It’s the Vogue interview we’ve all been waiting for. So what is Kim Kardashian West really like?!
So what if it’s freezing outside, we’re still dreaming of summer and getting our bronze on. Here Kim Kardashian shows us how she does her holiday make up in this fab Vogue video.
She’s the ultimate #hairgoals…
…but how does Kim Kardashian get the high shine look?
Here two of her favourite hairstylists, Jen Atkin and Justine Marjan, reveal Kim’s hair secrets.
Regular hair masks
If your hair is healthy, it’ll shine. And while most celebrities like Kim have their hair and make-up done professionally for work, on their days off they rehydrate and repair with a hair mask, says Jen. One of Kardashian's go to's is Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Mask, which is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants that fortify damaged, chemically-treated hair. Buy it here.
Use a T-shirt to dry hair
"Post shower, instead of drying your hair with a traditional towel, gently squeeze out moisture with an old cotton t-shirt so as not to disturb the cuticle layer of the hair," advises Justine.
Controlled heat styling
If your curler or straighteners are too hot, you will singe the hair which will make it appear dull. Justine says: “When styling, I always use tools that won't damage the hair. GHD's irons are optimised at 365 degrees - the ideal temperature that won't blow open the cuticle layer or cause colour fading."
Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Cotton or polyester pillowcases can absorb moisture and be abrasive to hair. Investing in a silk case will help retain your strands' natural shine - and your hair won't get frizzy overnight, says Justine. It’s a win-win.
Some oils — like the OUAI's signature blend of African galangal, ama, and borage oils — can double as heat protectants when you're using hot styling tools. Justine likes to mix oils together to enhance shine.
You can stock up on daily supplements packed with ingredients like B-complex vitamins (such as biotin, cobalamin, and niacin) to help restore shine from the inside-out. Try Justine’s go-to OLLY Undeniable Beauty Grapefruit Glam Gummies, which helps to create stronger and shinier hair. Buy it here.
Repair with Olaplex
One of our favourite products for shine especially for those of you that dye your hair. Olaplex repairs the hair structure on a molecular level while it processes. Kim likes to use it as an overnight treatment and puts it in her hair before she goes to sleep.

With their huge incomes and glam squads on call 24/7 to keep them looking red-carpet ready, it’s no surprise that celebrities are the ultimate #hairgoals.
But there are certain things you can do to keep your hair looking as good as a celebrity.
Here we reveal six celeb secrets to keeping your hair in shape.
Celebrity secret 1: They take their haircare regime seriously - and stick to it
Hollywood stars know looking good is their job so they take their beauty routine extremely seriously. That means regular haircuts and deeply hydrating conditioning treatments.
Secret 2: There are no “off” days
When they’re not working, celebrities still need to look after their image. And that’s why a day off means a day restoring and reviving their hair in a conditioning mask.
This will not only combat the negative effects of constant heat styling but also any chemical damage.
Secret 3: They use heat protectants when styling
Too much straightening, curling and blow-drying plays havoc with hair.
Using an oil or heat spray before styling is the best way to protect the hair.
Secret 4: They take vitamins, because beauty comes from within
Supplements can not only ensure scalp health, they can help hair grow faster and thicker.
Your hair needs vitamin A to stay moisturised and grow (also find it in sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach and kale if you prefer to get your nutrients from food).
Research has also shown that vitamin D could help create new follicles - the tiny pores in the scalp where new hair can grow.
Secret 5: They know how to brush wet hair without damaging it
Be careful what type of brush you use on wet hair, which is at its most fragile.
A wide tooth wooden comb is the most gentle, or even simply run your fingers through your damp hair.
Secret 6: They use wigs and weaves
Whether it’s for a big role, photo shoot or special event, hair pieces are commonplace in the celeb world - and they are a great way to change up a look and have fun with your style.
