It seems that Rihanna has been putting in some work lately: she unveiled an exciting Savage X Fenty campaign with all-women motorcycle crew Caramel Curves and the new Fenty Eau de Parfum within the past month. In the midst of her exciting business ventures, the Bajan singer has also been playing around with hairstyles, including a gorgeous pixie cut and dramatic, edgy sideburns. Now the entrepreneur is serving a whole new look with a braided hairstyle that’s more than just your average box braids.
In celebration of the new Fenty fragrance selling out, Rihanna shared a few pictures of herself sitting in a very comfortable-looking bed and eating what looks like caviar. The 33-year-old looks pretty casual in a black, printed hoodie, sunglasses, and beautiful braids. These aren’t just box braids, at least from what we can see. Rihanna’s hair was cornrowed in a few different designs and directions — you can see somewhat of a zig-zag design if you look closely. There are a few braids that fall forward, framing either side of her face. The hair is braided halfway down its length, leaving the rest of it to flow freely.
Riri is definitely chilling in this picture, so we don’t see much makeup on her besides her glossy lips. Perhaps she applied a bit of Gloss Bomb before taking the picture. Her skin is glowing, and her arched eyebrows look perfect right above those black shades. What else could you expect from Rihanna?
In the past two years, Rihanna has played around with a few braided looks, and we’re loving this new style that she’s added to the lineup. Summer is the perfect time to have fun with braids because it’s truly too hot to want to deal with anything else, so we can’t wait to see what other cool styles she shows off before the warm days end.
