Nearly 10 years ago, Kylie Jenner inspired a cult following of fans when she changed her display name on social media to “King Kylie,” to match the “King Gold Chains” nickname her then-boyfriend, the rapper Tyga, went by. This was the era of Tumblr, of heavily filtered Instagram photos, of Kylie Cosmetics lip kits, of Jenner dying her midnight-black locks into exciting colors like blue, green, platinum—and pink.

Now, in the year 2024, Jenner seems to be reminiscing about that period of her life by revisiting a favorite hair color. In new photos posted to Instagram, the mom of two debuted a feathery, cotton-candy pink hairdo, cheekily captioning the selfies, “hiiiii remember me.”

Though we don’t know for sure whether the ’do is Jenner’s original locks or simply a wig, fans went crazy for the brand-new look in the comments.

“KING KYLIE IS BACK???????😭😭😭😭,” one user wrote.

Another added, “KING KYLIE. IM DECEASED.”

One fan even requested a specific style from Jenner’s King Kylie era: “Nah we want blue ombré King Kylie back 😂🤌🏻.”

Speaking with Harper’s Bazaar for our March 2020 cover story, Jenner reflected on the massive influence her dyed hair inspired a decade ago, after being asked about the moment she realized how famous she had become.

“I always knew my family was a big deal, but me, solo, probably around when my pop-ups started,” she said. “Or when I started dyeing my hair blue and cut my hair off, and then everyone started dyeing their hair blue and cutting it off. And I was like, ‘Whoa.’ I realized what an influence I had. I was probably like 16.”
