Best Rihanna Hairstyles
When it comes to Rihanna the first word that comes to mind is ICON. She is not only a music icon but a style icon as well. When she came into the industry at the young age of 16 we knew she was a force to be reckoned with. From her crazy fashion sense to her many hairstyles, she is really unpredictable. She is the one celebrity who keeps us on our toes, thinking “what will she wear next?”. Rihanna can rock a couture dress on the red carpet and also make a simple T-shirt and a pair of denim look high fashion. We are so excited to see what she will be throwing our way in 2016. She not only inspires us to embrace our inner rebel but she inspires women all around the world. Because we admire her impeccable style so much we have put together a list of 25 of our favorite Rihanna hairstyles.

Here is Rihanna wearing is tapered side swept Mohawk with shaved side of head. This jet black Mohawk is completed with light curls and a slight side swept bang. This look really compliments her smaller framed face.

Here is a simple curly Ombre style. This dark brown with blonde highlights is perfect for the fall season. Achieve these curls by using a wand curler or even pipe cleaners.

We love this fun and vibrant red updo. She has medium sized curls that are pinned with stray pieces framing her face. This really gives her a retro “dollish” look.
5Ombre half do
Here is Riri sporting these long honey romance curls. This style is both edgy and soft. We love how she made this look vampy by adding a red lip with a brown undertone.
6Simple highlighted wrap
Remember the simple wrap in the early 2000’s? Here is a softer look of Rihanna in her earlier days. This color really compliments her golden skin tone and does not age her one bit.
7Fire orange look
How cute is this fire orange tone? Rihanna can literally pull off any color. The faux roller look on the temples really gives this look some personality. The gold necklace and peach tone lip gives this look a pop.
