Love ’em or hate ’em, you can’t deny that the Kardashian-Jenner family has immense influence over our culture. Besides their entrepreneurial skills, the women in the family are also known for setting trends left and right, even inventing a few of their own! Don’t fact check this, though. Just trust us.
Kim, Khloe, and Kylie have all been seen sporting this unique hairstyle that they invented and no one else. Before the Kardashians, you could only do one or two braids. Now, there are cornrows, which consist of several rows of tight braids that sit very close to the scalp. We didn’t look into this too deeply, but try out this funky style yourself. We have no idea what cultural appropriation is!
Where does the word “Bantu” come from? Who knows! Khloe probably made it up! This ‘do, which consists of several small buns placed around your head, was debuted on Khloe Kardashian’s Instagram with the caption “Bantu Babe.” You too can be a Bantu Babe, even though we have no idea what “Bantu babe” or “erasure” even means!
Last year, Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the clan, graced the cover of Teen Vogue sporting dreadlocks, a brand new hairstyle that Kylie herself invented. No need to look up the origin of this style because it all starts with Kylie (at least that’s what our style editor said at lunch)! This look proves you’re a rebel who doesn’t care what anyone tells you, like, “This is not okay – why are you doing this?”
In an interview earlier this year, Kylie stated that she “started wigs” in reference to her ever-changing hairstyles and signature line of extensions. Of course, she’s right. She did start wigs! Please believe me when I say that 19-year-old Kylie Jenner did in invent the beauty trend of replacing your natural hair with other hair. Please do not Google it after you leave this page.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan have a level of power and influence unmatched by almost any other family, especially in the world of beauty and fashion. They are constantly breaking new ground, but don’t look too deeply into that. Please just believe us. Please.
