The year isn’t over yet and neither is Janelle Monáe’s epic year of slayage. The singer/actress literally had all eyes on her this past Tuesday during a press run for her new film Hidden Figures. She appeared on Today and Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon rocking textured space buns covered in googly eyes. Yes, googly eyes!

The avante garde look was created by none other than her go-to hair Macgyver Nikki Nelms (the women behind Solange’s epic A Seat At The Table cover and Kelly Rowland’s banging bob cut). Playing off of her red carpet slay at the Critics’ Choice awards, Nikki pulled out of her bag of magic tricks to cover Janelle’s hair – arts and crafts style – with black and white googly eyes that had our eyes popping and social media swooning! 


The singer teased the look throughout the day via Instagram with cute captions such as “👀 KEEPING THAT 8th EYE OPEN” and “👀👀👀”EVEN WHEN I’M SLEEPING I KEEP 20 eyes open.”


The diva is no stranger to the eclectic, especially after wowing the world with gold roped pigtails just last week, but this look may just be her most inventive yet!

Are you feeling it?
