She's gone through more hairstyle switches than just about any other celebrity working today, but instead of wrecking her own hair with too many color changes or drastic cuts, Nicki Minaj does it the smart way—with enhancements like wigs and extensions. This gallery of the many looks of Nicki showcases soft looks, wild and crazy styles, and even wigs that you can pull off. If you've always wondered how to wear hair enhancements, take a look and see how it's done by a pro!
Nicki Minaj in Green-Tinted Bob
Donning a soft green bob, Nicki proves that while the color may be a little out there, this is a style that can work for many. Save it for the weekend instead of the office, though.
Nicki Minaj - Hair Full of Volume
This wide, wild curly 'do is perfectly bold and dramatic, a great fit for the woman who doesn't want the same ole wig that everyone else is sporting! Tight curls combine with a wedge shape to create a look that should be saved for special occasions—special and over-the-top dramatic.
Nicki Sports a Multicolored Updo
So you have to be pretty brave to pull this off, but if you want to go over-the-top, you may as well go all the way. One side is blonde, the other acid green—combine the two colors and this is what you get; one unforgettable 'do! Unless you spend your life in the spotlight, this may be a look you save for Halloween.
Nicki's Short and Simple Style
Wigs aren't only for adding length. Some ladies with long hair sport wigs when they want a change to shorter styles. It's a good way to switch up your look without taking shears to your long locks! A short bob flatters many face shapes. You can go bold and blonde, as Nicki Minaj does here, but you can also choose a more subtle color that complements your complexion.
Nicki Is Pretty in Pastels
Going with the same color scheme as the previous look, but toning it down a little, Nicki steps out in a look that's actually pretty tame (compared to some of her more outrageous 'dos). A more natural blonde shade is the focus here, with bits of bright yellow and soft pink to make it more her style.
Nicki's Asian Inspiration
Wearing an Asian-inspired frock? Then hair like this is a great complement. It can take hours to achieve a traditional geisha 'do, so save yourself some time with a quick imitation. Slipping into a wig like this takes mere minutes, yet allows you to transport yourself into a completely different world. You already know Nicki isn't afraid to take chances or make changes, so this look should be no surprise.
Nicki Is Brilliant in Blue
Sure, black, brown, red, copper and blonde are beautiful colors, but why not try blue for something completely different and unforgettable? This straight and curly combo features a Nicki signature—the blunt cut bangs. The fringe frames her face nicely while the voluminous curls in the back add height and drama.
Nicki Minaj has made a career out of extremely bold hairstyles that are not for the shy. While you don't have to go blue, green or hot pink, you can find a wig that suits you perfectly. Use these hair enhancements for quick style changes that allow for a world of experimentation without fear of damage. Now you can be a platinum blonde or have hair down your back, even if just for the day. Hair can be as much fun as you want it to be, so take a cue from Nicki if you've always wondered what you'd look like as a blue-haired beauty, but were afraid to try it.
