Chloe Kim Snowboarding Hair Interview

Meet Chloe Kim, Snowboarding's 17-Year-Old Prodigy

For 17-year-old Korean-American Chloe Kim, snowboarding was always a passion. The Mammoth, CA, native always felt tied to the slopes, and she's dominated the field as a woman and a teenager: she was the first athlete to win two X Games gold medals before the age of 16 and the first woman to pull off back-to-back 1080s. Needless to say, her star is rising, and while she was too young to compete in Sochi's 2014 Olympics, she's taking names in Pyeongchang, South Korea, this year.

Chloe is changing the face of snowboarding most certainly due to her young age, but also with her personality-driven aesthetic. Her hair is never the same color for long, as she loves going to the salon and testing out vibrant blues, fuchsias, violets, and more. "I feel like a lot of people feel like snowboarding is really tomboyish. That is not true!" said Chloe. "A lot of my friends love fashion . . . me and my snowboarding girlfriends go shopping when we can," said Chloe.

Recently, Chloe was named the first-ever North American ambassador for Korean cosmetics brand Laneige.

We had the opportunity to interview the superstar last year, before she qualified for this year's Olympics. Check out the full interview to learn more about Chloe, and let us know your favorite part of the interview in the comments section.
