Bye bye, blonde! Rihanna went back to her basic black hair color over the weekend, adding length and side-swept bangs — and shaving off some strands on the left side of her head.

The singer, currently traveling the world to promote her upcoming film, Battleship, debuted the look during a stop in Yokosuka, Japan, on the USS George Washington on Monday morning.

Rihanna has tried a whole slew of new hair colors in the past two years, dying her hair red in June 2010 for her European tour, going brunette a year later and then trying blonde in February. (Phew!)

However, in March, the singer told PEOPLE she was going to go back to black sooner or later. “Black is easy,” she explained. But there’s definitely another color change on the horizon.

“Navy blue is my color right now,” she added. “Not any blue, not the punk blue. I have yet to see the right one. It does not exist yet!” Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s new do?

the color is very ‘blah’ looking.

blah? It looks like black ink! I think it’s shiny and beautiful. It compliments her skin and eyes.

At least she isn’t trying to be white anymore with the blonde hair.

I am surprised this girl has any hair left.

Rhianna Fan on

This girl is so incredible looking that she could pull off any look. I love everything about her – music, style, etc.

Keep changing things up Rhianna. You inspire all of us to think outside the box.
