Each New Day

Nicki Minaj is not only all over the billboard and video charts lately- but she changes her look daily with the use of wigs! Here, Nicki talks about her hair style on


How many wigs do you have? -”Right before I walk out the door, I grab one. Today, I wore a beige jacket and brown boots and I wanted to keep the whole earth-tone color scheme, so I did blonde. But it all depends on my mood. I just like to feel euphoric and free—so I’m going for more of the pink and the crazy, weird stuff now.”

Do your alter egos have their own styles?- ” They definitely do. Martha’s an older lady in her 60s or 50s. The nerdy look I did in my Saturday Night Live sketch was Dexter. I haven’t unveiled Roman yet. I can’t wait to show everyone what he looks like! I think that my more flamboyant stuff is definitely not Nicki—it’s basically Roman in drag.”


If you are looking to play around with extreme colors, or simply like to change your color everyday, we recommend visiting two local companies Champion Costume and Party Supply on Denny Avenue or different locations of Display and Costume. These are synthetic hair wigs that cannot be heat styled with flat irons or curling irons but range in price from $25.00 to $50.00. You generally don’t need to wash or styled these types of wigs-just a quick comb through and go! A great supplier for wigs online is Arda Wigs They carry wigs with heat resistant fibers, so you can even custom style your wigs yourself, too. No hair damage incurred for an extremely vivid shade and no committment!


If you are looking for bright crayon shade pieces to your hair you can have one of our trained stylists consult with you about achieving it with bleach and color. Or another alternative is having one of our extensions specialists (Tracy or Ellen) insert colored strands into your hair. Depending on how many you put in it can be equivalent to a foil or balayage service but without the damage!

Express your mood through your hair like Nicki and play around with a new style each day……. Happy Hair Changes!
