Cardi B and hairstylist Tokyo Stylez are a hairstyling match made in heaven because they raise the bar with every new look the rapper wears. You can’t convince me otherwise. Don’t believe me? Then behold Cardi’s latest hairstyle, which features colorful hand-painted crosses.
Stylez got inspiration from wig maker Alfred Lewis and colorist Calla Kash for this innovative look, which Cardi B revealed to Instagram fans on June 9. The Bronx-raised rapper is seen squatting in a white thong swimsuit with her hand-painted blonde hair cascading towards her lower back. You can only see one side of the wig in the first picture, showing off several crosses that have been outlined with a green, pink, teal, purple, or orange hue. Swipe to the second and fourth photos for a close-up shot of the hand-painted designs. The bold, colorful outlines of each cross were diffused outward, so they were boldest at their center.
On her own page, Stylez posted a short clip of the painting process with the caption, “I must admit this was one of the most difficult challenges i’ve tried in a while but it was fun i def know how to execute this after my first go around but shout outs to @alfredlewislll and @calla__kash.”
