Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans and beauty-obsessives alike may have noticed Kim Kardashian rocking a totally edgy, messy topknot lately - something we've never actually seen her sport out and about before...

...but even though we're absolutely loving the change, there is a particular reason behind it!

Mum-of-one Kim divided opinion when she debuted her new 'do (courtesy of hairstyling genius Justine Marjan) in the Hamptons this weekend and her fans and followers took to Instagram to share their thoughts.

"I like your hair like this! It's different to the waves and the slicked bun. Unusual!," wrote one underneath a picture shared by her make-up artist Ariel Tejada, while another said, "Never seen your hair like this! Not actually sure Kimz..."

Kim also received heaps of comments on Twitter and one even prompted a response!

Replying to one of her biggest fans, Myleeza Kardashian, who pleaded with her to keep the edgy look for longer, Kim wrote, "Yes this is my no extensions vibe lol."

Zero extensions? Zilch? Nada?! Well, if only our topknot looked as lustrous sans the synthetic strands - cue the mane envy!

The mixed reviews kept coming in for Kim and her extension-free bun (which we totally rate, FYI!) but isn't the first time she has donned a fuss-free hairstyle in order to keep the styling, weaving and damage to a minimum.

Earlier this year she jumped on the braid brigade (sparking a ha-uge revival, may we add!) all because she wanted to give her hair a break from heated tools and products.

Clever! Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to practise that up-do...
