We’ve been keeping a close eye on Doja Cat ever since she shaved her head and her eyebrows last month after declaring, “I feel like I was never supposed to have hair anyway. I don’t like having hair.” As expected, her bare head and forehead have provided the makeup-loving rapper more real estate with which to create more playful and experimental makeup looks.
She’s drawn on eyebrows featuring teeny smiley faces, apples, and flowers and tried out eyeshadow looks extending far past her orbital, but these early trials are nothing compared to what she is now bringing to New York Fashion Week. She’s used the fashion-friendly environment to take her beauty game up several notches. As she said herself during her Instagram Live explaining the bold hair choice that has kicked off the next phase of her beauty evolution: “I can’t believe it took me this long to be like, ‘Shave your f*cking head.’” It does feel so right, especially in how it’s unlocked a new level of inventiveness in her makeup repertoire.
It’s clear that no one else is having nearly as much fun with their hair (or lack thereof) and makeup right now. Below, check out Doja Cat’s wild run of incredible New York Fashion Week beauty looks.
