Khloe Kardashian can't style her own hair.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star's thick 'bronde' mane is usually looked after by a personal hair stylist but she won't be able to take Jen Atkin with her on her trip to China, so Khloe was put through her paces by Jen in a Facetime tutorial so she can look great while she's in the Far East.

Khloe posted a video of the lesson on her website and took to Instagram to upload a photo of her straightening her own locks.

The accompanying caption on Instagram read: ''See, who ever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?!!! By @jenatkinhair Guys, I've created a monster #FacetimeHairTutorials #KardashianBeautyHair (sic)''

In a Twitter post she confessed she has always been hopeless when it comes to caring for her own hair.

She tweeted: ''Seriously didn't know how to do my own hair until @jenatkinhair taught me (sic)''

A video clip of another style schooling posted on Twitter shows Khloe with Jen getting face-to-face tips.

In the clip, Khloe takes a seat in the salon dressed in silk pyjamas as Jen stands dutifully by and attempts to teach her straightening basics.

Reluctant to take up the tongs, Khloe says: ''This is like a dangerous thing, so dangerous. Will I burn myself?''
