First off, I virtually dyed my hair pink. I was impressed at how real it looked around my roots.

There was also the option for an ombré look. This was less subtle and hard to see in the screen because of the reflection.

Some couples do face masks together. Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian…cut each other’s hair?

On Friday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 42, posted a photo of a chunk of her long dark brown hair lying on the floor to her Instagram Story. “Haircuts by @travisbarker,” she wrote over the snap. 

Kardashian has yet to reveal if Barker, 45, chopped off her real hair or just an extension, so we’re patiently waiting for the hair cut reveal.
