While I touched upon a few hot Beauty Trends in my AOL post, there were so many more that came onto the scene in ’09!

Let’s take a quick beauty walk down memory lane:

1. Minx Nails

Solange Minx Nails
The cool nail coverings were a certified celeb fave, with everyone from Solange to Sheree Whitfield rocking the look in patterns or plain. Ever creative, a few stars even made their Minx political…

90’s staple dark plum lipstick made a certified comeback in the ’09, as Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, and Melody Thornton were spotted sporting the sultry look.

3. Shaved Hairstyles

Hip Hop starlets couldn’t seem to get enough of the clippers! While Solange created a controversy by completely lopping her locks off, most, including Cassie, Keyshia, and Lala, went for the half shaved look.

4. Neon Pedicures

While Minx mani’s made waves, celebs also got creative with their pedi’s, wearing bright yellow, pink, and orange to play up their red carpet looks.

5. Tattoos


Celebs opted for primly placed tattoos to subtly assert their personality. Their new ink sparked discussions here on the Fashion Bomb on the intersection of Tattoos and Fashion.

  1. I still maintain that the half shaved head was whack. I don’t care who rocks that style, it was a whack trend. Only certain chicks can pull off that look…it ain’t for everybody.
