Never heard of Cardi B? You will soon. The rapper from New York is the first female solo rap artist to secure a number 1 in the Hot 100 Billboard Charts this century (wow!) with her debut song Bodak Yellow, knocking off Taylor Swift from the top spot.
From front row appearances at fashion week to securing magazine covers (plus support from top female artists such as Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna) there really is no stopping Cardi B! But asides from her musical talent and hilarious personality, it’s her fab hairstyles that really steal our attention…
Cardi B’s best mane moments of 2017 so far
Cover girl waves
Confirming her status as the hottest name in music this year, Cardi B graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in typical Cardi B style.
Opting for a sultry look, Cardi went for a glossy finish on her lengthy deep-brown hair and added loose waves for a soft and sultry feel. It pairs perfectly with her enviable lingerie and her long leopard coat, no? Credit: @iamcardib
Cardi B’s most recent style is giving us serious ’90s vibes and we love it! Adding a mass of curls to her medium-length hair, Cardi adds further definition to her ‘do with a set of golden brown highlights. Come on, just look at that shine!
Editor’s tip: Tempted to try Cardi’s shimmering curls at home? Ensure you use a heat protection spray, such as the VO5 Nourish My Shine Bedazzling Oil Heat Protection Spray, before using heated styling tools on your tresses.
There is a difference between liking a hairstyle and loving a hairstyle, and this romantic updo we totally LOVE!
While attending Rihanna’s charity ball, Cardi looked like a real-life Disney princess with her jet black hair tied into a low updo and allowing her loose waves to perfectly frame her face.
Cardi stole our attention (yet again) when she attended the BET Awards with this blunt bob and striking shade. And while we would love to insert a pun about Bodak Yellow here, this flawless platinum hue is far from yellow, shining bright with it’s icy finish!
Cardi B’s voluminous wavy lob (AKA a long bob) is perfectly on trend and just so happens to suit the rapper down to a T.
Editor’s tip: Seal your waves with a generous spritz of the VO5 Wave Creation Hairspray. Not only will its lightweight, ultra-brushable technology help you create sultry texture and bouncy waves, it also gives an invisible, workable hold that’ll last all day long!

Bob + Bangs
Has there ever been a better combo than a bob with bangs? We think not. Cardi rocked a chic black bob and brow-skimming fringe on the red carpet, and we can’t help but notice how similar it looks to Bella Hadid‘s style from the CFDAs.
