Kendra Wilkinson is wrapping up one stage in her life and eagerly diving into the next one with a major makeover — and she’s pulling it off like a champ. The last month has been pretty rough for Wilkinson, who officially filed for divorce on April 5 from her husband of nearly nine years, Hank Baskett. Now, she’s pushing right past the sadness and embracing the good, as she should be.
On Thursday, Wilkinson shared a photo set on her Instagram that showed a very happy Wilkinson sporting a new brunette lob. With the sun shining down on her, she looks so carefree and happy — a feeling also reflected in the photo set’s caption.
“Been wanting to experiment like this for a long time n [sic] here it is. So excited for this change but I’ll always stay true to my roots,” she wrote.
We’re not even gonna pretend Wilkinson’s new hair color is anything other than fantastic. There’s nothing quite like the mood-boosting effects of a mini-makeover.
Since filing for divorce, Wilkinson has been working to maintain some normalcy in her life for the sake of her children. That wasn’t too easy when her dog, Martini, died on Saturday or when her followers attempted to shame her. But Wilkinson has remained resilient through this turbulent month. She’s posted photos of herself hanging out with her two children, Hank Jr. and Alijah, and she’s even posted some cheeky photos of herself getting a little tipsy while playing video games.

Let me just vent for a second. I bust my ass off as a human being. I work, pay bills, take care of 2 kids and love them to the fullest plus trying to take care of myself through it all is a 24/7 job. I don’t know what the fuck some of u haters think u know but you better get your heads checked because your assumptions based on pictures and clips of shows make u straight up delusional. I appreciate the true people that follow me and know who i truly am vs idiots comin in n out making shit up. I’m also talking about people around me too. I’m a lover and a free spirit by nature, not a fighter but lately I’ve been feeling pushed into a corner by judgement and opinions that are 100 false n not me. While people on the internet AND in real life are feeling bad for my kids cuz mama has to work, my kids at the same time are thanking me. I make my sacrifices so my kids can have a life they deserve. I drink to celebrate only and i enjoy my friends. One day I’ll get the credit i deserve for all the hard work i do but til then I’m going to keep doing me. I get it, i shouldn’t care what people think but sometimes I’m human and shit gets to me…. what pisses you off today guys? 😂😜
Wilkinson’s going to be just fine if you ask us, and she’s got the hair — and willpower — to prove it.
