Rihanna Gives Waist-Length Blonde Hair a Thumbs up This Season


Just when you thought Rihanna had done it all, the multi-hyphenate gives us a fresh new look.

This weekend, the musician and beauty mogul stepped out in sporting a brand new hair color. Rihanna debuted glossy, waist-length blonde locks with dark roots during an outing in Los Angeles. The star paired her new mane with an equally strong beauty look: winged copper-brown smoky eyes, ombré lips in chocolate, and coral blush. As for her outfit, Rihanna stayed true to her aesthetic with cosy layers. Her picks included a gray hoodie, statement printed jeans, and a long creme caramel jacket to round things off. Neon green nails added the perfect element of drama to her look.


Around the same time, Rihanna also stepped out a second time in head-to-toe black — an ebony turtleneck, body-skimming leggings, and a glossy leather trench paired with sparkling silver and black strappy heels — and the look really helped her new locks pop. This time around, the mom-of-two accentuated her warm blonde locks with intense cat eyes, glossy rust red lips, and lots of diamonds.


While many are comparing Rihanna’s new look to Jennifer Aniston’s poker straight do from Friends, others are drawing parallels between 2023 Rihanna and Pon de Replay Rihanna circa 2005 — though it’s clear to all that the 2023 edition of her look carries a much sleeker, grown-up finish. Regardless of which era you prefer, it’s safe to say that the new look is bound to inspire fans to try honey shades this season.
