It Took A Day And A Half For Nicki Minaj's Hair Stylist To Create Her 'Motorsport' Braids

See Kim Kimble's 36-hour remix to this iconic Beyoncé hairstyle.

Published December 7, 2017

The Barbz, a.k.a Nicki Minaj, has quickly taken over the weave game with her floor-length looks. 

It's no surprise that Nicki looked glam AF in the "Motorsport" video collab with Migos and Cardi B that dropped last night — but this new style has us #shook.

She's taking it to a whole new level with what the internet is calling "Pink Lemonade 2.0" braids. Issa look!

Who's behind this look? Beyoncé's long-time stylist Kim Kimble, who wasn't afraid to serve Nicki all the inches. Turns out these ladies share more than a hit single.

Kim made sure Nicki was laid for the gawds down to pink baby hairs. We found out the braiding process took a day and a half to create—yes, 36 entire hours of straight braiding. We're not worthy!

Here's a video snippet for those of you who don't have a Tidal subscription.
