It’s a natural instinct to want to change your hair with the seasonal shift, which might be why Rihanna just stepped out with freshly cut bangs as fall is setting in. It may also have something to do with the fact that bangs are one of the most popular celebrity hair trends as of late. Or perhaps she’s just tired of doing her eyebrows? Regardless, she looks amazing with choppy fringe.
Thursday evening at Paris Fashion Week, the singer turned fashion designer appeared at a party celebrating the new Fenty pop-up at Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées. She arrived in a full dark denim ensemble with a classi red lip and chunky silver jewelry. Her hair is long and shiny, highlighting her new style. As if fully leaning into French-girl style, Rihanna opted for a choppy, overgrown look for her bangs rather than a straight-across cut.
The lash-skimming fringe also frames her face nicely, with longer pieces on the side to create a more blended look with her layered hairstyle. There’s no word yet on which stylist is responsible for the gorgeous cut, but we’d venture to guess it’s the work of Yusef Williams. Williams is RiRi’s longtime hairstylist, who styled the star for her Diamond Ball event earlier this month.
And while Rihanna has tried a number of bold beauty looks — everything from a black pixie to a blonde mohawk to bright red curls — this is perhaps one of most approachable styles. She joins the ranks of other celebrities to try out bangs this year: Hailey Baldwin, Hilary Duff, and Kendall Jenner have all made the chop. And her new look definitely solidifies the fact that blunt bangs will continue to fill our feeds this fall.
