She has been turning heads ever since she began her career in the music industry back in 2005. Rihanna is constantly changing her hairstyle, and has been seen sporting blunt bobs, cherry-red curls, blond quiffs, and everything in between. Due to her constant experimentation with the most difficult of trends, Rihanna has been able to pull off a wide variety of edgy, glamorous, and sometimes even risqué styles. Here we'll take a look at the top style of each year, starting in 2006 until today.
2006 - Long, loose tresses with middle part
In December 2006, Rihanna was just becoming an international pop sensation. During this time, she was seen sporting several long styles, but one of the most popular was the middle part. Her dark long, loose tresses flowed down her back and were super straight and sleek.
2007 - Asymmetrical bob
Rihanna's asymmetrical bob in May 2007 remained one of her signature styles. The ultra-sleek bob suited her very well. She wore it longer on the left and shorter on the right. Her black hair was worn straight and it framed her diamond face.
2008 - Sideswept pixie cut
Rihanna sported a sexy swideswept pixie cut in March 2008. Her black hair was perfectly layered to add volume to the top and sides. Her bangs were swept forward and to the side to hide her larger forehead and give definition to her facial features.
2009 - All-over blond
In November 2009, Rihanna went blond and once again, cut her hair. This time, she dyed her hair a golden blond with her darker, natural hair on the sides. She wore the top long and her tresses framed her face. On one side, she cut her hair down short with a buzz-cut.
2010 - Curly red tresses
November 2010 was one of Rihanna's best years for hairstyles. She sported cherry-red hair in sexy, loose curls. She was commonly seen with her hair in an up-do, loose bun, tied with a decorative ribbon around her head. Loose red curls hung around her face.
2011 - Pumped up curls
In February 2011, Rihanna stepped up her curly style with a volumous hairstyle full of tighter curls. Her dark spirals were tinted in red hair dye that complimented her cocoa skin quite well. She wore her pumped up curls loose and free in a messy, yet highly trendy way.
2012 - Long, layered bleach blond with bangs
Rihanna went back to blond in February 2012. She has been seen with her hair long, layered and straight with blunt bangs, as well as with beachy waves. Her bleach blond tresses have darker roots that show her natural hair color. Even as a blond, Rihanna rocks her new style.
