Strawberry Blonde Just Might Be Nicki Minaj's Best Hair Color Yet

The rapper never misses when it comes to experimental shades, but we're convinced this should be her new signature look.

Leave it to Nicki Minaj to try every hair color under the sun. She's known for her Barbie pink hair, but she's also tried ruby red, platinum blonde, and canary yellow. It's hard to even imagine the rapper without a bright hue, but it's the light ginger shade she just debuted on Instagram that we're most obsessed with.

The "Anaconda" singer shared a photo of her new strawberry blonde hair color on Instagram for her more than 170 million followers to ooh and aah over. She's seen lying on a white bed dressed in a navy dress with a high slit, her lengthy hair cascading around her shoulders. Her tousled strands look like they've been slightly curled, resulting in some major volume. This color is stunning: it's a light coppery hue so it's not too blonde, yet not as dark as many of the ginger shades we've seen lately.

This isn't her first time going strawberry blonde: she wore a light rose gold hue on set of the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion she hosted last year. It was a much lighter, brighter shade than the copper she's currently trying, and honestly, we can't decide which one we love more — they're both divine. We love to see the "Super Bass" star dip into these warm hues, and can't help but wonder what color she has coming next. Maybe she'll go back to bright orange, or try something on the cooler side.

And while her hair might be the focus of this photo, we can't ignore those nails. They're almost cut out of the shot, but you can see her long manicure at the bottom right-hand corner of the photo. Her nails are dark red, and they're sculpted into what looks like a coffin shape

Minaj's hair colors are always a moment, but there's just something special about this strawberry blonde hue. Hopefully, it won't be replaced too soon.
