The brunette, who is currently dating US rapper Kanye West, tweeted to let her followers know she'd been a victim of a pair of scissors.

She posted: "Fun shoot today @chrismcmillan He just can't control his scissor hands! #bangs" alongside lots of snaps of herself in the hairdressers chair.

And the socialite showed off a much shorter look - with lots of choppy layers and a sweeping fringe.

Celeb hairdresser Chris McMillan, who was famed for his Rachel crop on Jennifer Aniston in the 90s, and who has also done Miley Cyrus' hair, also posted a snap of Kim on his own Twitter.

He tweeted: "shawnsssr BANGS!!! @kimkardashian #love #fringe #photoshoot #sexy @ Pier 59 Studios"

Meanwhile Kimmy K might not be sharing so many pictures like this in the future after she stated her anger at the news that Instagram may be making money from its users' pictures.

She posted her annoyance: "I really loved Instagram :-( I need to review this new policy. I don't think its fair."

And in other news likely to make Kim Kardashian annoyed, her ex-boyfriend Nick Cannon has opened up about why he broke up with the reality star.

The rapper, who is now happily married to Mariah Carey, says he split with her after she lied to him about her sex tape with singer Ray J.
