Kourtney Kardashian is “not ok” for a reason that many mothers can undoubtedly identify with – her son’s new haircut. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to social media to show off five-year-old son Reign’s new look, and it's a drastic change. As fans of the reality star probably know, Reign has been sporting long hair for a long time. Well, no more.
Wow, that's certainly a different kind of look for Reign! Kourtney Kardashian’s youngest son with Scott Disick is now sporting a super-short hair-do. In case you're not incredibly familiar with what Reign looked like before, Kourtney’s Instagram page holds the key. Back on May 14, Kourtney posted a picture of Reign donning his then-super-long hair. Check it out:
With that in mind, you can imagine how jarring it must be for Kourtney Kardashian, though her post does not elaborate on why Reign decided to finally forego his long locks. Have all of the changes going on around him inspired him to make some of his own? As someone with hair well past my shoulders, I can attest that cutting it off would be a huge decision.
Kourtney Kardashian has never been one to hold back, and it's not entirely clear if she likes her son’s new haircut. In fairness, it is a significant change for her, too. Her post says that she is “not ok.” If Kourtney doesn't like it, I would imagine her putting it in bolder terms while being considerate of her son’s feelings. In contrast, Kim Kardashian once told her sisters they looked like “clowns.”
Of course, Reign is five, so changing things up is part of growing up. Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans will have to see if Reign’s new look is featured when the show returns and, if it does, it won't be the only change to hit the long-running series.
It's the height of summer and, if Reign wants to enjoy a cooler hair-do, more power to him. I would imagine this might be his first haircut, so the change has to be more than aesthetic for his mom. He's Kourtney Kardashian’s youngest child, and a new hairstyle (especially one that's a first-time change) is always an emotional milestone at that age.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians will return as one of this fall’s premieres on E! in September. The show will eventually have to make do without Kourtney Kardashian being as prominent of a presence. A premiere date is still pending.
