Kim Kardashian has blue 'mermaid' hair now and fans are obsessed

Oh Kim Kardashian, what will you come up with next? To be honest, after the drama of Khloé Kardashian's breakup with Tristan Thompson, I was beginning to miss the socialite's selfies, but in recent times, she's made our way back to our social media feeds in the best way.

Sharing intimate photos of her struggles with psoriasis and helping out a former convict struggling to rebuild his life, the 38-year-old's showing us a different side of her from the one we're used to. But if you see her differently now, then imagine how much your mind will be blown once you see her new look.

For a while now, Kim K has moved away from her traditional black locks for something a little different: the short bob works for her (whether it's her traditional black or a new blonde), but this time, Kim's taking a couple of pages from her sister Kylie's style book, and I think it works for her, don't you?

As with most things involving Kim Kardashian West, the inside scoop on her new look comes direct to us, hot and fresh, from her Instagram page. For Kardashian fans, this is going to be a bit of a shock; instead of black or blonde, Kim Kardashian has dyed her hair blue. She looks a little bit like a mermaid, doesn't she?

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of the new colour, and judging by the comments section, so are her fans. Instagram user sa.lmankhan6206 said "U look so pretty" and here's @marias_70, who said: "Definitely that colour suits you you look superhot,". While they're not the only positive comments, it wasn't all compliments and heart-eye emojis.

This is, of course, a Kim Kardashian Instagram post.

Here's one from @brianram34, who said: "You do just about anything to be in the spotlight don't you? It's unreal how you and your sisters are cancel your show [sic] I'm getting on with your life and do something else."

It's a mostly positive reaction from folks on the internet, although some people were pretty upset. This is all, mind you, something we've seen before. Kylie Jenner's been rockin' this look for quite a while, starting around three or four years ago.

This is a picture from 2015, but this isn't a one-off hair moment that Kylie Jenner decided to adopt on a whim. Here's Kylie again, but this time from December of last year:

Well, what do you think of Kim Kardashian's new hair? While she doesn't credit a hairstylist directly in her post, Chris Appleton is usually the guy she goes to for all of her hair needs, and she's tagged him in the photo, so it's possible he's the genius behind this new colour.

With so many photoshoots and public appearances to come, it's unclear whether the mermaid blue will be around for very long, but I for one hope we get to see Kim Kardashian rock the look for a little while longer at least.
