The reality star, who is married to Kanye West, first revealed her casual new ‘do during the stream and later via Instagram while wishing her followers a merry Christmas. “Merry Christmas everybody! Good night!” Kardashian, 35, captioned an Instagram photo of herself with Nori, who also had her hair in matching french braids.

The Kimoji creator also rocked the ‘do for her New Year’s Eve celebration with sister Kourtney Kardashian and stepparent Caitlyn Jenner. “[Peace] to 2015,” she captioned a selfie on January 2.

Last nights vibes!
