Everyone loves a good Cinderella story. Perhaps that’s why Belcalis Almanzar, also known as Cardi B, has amassed over 11 million followers on Instagram and Twitter since 2015 — and the numbers keep boomin’. Some OG fans remember watching the college student-turned-grocer-turned-
stripper’s hilarious Instagram videos back in 2015, where she outlined her sexcapades, her plastic surgery procedures, and anything else you — or she — could imagine.
Her audience grew by multitudes once she landed a spot on Love & Hip Hop: New York. Even though that whole “love” part wasn’t all that prevalent (her ex-boyfriend is incarcerated and they ended up calling it quits), America still loved the Bronx native’s sharp wit, endless one-liners, and rainbow of colorful hairstyles.
As her spotlight grew brighter, Cardi’s beauty game has become stronger. She’ll still pull a wildcard by throwing on a fiery red, waist-length wig or a bright green lip, but lately, the star has been playing with softer looks Of course, she’s had ample opportunity to do so: She’s become a red carpet and Fashion Week regular.
Thanks to hairstylist @CLIFFVMIR, the mother-t0-be recently swapped out her brunette curls for something prismatic and (possibly) Pride-inspired.
