Kim originally took to Snapchat to reveal her new sharp do, which she then showcased on Monday night (1 August) at the Knc Beauty launch in Los Angeles (above).

But it seems we were all fooled, because the little trickster's hair is still very much long and wavy, NOT short, sharp and lob-like!

"Everyone is saying I chopped my hair, but it's all an illusion!" Kim wrote.

"Chris Appleton did this look and I'm so obsessed. He cut the wig into a lob and then made it SUPER straight and blunt."

Well, all we have to say is that is some wig. How natural does it look?

Chris Appleton is officially a hair (and wig!) genius.

The end.
