It’s official—we’re head over heels in love with Rihanna’s fiery red locks. (We never thought we’d say that!) With these sexy scarlet strands, she has certainly solidified herself as a total tress trailblazer—maybe even The Only Girl In The World who can pull off such a lively look. Here, a few of our favorites.
If anyone can pull off an undercut, it’s Rihanna. The What’s My Name-singer rocked a bold bowl cut while performing in Spain, but pulled it all back while out to dinner in Los Angeles with then-boyfriend Matt Kemp.
Here’s one way to refresh day-old ringlets—fluff them up and smile! Rihanna wears pretty plush tousled curls with flair and panache. Check out the amazing net barrette she rocked in her What’s My Name video!
Dramatic updos aren’t for the faint of heart. Good thing Rihanna knows how to make a bushy beehive sublimely sexy. Brushed neat for a red carpet appearance, or worn a bit loose for a shopping excursion; Brigitte Bardot would be so proud.
When in doubt, bling it out! The Love The Way You Lie singer knows how to work shiny hair accessories. While performing at the AMA’s she topped off her look with a sparkly headband, and when out on the town wore a supersize sequined barrette.
Anyone who’s ever cut their hair short fully understands the phrase ‘growing pains’. Rihanna took a shortcut and gracefully grew out her crimson pixie crop with extensions, quite obviously.
We think one of the sexiest ways a girl can wear her lengthy fringe is swept to the side over one eye. Guess Rihanna agrees—she paired her bangs with sexy pompadour-ponytail combo in Paris, and lush pinned-up curls piled high in London.
Thin, wispy bangs have been all the rage as of late, but the norm isn’t Rihanna’s forte, is it? Plus, wearing her fringe full and heavy over her forehead really emphasizes her beautiful sage green eyes.
We haven’t seen lengthy enflamed locks look this sexy since a certain curvy cartoon temptress sashayed across the screen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Rihanna smolders with straight strands and has a bit of fun with a sassy fishtail braid.
Perhaps now she’s transitioning to a darker hue? The sexy chanteuse-slash-chameleon swapped her vibrant poppy shade of red for a more understated wine hue. And we’re obsessed just the same.
