Nicki Minaj's New Hair Is Very 2004 Avril Lavigne

Nicki's bringing back two-tone hair.

It seems almost inevitable that 2000s trends are about to have a renaissance, like, any day now. Between an upcoming sitcom about Juicy Couture, Ariana Grande reminding us of Paul Frank, and Rihanna's general fashion sense, we are fully prepared to live 2003 all over again.

So, it seems, is Nicki Minaj.

On Tuesday, Nicki shared some photos of her latest blonde iteration. Though we've seen blonde Nicki before, this variation is very 2000s: the lighter locks are tucked underneath the rest of her hair. Surprise!

Two-tone hair was all the rage in the early aughts, especially with my idol, Avril Lavigne. Though Avril's approach was the opposite of Nicki's -— dark hair hiding beneath lighter hair -— the element of surprise remains.

That surprise, though, is nothing compared to seeing this color trend again. What's next, chunky highlights??
