The Kardashian sisters are no stranger to getting a dramatic makeover, particularly when it comes to their hair. However, Kourtney Kardashian Barker has always been firmly on the dark side when it comes to her hair colour, sticking to her trademark dark brown locks despite embracing a range of different styles over the years, including a recent short bob during a Valentine's Day trip with husband Travis.

However, now the eldest Kardashian-Jenner sibling has followed in the footsteps of sisters Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian by deciding to go for a lighter hair transformation, ditching her glossy dark hair for an icy platinum blonde bob.

Kourtney shows off a new hair look

We wonder if Kourtney was inspired by Kim (pictured) for this new bleach blonde look

Kourtney showed off her new hair in a series of snaps on her Instagram on Sunday while on a trip to Las Vegas with her husband, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. Teaming her new look with a black leather lace up corset top and oversized leather jacket, the founder of wellness brand Poosh didn’t even caption the photo, but still garnered plenty of positive attention from followers and celebrities.

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer commented a series of flame emojis, whilst fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons posted heart eye emojis underneath it. Fans were also quick to celebrate the dramatic change, with one commenting: “I’m obsessed”, while another said: “Away to dye my hair blonde”.

Other followers likened Kourt's new hair to a look her younger sister Kim has previously worn, with one asking: "Kim that you?"

Kourtney then shared the inspiration behind her new look on her Instagram stories, with two major influences behind the icy bob, including her 17 year old self. She shared a photo of teenage self with a short blonde shoulder length cut, complete with a very 90s middle part, writing “17 year old Kourt” over the image, before sharing a picture of her new hair in the next post, saying: "strikes again".

She then posted a second photo of herself at 17, saying :”1995 bored during finals, convinces someone to dye my hair blond to procrastinate”.Apart from occasionally rocking a blond wig as part of a costume or theme, this is the first time Kourtney has taken the plunge and bleached her hair, despite sisters Kim and Khloe often rocking blonde hair.

Kourtney hasn't been blonde since she was a teenager

The founder of vitamin brand Lemme also shared some other inspiration behind her look, with a photo of Drew Barrymore from the 90s with an almost identical style, captioning it “my hair inspo courtesy of @addisonraee” and tagging her long time friend Addison Rae.

Clearly loving her new look, it wasn’t long before Kourtney shared a second set of photos of her new hair, this time playing around in front of some Vegas slot machines wearing a latex black skirt, black knee high boots, and a Blink 182 T-shirt in honour of her husband.

The pair were in Las Vegas following surgery drummer Travis had on his hand earlier in the week. Kourtney had captioned the photo with a quote from the Hunter S.Thompson book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – which was later turned into a film starring Johnny Depp – which confused many of her followers, including sister Khloe who commented “I have no idea what this caption means, but I love your hair with a side flip!”

Looks like her sisters are as much of a fan of Kourtney’s new look as everyone else!
