Seeing Bad Bunny live isn’t just a concert — it’s a cultural experience, one for which his fans are willing to pull every stop possible when it comes to their wardrobe, hair, and makeup. Many buy entirely new outfits just for the occasion, have their makeup done for them, and — in many cases – hire a very specific hairstylist to give them a very specific hairstyle. That hairstylist would be Nicole Morales.
If you search “Bad Bunny hairstyles” on TikTok, you won’t find videos of the singer’s own hairstyles — you’ll come across Morales’s account instead.

The TikTok featured a hairstyle of a concertgoer that included those aforementioned butterfly hair clips, tinsel, mermaid waves, bubble pigtails, and glitter hairspray.
