Kendall Jenner is probably the most predictable of the Kardashian-Jenner clan when it comes to hair. Unlike her sister, Kylie what-will-she-do-next Jenner, her locks are almost always a deep shade of chocolate brown. There was that moment during fashion week where she went blonde, and a few haircuts here and there, but overall we can rely on the model for sticking to her glossy dark signature (and can you blame her? She looks beyond).

But in the spirit of holiday change (maybe?), the model has traded dark for lighter – specifically a warm shade of reddish-brown with smudged, dark roots.

The work of colourist Cassondra Kaeding, it’s a subtle but noticeably warmer hue that unsurprisingly looks incredible. It also feels as if Kenny has been building up to this colour, given that over Thanksgiving weekend, she uploaded a stream of photos debuting what looked like a dye job of caramel-toned balayage. Her roots were still dark, but the ends instead were a shade of warm, coppery brown.

Similarly, the model attended a basketball game in Los Angeles last week with friends where her hair was noticeably lighter, broken up with a melange of warm highlights starting about an inch from the roots.

It’s no surprise Kenny, who loves a good ’90s or early ’00s sartorial moment, opted for the new sweet ombre-ish look, given its wild popularity a few years ago. In truth though, the model could have any cut or colour and still look like a walking, talking version of human perfection. But for now, we’re very much into the change.

If warm tones with a root shadow is something on your agenda, be sure to consider upkeep and maintenance. While it is the perfect grown-out, lazy way to colour, bleach can lead to breakage and brassiness. Keep a purple toning shampoo on hand for a weekly refresh, and opt for a repairing treatment in place of conditioner once a week. Olaplex is a great option.
