Nicki Minaj's Hair for American Idol

Nicki Minaj’s hair for American Idol has already made a statement … and it’s only the first stage of the auditions. Nicki Minaj has only just been confirmed as a panelist on the US talent show, where she will appear alongside diva Mariah Carey. Both ladies have completely different styles, so it will be pretty interesting to watch them battle it out in the style wars.


For the first auditions, Nicki Minaj’s hair was worn with loads and LOADS of voluminous curls … her hair was a melting pot of shades with bright yellow, pink, and orange thrown into the mix! Whatever you might say about Nicki Minaj, she certainly knows how to stand out and ensure she gets herself noticed. Kudos to her for that!

Mariah Carey's Hair was more glam as she wore a centre parting and her blonde locks styled into loose waves. We’re loving the length of Mariah’s hair at the moment and we look forward to seeing the styling throughout the series.
Mariah Carey matched her hairdo with a black mac worn over a simple black dress … her black peep-toe heels were absolutely gorge!

To re-create this look, use your curling tongs through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair and gently brush through the curls.


Nicki’s outfit was somewhat toned down by her standards! The star wore baby blue fitted cropped trousers, a multi-coloured crop top, a white blazer, and turquoise boots with a killer heel! What a contrast to Mariah Carey’s appearance!

We’re quite intrigued to see Nicki Minaj’s hair for American Idol, as well as her style choices, throughout the series, but we’re looking forward to Mariah’s looks too. What do you guys think? Tell us below or on Facebook.
