What made Kim Kardashian want to dye her hair pink? Apparently, it's been on her mind for a while.

The 37-year-old reality star shared the motivations behind her new 'do in a post via her app

"Ever since I did the CR Fashion Book shoot and wore a pink wig, I thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained. "[Hairstylist] Chris Appleton and I thought about it for a month and then decided to just go for it! Since my hair is blond right now, it was easy to put the pink color over it. I figured now was the perfect timing!"

It looks like Kim's family members are fans of her new look, too.

"North absolutely loves it!" Kim wrote. "She was so excited when she woke up to see I had pink hair. Kanye loves it, too. He thinks it's fun to mix things up."


When it came to choosing the right hue, Appleton picked a shade that complemented Kim's skin tone.

"There are so many types of pinks to try, so it's important that you work with a pink that suits your coloring and makeup to get the right look!" he wrote. "I didn't want to re-bleach her hair, as I want to keep the condition strong—so, the roots worked perfectly!"

But don't get used to Kim's look for too long. Even though she said she loves her hair, Kim also revealed it "might only last a week or two."
