Extreme red carpet hairstyles

There are stars who go for pretty with a capital P on the red carpet, and then there are those who like to get a little inventive with their locks and amp up the drama to make a statement. Some of our faves, like Ms. Nicki Minaj, often indulge in full-on wigs to get the desired over-the-top effect. But in this gallery we're highlighting looks that, with the exception of a few extensions, work with what the star already has. Check out these shots and let us know which is your favorite.
