Whoa: Kim K. Looks Just Like Kylie With Her Candy-Colored New Hair

If it was 2015, and you asked us which Kardashian sister was most prone to switching up her standard hair color, we'd confidently answer "Kylie," because the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family has tried almost every singe hue, experimenting with various shades of blonde, pink, teal, dark green, and mint. She had successfully made hair color her "thing," even launching her own line of hair extensions. Anyone remember that episode of KUWTK when Kim was upset Kylie had blue hair for her wedding?

Yeah, Kim was known for being much more consistent in her hair color choices, sticking mainly to her original raven-colored tresses.

Now that it's 2019, however, we might have to amend our previous answer. That's because Kim has been sporting some pretty unusual hair colors as of late (for her, at least). Over the course of the past few years, she's opted for icy platinum, bubblegum pink, and most recently, fiery red hair. Today she unveiled her latest hair color experimentation, and we were stunned to see that she looks like the spitting image of Kylie with a head full of mint green waves. While it's not the color we expected to see her wear anytime soon, we must say, we're obsessed with the result.

Here she is in all of her mint green hair glory. Kardashian posted the image with a succinct and wordless caption: the mermaid emoji. That's apt, considering her full, cascading waves look like they've come straight out of some modern interpretation of The Little Mermaid

We're confident that this is a wig, and not an actual dye job, since—at least in recent photos—her hair is much, much shorter than the waist-length locks she's sporting now. We're also confident that she has taken some inspiration from Kylie's past hair color experiments, since it's almost the exact same shade as the one Kylie sported at a red carpet event all the way back in 2015. The only difference is in the styling and length as Kim's full and wavy waist-length hair differs from Kylie's cropped cut.

Here's Kylie's take on mint green hair, which she debuted at a movie premiere in Los Angeles in 2015. While her hair is much shorter and much less wavy, it certainly appears to be an exact match as far as the color goes. Notice, however, that Kylie kept her dark roots peeking through at the top; Kim's hair is mint green through-and-through. This is more evidence pointing towards the theory that Kim is wearing a wig. 

Kim tagged her longtime friend and hairstylist Chris Appleton in her Instagram photo, although he hasn't posted anything on his account (at least not yet). We'll have to wait and see if this color is as short-lived as her rendez-vous with fiery red hair, or if it sticks around a bit longer, like her bubblegum pink color did. We're hoping for the latter. After all, this color is fun and eye-catching and certainly different from her traditionally dark locks.
