Two of the biggest names in colorful hair right now are Nicki Minaj and Christina Aguilera. Nicki’s wig collection covers more hues than a deluxe Crayola crayon box and Xtina seems to be switching up her tips at break-neck speed. Given these ladies’ history of technicolor tresses, you can imagine our surprise when they BOTH showed up at tonight’s 2012 American Music Awards with way subdued (okay, for them anyway) platinum blonde bobs. *rubs eyes furiously through triple-take* Duhhhhh, WHAT?! And then they even posed together with their matching flaxen ’dos backstage!

Nicki paired her lime green Monique Lhuillier gown (the same one Julie Bowen wore to this year’s Emmy Awards!) with a voluminous curly bob. Christina, on the other hand, went the sleek straight route with a blunt bang, flapper-approved shoulder-length style. Just check out at that “HAY GURL!” look Xtina is serving. We like to think she’s yelling, “OMG, WE’RE HAIR TWINZ!” These simultaneous bleach blonde looks achieve such an eyebrow-raising level of unexpected AND similar-yet-different that we’re DYING to confirm our suspicions about whether or not they (or at least their stylists) talked about this beforehand.
