Turns out the fringe wasn't her idea. "It was my idea," hairstylist Peter Savic, who works with all three Kardashian sisters, tells Us Weekly. "I've been suggesting bangs to her for a long time and also to lighten her hair. The picture on Instagram isn't that accurate! It looks much nicer in person. Kourtney looks great with bangs."
