Looking At Rihanna’s Most Iconic Hair Transformations & Colors Over The Years

Rihanna can do anything. No we’re not talking about her music career or beauty or fashion or acting endeavours (but that too). We’re talking about her hair.

Not only is she a Grammy-winning artist, but she boasts a tremendous fashion and beauty empire, Fenty (and she rocks a runaway). Robyn Rihanna Fenty, singer, actress, and businesswoman has had a ridiculously impressive career. And not to mention all of the hair inspiration she’s been giving us since 2005!

Rihanna has given us iconic fashion looks through the years. But right now, we want to take a moment to look back at some of her equally supreme hairstyles starting from 2005.

Here, everybody, is the likely origin of our collective bangs obsession. Rihanna wears them long with light brown highlights as we all start to see the good girl on the scene.

Riri goes bone straight and sleek, wearing her jet black hair ultra-long. In the same year, Rihanna went wavy but still keeping with the length.

And then came that iconic look. She’s had many but there are few that live in our heads rent-free and we don’t mind. Rihanna went for a layered bob as she started to change her image to an edgier Riri.

Rihanna keeps on with her edgy streak wearing her hair short and styled in a curled faux hawk with a platinum blonde streak. In the same year, we also got the swept pixie cut from the singer.

The bad girl goes for a drastic color transition from her usual, wearing her hair is a strawberry blonde pixie cut straight and layered.

What a time! Rihanna comes in with yet another daring, iconic look wearing her hair cherry-red and curly during the era of her album ‘Loud.’

We see a softer look from Fenty as she opts to rock her hair caramel ombré hair long and in loose bra-strap length curls.

Rihanna attends the iHeartRadio Music Award and we’re given yet another quintessentially Riri look with her hair in Bantu knots and sporting green lipstick.

One of our favorite protective styles, Rihanna wears Fulani braids (cornrows that fall in various directions on the head) and the baby hairs are bussin, okay?

Fifteen years later, from where we started and multiple and consistently fire looks later, Rihanna the multitalented continues to give us outstanding looks. Here Fenty sports her neatly tied back with braid.
