Kim Kardashian has said sayonara to her signature dark hair -- for now, at least.

On Friday afternoon, the brunette bombshell, 31, gave her millions of Twitter followers a glimpse at her stunning new hair color, showing off sun-soaked, caramel-colored locks.

Kardashian turned to celeb hair pro George Papanikolas of L.A.'s Andy Lecompte Salon for her drastically different 'do.

"I softened her natural black hair color to a Dark Chocolate with Joico's Base Breaker, which lightens the hair one level with a little warmth," Papanikolas tells Us Weekly. "Then I used balayage highlights to add rich chocolate pieces around her face and at the ends of the hair."

After all was said and done, "The result is a low-maintenance gradation of color from Deep Dark Chocolate to Luscious Milk Chocolate ends," Papanikolas says. "The tone on tone hue is the most sophisticated choice for brunettes."

The reality star, for her part, seems thrilled with the results. "Hair done, nails done, everything did," and "Blonde hair don't care," she wrote in the captions accompanying the photos she shared.
