Rihanna’s New, Daring Hair- Is Grey the New Black?
Recently, Rihanna posted an Instagram picture of herself that left everyone going crazy about her new, grey (yes, you read correctly) hair…
“New color ice grey ish, call it #Brrr,” she tweeted. “Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all!” Well, Rihanna seems to want to start some sort of trend here, although there are other celebrities who have been brave enough to try the eccentric look. Kelly Osbourne, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga are amongst some of the stars that have taken on the bold look before.
Although it may be a bit out there, I think it actually suits Rihanna! Is there anything she can’t pull off? I’m wondering if Rihanna is on a controversial spiral on social media here. She’s tweeted pictures of marijuana, vague images of her and Chris Brown and she’s lashed out at singer, Ciara and Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown’s current reported girlfriend. I think she’s just having a bit fun, in my opinion. There’s nothing wrong with trying a new look or being yourself on social media, especially when you’re an international superstar.
Apart from this phase of grey hair, I think Rihanna’s probably been one of the most versatile celebrities when it comes to hairstyles. Here are a few of my favourites:
4) Simple, Mid-length
Here is a picture I took of Rihanna performing at last year’s Hackney Weekend, where she rocked a fringe and straight brunette, shoulder-length hair. She looked gorgeous as the crowds went insane over her stage-presence!
3) Short and Sassy
Who can forget the days when Rihanna sported short hair? I think Rihanna made masculine the new feminine with her androgynous look.
2) Au naturel
Back in 2006, Rihanna had just left Barbados and started becoming world-famous for her talents. Here, at the World Music Awards, I can’t help but love her volumized, wavy hair.
1) Blonde Bombshell
Rihanna may have tweeted about her grey hair ruling over all things blonde but let’s not forget that she rocked a blonde, wavy look just a few weeks ago. I adore her hair when it’s blonde and I think it looks amazing with her caramel complexion, especially here when it’s perfectly styled. I love how Rihanna throws on a beanie and some shades to downplay the look but she’ll always look like a million dollars.
