Blazing red and straight, jet black and cut close, and honey blonde and chocolate brown spirals are only a few of Miami-bred rapper Trina’s hairdos. The artist has been delivering hot bars over a 15-year span, and she’s also been a style inspiration in urban culture. She is a trendsetter, always one to embrace her curves in the most luxurious fashions, and play with her makeup and mane looks.
We caught up with the vet MC to get the ins on her mane matters. Check out our exclusive.
Longevity is rare in the entertainment industry. What do you think has been the key to your successful career through the years?
For me, it is always about my fans first. I am honored to have the support that I have gained throughout my career. Their support is my motivation daily. Additionally, I try to ensure that my music continues to evolve. I work daily even when it is not noticed. I am excited to be working on my new album, new ventures and expanding the Trina brand continuously in 2013. Lastly, having support from outlets such as yours throughout my career is also a blessing.
We’ve seen you rock a lot of hairstyles over the years. What’s currently your favorite way to rock your hair?
I love my hair best in a ponytail, straight or messy type [of] look.
Do you have any favorite hairstylists?
Definitely! Angela Meadows out of Miami has been my hairstylist for years. She cares for my hair even while I am in extensions or trying new colors. I love to try new looks, so it is great to have a hair stylist who knows how to care for your natural hair as well.
What five cosmetics are always in your bag?
My five must-have cosmetics are Natura Bisse’ Diamond White moisturizer, YSL concealer, Nars lip gloss in Angelika, my K’AOIR signature endorsed color lipstick entitled #Showoff, and Neutrogena makeup remover wipes.
