Rihanna reigns supreme in my book. Because of her, I know it's possible to be more than a triple threat. This singer, actress, fashion designer, and makeup maven epitomizes everything when it comes to continuously owning the game. Every time RiRi debuts a new 'do, we can't help but stop and stare—she kills it every single time. A quick scroll through my saved Instagram photos is proof that I'm forever in awe of her ever-changing hairstyles. Oh, and you already know it goes down in the shower when I'm belting out my fave lines from Anti.
This is how a Rihanna sighting usually goes: Just when you think she couldn't look any better, boom—she fools you with another drop-dead-gorgeous look. This woman does not lose, and I'm totally cool with her winning every time. She's a true testament to how cool it looks when you're a hair chameleon and own TF out of every single style. If you've been overthinking a hair switch-up, let this be all the badass hair inspo you need to go for it.
Who says a strong hair flip is a thing of the past? Rihanna proves this style is equal parts dope and timeless.
One of the oldest tricks in the game, this slicked-back high ponytail will turn any bad hair day good.
RiRi looks ethereal and angelic in this topknot elevated with a side of bangs.
Did you also just add a black leather beret to your online shopping cart?
She's giving us all the feels with these stunning faux dreadlocks. It's like every style is made for her.
Bone-straight strands and a side part: classic.
And just like that, she goes from extra-long extensions to an effortless, tousled bob. It's impossible to pick a favorite, but short-hair Rihanna is definitely up there in the ranks.
Have you ever seen hairpins look more elegant? This adorned style is simply iconic.
This time Rihanna rocked a sleek, chin-length bob with a classic middle part. This face-framing style is so flattering.
You can't talk about Rihanna's hairstyles without harking back to this major moment in red carpet history. Never forget the time she stepped on the red carpet in a crystal-encrusted headscarf.
This is how you take a half-up, half-down hairstyle to the next level: Bantu knots. And okay, we know this particular story isn't about makeup, but how can we not acknowledge her badass black lipstick? So good.
Rihanna rocked the hell out of this pink pixie cut, and now I'm convinced to try a hair colour for once.
Rihanna broke the internet when this photo of her Bantu knots dropped. It's representation of this Afrocentric style done right.
Hack to no-fuss curls? Throw them in a loose, high pony like Ri's and let each spiral do its thing.
Just in case you needed more convincing that hair flips will always be in. And this headpiece…
Yes to long, luscious, and textured curls. Yes to the black and brown ombré. Yes to the drama.
Back in the day, Rihanna wore a mean pixie. On this occasion, she took things to the next level with this mohawk-inspired look.
We lost count on how many hair colors we're on at this point. Only a cool cat like Rihanna can pull off a honey blonde paired with dark roots.
We're throwing it back to the 2011 Met Gala when she looked like she dropped from the heavens with this side French braid.
Red-haired Rihanna was a vibe. We vote she brings this style back because those curls are sitting so pretty.
I don't know about you, but recounting all of Rihanna's most iconic styles has me dreaming of my next major hair moment. If you're on the same wave, whatever you do next, don't play it safe. Own it like Rihanna.
