Do you keep up with the Kardashians? Here at Byrdie HQ, we keep up with Kim Kardashian West's hair. And it has been quite the journey. The middle Kardashian sister has changed her hair color, length, and style more times in the last decade than we probably will in our lifetimes. She's pretty fearless too. It seems no hairstyle is off the agenda, except, it would seem, anything too short. With so many hairstyles to choose from, we're taking you through Kim's hair evolution via our favorites. Let's start at the beginning, shall we?
