In honor of her 19th birthday, Kylie Jenner decided to change her hairstyle into a bold head of fiery red cornrows, flaunting the look in one of her standard sexy snaps. While the hot red hue might be a new hair color for Kylie, the controversy surrounding her style is not. Kylie has been slammed many times by fans who accuse her of culturally appropriating cornrows, a historically black hairstyle. Despite this, Kylie continues to wear the braids.

I can't tell if people are more upset that Kylie Jenner's hair is bright red or that it's in cornrows— Candace Lowry (@TheCandaceLowry) August 10, 2016
When is Kylie Jenner gonna stop with the cornrows— nasa. ☾ (@nahseeyaa) August 10, 2016
If you're curious whether or not the vibrant color is a permanent addition to her look, it is highly unlikely. Plenty of Kylie's dramatic looks have come courtesy of lace-front wigs, and we believe this is another one of those moments. Check out another one of her birthday snaps below.
