Star Hairstyles: Rihanna





Drawing inspiration from the hair styles of our favorite stars and celebrities has become a national past time. One such star hair style that’s all the rage is the stylish pop music star, and current Cover Girl, Rihanna. As a young girl, Rihanna loved experimenting with her hairstyles and makeup looks. Her latest creation, called “The Rihanna,” has trendy, fashion-forward women across the country asking for her chic, short and sculptured ‘do.

To Get The Look
If you’re looking for a chic pop-star hairstyle, take a hair styling lesson from Rihanna and watch heads turn when you swing by with her chic, fashion-forward Cover Girl look. For the time challenged, this shapely style looks perfect from all points of view and almost styles itself. To get the look, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with a style cut and shaping.

Let’s Shape It
To get the look, start with a contoured silhouette with tapered neckline, sides and brow-brushing bangs draped over one eye for a seductive look. This stylish ‘do is the perfect shape for those with high cheek bones and angular features like Rihanna. With a few adjustments (trims), as it grows you can find the ideal length and shape for your style.

Let’s Style It
Start with a dab of your favorite styling mousse, or straightening balm if your hair is curly. Comb either through damp hair to dry au natural, or give it a quick blow dry for a smooth, straight look. If your locks look a bit dry or frizzy after a blow dry, give it a once over with a flat iron to tame it. To turn on the shine and add a textured spiky effect, finish with a dab of hair polish or spray pomade and you’ve the look.

Now Let’s Add Makeup
What’s a pop star hairstyle without makeup and accessories? Rihanna loves experimenting with makeup. To light up her stunning hazel eyes, Rihanna uses Cover Girl Exact Black-Gold Light-reflecting Metallic Mascara and Wetsticks Pink Positive Lip Gloss for her Cover Girl smile. To push the style bar to the max, top it off with Ray Ban sun glasses, diamond stud earrings, a chic designer scarf paired with a pale iliac top, brown leather blazer, skinny distressed spandex jeans, neon nail polish, a small butterfly tattoo stylishly under cover, and you’ve got this pop star’s easy breezy Cover Girl look.

Now, Let’s Color It
Nothing can improve your hair’s texture, shine and manageability like hair color. To define the shape and amplify the shine, Rihanna’s natural ash brown hair color is given a radiant hue with a L’Oreal Blue-Black permanent tint. To keep it up, the new growth is colored every four to six weeks. Coloring your hair may cost a few extra dollars but is a small price to pay for a pop star color. After all, aren’t you worth it?
This fashion-forward ‘do pushes the style bar to the max and is ultra sexy to boot. The sculptured silhouette and seductive side-swept bangs are a show-stopper. A quick blow dry or a once over with a flat iron gets the look. The radiant blue-black color defines the shape and amplifies the shine. This sassy ‘do is a dude magnet. So don’t be surprised to see men stop dead in their tracks when you swing by looking oh-so chic sporting Rihanna’s sassy pop star style.
