Nicki Minaj Reveals Waist Length Hair

Avatar • Mar 20, 2013

Nicki Minaj has some serious hang time! After teasing a photo of her hair a few months back, she took to Twitter again yesterday to reveal straightened hair hanging to her waist with the caption,

#LongHairDontCare #HangTime #ImaWearItOutWhenItTouchesMyASS =P

Although she didn’t show her face, I don’t think it’s hard to believe that Nicki could have hair this long. She has a world class team of stylists managing her wigs/weaves, and I’m sure they could — at her request — ensure that the hair underneath isn’t strained.

Honestly, this kind of thing is starting to get embarrassing. Why do we black women need to put all our crazy on display like that? One day, Beyonce is whining about bow down bitches or whatever. And Keisha Cole is whining about blah blah blah. Now Nikki Minaj is posting videos about her “real hair length”…with her little V hanging down. What are these ladies trying to prove? And to whom? From the outside looking in — black women are starting to look like a batch of seriously insecure basketcases. Come on, now. Can we please stop giving energy to this… Read more »

a batch of seriously insecure basket cases? I have to whole heartedly disagree with that statement 100%. We are starting to look like a batch of finally educated about our own hair care, confident to show the world what God gave us, over coming the stereotypes that have been set upon us about hair, proud, proud, proud racial group. We are trying to prove to the world that although our hair is completely different, it does grow contrary to everyones belief and that it can be just as gorgeous as caucasian hair. There is nothing insecure about that.

Yes. D.P. Nikki Minaj is SO confident about her hair that she covers it up with blond wigs, etc, ALL THE TIME. And when she DOES show it, it’s fully straightened and she won’t even show her face in the same shot. What about that seems confident to you? Embracing one’s natural hair is one thing. Advertising your neurotic length check on twitter or instagram, or whatever, is quite another. It reeks of someone who has something to “prove.” Who the hell needs to prove that their hair is long when you’re a rock star, for cryin’ out loud? And, as a… Read more »

Ew. Excuse my horrendous grammar in that. I was educated in a private k‑12 school and graduated from college with a four year degree and I am writing like I never made it past the 2nd grade. My apologies if that long paragraph is impossible to understand. I was writing too quickly and did not reread or edit anything. I just kept going 🙂

Hey, girlie. If you don’t want to receive the wisdom of somebody who has been there. Don’t. But you might want to consider that perhaps somebody else does. I have a right to express my point of view. And others have a right to read those words and apply them if they so choose.

I can understand how Beyonce and Keyshia Cole might make themselves look foolish but I don’t see how Nicki Minaj looks foolish for showing her hair. If she’s proud of her hair she should show it, just like any other woman. I don’t see what’s wrong with that. I’m sure she’s aware that many of her fans would like to know what’s underneath all the make up, weave, and antics. I think this is her way of being a little more personalable instead of a “Barbie” all the time.

Girl, relax. I’m tired of other Black women doubting the ability of Black women to grow their own darned hair. This is the reason she puts up these dumb pictures. How is she supposed to take a picture of her hair length from the back, and include her face? And I’m sure, for like for most women, especially w/ the lace front she wears, the front isn’t as long as the back, which therefore, in her mind, makes it less impressive. It’s always this ridiculous mentality of trying to categorize the worthiness of Black women, which sadly Nicki also primitively… Read more »

In this article (which I still don’t understand why BGLH chose not to post over this one about a dumb twitter picture, NM expresses how insecure she feels when she isn’t all done up in make up and wigs and crazy clothes. It has become who she is, and she has the right to not feel right when she isn’t in what she feels comfortable in. If she isn’t comfortable, then thats the end of the discussion. She will and can do what she wants, she’s fricken Nicki Minaj! lol

I feel like it’s to generate buzz (mission accomplished!). Anyways, I can only speak for myself when I say that I would try and show off length earlier in my journey. I used my length retention to prove people wrong. I remember discussing my hair goals with another girl and she replied that she “thought n***** hair didn’t grow”. Although that was the worst, I got similar responses from many of my peers. So I ended up parading my hair to those people as if I owed them something. Guess what? They swore it was weave and not my real… Read more »

I wanted to go HAM on her life, but I knew that if she can use that word to describe another black person, then she probably has some preconceived notions on how “angry” I am, too. The woman clearly knew nothing about her own hair, since she had severe breakage and the worse ends I’ve seen in my life. You could… Read more »

It’s amazing how many black women describe their hair as “nigger hair”, the same experience happened to me last year. I was talking to a close friend, who is always wearing fake pony tails and somehow the conversation of hair came up. And she described her hair as Nigger hair — and the way she described it, you could tell that she really hated it. From the outside she seems to be very well put together, always on point, but if you’re in a conversation with her and hair comes up then you really see the insecurities.

