With Keeping Up with the Kardashians on it’s 15th season, KKW Beauty’s new Classic Blossom collection out now and just being a mom, it’s a wonder Kim even has time to get glam between projects and commitments.

In this issue, we have Kim’s favorite hair and makeup advice just for you! See what the social media’s favorite beauty babe does to keep her hair so picture perfect and her makeup just as flawless. Also take a step down memory lane with as we go through Kim’s best hairstyles through the years.

“No matter what kind of hairstyle I have, I want it to look healthy and shiny. I make sure I don’t overheat my hair and it has to be hydrated, so every night I put Olaplex on it and sleep in it.”

Style Icons
For our 40th anniversary issue, we asked our readers to vote on their favorite stars who constantly deliver when it comes to their hair. The results for our “Style Icon” poll varied from pop star Bebe Rexha to outspoken model Chrissy Teigen. We’ve also included a timeline going back to Sophisticate’s start in 1978 and beyond of our favorite celebrity hair muses, from Lynda Carter to Christina Applegate to Hilary Duff. Check it all out in the November 2018 issue!

Bebe Rexha
Bebe Rexha is fast becoming a fan favorite for her signature platinum blonde cuts and curls. The “Meant To Be” singer is constantly switching up her tresses from short, angled cuts to long, sensual waves. Bebe is definitely one to watch for white-blonde hair inspiration.


Jennifer Lawrence
Of course, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence made the cut have you seen her on the red carpet? The X-Men: Dark phoenix actress is a mane chameleon when it comes to her antique-gold blonde strands. Here Jennifer stuns with her bone straight hair parted down the middle and brushed behind her ears for a simple, yet elegant look.

Chrissy Teigen
Top model and social media’s favorite guilty pleasure Chrissy Teigen knows how to rock her chocolate strands. Whether she’s wearing her hair in a chin-length bob, glamourous wavy ponytail or playing around with blonde highlights, Chrissy looks flawless with each hairdo!

Hot Hair

You can never have enough hair inspiration. For 40 years Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide has been providing that to our readers with each issue. In the “40 Best Looks” feature, we’ve compiled our favorite looks from this year’s issues just for you. Change your hair up for the holiday’s or go into the new year with a fabulous new look right from the issue.



Short Chic
This flirty auburn cut from Tchip Coiffure in France is the perfect cut for anyone’s who’s looking to go short, but still wants to maintain some length. Hair is snipped into an eye-grazing fringe in the front, and tapered short in layers towards the back. Chocolate strands are curled in multiple directions for stunning volume.


Blonde Sweep
Blonde is always the way to go! Pair glossy butterscotch strands to a chic pixie cut and you’ll have a hairstyle that’s guaranteed to get people’s attention. Fringe is brushed into the face and snipped into a full, side-swept bang blending effortlessly back into the short style. Give this look by Sean Rocco Salon in Charlotte, NC a try for your next holiday party.


Texture Time
Give your hair the body and definition it desires with this ‘do by Camille Albane in Paris, France. Golden-blonde hair is parted on the side and snipped into long, shoulder-length layers. Tresses are curled into defined waves and tousled for extra volume.

Star Hairstyles


Jenna Dewan
World of Dance’s Jenna Dewan has been killing it with her short haircut lately. The actress and dancer looks flawless with her espresso strands cut into a chin-length bob. One side is parted and tucked behind the ear, while the other side frames the face. Gorgeous!


Kirsten Bell
One of our favorite blondes Kirsten Bell looks fabulous in whatever shade she’s wearing. Here the Frozen 2 actress looks chic with her golden-blonde hair with cocoa roots snipped into a shoulder grazing bob, with one side tucked behind the ear for a sophisticated finish.


Amber Heard
Aquaman’s Amber Heard is no stranger to fabulous hair. The actress loves to wear her blonde strands as effortless as possible, whether styled into messy waves or tossed over her shoulder in subtle curls. Amber takes her beach-blonde mane and mixes it with a casual, Old Hollywood vibe for stunning results!



Kaia Gerber, Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid
Top models Kaia Gerber, Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid all embody low maintenance model glam. Kaia keeps it simple with her chestnut strands parted down the middle and falling over her shoulders, while Gigi goes for a similar vibe with her butterscotch blonde hair brushed back behind her ears. Kendall glams it up with her espresso strands pulled up into a mesmerizing updo.
