Mollie King swaps her trademark bob for a lengthy Kim Kardashian-style braided updo

Former The Saturdays singer Mollie King has long been a source of inspiration when it comes to mid-length hair looks. Her blonde tresses frequently give off a “Sienna Miller” tousled look, but are always trimmed to skim just above her shoulders.

Now, in a beauty switch-up, the BBC Radio 1 presenter is channelling Kim Kardashian instead of Sienna for a lengthy ponytail look.

Showing the style off to her 950k Instagram followers, Mollie writes: “She’s all plait”.

She also tags in her hairstylist, Lisa Davey, who is the mastermind behind the look. A quick scan through Lisa’s grid shows a few other braided styles she’s created on Mollie, including a look that features trendy double braids. To extend her hair, Lisa uses Milk and Blush clip-in extensions, which retail from £100.

Mollie’s braids could be compared to those frequently worn by Kim Kardashian – another big fan of an extended pony. However, Kim has also just had a beauty transformation of her own, debuting bleach blonde hair at last week’s MET Gala.

Following the red carpet appearance, Kim has expressed concern that she was worried her hair could fall out after the whopping 14-hour long bleaching session which took her from dark to a Marilyn Monroe blonde.

In an Instagram clip, Kim can be heard saying to her sister Kylie: “Oh I've been doing this for 10 hours already. I'll risk getting my hair to fall out."

The mum-of-four then turned to Kylie's four year old daughter Stormi and made a comparison to Disney's popular Frozen: "My hair's gonna be blonde like Elsa!"

Mollie and Kim aren’t the only celebs to have had hair transformations in the past few days. Across the pond, Selling Sunset sensation Chrishell Stause takes a leaf out of Mollie’s mid-length book for a new haircut which saw her swap her long tresses for a below-the-shoulder chop.

The 40 year old’s hair now falls just past her shoulders rather than being the cascading tresses we’re used to seeing. It also seems a little cooler and darker compared with the more vibrant blonde style we got used to seeing on our TV screens.

We love it when change is in the (h)air.
