    I can't recognize my friend's profile picture and I say: Wow, I didn't even recogniz

    I can't recognize my friend's profile picture and I say:

    Wow, I didn't even recognize you in that profile picture, because you have a different style in that profile picture. It's more hip hop than usual.

    VS

    Wow, I didn't even recognize you in that profile picture, because you have a different style in that profile picture. It's a more hip hop style than what you usually wear.

    (Because normally she dresses very formal)

    Are both okay?

    You don't need to repeat "in that profile picture".
    I would be inclined to give "Wow!" an exclamation mark, although your form is common and, in my opinion, not incorrect.
    I think that "style" is fine, but maybe "look" is a very natural alternative here.
    I was tempted to hyphenate "hip-hop", but it seems to be written both ways in all sorts of contexts.

    "Wow! I didn't even recognize you in that profile picture because you have a different look. It's more hip hop than usual."

    I see no need for 'even'.
