(L-R) Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Saint West during play between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Lakers in the first half of Game Four of the Western Conference First Round Playoffs at Crypto.com Arena on April 24, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son, Saint West, revealed his new hair as he celebrated his 8th birthday.
Known for his curly black hair that he usually wore long or in braids, Saint surprised fans Tuesday with a shaved black hairstyle featuring a longer curly platinum blond top, as seen in photos published by Page Six.
The young fashionista watched the Los Angeles Lakers face the Phoenix Suns alongside Kardashian while rocking his distinctive new hairdo.
The inspiration behind Saint’s dramatic hair change is unclear, with the outlet suggesting it could be a nod to one of his favorite soccer players, Neymar, or possibly his mother’s rumored beau, Odell Beckham Jr. Both athletes previously sported similar cuts and colors.

In addition to his eye-catching hair, Saint donned a yellow Lakers jersey over a black Shaquille O’Neal T-shirt and shorts while seated courtside with his mom.
Kardashian also served a fashion moment at the game with an all-black ensemble and edgy wraparound shades.
The Skims founder marked her son’s birthday with an Instagram tribute Tuesday, expressing her astonishment at how fast Saint is growing up.
She wrote, “My twin Sainto! How are you 8 years old already! I just love you so so so much!”
Saint, who recently made headlines for a playful gesture towards the paparazzi, has demonstrated his admiration for Neymar in the past by dressing up as a zombie version of the soccer star for Halloween.
Kardashian further fueled Saint’s soccer enthusiasm by organizing an overseas soccer tour for him and his friends, documented in a recent episode of the family’s Hulu reality show, where they explored London and Paris.
Notably, West, despite his busy schedule, has also shared quality father-son moments with Saint, bonding over their mutual love for soccer.
In October, as reported by Page Six, West took Saint to a game in Italy, showcasing the family’s ongoing connection with the sport.
