Remember the days when Nicki Minaj’s hair alternated between bubblegum shades of pink, green, orange, blue, teal, multicolor, and platinum?
How could you not??
But lately, Her Minajesty has been rocking more mature, toned-down tresses and makeup. In fact, we don’t even remember the last time we saw her hair anything but blonde!
The singer recently explained her change of style to Glamour, saying:
"I just wanted to tone down, and I met the man who changed my life—[hairstylist] Oscar James. He was recommended to me by the beautiful Tyra Banks. He really understands hair. Hair doesn't have to be overprocessed and fried, even when you apply color. I've never been happier. With makeup, I started using more natural tones. I never thought I'd love nude lipstick, but I really do. I just feel sexier. Less is definitely more."
And even though Nicki totes rocked her rainbow of hair colors back in the day, looking back at her former hair choices only reaffirms her new conviction.
When asked about her most regrettable hair look, Minaj said:
"How much time do you have? Haha! We'd be here all night."
While we enjoyed the countless hairstyles and shades of yesteryear (below), we adore her current look even more.
Good choices all around, gurl!
