There is one pop star known famous for wearing her hair in a ski-high ponytail, but this week another celebrity singer gave her signature look a try. Olivia Rodrigo could almost be confused for a raven-haired Ariana Grande at the Governors Awards, with her long hair slicked back into a pony with a sleek side part. In the the past few days, there seems to have been a lot of celebrity look swapping. Megan Thee Stallion turned up to the Mean Girls premiere in New York on Monday with long platinum blonde hair and we could have sworn it was Regina George herself. Along with her icy blonde hair, Meg referenced the movie with a Burn Book-inspired mani. She posted a close-up of her new hair color and manicure in an Instagram dump on Wednesday and has previously called herself “the black Regina George.”
It’s hard to beat a Mean Girls-themed manicure, but this week the celebrities just kept on giving with their strong beauty looks. Ahead, are our pick for the top hair, makeup, and nail moments.
