Kylie Jenner isn’t wearing wigs, extensions, weaves or acrylics during self-isolation

Kylie Jenner is a self-isolating icon. Seriously, props to her, to Taylor Swift and to Ariana Grande. They were three of the first big-name celebrities to tell their fanbases to stay the f–k home and isolate early in the coronavirus crisis. Kylie has been isolating for a month now, and she’s been taking that time to go somewhat natural. No more wigs, no weaves, no extensions. No acrylic nails either.

Kylie Jenner is going au naturale while social distancing amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. During an Instagram Live alongside her best friend Stassie Karanikolaou as part of the #doyourpartchallenge in partnership with DoorDash, Kylie, 22, revealed that she’s been rocking her natural hair while at home.

“This is the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,” Kylie said while running her hands through her bob-length hair, which she colored dirty blonde. The makeup mogul previously showed off her natural hair on her Instagram Stories on Thursday.

“I’m going on a hair health journey during quarantine,” Kylie continued, explaining that she’s been doing all kinds of hair masks and is using argan oil. Jenner also revealed she’s not wearing acrylic nails. “I feel so uncomfortable [about my natural nails] I don’t know how to type on my phone anymore because I usually type with the flats. My nails didn’t even need to be taken off, this is just such a godo time to take your hair out, nails out, go no lashes, we’re so natural Stass.”

[From People]

I mean, sure, frame it as a choice that people can make rather than a necessity, which is sort of what it is? Almost every hair salon has closed down temporarily, and while I haven’t been paying attention to the nail salons, I imagine they’ve suspended operations for a while too. But I’m 100% behind people making some crazy grooming choices during the quarantine. Hecate dyed her hair blue! I’ve been letting my grey roots come out, just out of morbid curiosity, although I do have some regular brown-black hair dye around. I’ve heard people are growing out their eyebrows too. Let it all hang out! Also, Kylie legitimately looks great with that cute little natural bob. So much better, right?

    She still looks fake

    • Lolo86lf says:

      For a Kardashian or a Jenner little make up means 2 layers of foundation instead of the regular four layers.

    • Jules says:

      all I see is bubble fish lips

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ Julie : Yeah, “natural” to her means hair dye and a trout pout with artificial crap injected into her lips.

    • FHMom says:

      Those jacked up lips, my god. How does she kiss her baby with those?

    • Drea says:

      Well it’s going to take a while before all those fillers dissipate.

      Then we’ll truly see if she’s really self-isolating

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, her face looks like a rubber mask. it’s creepy when I see any of those K or Jenner women’s face “in motion” (I use quotes because MOST of the face doesn’t move). They all look like they’re wearing rubber masks…the only parts that move are the lips and the eyesballs.

  2. Justme says:

    Still getting fillers, though…

  3. minx says:

    Maybe she could read a book, too. Just a thought.

  4. Nev says:

    So much better!

  5. hindulovegod says:

    My first thought was that she is still doing a lot of augmentation. But, it’s Kylie, and any movement toward self-acceptance is a good thing. She hasn’t had the best role models.

    • Fleur says:

      “any movement toward self-acceptance is a good thing” YES! totally agree, specifically regarding Kylie. The other Kardashian/Jenner sisters jumped into plastic surgery when they were adult enough to understand it, and the longterm implications on their health and psyche.

      Kylie had her face completely reconstructed/recreated when she was still a child and her brain and self-worth were still forming (truly, wtf Kris Jenner for letting her do it at 16). I truly can’t imagine the psychological damage of that as she moves into knowing herself better in her 30s and 40s.

      So I’m cheering on Kylie, especially regarding any form of “natural” “self-acceptance”, even if it’s only accepting her own nails and her own hair. Small steps. It starts somewhere. I was happy for her when she got some of her lip fillers dissolved a year ago (not sure how long that lasted, but she tried!). She’s a pretty and very young woman and doesn’t need all the makeup. Hopefully she’ll start to see that too.

      • Some chick says:

        The sad part is that the makeup only works when you are young and pretty anyway.

        Once you get older, less is more. IDK how Dita does it. Much less KatVD. But then, both of them have got a much bigger budget than most.

        Not to mention retouching/photoshoop/filters.

        But, hey, baby steps!

