Even though Kylie Jenner has toyed with rainbow hair colors in the past, trying Little Mermaid red, aqua blue, golden brunette, and Barbie pink (among others), thanks to her extensive wig collection, recently she’s been keeping things pretty consistent. She’s made XXL hair her signature over the past couple of years but kept the color close to her natural shade of dark brunette.
But, for her stint on the front cover of former French Vogue editor in chief Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book magazine, Jenner decided to take things in a very experimental direction, getting playful and serving up a whole bunch of ’90s-inspired lewks.
Even better, Jenner—along with her glam squad: hairstylist Jesus Guerrero and makeup artist Ariel Tejada—has been sharing all the behind-the-scenes deets from the shoot to bring us up to speed.
One super out-there look saw Jenner debut a red skunk-stripe hair color, complete with micro bangs. The stripes were introduced like chunky highlights to nod to the throwback Y2K trend that Rihanna, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Billie Eilish have all previously tried also.
Meanwhile, like her sister Kim, who’s been rocking a Pammy updo and ’90s lip liner, Jenner appears to have taken some inspo from Pamela Anderson, pairing her rebel hairstyle with razor thin brows and grungey nude lined lips.
She also created a darker gothic rendition of the lip, with black lip liner encircling a pop of blood red lipstick in the center of her lips, which she wore with a diffused halo smoky eye.
And keeping the renegade theme going, she chose a tough, choppy mullet for another look, worn with an oversized, beaten brown leather jacket and cowboy boots.
One of the most playful looks from the shoot saw Jenner wear a three-tiered necklace made out of her Kylie liquid lipsticks (and nothing else underneath). To keep her hair out the way, she wore a loose, messy updo with her makeup kept neutral, other than her famous statement pinky-nude pout.
While it may have only been a wig, we love to see Kylie Jenner enjoy experimenting with her hair and makeup, although we’re still working out what occasion we have coming up that would work with skunk-stripe hair….
