Ms. Minaj has a thing for these hair helpers.


With her star turn on the upcoming film Barbershop: The Next Cut, singer/actress Nicki Minaj is looking more fabulous than ever! And, so is her hair…thanks to the skills of her personal stylist, celebrity hair pro Oscar James. So what’s one of Nicki’s secrets for a marvelous mane? James tells us she’s into clip-ins! “If you buy a great set of clip-ins they will last months and months,” divulges the star stylist. “I think it’s worth taking them to your stylist and having them tailored for you.”

For more of our convo with Oscar James (and more about Nicki’s other style secrets) check out the cover story in the March ‘16 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…(the one with Nicki on the cover!) on sale now!
