Kim Kardashian has finally put to bed rumours that her new pink hair look is nothing more than a wig - taking to her Instagram stories to confirm the truth. "You guys, if I see one more person say I’m wearing a wig and think that I’m lying, you are just… I just… I don’t get it,” she said on Wednesday. “Like why would I lie about wearing a wig?” The star, who is currently on a visit to Japan with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, has been rocking the bold pink look during her travels around Tokyo.

Kim has debuted a striking pink hair look

We can forgive her fans for assuming Kim had opted for a wig, however. Her mum Kris Jenner recently rocked a blonde pixie hair piece, and younger sister Kylie is known to change up her hair looks using wigs. But Kim's hairdresser - Chris Appleton, who created the pink colour - has also taken to Instagram to confirm the look is in fact the real deal.

"Thanks for all the PINK LOVE guys!" he posted next to a picture of the reality star, going on to reveal the products he used for the look. "For all you wanting to know how we got the pink formula, I used Manic Panic mixed with conditioner. The conditioner dilutes the Manic Panic so we could achieve a perfect pink! The key to this look is getting the right pink for your skin tone! Try colored pink sprays before you commit!"

Kim recently thrilled fans with the first photo of her new daughter Chicago, who was born via a surrogate on 15th January this year. The proud mum took to Instagram to post a sweet snapshot of her six-week-old baby, which was liked almost nine million times in the space of a few hours! At the time of the birth, Kim wrote on social media: "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister."
