Is Kanye West Using Frank Ocean and Kid Cudi's Hairstyles?

We have no idea why Kanye West went full blonde then multi-colored with his hair.

As somewhat of a fashion icon, West seems to be trying something new. However, we can't help but to feel he may be taking cues from Kid Cudi and Frank Ocean.

In the past Cudi has had some pretty wild hairstyles including a multicolored look and in more recent times a blonde dye.

What's even more interesting is the fact that Cudi was suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts, which caused him to seek help.

West recently went through his own ordeal with a mental breakdown and emerged with this new hair following his slight treatment.

Meanwhile, Frank Ocean released an album titled, BLONDE earlier this year and had also been sporting a colored hairstyle similar to that of West's all blonde look.

Of course, the argument can be made that Chris Brown could be a part of this argument as well since he was one of the artists to bring back this Dennis Rodman-esque trend.

That being said, given the close nature in which West worked with Cudi and Ocean, we can't help but to think he may be patterning his moves after them. At the end of the day, Kanye West is his own individual but it is certainly hard to ignore these obvious similarities.

It would be pretty awesome to have a collaboration with these three artists, however, that is wishful thinking to say the least.
