10 of Rihanna’s Hottest Hairstyle Looks

Bad Girl Riri, one of our all-time favourite pop-stars has got the crowd talking this week after her surprise appearance at the 2019 BET awards. It wasn’t just her presence that excited people, her new vibrant auburn coloured hair has sparked some rumours!

You may be wondering why the colour of her hair is getting people so excited. Well… a drastic change from Rihanna usually means something exciting is about to happen. Is this a sign that she’s preparing for her music come back? Who’s ready for some new Riri summer tunes, we certainly are!

Rihanna’s new hair look has taken us down memory lane, appreciating all of the different styles she’s rocked over the years. Here are some of our favourites here at Rush:

Cropped Pixie Cut 

Rihanna’s pixie cut has always been one of her signature looks, reminding us of the ‘good girl gone bad’ days. Rihanna was glowing here at a red carpet event showcasing her short hair style with a royal blue dress.

Silver Braids

One of our all-time favourite Rihanna looks has to be this braided style used in one of her music videos. With hints of silver weaving through, there really isn’t anything that she can’t pull off!

Golden Bouncy Balayage

This time a softer look for Riri, but an all time fave. This golden glam was showcased during the Grammy’s 2013 where Rihanna delivered a chic, sophisticated look complimented by a red dress and lip combination. With warm golden undertones running through her hair, this had to be in the top 10!

Chic Chiselled Bob

A very simple look but one that never fails to disappoint. Here, Rihanna is confidently showing off her perfectly shaped middle parted bob. This seems to be Rihanna’s safe option as she’s reverted back to this look multiple times throughout the years.

Long Luscious Red with Block Fringe

We love red on Rihanna! Here she’s rocking a bright cherry colour, cut with a front block fringe during a television appearance. She looked amazing here contrasting the bold hair with a simplistic little black dress.

Rosy Red Pin Curls

Red on Rihanna definitely seems to be a reoccurring trend! For the American Music Awards she mixed it up from the sleek straight hair to some gorgeous tight ringlet curls.

Bleach Blonde Beach Hair

We didn’t know one person could pull of this many different hair colours. One of Rihanna’s most daring looks include this golden blonde style, differing from her usual look, but we love it!

Red Side Plait

This look certainly couldn’t be missed, Rihanna showcased yet again a deep red colour styled into a gorgeous side plait for the opening of the Alexander McQueen: Savage beauty exhibition in New York. A look so easy to create but ultra effective.

Grey Dip Dye

For this look Rihanna gave us something a little different than her usual, with a deep side parting her hair was styled into a perfectly slicked back low pony tail with a grey ombre effect. Showcasing this look for the 2014 Diamond Ball in LA, her frosty grey hair was complimented with a warm burgundy lip and satin dress.

Crazy Carnival Combo

We had to save the best till last as we can all agree Rihanna looked phenomenal at last year’s Notting Hill Carnival. From her embellished mermaid style outfit to her turquoise feathered wings, she looked like an absolute dream. To add to her festival inspired look, she went for face jewels, smokey blue makeup on the eyes and some crazy curls topped with an incredible feathered headpiece.
