Get a sleek bob like Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is ever the hairstyle chameleon -- and some of her looks are more freaky than fashionable. But at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, she wore a sleek and shiny bob with blunt bangs that looked pretty normal and downright sophisticated (until you get to her outfit...). To recreate her sleek bob, follow these easy steps.

Get a sleek bob like Nicki Minaj

Step 1

After showering, apply a hair serum designed to smooth hair and make it shiny, like Nicki's.

Step 2

Blow-dry hair with a medium barrel round brush, drying the hair straight out from the scalp. Once you reach the ends, roll the brush under and apply the blow dryer at an angle to accentuate the rounded edge.

Step 3

Blow-dry bangs straight down, and as you did with the rest of your hair, blow dry the ends of your bangs around the round brush to create the rounded under effect.

Step 4

Smooth any flyaways, and spray with medium hold hairspray.
