We're still positively buzzing about Kim Kardashian's stunning new blond 'do and can't get over just how refreshing it is to see her with lighter locks.

The new mom stepped out today to debut her fabulous new hair color and cut, compliments of colorist George Papanikolos of the Andy Lecompte Salon and stylist Chris McMillan (yep, Jennifer Aniston's mane man!), respectively.

Papanikolas opened up and shared some insider information with us on the major hair transformation, which he performed flawlessly.

He tells us that the reality star has wanted honey-blond locks for a long time, and set up two appointments with her to work his magic at Kris Jenner's house with the whole family watching.

"It was scary for me because she gets photographed a lot," he told us.

In the end, the dye job came out beautifully, and proved that blondes just might have more fun, after all!

And while Kim's loyal fans are still excitedly weighing in on whether they love her new look or not, Papanikolas confirms to us that one thing's for sure: Kanye West is totally supportive of the change. 

"He loves it! He was a big cheerleader for her to go blond," the colorist tells us.

Aww! Now that's we like to hear.

Even though Kanye was in Europe while Kim went from sultry brunette to a sassy blonde, we know he was rooting for her all the way.
