Would You Wear a Colorful Wig Like Nicki Minaj?

 

Nicki Minaj is a smart gal — rather than destroying her hair with several dye processes a month, she turns to her extensive wig collection. The result: radical, statement-making hairstyles in every color under the sun.

Rocking a wig like a natural set of tresses is extremely easy, as Garnier Fructis celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena shows Us Weekly in the video above. So long as the hair is prepped right, no one will notice that there's faux strands on board.