She put it up for you people who are obsessed with hair length, which is just a carryover from the idea that Black hair is not as good as White hair. Why does it matter to some of you about how long your hair is? I mean to the point that you feel the need to put a blow dryer to it and do a “length check.” It is not, and will never be, that serious. For most people it’s just an outcome of genetics, like the thickness of your hair. But here we are, talking about length retention and protective… Read more »

Good for her I guess.She could have gotten a slight face shot if the person wasn’t so close and if it was turned to the side, photography 101 know your angles. Heck right now for me I’m trying to get mine at least shoulder length, but that is going to take time.Besides she lives in wigs and what not so I don’t doubt that she doesn’t have long hair.

I’m not saying she “needs” to feel remorseful, but let the other websites that favor these types of celebrities cover it.

Think about it this way. Nicki’s father is an indian. Her mother is an african. A kid from them would have soft curly hair, depending on what side of the family they take more from. In this case Nicki took more of her Mum’s hair, but without the relaxer her hair would be curly. In Trinidad a child of east indian and african descent is called a ‘Dougla’.

I’ve noticed that when you let people on BGLH know someone hair length and curl pattern comes from their non-black genes it tends to offend. Especially now that we have the knowledge that the kinkiest of hair can grow even longer. :)…so, being of Indian, Asian, Latino or European decent is not someone’s ticket to long hair. Bias, discrimination and self hate has kept many women of color from achieving length and opting for chemicals to help manage their kinks. We know better now and we’re spreading the knowledge. 🙂

Lol girl they said the exact same thing about Taraji Henson, there was this great debate about whether her “natural hair” was a weave or not. I honestly feel like putting so much time and effort into that is just pointless but that’s just me

Here is my issue: Why not post ur whole face?is she that awful looking without her barbie doll costume that she won’t show her face? So like I said abt the previous alledged NM hair shot…this is simply a picture of someones hair…for ppl to fierecly defend the legitimacy of her hair is plain ridiculous.I don’t doubt it COULD be but the unnecessary cloak n dagger secrecy abt her face without the paint is annoying so I chose 2 assume it could or could not be. Jbc its her twitter acct means little to me. Her faceless photos r just as annoying… Read more »

I don’t believe it’s NM. Actually I couldn’t care less. If it is her then it just angers me that she would even take the effort to show her hair length without her face. What is she trying to pull? What message is she trying to portray? IDK, I don’t care for her music or her style. I think it’s dumb as h?!! for them put her (of all people) on a music show to “judge” others. She could take some lessons on singing and etiquette. If it’s her hair then great for her. If she really cares about how… Read more »

Love, there was hate all in that post.

I am not a fan of Nicki, but I’m less of a fan of people just throwing shade. NM doesn’t owe anybody anything. It would be one thing if she came to THIS SITE and posted it. That’s not what happened.

The hair is beautiful no matter if it’s hers or not. In regards to some comments about people not liking her because she wears alot of wigs. I think that yall need to calm down. Its just hair folks and wearing wigs keeps your hair nice and protected. And helps you to retain length as long as its cared for underneath that’s all that matters. I realize some naturals believe weave is the enemy and wearing them means that you have some form of self hate but self hatred comes from inside of you not from whats on your head.… Read more »

I’m a weave wearing natural! My hair has retained significant length in the last few months by NOT manipulating my hair constantly. Gold stars to the wash and go/ style daily crew, but idk why its so hard to accept that some of us love our unprocessed hair and while we would like it to grow as long as we can get it to we’re okay knowing its there even if nobody else gets to see it. No shade. I just like knowing I have a head full of hair…I don’t have to prove that its there to anyone.

My feelings exactly!! I am also a wig wearing natural with a full big head of hair. I wear wigs because I don’t know how to style it and I can’t find a natural hair stylist I can trust. Most stylists don’t want to deal with natural hair. I couldn’t care any less what others think about it. Nikki’s hair looks fab.

I’m also a weave-wearing natural. My hair is too short to wear out and braiding it too often was thinning the edges. My stylist doesn’t braid it too tightly so the weave is working out quite nicely.

This is a natural hair website that prominently features Black women showing their natural hair WITHOUT wigs or weaves. Some naturals may have used a weave or wig to help get to their present length or they wear weaves for fun.… Read more »

Nicki Manaj has long hair.Most people don’t realize that she’s actually a dark skin Indian mixed with a little Black African blood. Her features are Indian,not West African. Her hair itype is not the typical African American hair type we see most of the time. IN FACT she has very little curl or wave to her natural hair. She’s a rap star, with brown skin,so people automatically(understandably) but ignorantly assume she must be black and wear weaves. Because society ignorantly has a tendancy to believe all black looking women must have hair that can’t grow. Nicki is socially accepted as… Read more »

Your race does not determine the length of your hair. Even if she is “mixed” with Indian does not put her out of the African American category. To be honest, most blacks have Indian in their blood. I’m biracial with light tan skin and Caucasian features: small lips, pointy nose and 3a/3b hair but yet and still i am notice as an African American. People are going to call it like they see it. And FYI, their are many African Americans with long hair. There are many mixed races that can’t get their hair past their shoulders.

I think a lot of celebrities wear weaves and wigs to protect their hair from damage. Their hair receives constant manipulation.
