Rihanna not only shows her versatility and range as a musical artist, she is also a fashion and hair trendsetter. Whether stepping onto the red carpet or snapped by the paparazzi on the street, all eyes are on her to see her style du jour. One thing is consistent among her chameleon-like appearances: She always shines bright like a diamond. Browse through our gallery of some of Rihanna's hottest looks from the past 10 years for some style inspiration.
A deep side part sweeps the fringe across the forehead and into a low pony. Use a small amount of styling gel and a fine-toothed comb to create a glossy shine. For the perfect pony, take a small section of hair from the underside to wrap around and cover your elastic band. Secure with a tiny bobby pin.
Long Curls - Screen Siren
The classic style is a nod to Old Hollywood screen sirens. Carve in a deep side part and curl the hair on a 1-inch curling iron. Allow the curls to cool completely before brushing with a soft-bristle brush to create this classic, coveted look at red-carpet events. Rihanna adds her own style with gray and silver highlights
Braided Bliss - Long Braided Hairstyle
This braids perfectly frame Rihanna's face and then combine into one big asymetric brand. If you hair is not as long as you'd like, clip in a few extensions to create the lusciously long braid. A small sprinkle of a texturizing powder gives you a great grip while braiding
Romantic Rendezvous - Wavy Updo
A center part is featured as loose curls gently drop down in this softly pinned up romantic style. The curls frame the face and graze the shoulders. To get this look, spray each section with a working hairspray and wrap small sections around a 1-inch curling wand to create perfect tendrils
Fresh and Fun
Pulling your fringe back like this gives you a youthful appearance. Cross your bobby pins in an "X" to secure the hair.
This style is sleek and glamorous. To create your own big bun, use a donut-shaped hair pad. Slide the hair pad over your ponytail, pin the pad down and wrap the hair over it to cover it. Pin to secure
This sky-high bun exudes elegance and class, and is a wonderful style to show off a beautiful neckline and add a few inches to your height. Apply your styling product and blow-dry hair away from your face to eliminate any chance of flyaway fringe
Natural textures are gorgeous. This look, however, is a bit overwhelming for Rihanna. The hairstyle is distracting and covers up too much of her gorgeous face.
A clean center part and super-straight, long locks exude sex appeal. Be sure to use a heat protectant and follow your comb for a perfectly flat-ironed finish. Finish with a shine spray for a reflective shine.