      • AnnaKist says:

        Hi Fleur. Last night, I was reading an interesting essay about politics/music, written by the singer of my all-time favourite band. I didn’t pay attention to a photo included in the essay until I had to scroll past to continue reading. I wondered why, of all people, he included what I then realised was an old photo of the Kardashian-Jenners. When I say “old”, Kylie looks to be about 10 years old. I had a good look at all of them. Leaving the youngest two aside, the other sisters were already adults, and wow … the changes. It’s easy to see what Kylie might have looked like, too, had she been part of a less self-obsessed family of older women.
        For a trip down memory lane, here’s the link. The essay isn’t bad, either…

        https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/bad-religions-greg-graffin-politics-music-users-guide-1952701

        I think regular people will do the regular grooming things during their isolation, but these ladies are obsessed with their appearance, and I don’t believe that their daily routines are going to change that much, and people who look at their social media will likely confirm this. They might not be going out, but they are still being see, and that’s a very big thing to them.

      • alexc says:

        Why would there be movement towards self-acceptance when every modification to her face and body seems to earn her lots of money. She is the ultimate commodifier – a product to be consumed.

  6. Lawcatb says:

    Too bad she still has those clown lips.

  7. Belli says:

    The short hair is cute on her.

    And hey, if it gets people staying home I’m all for it.

  8. Tammy says:

    Still using every Instagram filter under the sun. I wonder what she really looks like. I like her hair that length though.

  9. North of Boston says:

    ” “This is the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,” Kylie said while running her hands through her bob-length hair, which she colored dirty blonde. ”

    So, she’s *NOT* wearing her natural hair after all… she’s wearing her own hair colored a different color, without extensions, wigs.

    Good on her and others for staying at home and encouraging their fans, followers to do the same. If they change one person’s mind about going out and mixing with other people, they could be indirectly saving lives.

  10. Sarah says:

    Au naturel in full makeup. Okay girl.

  11. MD says:

    au naturel? LOL.

  12. Lightpurple says:

    “Go no lashes” Except she is wearing fake lashes in every picture

  13. CROWHOOD says:

    Just something to consider: nearly every comment on here is kind of nasty or snarky. Imagine how hard that must be for her as a person.

    • Melissa says:

      I agree with you to an extent. Then I remember this is a family that actively courts negativity and disgust, the whole any publicity is good publicity trope. I doubt any comment can do a worse number on her than that family did, hence the obscene amount of surgery before age 20.
      Most of us remember the lies – the shot glass lips, the over-lined lips, the period boobs, dissolved lip fillers, just do some squats etc. I find myself fresh out of sympathy.

    • Sarah says:

      The only Kardashian-Jenners I have any empathy for are the minor children.

    • Kelly says:

      I’m no Kardashian fan, but I do think there is a drop of hipocrisy in the way they are so criticized for being vapid and superficial, when there’s nothing these internet dwellers love more than criticizing women for their looks. People always talk about how living around the K’s has turned Kylie into this plastic creature, and that played a big role obviously, but let’s not act like all these comments about Kylie being the “ugly duckling” of the family and the “homely one” of the Jenner sister were completely inoffensive.

      Again – I’m no Kardashian fan, but if our society weren’t as sexist, vapid and superficial as it is, they wouldn’t have become a thing. The Kardashians aren’t the culprits of superficiality in our culture – they are a product of it.

    • emmy says:

      I’m also a little shocked. She’s not my cup of tea or rather, what she’s selling isn’t. But at least she’s been spreading the right message to her considerable number followers. Of course natural means something different to her. But there’s really no benefit to her going completely makeup free with a crazy head of hair. I’ve been at home for weeks, I still do my regular stuff when I work. Some people might consider that vain or dumb.

      • Melissa says:

        If I believed she took her own nails off, did her own hair, make up and lighting etc. for this little PSA , I would absolutely agree with you. The cynical bitch in me is pretty sure she has a full on glam squad and professional crew doing these “natural” posts.
        So I’m not buying the message.
        It could also be that I just don’t like them and am projecting, I can own that.

      • emmy says:

        It’s a possibility but she can do her own makeup, we’ve seen her do it. And nails aren’t that difficult either if you have been doing it for years or have watched someone give you a manicure. She uses a filter as well so it’s absolutely possible she did this herself.

