This week I decided to choose Nicki Minaj’s curly blonde hair for my Celebrity Hairstyle of the Week. I really really like Nicki Minaj. I recently downloaded her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on iTunes and I just love it! It is honestly the best album I’ve listened to in a loooonnng time.
A Little About Nicki Minaj:
What I like about Ms. Minaj is that she is just crazy enough to set her apart from the crowd, but not over-the-top crazy. Unfortunately, she comes with a lot of controversies. Lyrics about her alter-ego/split personality (Roman), Mitt Romney and Lil’ Kim bashing have all added fuel to her fire.
My boyfriend thinks that “she just makes weird noises in her music,” which is partially true, but she is also an amazing rapper. I think rap is the best when they can throw together big words (especially words you don’t hear in every other rap song), give it substance, and make it sound good. Nicki Minaj does just that. I really loved her first album, and all the songs she did before that, but her new album is just so fun and upbeat. The song, “Pound the Alarm” (which the main article picture comes from) reminds me of laying in the tropical sun, drinking a cocktail.
Nicki Minaj’s Curly Blonde Hair
So back to the main topic: Nicki Minaj’s hair. I’m pretty sure she wears wigs or weaves most of the time, but it doesn’t matter to me. I love it. Her hair is always so crazy and fun, and I particularly love her hair in her Pound the Alarm video. I would imagine it is either permed or curled with a curling wand.
The top is pulled back into a poof-bang type quiff. The key to her hair is volume, volume, volume. It may be really teased-up, and really curled, or she could just have a lot of extensions in her hair. Whatever it is, I love it.
Watch the rest of her video! It’s amazing!
