Just when we thought Rihanna had pushed every style and beauty limit under the sun, she managed to surprise us once more: By debuting a brand new gray hairstyle on her Instagram.

“New color ice grey ish, call it #Brr,” she wrote on the first shot of her new locks, which appeared to be an allover ash-gray color plus some matching extensions.

In subsequent photos the star posted, it became clear that the look is a twist on ombré hair color, with dark roots fading gradually into the pale hue.

“Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all! #brrr,” she wrote on one photo, and added on another “‘Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day.’”

Rihanna’s not the first star to go gray for fun — Kelly Osbourne did it more than a year ago, so now we’re wondering who will be next. Selena Gomez? Kim Kardashian? Kiernan Shipka?

Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s latest look?

Yuck! You can be gray when you’re old.

It’s not her real hair. We all know that for sure. However, I wonder if maybe her pot smoking is the reason the hair changed to SMOKEY grey?

Nancy on

It’s not even her hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe it’s just me but ever since her incident with Chris Brown she just seems like such a depressed person…I miss the old RiRi :(

That’s a wig…look at how far back the hairline is. It looks like it’s sliding off her big forehead.

I really don’t get the fixation on this chic. Seems all she does is stay stoned & brag about it. And, of course, runs back to her abuser at the drop of a hat! Heck, she doesn’t have hardly any real hair, just extensions after extensions after extensions.

Is she becoming a nut like LiLo and Amanda Bynes? Asking an honest question here. Has Chris Brown hit her so many times, she’s become crazy?

Terry on

I’m so tired of seeing Rihanna! Anyway she dresses or colors her hair I’m just sick of her. Something about her has always disturbed me!

Theresa on

She is sexy no matter what color her hair is!!!

Well if looking like an 80 yr old woman is what she wanted, consider it achieved.
