Kim Kardashian Shows Off Cornrows for Mother’s Day

Back at it again with the braids! Kim Kardashian skipped a luxurious blowout for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8 … and opted for a more fuss-free style: cornrows.

After finishing up a weekend photo shoot in a blonde wig, the mom to North, 2, and Saint, 5 months, with husband Kanye West showed off her new cornrows, which are a traditional African style, on Mother’s Day. They were visible in the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star’s Snapchat story on the morning of Sunday, May 8, where she watched her gift from West, a live orchestral performance in her own living room curated by North. Later that day, she sported the hairstyle while posing in front of a private jet, wearing a white tank top, a form-fitting pencil skirt in the same hue and nude sandals.

Younger sister Kylie Jenner gave her respective followers a better view of Kardashian’s ‘do on her own Snapchat, posting an up-close-and-personal photo of the braids separated by clean, neat parts.

After giving birth to Saint in December, Kardashian revealed that she’d be keeping her hair in the protective style for months to let it grow and to avoid putting heat on it. Over the course of a few months, the Kimoji entrepreneur stayed true to her word (for the most part) and even coined her own style, the KKW Signature Braid.
