Cardi B clearly wanted to make a good first impression before meeting her first child ... hence her visit to a hair salon.
The "I Like It" rapper hit up Sula's Dominican Hair Salon in Atlanta on Monday ... just one day before giving birth to Kulture Kiari Cephus. Cardi made it clear on social media pregnancy was taking its toll, but she wasn't about to let it stop her from getting her hair did.
Gotta hand it to Cardi ... that's some dedication to her hair game, getting an 11th hour blowout before going into labor. We're guessing she'll have plenty of help caring for Kulture, so she can still hit the salon.
As we reported ... Cardi and Offset named their baby girl after two Migos albums and his real name -- Kiari Cephus.
