Kim Kardashian Cuts Kate Middleton-Inspired Bangs, Not Happy About New Instagram Rules

The Duchess of Cambridge's fringe has inspired the Reality TV Princess's new feathery bangs.

The Internet is reeling with the news of Kim Kardashian cutting bangs. First, it was the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s fringe that rocked the hair world. Now the Reality TV Princess has hopped on the bang-wagon.

The imitation/flattery aspect of this has not gone unnoticed. After all, Kardashian has admitted to being a huge fan of the royal, even praising her penchant for rewearing her outfits to (gasp) more then one event. Although she may have been a bit miffed that the Duchess reportedly returned some Kardashian Kollection clothes that were sent to her. And understandably so.

Yes, it's true that Kardashian tried bangs a few years ago. But to be perfectly honest, they were blunt cut (trendy at the time) and they just didn’t work.

But this time, she went to an expert, Chris McMillan (Hel-lo, Jennifer Aniston’s hairdresser) who also created "The Miley," his most controversial cut to date). MacMillan did a bang-up (sorry, we’ll stop now) job of creating soft layers that will also blend nicely with side or center parts.

The happy 32-year-old posted a collage of photos on her Instagram account along with the caption, "Fun shoot today @mrchrismcmillan He just can't control his scissor hands! #bangs."

However, not all is sparkly Christmas lights in Kim’s world. She’s not one bit happy about the new Instagram ruling.

With Facebook having purchased the social photo sharing site, comes new rules about their ownership of any and all photos posted to their site. They can also sell the photos to others, which could mean your images being used in ads or promotions without your permission or any payment.

She tweeted: "I really loved Instagram :-( I need to review this new policy. I don't think it's fair."

You can see why Miss K  -- and her business manager – would not be happy about this. Will celebrities get special passes? Probably. Don't they always? 

In light of the controversy, Instagram has announced they will be rewriting portions of their terms to be more clear about what happens to user photos, including Kardashian's. 

What do you think?
