Hair is parted in the middle and each side is slicked back and kept tight up against the scalp until ear level where it then transitions into a much fuller natural looking kinky curl. She most likely has extensions or their might be a back piece that pins into place. Her super black hair color is lovely with her skin tone. She is wearing animal print here as she performs during New Year's Eve Weekend at Rain Nightclub in Las Vegas on December 29, 2012.
