The 90s are having its moment!
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new-music video for “WAP” showcases not only women owning their sexuality but also the 90s hairstyle is making a comeback.
The new single WAP won the hardest visual for summer 2020. One amazing thing that musicians can do to enhance their creativity is never limited to making music.
Now, let’s talk about Cardi B and Megan Stallion’s matching and blended hairstyle in their new music video. From a ‘90s favorite to a custom dye-job, the hair moments were memorable and reminisced the most iconic 1990s updos.
Tokyo Stylez and Kellon Dereck created all the amazing, magical, and extravagant hairstyles that both singers and rappers wore for their cover art and music video. The perfectly shaped curls rise up just one foot above their heads, the base is a glossy style, and straightened tendrils dangle to one side, drawing the attention to sculpted baby hairs.
Not only the hair got the 90s vibe, but some features of their make-up also feel like a throwback from 20 years ago. The cover art features a talented Cardi and Megan who are placed back-to-back and head-to-head with their tongue sticking out similar to the Hindu gods Agni and Kali. They virtually resemble identical twins wearing gold hoop earrings with “WAP” on them and having their eyes closed.
After a few days, many people on the internet tried to recreate the hairstyle on their own. A lot of them have placed their very own spin at the updo, even though they still give credit to the video as the inspiration.
