Here Is A Look At Cardi B’s Top Hair Looks And Be Prepared To Have Some Serious Wig Envy

iamcardib / Instagram

It’s not unusual to see Cardi B dance onto the stage or the red carpet with a brightly colored wig in shades we’ve never seen before. Those daring hair looks are usually courtesy of one of her many wigs, most of which she’s credited to hairdresser Tokyo Stylez. Stylez doesn’t just create wigs, she creates masterpieces — all perfectly installed, might I add.

You might remember the pulled back updo Cardi had at Rihanna’s 2019 Diamond Ball or the Rapunzel-esque red inches she wore for a Poison Ivy costume. To scroll through Stylez’s Instagram is to swim through a sea of flawlessly blended wigs.

Bursting onto the rap scene in 2016, on the sixth season of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York, Cardi made a name for herself in the beauty space with her down-to-there straight lengths in varying tones of cherry red, raven, and platinum. From short lilac pixies to waist-length rainbow varieties, Cardi isn’t afraid to try any hair look, and always looks great in them.

We’ve rounded up some of her best wig looks to prove just how many she must have. Our only question is where she keeps them all.

Coronavirus Realness

After COVID-19 made its way to the United States, Cardi B made a statement on Instagram Live, “Coronavirus. Shit is real. Shit is getting real.” The soundbite ended up getting remixed into a catchy dance song. She looked sensational in a bronze fishnet dress from TLZ L’Femme. The honey blonde highlights blended seamlessly into the caramel hair for a look we hope to see again on the entertainer in the future.

Cardi seems really into hair bows, as this is the second look with the style that she’s worn during quarantine. The rapper shared a close-up of the bubblegum pink wig to Instagram on Tuesday, April 28. She used half the wig to create a bow on the top of her head while the rest of the hair (except for the bangs) was tied into a low ponytail. We’re going to be watching closely to see if she experiments with any more bows while self-isolating.

In February of 2019, Cardi B wore this long, rainbow wig that we couldn’t look away from.

Cardi’s look at the NBA All-Star Game in February was next level luxury. She styled the perfectly slicked-back, length ponytail with a fur vet and a purple Birkin bag that was just so extra. The garnet wig was slicked back into this low, side ponytail. We need the details on the styling products ASAP because not a single hair is out of place.

Her Lilac Look

At a party during Super Bowl weekend, the rapper’s wig was short and lilac with magenta streaks.

In April, the performer went live on Instagram to discuss a few political issues with Sen. Bernie Sanders. She made her appearance in this gorgeous cobalt blue wig. Rather than do the typical space buns, the hair was pulled up into two large bows on either side of her head.

Cardi was a stunner in this half-up, half-down style with flipped ends. The throwback look comes with a twist – literally – as the front of the hair is in medium-sized Bantu knots. Fun fact: Although her wig may look black in some photos, it’s actually an indigo shade.

In September 2018, Cardi B stunned us with her sleek short blond bob wig and leopard sunglasses.

Our regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx arrived at the Powerhouse NYC 2019 concert in this nurse costume just before Halloween. This super straight, waist-length crimson wig matches her outfit and bold rouge lip flawlessly.

Have you ever seen a wig as long as the one the rapper wore to the Global Citizens Concert in 2018?

This ultra-long wig’s raven-black space buns were accented with a thick, electric-pink stripe right down the center of its blunt bangs, making Cardi look like a character straight out of the Mortal Kombat video game. Even when wearing dark hair, she can’t resist having a pop of color added in somewhere.
