Sometimes, Vintage Fashion is the Best Fashion

Skunk hair was a big trend in the 90s and early 2000s, and the thing about fashion and style is that some often forgotten trends often resurface. Skunk hair may have been a thing of the 90s and early 2000s, but they are currently back in style, and we love to see it. This bold hairstyle incorporates dual color blocking and defies all traditional hair rules. Here are some celebrities who have rocked this look so well.



Rihanna has always been a trendsetter, so it is no surprise that she was ahead of the recent hair trend when she started to add vibrant colors to her edgy fauxhawk. During that era, I remember that many Nigerian girls back home would go to their hairstylists and demand to get a “Rihanna” done. The soon-to-be mom is undeniably a cultural icon




Our girl Sza is known for having a sense of style that is effortlessly chic and versatile. She keeps the same energy with her hair. Over the years, we have seen Sza subtly transform her hair from full-bodied wavy hair to bouncy afro curls. She has used brilliant colors like green and honey blonde to add an extra edge to her hair.


Nicki Minaj

Unsurprisingly, Nicki Minaj made this list. As an MVP in the rap world, she has blazed a trail for many other female rappers who want to break out into the musical scene. Right from her early days, Nicki always embraced eclectic hairstyles, personas, and fashions that drew the curiosity of fans. In terms of skunk hair, she was ahead of her time. With the help of her hairstylist, she still rocks a skunk hairstyle that features many peppy colors.



Beyoncé is one of the most recognized icons of our time. Over the years, Queen Bey has consistently sported the skunk hairstyle. In true Beyoncé fashion, she has often opted for demure hues like a honey blonde look with light tinges of auburn against dark brown hair for an elegant contrast.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       


Keyshia Cole

Keyshia Cole has always been known for her passionate, soulful voice. Throughout her career, Keyshia has also experimented many times with her hair, switching out different colors, wisps, and braids. Her ability to rock any color and hairstyle is just another reason she is one of the best to rock the skunk trend.



The Oakland vocalist Kehlani is no stranger to eclectic hairstyles. We’ve seen them rock everything from pink tresses to a black pixie. Although they have now gone back to their natural black hair, they were recently rocking the skunk strip trend. The singer has taken the color-blocking trend to new heights by blending in blonde and black pieces of hair for a beautiful, contrasting swoopy style. The singer has also experimented with darker hues of brown and blonde. We love to see it!
