Kim Kardashian Channels Pamela Anderson on a Morning Gelato Run in Italy
Marilyn Monroe isn’t the only blond Kim Kardashian is drawing inspiration from. Almost a month after the star made notable appearances in two of Monroe’s dresses, she was spotted in a Pamela Anderson-inspired messy bun hairstyle. While the entire Kardashian family travelled to Italy for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding, the Skims CEO was spotted in the ’90s hairstyle with a gelato cone in hand.
Kardashian’s loyal hairstylist, Chris Appleton, posted the look on his Instagram. The close-up showcased her hair perfectly parted down the centre and secured in a high bun, accented by face-framing pieces in the front. Her cool blond hair was complemented by her natural, dark-brown roots peeking through, and the silvery undertones of her makeup were continued in her matching grey ensemble. Despite the fact that Kardashian wasn’t attending a specific wedding-related event, her look echoed the rest of the family’s gothic, glam style for the celebratory weekend.
Kardashian’s latest updo isn’t the first time she channelled Anderson. For her appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on March 17, the entrepreneur and reality TV star wore an almost identical hairstyle, also styled by Appleton – except then she wore her natural hair colour.
To achieve the look, Appleton who works exclusively with Color Wow hair products, prepped damp hair with the brand’s Xtra Large Bombshell Volumizer, ($63) before blowdrying. Once dry, Appleton followed with Color Wow, Style on Steroids Texture Finishing Spray, ($53). For these intricate updos, freshly washed hair can be too slippery to stay in place. Adding a texturizing spray will make the style easier to achieve.
