An Apple(ton) a day keeps the frizzies at bay! Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton — who has worked with Kim Kardashian for years — appeared on the Thursday, June 29, episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, ready and willing to glam up the Skims founder for her driver’s license photo.

“Today we are with Kim, and we are getting her driver’s license picture ready,” Appleton, 40, explained on the show while at the California DMV with the reality star, 42. “It’s a big deal because you have to live with it for a long time … Too many people live with driver’s licenses that are not cute.”

Kardashian, fortunately, had her A-team at the ready. In addition to Appleton — who teased her platinum blonde locks into a crimped style — she also had makeup artist Ariel Tejada by her side.

“No matter where Kim goes, me and Ariel have got her back,” Appleton shared.
