Nicki Minaj perfect for eccentric look
Nicki Minaj is the "right artist" to champion outlandish looks, says her hairstylist.
The songstress is famed for her statement coloured tresses, creative use of cosmetics and head-turning outfits. Terrence Davidson has worked with the star to create some of her most iconic looks.
He was excited to collaborate with the eccentric singer when she agreed to the bizarre styles.
"It was like, 'Wow, finally, in my time someone wants to do this,' because I've been wanting to do this for years," he told MTV News of his shared penchant for "out-the-box" hair looks. "It's just I hadn't met the right artist that wanted to sit down and make this work."
Nicki told Terrence she was "feeling animal prints" when she came to film the accompanying promo for Fly with Rihanna. The hair professional painted zebra stripes onto a white Mohawk wig, and was surprised by Nicki's response.
"I really didn't think she was gonna wear it but when she walked on the trailer, she was like, 'Whoa,'" he recalled.
Terrence says the theatrical wigs do provide a bit of a hazard on set though.
"We were trying to figure out how to get her in the car then out with it," he laughed.
"I was looking at the video thinking, 'I think it got crooked from hitting the roof!'"
