Getting a radical haircut may be a watershed point in people’s life, ushering in a new you, but we think Kim Kardashian is regretting her decision.
The 42-year-old unveiled her new hair on Instagram while promoting her current Skims bra collection, but the style was met with criticism from admirers.
Kim appears in the video wearing a bodycon black t-shirt and leggings and sporting a brand new black chin-length bob hairdo.
This was a significant departure from her customary long lengths or the platinum blonde fans had been seeing recently, and it caused quite a stir online.
Immediately, comparisons flew, with many joking that she had ‘borrowed’ the appearance from her sister Kourtney, amid squabbles between the sisters.
Kim hasn’t shared any more photos of her new hair, leaving admirers to speculate whether it’s a wig or a permanent style change, but the internet seems divided.
‘Her bob is TUCKED,’ said one fan in response to the now viral haircut, while another said: ‘Idk the bob kinda ate I fear.’
‘I genuinely just burst out laughing at this like there’s nothing wrong with this pic she just has a bob but I can’t stop laughing for some reason 😭😭,’ said a more sympathetic viewer.
‘Now why does she look like she’s about to lure 5 unsuspecting families into a chocolate factory,’ joked a bob-hater.
The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory references plagued the replies, with a fan asking: ‘Why did she use a Willy Wonka wig.’
Okkkk Lord Kimquaad! https://t.co/u08Ws1L0zn

‘Run for your life Augustus Gloop,’ joked someone else.
Other amusing but unnecessary analogies were Lord Farquad from Shrek, Pleakley from Lilo and Stitch, Joan of Arc, and Mr O’Hare from The Lorax.
One deep-cut read: ‘Why does she look like she’s about to embark on an affair with Alan Rickman and ruin Emma Thompson’s Christmas?’
Of course, Taylor Swift fans had something to say about the latest victim of what the internet has dubbed the ‘f**k ass bob’.
Swifties made numerous jokes about the American Horror Story actress being prepared for 1989 Taylor’s Version, despite the fact that Taylor had a bob during the original era.
‘Kim chopping her hair off for 1989 tv is so real,’ laughed one fan.
‘She’s in her 1989 tv era with this haircut, I fear,’ tweeted another.

Kim’s new appearance has caused quite a stir on the internet, but it’s not the first time she’s gone for a sleek bob.
Kim wore a somewhat longer version of her current hairstyle during her notorious physical battle with Kourtney in 2020 over her work ethic.
Kourtney has worn short hair for years, and the two have lately fought about Kim’stealing’ Dolce & Gabbana from her older sister.
The mother-of-four claimed that Kourtney stole her wedding country and Andrea Bocelli, but the two appear to have reconciled.
The Kardashians’ upcoming season is unlikely to have a huge bob-related disaster, but sadly for Kim, the internet isn’t that forgiving.
