HAIR BY: Tokyo Stylez

INSPIRATION: “Nicki was giving major Barbie vibes in her pink spandex two piece. We wanted to make a statement with her stick straight long beautiful locks.” -Tokyo Stylez


1. To start, I prepped Nicki’s hair with the ghd advanced split end therapy ($28). I like to start with this cream because it replenishes and restores overworked strands and brings damaged ends back to life. 

2. I then massaged in the ghd heat protectant spray ($22) and about five pumps of the ghd straight & tame cream ($24) from roots to tip to create a sleek look.

3. I blew out her strands with the ghd air hairdryer ($199) and then I used the ghd tail comb ($22) to create a clean middle part. 

4. I worked my way throughout her hair using the ghd platinum™ styler ($249) and ghd oval dressing brush ($40) to straighten ½ inch horizontal sections.

5. To complete the look, I sprayed the ghd narrow dressing brush ($40) with hairspray and brushed through her stands, from root to tip to create a super sleek look.

PRODUCTS: ghd advanced split end therapy ($28), ghd heat protectant spray ($22), ghd straight & tame cream($24), ghd air hairdryer ($199), ghd tail comb ($22), ghd platinum styler ($249), ghd oval dressing brush ($40), ghd narrow dressing brush ($40)

Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin Go Viva Glam for MAC

Viva Glam for MAC today announced that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin have raised an impressive $250 million since the two joined the MAC AIDS Fund campaign in January. Nicki’s lipstick “VivaGlam Nicki” and Ricky’s lip conditioner “Viva Glam Lip Conditioner,” provide glam and charity.

As Viva Glam spokespeople, Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj want young people everywhere to be bold and learn the facts about HIV/AIDS, be beautiful by caring for those most impacted and be safe when making sexual choices. Only 40 percent of adolescents have accurate knowledge about HIV/AIDS and how it spreads. As every cent from the sales goes toward helping those affected by HIV and AIDS, Viva Glam is a fabulous way to look amazing and help.

Since its inception, the MAC AIDS Fund via MAC Cosmetics has launched seven exclusive Viva Glam product lines. Each featuring a limited advertising campaign with celebrity superstars such as RuPaul, K.D. Lang, Lil’ Kim, Sir Elton John, Mary J. Blige, Shirley Manson, Linda Evangelista, Boy George, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliott, Pamela Anderson, Lisa Marie Presley, Debbie Harry, Eve, Dita Von Teese, Fergie, Cyndi Lauper, and Lady Gaga.For more information about the MAC AIDS Fund, click HERE
