From sleek to on fleek! This mid-length textured style adds more fun, vibrancy and dimension to Kim’s fashion look. Much more appealing than the Morticia inspired black-clad look on the left.

With cooler temperatures settling upon us in Sydney, you’re better off not trying to control the flyaways and curls with pin straight hair, but embracing hair texture in all of its glory! Even the straightest hair has body and the cooler months are the best time to flaunt it.
