Rihanna Changes Her Hairstyle to Epic Blonde with Pixie Haircut Transformation

Rihanna has just introduced a new hairstyle…

The 36-year-old artist showcased her fresh and chic look while strolling in Santa Monica, Calif., on March 22. Rihanna, who first debuted honey blonde hair in November, appeared with a pixie haircut.

The Grammy winner, who has previously sported short hair, donned a black baseball jersey under a black fur Gucci jacket, paired with blue jeans and black high-heeled shoes adorned with crystals from Gucci. She completed her look with oval-framed black sunglasses from Balenciaga.

Rihanna was seen more than three weeks after she performed her first full concert in nearly a decade. The singer performed at a private pre-wedding party for Asia’s richest family, businessman Mukesh Ambani’s family, in her homeland, India.

“The show was the best,” she told fans after the performance on March 1. “I haven’t done a real show in eight years.”

During her performance, Rihanna delivered hits like “Bitch Better Have My Money” and “Diamonds” as well as “All of the Lights.”

The singer, who last released an album in 2016 and dropped her latest tracks “Born Again” and “Lift Me Up” — from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack — in 2022, has in recent years focused on her fashion and beauty businesses as well as raising her young children with A$AP Rocky. They are parents to son RZA Athelston, 22 months, and Riot Rose, 7 months.

“I think we’ve done a great job of collaborating and making babies,” the rapper told Complex in November. “I think it’s our best creation so far. There’s nothing better out there, no design.”

In February, A$AP gave a glimmer of hope to fans awaiting new music from Rihanna. During his visit to Paris, when asked by someone about the singer’s ninth album, the rapper replied that his partner is “working on it!”
