The reality show star's signature hairstyle features a center part and cool effortless waves and curls, but Kim Kardashian hairstyles over the years have varied greatly. The key to Kim's gorgeous locks isn't beautiful natural hair, but high maintenance.

Some of the most popular Kim Kardashian hairstyles feature her signature loose waves, but the reality TV star and fashion icon has also tried many straight hair looks, ranging from formal hairstyles to sleek updos.

Kim Kardashian's hair color has had little variation over the years, mostly between black and chocolate brown, but every look is high maintenance according to Kim.

"I always change up my shampoos and conditioners to kind of shock the hair. If you use the same stuff every day, your hair gets used to it and doesn’t give the same bounce and shiny affect. So I switch products every other day. I also don’t wash my hair everyday. It strips the hair of it’s natural oils and can prevent it from growing longer. I also make sure to use an oil at the bottom of my hair every time I shower; like Biosilk or some split end mender. It really helps! If you are also laying out in the sun or going to be in the pool, condition your hair while you are laying out. It looks wet like you were just in the pool but moisturizes it and protects it from the sun!", the brunette beauty explained.
