Reality roundup: Kim and Kyle Richards

Introducing Reality Roundup, where each month we indulge in our favorite reality TV shows and select our favorite hair looks of the moment. Want to be a reality star? Now is your chance to look the part. This month it’s all about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Kim and Kyle Richards… How do we begin to describe this feisty sister duo? The former child stars turned Beverly Hills bombshells (and Paris Hilton’s aunts, don’t forget), light up the silver screen every week during this season’s juicy The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo. Whether the sisters are jet setting to Vegas, attending a charity function or arguing in a limo, their locks, both blonde and brunette, are always camera ready. Enhance your inner 90210-diva look with the tips below.

Kim Richards: Flirty blonde

Being Goldilocks never felt so good

Wash. While there are endless shampoos for blondes, we love UNITE’s Daily Shampoo because it cleans your hair with moringa seed extract to keep the beautiful blonde color like Kim’s hair.

Color. Clairol’s Nice ‘n Easy Born Blonde is the easiest way to transform your hair to Kim’s golden color. If your hair is already a yellow color, we recommend opting for a new, medium golden blonde using Clairol’s Sunflower shade.

Shine. If you’re looking for holiday-ready hair, try Alterna’s Caviar Glitterati Sparkling Champagne Spray to create locks that not only have a beautiful shine, but a fragrant scent to really stand out like Kim (for the good reasons).

Kyle Richards: Powerful brunette

Create your own fierce brunette look

Shine. If you’re trying to capture the look of Kyle’s shimmering locks, try Bed Head’s Brunette Goddess Shine Spray. A little bit of this goes a long way while you’re prepping for that brunch with girlfriends or a night out with your man.

Color. Looking to go brunette, but don’t have the 90210 wallet? Frederic Fekkai’s Salon Color Kit will give you that golden brown mane Kyle shows off every episode. Just a reminder, pick a brown shade that is about two shades from your current hair color.

Wash. When we really want a good clean ‘do, Tresemme’s Color Thrive Brunette Shampoo really washes hair and leaves it silky and smooth like Kyle’s locks. The best part? If your sister, mother or roommate is a redhead, she can use the product too. (No need to be a catty housewife for this one… share!)

Apply these hair tips and you’ll be ready for any glamorous shopping trip, brunch, party, charity function… or girl fight.

Don’t forget to tune in to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Mondays at 9 p.m. EST.
