Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj may have been working up a sweat in their new ‘Side To Side’ video, but their hair and makeup looked amazing despite the heat. The duo teamed up once again, sporting ombré locks and bold lipstick. Get the details, ahead!
After debuting their new single onstage at the 2016 MTV VMAs on August 28 in NYC, Ariana Grande, 23, and Nicki Minaj, 33, dropped the official music video for “Side To Side.” With Ari kicking things off in a synchronized spin class, the petite singer wore her hair in her signature half-up ponytail with a baseball cap and nude lip and smokey eye makeup combo.
Throughout the video, Ari switches it up, wearing her ombré locks completely loose with her new bangs and going back to a half-up, half down style with volumized waves. Ariana also tried out a girly makeup look with a hot pink smokey eye that matched the pink boxing shorts she changed into while at the gym.
When she met up with Nicki in the steam room, Ari went back to her half-up pony and her usual smokey eyeshadow and cat eyeliner. Saving the bold color for her lips, Ari sported a matte red lip with her hot pink bodysuit, while Nicki went the opposite route with a pink lip and red two-piece. Rocking a blonde wig with dark roots, Nicki’s hair was styled completely straight.

Though the girls kept with the cycling theme during their live VMAs performance, they didn’t quite have the same hair and makeup they sported in their “Side To Side” video. Ari wore her hair completely up in a slicked back ponytail that was crimped, while Nicki’s blonde wig was styled in tousled waves.
What do you think of Ari and Nicki’s girly beauty looks? Are you happy to see they’ve teamed up once again?
