Khloe Kardashian has gone through quite the hair makeover over the past year.
The 31-year-old had been rocking chocolate-coloured locks before switching to an ombre style and eventually debuting her current golden blonde ‘do.
In a collage Khloe posted to Instagram last week, her transition to the light side could be seen taking shape in eight different steps.

She captioned the image: ‘Meet my AMAZING hair colorist today on my app!!! I trust Tracey completely when it comes to my hair, @traceycunningham1!!
‘I’m so proud of this woman and what an incredibly hard worker she is.’
But how hard WAS it for Tracey to take Khloe so many shades blonder? Well. Pretty blimmin’ hard, it turns out.
In fact, not everyone would be able to replicate the Keeping Up With The Kardashian lady’s golden look.
‘You have to be realistic and have patience and commitment. It takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight,’ Tracey tells Allure.
‘Also, as a colourist, I will evaluate whether blonde is your colour. Khloe is very lucky – she’s a beautiful brunette and a gorgeous blonde. Not everyone can pull that off.’

But Khloe is a little different. As Tracey explains: ‘Khloe is the lightest of the Kardashian sisters, and as a child, she had very light hair. Over the years, she went darker and darker.
‘From the beginning of the transition – from her dark brown hair to her current blonde – it took three to four months of gradual lightening.’
So how exactly did Tracey achieve this gradual lightening?
She continues: ‘It was a process of adding highlights, then layering of highlights using Redken Flash Lift Lightener.
‘Of course, one of my goals was to keep her hair healthy and lustrous throughout the process, so the steps were gradual.
‘I used lots of Olaplex to restore the hair bonds and to make sure that when we had our ideal blonde colour, her hair felt as great as it looked.’
And it really does look great.
