A bold hair statement, Nicki Minaj is not afraid of. As a matter of fact, your girl Nicki is basically the ~queen~ of sultry, badass hairstyles, and her Cannes cameo is just further proof of that. The 34-year-old rapper hit up the 2017 amfAR Gala Thursday night and instantly put her Rapunzel-worthy hair to work. A few tousles here and strategic head turns there, and Nicki’s knee-length mane instantly became the real star of the red carpet.

Of course, this is the Nicki Minaj we’re talking about here. Just look at her whip that gorgeous hair back and forth.

Oh, and the fierce hair game just kept going all night, even between three (read: three!) outfit changes.

Since she’s been rocking her amazingly long Rapunzel locks since March, Ms. Minaj has clearly logged some practice hours fanning out her hair for the perfect poses. And clearly, it’s paid off, considering how ~dayum~ ferocious her ‘do looks.

Between her seriously sexy black Robert Cavalli gown, her feisty red illusion paneled number and a leathery-chic Balmain performance getup, Nicki’s long locks remained perfectly sleek and straight throughout the night. Which is definitely and accolade worthy of praise, considering us mere mortals can hardly manage to keep our normal-length hair sleek and straight for more than an hour.

We said it before, and we’ll say it again: while everyone at last night’s amfAR Gala looked lovely, Nicki’s sassy long hair was the real MVP of the night.
