, the star shared pictures of herself with her bronde extensions back in, suggesting that she might have tired of her shorter hair. It is unclear whether the photos were taken prior to lockdown or not.



That said, on one picture on her Instagram account – in which Jenner wears a white vest top dress, – the star captioned the snap ‘quarantine bae’, suggesting that she was, in fact, wearing her hair long during the health crisis.

But, that all quickly changed.

On April 20, photos emerged online of the star paying a visit to her friend Karanikolaou, wearing no make-up and her natural shoulder-length brown hair tied back in a chignon. Confusing, much?

Six days later, the billionaire shared a series of photo of herself wearing a white cropped T-shirt with her long bronde hair cut below the bust.

Hours later, she shared a photograph of herself with noticeably lighter hair, which appeared to have two highlighted strips at the front to frame her make-up free face.

As a result of Jenner’s constant hair transformations, we presume that she's either been styling and dyeing her hair herself during quarantine, or might have had some help (perhaps courtesy of hair stylist Jesus Guerrero?).

It is unknown where Guerrero is staying during lockdown in the US but on April 8, he shared a series of photos of Jenner with long bronde hair.

‘I miss glamming so much!!’ he wrote, tagging Jenner in the photo.

When it comes to Jenner’s siblings' beauty during quarantine, Kim Kardashian West has been wearing long, black extensions while her sister Khloé has been sporting long blonde locks.

Earlier this month, Kardashian West appeared in a virtual interview with Jimmy Fallon and revealed that her youngest sister had stepped up as her make-up artist for the occasion.

'I'm in my mum's glam room,' the mother-of-four said during the clip.

'Kylie did my make-up and my hair. I don't have anyone to do it and I'm not that good, so she, like, did all my make-up. And that's the first time I've seen her, 'cause the whole family is distancing.'
