Rihanna Steps Out with Brunette Hair: Love It or Hate It?

Rihanna has had us on red alert for the past six months, ever since she stormed the stage in Spain debuting a fiery cropped coif. And while we never would have expected it from the ultimate style chameleon, she stayed true to the color for half of 2010, evolving the style from its original bowl cut, to an extra-long style before trimming it up and going crazy for curls. This week in London, however, the singer stepped out as a brunette–rocking the same bowl cut that was her signature style so many months ago. Later that day she made another public appearance that had her back to red. We always love seeing RiRi change up her style, but want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you prefer Rihanna as a brunette or a redhead?

she looks beautiful no matter what, but i think the brunette color is more flattering than the red. a few streaks of that red color would be cool, but its really hard to pull off that color all over no matter how pretty you are…its very harsh. i dont blame her for trying lots of different looks. shes young and now is time to do it because the older you get, the more difficult it is to wear vivid colors like that.

She is gorgeous, but her hair looks like Justin Bieber…

Glad to see she gave Ronald McDonald his hair color back. She looks pretty now!

Dammit Rihanna, can’t you stick to one style for more than 5 minutes?? LOL I was actually liking the red! If she wants a more natural look, I would say go back to the jet black hair she had in 2007 or even the golden bronze hair she had when she first came out. The dark brown is bleh.

Janet is the only one that rocked that red the right way> I like the brown better on Rihanna. The day of the Velevet Rope is over and done with.

Really?? You need to get a clue to what a “bowl cut” is. The name implies that a cereal bowl was placed over the head and the hair was cut according to the bowl so that all the hair is one length, hence appearing like an upside-down bowl… duh! Pixie, maybe, short shag, somewhat, but “bowl cut”… no way!

Ummmm… Right at Althea. She’s not using her REAL hair for that red nonsense. Those are wigs and hair pieces.
