Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son Saint debuts bleached hair transformation on 8th birthday

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son, Saint West, showed off a new look for his 8th birthday on Tuesday, rocking freshly bleached hair while at a Los Angeles Lakers game with his mom.

Saint — who normally sports his curly black hair long or in a braided style — debuted a shaved black look with a longer curly, platinum blond top as he watched the Lakers play the Phoenix Suns.

The bleached ‘do could be a tribute to one of the soccer fan’s favorite players, Neymar, or perhaps mom Kim’s rumored beau Odell Beckham Jr., who both have rocked similar cuts and colors.

Along with his eye-catching hair, Saint sported a yellow Lakers jersey over a black Shaquille O’Neal tee and shorts as he sat courtside with the “Kardashians” star, who was clad in all black with edgy wraparound shades.

Saint’s mom also posted an Instagram tribute for his birthday on Tuesday, writing “My twin Sainto! How are you 8 years old already! I just love you so so so much!”

Plenty of Kim’s fans and loved ones sent birthday love to the 8-year-old, like Scott Disick, who wrote, “HBD Saint!!! 🍰” and Paris Hilton, who left a heart-eye emoji on the post.

“Aww his haircut looks so cute! Happy birthday” a fan wrote, while another added, “baby neymar hair.”

One fan wasn’t into the hairstyle, however, commenting, “8 and you bleach his hair,” prompting another to defend the look.

“he’s a soccer fan🤣🤣 growing up there was always little boys around me bleaching hair it’s not a big deal,” the fan wrote.

Saint — who recently got scolded by his mom for flipping off the paparazzi — has also paid tribute to Neymar (whose full name is Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior) in the past, dressing like a zombie version of the soccer star on Halloween.

The Skims founder even took Saint and his friends on an overseas soccer tour, bringing the kids to London and Paris in a trip documented in a recent episode of their Hulu show.

As for dad Kanye West, he’s also bonded with his son over soccer, bringing him to a game in Italy in October.

Perhaps Saint can get a selfie with his hair inspiration soon.
