From super long, super sleek mermaid hair to sculptural nails, the hair and make-up looks will give you serious envy

There is nothing like a music video to really get the creative beauty juices flowing. From Missy Elliot’s jump rope hair in the video for “Throw it Back” to Lil Nas X channeling Marie Antoniette’s towering rococo hair to lap dance for the devil in “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” to every single look in Beyoncé’s Black is King, we’ve witnessed some veritable beauty feasts for the eyes over the last few years. 

Now there’s a new video to add to the list: Normani’s latest single “Wild Side” featuring Cardi B and a plethora of amazing hair and beauty looks. Directed by Tanu Muino and choreographed by Sean Bankhead, “Wild Side” is Normani’s first solo single since 2019’s “Motivation”. The homage-paying “Motivation” video featuring tributes to icons like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez set the bar high, but the “Wild Side” video does not disappoint and even led Lil Nas X to tweet that it is “the best video I have ever seen in my entire life”.

From super long, super sleek mermaid hair and sculptural nails by Sojin Oh to a Debra Paget in The Indian Tomb reference, Normani and Cardi look head-to-toe incredible. The looks come courtesy of the beauty team including make-up artist Priscilla Ono and hair stylist Yusef Williams for Normani, and longtime collaborators hairstylist Tokyo Stylez and make-up artist Erika Roman for Cardi. 

Here are the best beauty moments.
