Long hair, don't care!
The magic of textured hair lies in its versatility. Whether it’s curly, kinky or coiled, manipulating each strand into literally any style is possible, thanks to its ability to withstand all kinds of styling methods.
Although we love seeing afros and braids on the red carpet, it seems rapunzel-style hair is having a moment among the A-list.
For the past few weeks, record-breaking rapper Nicki Minaj has been slaying in strands that literally sweep the floor, proving that her beauty choices are as bold as her personality.
And let’s not forget Beyonce and Rihanna, who also opted for seriously long extensions at this year’s Grammy Awards.
Rapunzel hair isn’t exclusive to straight strands, either. Keep scrolling to see 20 more photos of famous women putting their own spin on the classic style.