    • Léna says:

      I agree with you also to an extent. I posted the first comment on this article. She is fake: body, face. Her entire family is fake. But they are pushing the idea that they are natural and that their lips, butts and breasts are real and perpetuate a ideal to young women out there that is not achievable without money, a lot of money. Everything they post is filtered at best, otherwise heavely Photoshopped (even with all that plastic surgery!). When I see my 12 years old sister hating her face without any Snapchat filter , it makes me sad and what they are doing is sickening to me. They are the worst product of what the society is offering in my opinion. And I wish they could have been successful without hurting and tweaking themselves like they did.

    • Babadook says:

      I agree with you. She’s not my thing, but it’s a bit rich for a bunch of readers of a feminist site to jump straight to her appearance for critique all the time. Also, she was a child when her sisters got famous – she has grown up watching them be judged on their appearance and seen them reap the benefits of looking the way they do – this is the reality she was raised in.

      • SomeChick says:

        Her appearance seems to be all she has to offer. What else is there to comment on? It’s the entire focus of her own post.

        The apples don’t fall far from the tree.

        That said, I am rooting for Kim to continue with her law studies, to pass the bar, and to continue her activism on behalf of incarcerated people. She might just turn out to be the best of the bunch. I am not a fan – but she’s getting people out who should not be in there in the first place. Gotta respect that.

  14. Lol says:

    All that posing, patting down hair and preening. It’s so idiotic and irregular, like a nervous tick or something.

    • Jules says:

      isn’t it bizarre?!

    • AnnaKist says:

      She is obsessed with looking perfect, and cannot control the compulsion to constantly touch and check that everything is perfect. I think she lacks so much self-esteem, because sadly, grew up in a family that didn’t bother with teaching self-acceptance, and had the money to “fix” every perceived imperfection. She simply continues doing this, but since the inside was never fixed, she won’t ever be happy with the outside.

  15. Lucy2 says:

    The idea of anyone in that family using the word natural is laughable, even unfortunately this very young woman. I feel bad for all the physical changes that were pushed on her at an early age, but she’s leaned into it now too.

    Also, holy makeup.

  16. Joanna says:

    I had my acrylic nails painted a bright red last time I went to the nail salon. I kinda want to take them off but I will just have weak nails underneath so I’m trying to leave them. I’m gonna be looking real rough soon. I use semi permanent dye on my hair, that’s fading out so my gray hairs are showing, oh well. It’s worth it to stay healthy and keep others healthy.

    Thanks Jerusha for the do it yourself mask info. I used it to make my first mask.

    • FHMom says:

      I’m looking rough with you. My hair will soon be 3 colors — some grey, dark brown and caramel balayage. Oh, and it’s curly and could really use a shaping. I’m going to look like a shaggy dog by the end of this. I wish I had the forethought to have it colored my natural dark brown so that I could at least attempt a somewhat dignified grey look, but no.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Ooooooooh, shaggy dogs are sooooo cute!

        Im in Australia. We are pretty much doing what you guys are doing, but… At first nail salons, spray tan planes, massage centres, gyms etc., were shut down, but our PM said people could see a hairdresser for 30 minutes at a time. ??? People started telling him that no visit to a hairdresser takes less than 30 minutes, so now, hairdressers are allowed to operate, which I can’t understand. They get physically closer to a client than a nail artist, and the ones around me have been wearing masks for years, due to the acrylic dust when filing with their electric drill files. My best friend is a hairdresser. She runs a salon a couple of days a week in a huge retirement home/hospital. Some of her clients are not healthy, as well as being elderly. Two weeks ago they shut down the three salons, but last week told her she could come back to work. Apart from that, we’re all getting used to things, except the abuse nurses and doctors are copping from some Covidiots ad coronamorons. The supermarkets have introduced special shopping times for essential workers only, and special delivery protocols fr the elderly and/or disabled, who can’t get to a supermarket or miss out on essential items.

        Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

    • Yup, Me says:

      Yeah, I got my nails done right before everything and I was considering a deep blue but since I was also unsure of my schedule and when I’d be back, I got a pale nude color, instead. I’m so glad I did. The woman next to me got super long acrylics painted bright yellow. I’ve been wondering how many she has left.

    • minx says:

      I always had the worst nails, thin, splitting, raggedy. CND Solar Oil has been miraculous. It takes awhile, but so worth it.

