Bet You Don't Remember These Rihanna Hairstyles

I'm pretty convinced that Rihanna changes her 'do daily. Rihanna's many hairstyles suggest that she is super non-committal when it comes to her coif. She swaps out length, color, and style with the kind of frequency that might make most of us cringe. All that processing, coloring, chemicals, and applying possible extensions is absolute murder on one's natural locks — but I'm so glad she does it for us.

Rihanna certainly has some signatures look, like her pixie cut, which showcases her stunning, fine features. That's a style she has revisited several times through the years. The "American Oxygen" singer also tends to play with various shades of red, often favoring a fire engine hue. She'll also have fun with several variations of the bob, be it asymmetrical or chin-length, with clean lines and bangs.

Since RiRi has had so many hairdos since bursting on the scene, it's, like, insanely hard to keep track of them all. While we may vividly recall those aforementioned styles, there are plenty of cuts and colors that I've straight up forgotten about. Here are 17 Rihanna hairstyles you might have missed, just by blinking.

1. The Fire Engine Red Lob

Lobs are so "in" with celebs right now, but Rihanna did a flame-hued lob ages ago. Even with the bold color, it was incredibly pretty.

2. The Head-Hugging Bob

One of her earlier styles was this head-hugging, straight bob.

3. The Anna Wintour Bob

The pop starlet has worn a long bob with bangs pretty regularly, but remember when she did an Anna Wintour bob, with heavy bangs and in a chin length? It was severe, but she worked it like she always does. Maybe this cut is why Wintour made Rih a Vogue cover girl!

4. The Perfect Asymmetry

Rihanna also went with an asymmetrical bob for a brief moment post-Wintour.

5. The Super Long Strands

Rihanna doesn't often go mega-long — but when she does, she leaves an impression, like with these mermaid tendrils.

6. The Mom Shag

This mom shag wasn't my fave Rihanna look, which is probably why I forgot about it. But the fiery color was certainly a loud touch.

7. The Fishtail

Mermaid hair is a thing in 2015, but Rihanna did a while ago during her red phase. She was like Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

8. The Ariana Grande Pony

RiRi did a voluminous ponytail like the one that Ariana Grande is now known for. She rocked it for an NBA All-Star weekend and it was way sexy.

9. The Blonde Shag

A golden shag with visible roots? It was so messy and so rock 'n' roll.

10. The Roots

These big curls were super '70s. They might have been boring if not for those peek-a-boo roots.

11. The Kris-Jenner-Meets-Skrillex


Did the singer look to Kris Jenner for inspo? Skrillex? Both?

12. The Kris Jenner Part 2

OK, this time she was totally doing the Kris Jenner 'do.

13. The Curl Girl

Defined spiral curls? That's not something RiRi pumps very often, and I'm way into it.

14. The Two-Toned 'Do

Two-toned hair was so mid-'00s, and RiRi rocked it to the extreme.

15. The Long Pixie

Her pixie generally has short bangs, but she also goes long once in a while.

16. The Even Longer Pixie

Her bangs fell well past her brows and lashes and into her eyes. It had a very '80s, helmet-y vibe.

17. The Brown Waves

Rihanna Grande again! RiRi's half up, half down do was so pretty.

How was that for your walk down the memory lane that is Rihanna's hair?
