The Haute Couture Hairstyles of Nicki Minaj
Back in her more demure days, the up-and-coming rap star opted for raven curls complete with her now signature Barbie bangs. A lover of all things pink, Nicki added fuchsia peek-a-boo streaks at the ends.
Nicki loves her wigs! Often spicing up her inverted bob by changing the color, the intrepid star opted for a faded green bob while visiting the 106 & Park studios. It seems that Nicki can sport any hairstyle, as she looks fabulous in all shades of the rainbow!
11.Bride of Frankenstein
Miss Nicki seems to change hairstyles like most of us change socks and we love her for it! Onstage at the 2010 BET Awards, Minaj channeled the Bride of Frankenstein with an electrifying hairstyle.
The rapper captured everyone's attention when she wore a bright orange wig at the 2010 BET Awards. While Nicki can pretty much pull off any look, we much rather prefer her asymmetrical bob!
9.Pretty in Pink
Nicki continued to stop traffic with her animated style at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Bringing her Barbie alter ego to light, Nicki rocked a face framing bob with matching pink nails and lips.
Never one to follow mainstream hair trends, Nicki sported a rainbow tipped bob for the release of her debut album, Pink Friday. Guess she couldn't settle on one bold color so she opted for them all!
7.Cotton Candy Girl
Upping the ante on her hairstyle antics, Nicki ditched her famous bob all together and managed to surprise us with a high-top fade circa 1992. The cooky rapper put her own twist on it with a bubblegum pink hue.
Nicki gave her funky style a retro twist with a sky-high beehive while on a promotional tour in London. Even with her signature blunt cut bangs, her '60s hairdo proves just how versatile her look is.
It's blue, no it's green, no blond—actually it's all three! Nicki's camouflage printed wig made heads turn across the pond while she promoted her newly released album.
Nicki rocked the stage at VH1's Divas Salute the Troops show in a little Versace dress with bright blue tights and heavy jewelry. The rapper took her hair to new heights with a bleach-blond coif in a unique sculpted shape. Subtle pink highlights gave her tips an extra pop of color.
Niki Minaj was all smiles on the red carpet at the 2011 American Music Awards in an asymmetrical blond bob wig with green tips. Paired with an unique Manish Arora dress, Nicki's look was definitely a standout of the night.
Miss. Minaj never rocks one hairstyle for too long. The "Moment 4 Life" singer showed off her wild side with a teased Afro-pouf complete with a hair-raising black streak. Leopard print spotted bangs framed her face and were perfectly suited for her exotic print ensemble.
Nicki showed off a more reserved side at the NBA All-Star Gala with a platinum blond layered hairstyle. While we love her crazy color combinations and funky wigs, it's nice to see her switch it up for something a little more mainstream.
