In true #hotgirl fashion, Megan Thee Stallion always serves “Body” and hair. The rapper is known for being versatile with her hairstyles and experimenting with every look imaginable, from red curly wigs to butt-length braids, and her own natural curls.
In her new music video for “Cry Baby” featuring DaBaby, Meg’s hairstyles have our jaws on the floor.
There’s the loose waves her go-to hairstylist Kellon Deryck accessorized with a floral crown, and snatched pigtails tied with ballies. But we paused the video on the rapper’s super-long, knee-length platinum blonde wig styled with bangs and hand-painted pastel flowers.

Deryck leaned into the video’s toy store theme with this style. “The video theme is ‘dolls and toys coming to life,’ so we went with a Malibu Barbie theme for this look,” he exclusively tells InStyle.
The hairstylist started with a 50 inch Flawless Illusion full lace 613 blonde wig as the base, and used a custom stencil to hand-paint the pastel pink and blue daisies with mix of #mydentity hair dyes. In total, it took Deryck two hours to add the flowers to the wig’s length.
After styling the wig, Deryck spritzed it #mydentity My Control Medium Sculpting Hairspray to lock it in. Then, he sprayed it with #mydentity MyStardust Intense Shine Spray to bring out the colors of the flowers. But even if you don’t have flowers painted on your wig or actual hair, this shine spray is still great for enhancing your current color.
Deryck finished things off by running #mydentity MyHairLube Finishing Hair Oil over any flyaways for a super-sleek finish.
Butt length hair (or longer in the case of Meg’s blonde wig) is having a moment, but it’ll cost ya.
“This length of hair is super expensive and very hard to find, especially during the pandemic,” says Deryck. “Most celebs want a look that is hard to recreate. Anything over 50” is going to cost big bucks!
