From her fierce, fiery red bob back in the early 2010s to her iconic redefinition of maternity wear throughout her second pregnancy, Rihanna is always starting trends and experimenting with high-fashion, beauty-forward looks. Every time Rihanna debuts a new look, it’s immediately a social media frenzy, and rightfully so, and this time is no different as the “Love On the Brain” singer stepped out with long, blonde strands to lighten up our looming winter blues.
Rihanna Re-Enters Her Blonde Era With Waist-Length, Golden Strands
The role of paparazzi in popular culture is a finicky thing, but when they give us a first glance at one of our style icons’ new looks, we thank them. Just a few days ago, Rihanna was snapped stepping out of a car rocking a hair-do unlike anything we’ve seen from her before. With luxurious strands reaching past her waist, the singer and Fenty Beauty owner debuted a golden blonde hue on her luscious mane.
The star’s new shade seems to be that of the viral “honey blonde” moment, which features an overall, blonde look with hints of brown and auburn to give a more dimensional, deeper appearance. It also appears that the new hair moment is Rih’s real hair and not a wig, as her roots seem to be her natural brunette color.
This chic, hair transformation has fans doing a lot of speculation as to what this new era could mean, and I speak for all of us when I say our fingers are crossed that first comes blonde hair, then comes new music.
