With the start of autumn, we’re always on the look out for new-season style inspiration…And Lil’ Mama never fails to deliver! The gorgeous music star’s sleek bob and auburn mane shade strikes just the right note for Fall 2014 in this portrait she posted on Instagram. With lengths barely grazing the shoulders and a glossy, sleek texture it’s a style that’s right at home wherever it’s seen. Don’t you agree?
