Rihanna's Greatest Hairstyles - See Her Hair Evolution In Pictures

06 September 2012 by

Need a constant source of hairspiration? Look no further than queen of hairstyles, Rihanna. The songstress keeps a hair-do for barely a week before she gets bored and adds a curl, a weave or a whole new colour to her tresses. We've seen her go from brunette to red to blonde and back again with the odd under-cut and mega quiff along the way. How far she's come from the fluffy-haired teen we saw when she first landed on Planet Pop back in 2006. So let's pay homage to Rihanna's finest beauty moments by remembering her hair history in the gallery >>