      • North of Boston says:

        + 1 on this

        I don’t know what it is or how it works, but it really works wonders.

        I’ve got a couple of nails that split, have always split, always do. My mother has the same splitting nails on the same fingers so it must just be something handed down? But in any case, the ONLY way they ever get under control, so I don’t have to cut them to the quick to keep them from splitting bed to tip, catching on everything and pulling apart, is CND solar oil.

        I may have also used it on my lips in a pinch during a very cold dry winter, and it worked nicely to keep them from chapping.

        One caution, if you put it on your nails and then put gloves on, make sure your gloves have a decent lining, or put those moisturizing gloves on before you put on your regular gloves (like leather driving gloves). Otherwise, whatever dye is in your gloves will glom onto your fingers and you will not be happy (not that that ever happened to me or anything ;) )

  17. MrsRobinson says:

    It’s crazy to me that a Kylie fan account has more than 1 million followers.

  18. Scal says:

    My local nail salon has done a few free drive up kit days for removing your nails. Bottle of acetone, cuticle pusher, buffer and nail file. Smart move on their part.

    And then you have women in my local mom group asking if there’s anyone that will come to their house to do their nails and then getting annoyed when everyone calls them out. 🙄

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      Military spouse groups on FB are great for this kind of entertainment. Some of these women just don’t get it and I always have my popcorn out for those “Who will come do my hair/nails/lashes/brows?” posts. Yeah, I’m easily entertained but I’ve got nothing else to do but laundry and homeschooling, when I’m not at work.

    • ME says:

      Do their nails for what? You’re at home, and for God knows how long. Why the f*ck do you need your nails done ??? I just don’t get some people. Plus at a time like this, don’t you want to have very short nails so it’s easier to wash your damn hands ???

      • Sarah says:

        People I know are getting panicky about their lash extensions and eyebrows. It’s kind of sad as others in the friend group have lost their businesses but go off about roots I guess, Jessica.

    • lucy2 says:

      OMG! Some people are do self centered, and stupid.

  19. Allergy says:

    The Kardashian-Jenners and their plastic, narcissist, ultra consuming lifestyle seems so old-fashioned now, like something weird from the last century.

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      I agree. From a bygone era. Now, more than ever, it all seems so ridiculous.

    • Jules says:

      So true. The inequality of wealth is mind-blowing. They are not part of the problem, they ARE the problem.

  20. kellebelle says:

    Oh good for you! Turn a thought to people working on the front lines, to people who have lost loved ones, to people who will lose their apartments, their businesses. Think of the suicides, and all the people and businesses/institutions that will suffer, you disgusting, air-headed blow-up doll.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      Tell us how you really feel! LOL But seriously, I am saying the same thing.

    • eto says:

      Ok but not everything can be doom and gloom.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        Not everything can be doom and gloom…I am with you on this-don’t get me wrong,my first thoughts and prayers are absolutely with all those who are dealing with actually having coved 19,to those who have lost someone,to our medical and other essential workers.
        And I can go crazy thinking about the many who are without work,food,and other essential supplies and just how so many will struggle to keep their homes,cars,etc.
        I had to reschedule breast reconstruction (breast cancer two years ago)it sucks,but I realize it’s for the best although my current implants are causing me pain.Still not the biggest thing right now.

        Then I think about the much less important stuff-I miss running errands,and am thinking about how bad my hair looks,my eyebrows…and I’m pretty low maintenance and an introvert,but I still miss the gym.
        I also think about my daughters friends who are HS seniors and won’t have their normal prom,graduation,and the ones who are still needing to decide on college options.
        My daughter won’t probably have a normal *fun*summer before she starts her senior year in the fall,like stupid stuff-will pools be open,can we go to the beach or an amusement park.
        Personally I think it’s fine to think about the frivolous things as long as we all keep it in perspective.
        Stay healthy everyone

  21. Veronica says:

    Lips looking pretty fresh, though. *sigh*

    I can’t imagine what growing up in that family would do to your self esteem, much less being on camera all the time. How could you possibly be comfortable with yourself.

  22. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Good for her but how about drawing attention to all the people who are REALLY suffering right now? Going without hair, nails, and lashes (*cough*they’renotherreallashes*cough*) are serious first-world problems. That whole family is vapid.

