For a while, it seemed like bobs were back with a vengeance. From the icy streets of New York City to bellisimoMilano, everybody and their mom, cousin, sister-in-law, and doorman were all wearing short, chin-length cuts in all textures — and with bangs. We get it, of course: A good, precise haircut has the same effect as a facelift. Just a whole lot cheaper.
Short hair is cool, but we still care about long hair. And so do stars like Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, and Shay Mitchell. They’re playing up their looks with extensions that go above and beyond… as in, literally beyond their butts. Nicki’s new hair nearly reaches her ankles.
Scroll ahead to see our favorite lengthy looks of the moment.
Beyoncé’s gleaming, center-parted blonde mane matches her sequined gown and diamond necklace… and two Grammys.
J.Lo’s razor-sharp contour was balanced by a sweet pink lip — and loose, waist-length hair.
Sweet pigtails get a sexy upgrade with strong brows, bronzy lids, and, oh, Jourdan freaking Dunn.
Shay Mitchell? More like SLAY Mitchell. That orange-red lip is hot, hot, hot and so are her razor-sharp strands.
Ariana Grande rarely lets down all her hair, but when she does: wow.
“Inches bih…. bad btchs link up,” Nicki Minaj captioned an Instagram from Paris Fashion Week. Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
