OSCAR JAMES

Celebrity hairstylist and mane master Oscar James has an impressive list of celeb clients, like Tyra Banks and Halle Berry. He is also the mane man behind Nicki Minaj’s signature dark roots and platinum strands.

Celeb Style Secrets
Oscar James, an Emmy Award-winning celebrity stylist, helped revamp one of the hottest female rapper’s hair. Check out what he said about Nicki Minaj’s mane…

* “Nicki has been switching it up lately, so there’s no real look she’s featuring right now. We are just beginning to play a lot more. She had been known for wigs for so long, then we did the dark roots with the blonde wigs, and then we took her out of wigs [altogether]. Now we’re starting to play with wigs [again].

* “She wants to experiment more and she’s interested in high-fashion looks so we’re playing with more wigs and hairpieces.”
