Hair Crush Wednesday: Nicki Minaj Goes From Wigs to Natural Styles

Nicki Minaj natural hair

Nicki Minaj’s hair story has amassed a long career of its own despite it’s premature presence in Hollywood. Any color, style, shape, size, Nicki has tried it. She gave life to wigs and a story to hair, and now the artist that turned heads for her intricate locs is doing the same with a toned down version of her look.

On the Queen Barbz quest for corporate and urban takeover, her new hairstylist Oscar James dished to Cosmo about her recent transition. “I usually bring things that are a little more stylized because I feel like that’s who she is, but, surprising even to me, she’s been leaning toward even more natural. She wants to do less.”

Showing her fans and critics she’ll always be fresh and reinventing in all her ventures even if we have to say bye (for now) to the wig wonder we grew accustom to.


As she preps for her first movie debut, The Other Woman, and her back-to-the-roots new album The Pink Print, we honor her newly stylized coif. Because whether you love her new look or opt for the old, there’s no doubt she’s our hair crush Wednesday.
