Remember how Nicki Minaj shocked everyone at the MTV Movie Awards by ditching her usual crazy attire for a more subtle and sophisticated look? It turns out that the new look may be here to stay as Nicki is said to be trading her candy colored wigs for her natural hair. Maybe she’s also laying off the plastic surgery as well?
When Nicki Minaj appeared at the MTV Movie Awards in slinky black gown and a natural colored hair, many assumed that the rapper had simply traded in one wig for another. But according to her new stylist, that was Nicki’s own hair. Nicki has traded her old wig guru Terrence Davidson for hairstylist Oscar James who dished on Nicki’s new look to Cosmo magazine.
In the interview, Oscar reveals that Nicki has been requesting a more natural, toned-down look from her notoriously candy-colored collection of wigs. Although he doesn’t know why Nicki has had a change of heart about her style, he says that without the crazy colors and bold makeup, more of her natural beauty comes through.
Although Oscar says that it is refreshing to see a softer, more beautiful side of Nicki, he prefers to style wigs because of the wear and tear that occurs on natural hair, “For me, I prefer wigs. I can style them. I can put stuff on before I go. And then I can do whatever I want to. I can put more heat. I can put more color. Whereas with natural hair, you have to be a lot more careful and mindful. That’s a concern for me with Nicki wearing her natural hair almost everyday: It’s a lot of wear and tear on the hair. I’m trying to gradually get her back into wigs, but she’s adamant now. She doesn’t want it.”
Nicki first revealed her natural look when she posted some semi-scandalous photos of herself in the shower, sans clothing, makeup and wigs. She then glammed up for the MTV Movie Awards with only minimal extensions to augment her own long locks.
In the past, Nicki has faced numerous rumors of being anything but natural and even being compared to Lil Kim for her love of plastic surgery. Still, Nicki has always insisted that makeup, not plastic surgery is responsible for her ever changing look.
”I’ve never had surgery on my face. They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose. No, no, no, look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want. When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
While Nicki has long insisted that she has never had any plastic surgery on her face, including a nose job or fillers, she has never directly addressed rumors of plastic surgery on the rest of her body. Even with her softer makeup routine, it still looks like Nicki has probably had both a breast augmentation and buttocks augmentation as well.none
