Doja Cat is proving, yet again, that she belongs in the beauty Hall of Fame for her latest hair transformation. The musician posted a picture on Instagram showcasing her new buzz cut, and as if that wasn't enough, the style features a rat-tail in the back, taking the look from edgy to downright iconic.
Jared Henderson, the hairstylist behind the look, shared a behind-the-scenes look at creating the wig. He started by shaving the hair into a buzz-cut hairstyle, leaving the rat-tail braid untouched. Then, he mixed the colour for the wig, using Joico Vero K-Pak Colour Intensity Semi-Permanent Hair Colour (£15) in the shade soft pink and the Clear Mixer (£15). He applied the mixture to one half of the buzz cut and left the other half platinum blonde. The result was a next-level, colour-blocked pastel buzz-cut with a long blond rat-tail in the back.
Though the style is similar to a mullet — a hairstyle that Doja Cat has been seen in before — this unique look is a first for the music artist. With rat-tail braids being one of the many '80s hairstyles making a return in the trend cycle, there's a chance that this look may be trending sooner than you think. Take a closer look at Doja Cat's hairstyle below.
