Rihanna, one of hip hop’s sexiest females, has truly made short hair sexy again. While most stars would shy away from making a drastic cut, Rihanna has embraced short styles and looked gorgeous while doing it. Her previously long and wavy locks are now cropped short and straight. Rihanna first made a change back in 2007, when she adopted an edgy bob-like cut similar to the one Victoria Beckham has been sporting.
Then, at the 2008 NRJ Music Awards, she was seen sporting her shortest look yet. With the back razored short and the front creating long bangs across her face, the singer found a way to make even the most daring cut look chic and elegant.
On anyone else this look might have looked masculine, but Rihanna pulls it off with grace and style. What exactly is the key to Rihanna’s dramatic change? Her stylist attributes her look to great products. To make her wavy locks transform into a sleek crop requires a high-end straightening iron and quality relaxing balm.
The end result is well worth the work, though, and few could argue that Rihanna looks anything less than dazzling with her short ‘do.
