This past summer, Cardi B debuted pink heart-shaped pigtails in an epic video on Instagram and fans went wild. If you haven't already, definitely do yourself a favor and check it out ASAP. Now, folks everywhere are recreating the iconic look and sharing their own amazing versions on social media — including a seven-year-old girl by the name of Samaya "Strawberry" James.

Okay, technically, Samaya's recreation was done by her talented mother, Saj (aka @goghettem_saj), who runs her daughter's account @lilstrawberry302. And Saj nailed the rapper's look perfectly, down to all the ornate details — like the braids woven around each heart-shaped pigtail. The only small difference is that Samaya's wig is a slightly darker shade of pink compared to the one that Cardi B wore in August.

Naturally, Samaya is receiving some major love on her recreation post, which features her next to a photo of Cardi B from the video. Folks are leaving comments like, "She look so freaking cute🥺💓," "Yes sis killed it!!!" and "Of course you did 😍😍😍😍." Countless people tagged Cardi B, as well as the "WAP" singer's hairstylist, Tokyo Stylez.

The rapper ended up seeing the photo and sharing it on her own story. Of course, we can only imagine how excited Saj and Samaya were when they saw it, especially considering how much time and effort clearly went into getting the look just right.
