In April, Saweetie became a blonde bombshell with a stunning honey-blonde hue. The bright blonde hair got its fair share of love with braided ponytails, chic topknots, and other fire hairstyles for a few months. Then, in September, the Bay Area rapper ditched her light hair for a cute ginger hue, to her fans’ delight. Now, she’s swapping out the copper hair color for a much brighter red hue that is truly phenomenal.
The Icy Queen shared the new candy-apple red hair color in an Instagram carousel on October 13. This red hue is bright with a capital B, and she wears it well. There’s a slight ombré effect at the roots where the color fades from black to the scarlet shade for a seamless look. The long, straight hair cascades all the way past her waist and was styled with a part down the middle and two braids running through the front half of the hair. The bright red braids were crossed over and pinned at the middle-back of her head.
Who would Saweetie be without a hairline full of laid edges? Her baby hairs were undoubtedly slicked, swooped, and looped with expertise. Perhaps her stylist used the Kiss Edge Fixer Glued gel, for which the rapper has served as a spokesperson, or another amazing gel like the Best of Beauty-winning African Pride Extra Hold Braid, Loc, & Twist Gel, to keep those hairs slicked down. There’s no way to know, but until we do, we’ll just keep fawning over their perfection.
Saweetie seems to be fully embracing her red hair era, and we already can’t get enough. There’s no knowing how long she’ll keep this specific shade of red (for the record, we think she would look phenomenal with an auburn hue or brighter orange), but we can’t wait to see what’s next.
