Saweetie debuted a sleek new look that’s both dramatic and darkly elegant. On Instagram, she shared a photo of her latest hairstyle: long, straight, midnight-black hair with blunt bangs that rest just above her brows. The new style is a marked departure from the loose and feathered curtain bangs trend that has dominated social media in recent years.
Her latest appearance featured an ensemble that matched the dark glamour of her new hairstyle. Dressed in an all-black outfit, the original Icy Girl emphasized the dramatic flair with a deep-cut draped top by Los Angeles brand Futura By Dionne, decorated with a silver embellishment and gothic-style cross that aligned perfectly with the layers of chunky chain necklaces from Average Citizen.
Saweetie’s Gothic Glam
The creation of Saweetie’s chic and Cleopatra-esque hairstyle is credited to celebrity hairstylist Essence Jourdan, whose clientele includes stars like Cardi B, Coi Leray, and Skai Jackson. Opting for a length that adds extra drama, Saweetie paired the new hairstyle with a slinky pair of noir pants from Laquan Smith. Her entire ensemble was styled by the celebrity stylist duo Reginald Reisman and Matthew Riesman.
Adding to the monochrome theme, Saweetie’s accessories were a masterclass in minimalism and maximalism. Her eye-catching silver accessories, fit for an icy queen, were accentuated by a Coperni x Heven glass bag — a devil horn version of the designer’s iconic mini swipe bag made entirely of glass. According to the musician’s Instagram caption, the heavy bag added a statement to her minimalist yet maximalist look.
Her makeup, free of color and shimmer, comprised glossy lips, a pair of fluffy lashes, and a pointy cat eye, as sharp as a vampire’s fang. The only pop of color came from her long, blood-red, coffin-shaped nails, with a metallic finish that harked back to the cat-eye nail trend of 2019.
The impact of Saweetie’s new style was described by one version as akin to a “glam gothic vampire,” reflecting the darker, more subdued aesthetic she embraced. Her previously colorful and loud looks were replaced with a two-piece black set with hair to match.
