Thanks to Kendall Jenner's status as a top model, she may be the most chameleon-like out of all her very famous family members — and that's saying something, considering her sisters are no strangers themselves to changing up their looks at the drop of a hat. But when it comes to her hair, she's traditionally stayed fairly loyal to her rich, deep brown locks. Until this season, that is. She notably served major blonde inspiration earlier this year during London Fashion Week, and now Kendall Jenner's new ombré hair color is proving the star isn't afraid to play with her hair color, too. And this shift could be enough to convince you to do the same.
The supermodel showed off her warm new strands in a post on her Instagram on Nov. 29, while she was relaxing with her big, famous family for Thanksgiving. The photo, which Jenner captioned "coziest weather", put the honey-brunette hair at center stage as she twirled in front of a stunning cloud-swirled landscape in a sleek black-on-black turtleneck and pants ensemble. A polished pair of black kitten-heels finished off the svelte look for time spent with her loved ones.
And though this hair color change up is much more subtle compared to her bright blonde locks (which she debuted when walking the runway for Burberry back in September), the look proves that a relatively small tweak to your tresses can have a huge impact.
The ombré update seamlessly blends brighter warm honey tones on her lengths and ends with her natural deep espresso brown roots, for an unexpected update to rich brunette hair that's typical for the top model. To show off the new 'do, Jenner kept her shoulder-length strands minimally styled — a look you can probably get behind when it comes to casual occasions spent at home for the holidays.
Jenner's fresh look presents a welcome alternative for those with deeper toned tresses who'd like to take their hair lighter and brighter this winter, without heading into totally bleached blonde territory. Plus, it's a pretty easy color change to maintain, especially when you've got some at-home essentials to use between salon visits. Shop ombré hair must-haves, below.
