We have always loved how real R&B vet Kelis keeps it — especially when it comes to her anthemic lyrics and psychedelic hair choices This weekend, she gave us another glimpse into her cool girl world that almost all of us can relate to when it comes to getting our ‘dos done.

The style icon took to Instagram Friday night while prepping her eyebrow slay for her birthday festivities. While she talked technique, most of us were focused on her head full of old school pink and black sponge rollers.

Many of us remember this no-heat option as young girls or for vintage sets, but in this age of ever-trending curling tools and contraptions, it was hard not to take note. Roller sets have definitely become a “thing” to help naturalistas achieve long-lasting stretched and defined curls, but they require extra time to dry. It seems Kelis experienced this first hand when she later showed off a retro crown of side-parted pin curls.

“So this is the “do”after the rollers,” posted Kelis. “But I didn’t let them dry long enough cause I was late lol.”

Though she didn’t have time to let them dry overnight, we still think she nailed the look. We also noticed that Kelis, who is normally known for large or loud (or both) hairstyles, has been keeping it rather low key with her newly cut bob. Never one to keep it simple, she revealed an edgy addition to the look,.

Watch the clip below to see her peekaboo heart-shaped (and dyed) undercut.
