Nicki Minaj ditched her blonde wig and brought back her dark hair for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. The singer posed on the red carpet with waist-length locks and classic cat eye makeup. Get the details on her VMAs hair and makeup, ahead!
Nicki Minaj, 33, looked better than ever while attending the VMAs in NYC on August 28. Usually sporting an array of colorful wigs (and most recently, a layered blonde look), for the VMAs, Nicki was back to her dark hair.
Wearing a sheer blue dress with cut outs along the chest, Nicki’s hair was so long, it skimmed the cut outs that were at her waist. Styling her hair sleek and straight, Nicki wore her dark locks parted down the center and with lots of glossy shine.
For her makeup, Nicki opted for a clean look. Letting her crisp cat eye and long lashes do the statement-making, Nicki chose a neutral gloss with a hint of shine for her lips.

Nicki was of course on hand to take the stage with Ariana Grande for their newest song together, “Side To Side.” Ari teased the duo’s performance earlier in the week on her Instagram with the above clip from their video, which will also debut during the VMAs.
