Love or loath her… there’s no questioning the (colossal) star power of Kim Kardashian West. A style chameleon in her own right, this mama-mogul has transformed her appearance into a full-fledged brand, with more than a couple of million followers, dollars… and business ventures to show for it. From her hourglass proportions (cue the corset) to her carefully crafted beauty personas, this chic is one trend-starter who just won’t quit. To celebrate Ms. West’s 39th birthday, we trace her unbelievable hair-volution to date. Get ready.
Fresh faced and ready to build an empire. A young Kim sports her infamous raven locks, 90’s brows and that trademark smile.