  23. No Doubt says:

    She sure did get pumped up with extra lip fillers though. Jesus. The body dysmorphia most of the Jenner/Kardashian clan have is jarring. All but Kourtney and Kendall look like blow up dolls.

  24. Chaine says:

    If the lockdown lasts long enough she will be talking about her natural sized booty, too.

  25. L4frimaire says:

    I can see the resemblance to her mother without all the fakery.Lips are starting to deflate as well.

    • swedish chef says:

      You see Kris, I see she is starting to look like Tori Spelling. So much abuse happening to that young face.

  26. ReginaGeorge says:

    Please this girl is still using IG/Snapchat/Facetune filters or whatever apps she got, AND she is wearing layers of makeup (contour/highlight).

    As a single mom who wasn’t receiving any child support and living in one of the most expensive cities in the world, I had to learn to do things myself. Mom was an amateur hair dresser back in the day so I already knew how to do a good blow out, roller set, flat/curling iron styling etc. I dye my own hair close to my natural color only to hide some greys (which grow out white) and my hair looks like I have platinum highlights for now, but I always keep a box handy and will likely use it once this is over.

    I also purchased a gel nail kit with the uv light and also have two kits of “pop-on” nails in case of “emergency” lol. But I’m letting my nails grow out for now and give myself bi weekly mani-pedis and keep a foot rasp in the shower which I try to use daily to keep my heels soft.

    I’ve been doing my own makeup since before those YouTube totorials, back when you had to go to the M. A. C counter and purchase a lip liner or something to get a pro tutorial from the MUA lol

    My life prepared me for this lol

  27. lunchcoma says:

    Eh. I’m going to say good for her. Whatever her issues are, she’s trying to set a good example. And if her fans want to stay at home, put on makeup, and play with Instagram filters, that’s okay too.

  28. Lara says:

    Also she’s not self isolating. Kim said she went to her house and did her make up for her.

    • ME says:

      I saw that on Jimmy Fallon. Kim said she’s not good at doing her own hair and make-up so Kylie did it for her.

  29. Kate says:

    I think she looks great with the bob, super cute. I just got my highlights done a few weeks ago but was thinking it really is the perfect time to do a peachy pink color while I’m not in the office. Did it in law school and loved it but can’t really go to my office like that. Maybe once my highlights grow out I’ll do a stay at home kit haha

  30. ME says:

    I wonder if her staff is still working? Her nannies, chefs, maids, assistants. Would you really want all those people in your house right now? Does Kylie or anyone in her family know how to cook, clean, or take care of children all day lol?

  31. Jaded says:

    Thank Goddess I’m low maintenance. I do my own manis/pedis, don’t get my hair dyed and can go 3 months without a cut. I’ve been trimming Mr. Jaded’s hair as needed.

    • Dee Kay says:

      I feel this way too. I’m so happy I don’t have to worry about my “roots showing” — I went salt-and-pepper early, and have never dyed my hair, so my roots have always showed, pandemic or no pandemic!!!

  32. Reece says:

    I think she looks really pretty without/less crap on her face and nails.
    Let’s see how she looks in a few more weeks when the fillers deflate. Plastic surgery isn’t considered essential in CA. lol I tried to be less snarky.

    I wish the over lined lip would die!

  33. Lizzie says:

    Kylie has always looked cute with a bob. Glad she sent out the message to her followers since young people seem to be the most resistant to staying home.
    I have never been against plastic surgery if you can afford it and it seems she had a pretty good doctor.
    I have zero understanding how this family has been on tv for all of these years but out of all of them she is the least annoying to me.

  34. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Kylie doesn’t go to salons. Stylists come to their homes so if she REALLY wanted to maintain her hair and nails she probably could.

  35. B says:

    Good for her

  36. Grey says:

    It would be so great to see a trend of natural beauty come out of all of this!

  37. Bailie says:

    @ Grey :

    I would love to see a more natural beauty trend coming out of all of this too!

    If those long ugly fake scary nails in rainbows of color would be gone forever I would celebrate! ( like Cardi B….)

    I’m so glad that I always focused on very healthy eating habits, drinking simple clean water, getting a good night sleep, enjoying a bit of physical activity every day and paying attention to having great skin, good hair, toned body and not smoking, not drinking alcohol, not covering myself with layers of make up to hide behind.

    It really has come handy many times and during these difficult days also.
