Nicki Minaj just sported Rapunzel-length locks while attending the Fashion Group International event in NYC on Oct. 27. The ‘Side To Side’ rapper styled her waist-length hair sleek and straight, and she’s just one of several celebrities to add major length to her hair look. Click ahead to get the details on Nicki’s latest hairstyle, and let us know what you think of the trend.
Nicki Minaj went for a dramatic hairstyle to match her over-the-top black lace Givenchy gown as she attended the FGI event with the fashion house’s artistic director Riccardo Tisci. But instead of sporting a bright hair color like we’re used to seeing from Nicki, the 33-year-old decided to add waist-length extensions to her dark hair.
While Nicki’s been rocking longer hair since the MTV VMAs this summer, her extensions have gotten noticeably longer, now reaching to just below her waist. Sticking to her preferred style, Nicki parted her hair down the center and styled it completely straight with lots of shine.
For her makeup, Nicki kept it pretty classic so as not to compete with her hair (or dress). Adding a highlight to her cheekbones, Nicki wore soft brown eyeshadow shades with a black cat eye and oversized lashes. Then, for a pop of color, she wore a bubblegum pink glossy lip.
Of course, Nicki isn’t the only celebrity who has been trying out extensions. While almost every celebrity adds some type of hair extension to her red carpet look for volume or a little bit of extra length, celebs like Ariana Grande, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have been using them to create dramatic waist-length looks. With Ariana and Bey opting for updo styles with their new long hair, Kim keeps hers styled in loose waves or super straight like Nicki.
