When 18-year-old Angie Miller dominated the top four on American Idol, feisty judge Nicki Minaj told her, "You came out tonight to snatch some wigs off some heads, honeychild. Tonight was your night."
Nicki knows a few things about wigs. On American Idol, the top-selling hip-hop artist’s hairstyle and color seem to change as often as her mercurial moods. From sexy flaxen blonde (Amber by Wig Pro) to seductive brunette (Human Hair Platinum 108) to piled-up queen bee [Shawn by Motown] to tousled pink-streaked sass-mouth (Long Edna), Nicki uses her wigs to showcase different aspects of her personality, keeping every day fresh and exciting. (Click here to see some of Nicki’s signaturelooks.)
Each of Nicki’s personas is all Nicki but with a special twist. Until you see her hair, you don’t know which Nicki will be sitting in the judge’s chair that night. Will it be in-charge Nicki or flirty Nicki or feisty Nicki? Her wig is your only clue – at least until she opens her mouth!
A wigged chameleon, Nicki gets to live her fantasy life and reinvent herself every day just by putting on a different wig. It will be interesting to see whether her wig collection shows up in Nick Cassavetes’ new movie The Other Woman starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton. Nicki just joined the cast in a supporting role. We’ll have to wait until Christmas or next spring to find out though as the film doesn’t start shooting until next month.
Until then, who do you want to be today? Live your fantasy on WigSalon.com.
