Who Is Hairstylist Chris Appleton?

You Asked "Who's the Silver Fox Behind Kim Kardashian?" and We Answered

Who Is Hairstylist Chris Appleton?

By now, most of us have seen the photos of Kim Kardashian wearing a dress that left pretty much nothing to the imagination (which made us nervous just looking at it,) but it seems many POPSUGAR readers were more concerned who the "hot guy" behind her in the photos were. "Who's the silver fox behind her?" you asked. "Can we talk about the gorgeous man behind her?" you pleaded.

Well, your wish is our command. The man accompanying Kardashian is Chris Appleton, hairstylist to the stars, creator of the snatched ponytail, and owner of some incredibly handsome grey hair (which has shifted to more of a platinum blonde since this photo was taken a couple years ago). No, he's not Kardashian's bodyguard, but he's equally important as the man behind some of her best hair colour transformations. Trust us, this man can deliver a mean ponytail.

Originally from the UK, Appleton worked his way up through a traditional salon setting, got his degree in hair colour, then went down an editorial hair route before making his way into the celebrity hair styling world. Now he's the go-to hair guy for huge celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez (he was with her for her her epic Super Bowl performance), Ariana Grande, and Kylie Jenner. His signature snatched pony practically gave a POPSUGAR editor superpowers. Ahead, get a closer look at the man himself, plus some of his best celebrity hair creations.
