Before I get into this post I just wanna say to all you die hard Rihanna fans that I'm not a "hater" and I admire Rihanna as an artist. I also believe that Rihanna is one of a few stars that can adapt to various trends and works it as if it was made for her. Finally, I have all her albums and a couple of her songs are in my top played iTunes list. Now that I'm done grovelling, it's time to get down to business; so Rihanna's been trying out this red hair for a hot minute and I for one am not buying it.

I've blogged about Rihanna's bodged hair before; she obviously didn't read that post because if she had this problem would've been resolved. When I last touched on this subject she was rocking a little curly 'fro and I didn't love it but I liked it. Following on from that, she then rocked the hairstyle in the picture above, and as we can see it's not a good look for her. The main reason why that hairstyle doesn't work is because (and I apologise if that comes out rude) Rihanna's got a big forehead. Now some people can rock big foreheads - I'll get back to you with an example - but Rihanna isn't one of them. Another reason why this hairstyle doesn't quite work is because it's very granny-fied.

*Sighs* This ponytail is wrong on sooo many levels. Firstly, ponytails are supposed to be slick. Secondly, I don't know where Rihanna's hairdresser, and I'm using that term extremely loosely, got that piece of weave that he or she stuck on the back of Rihanna's head; somebody needs to get fired. Finally, Rihanna obviously doesn't have any "real" friends because if she did someone would've have told her, "Oooh naa naa" - point blank, Rihanna needs to fix up and stop acting like her hair looks nice and find her way to a proper hairdresser's chair ASAP!
As J. Cole would say, girl you loosing your balance; Rihanna's it's time to go back to what you do best - short hair (preferably with a fringe to cover up your forehead). I was going to end this post by saying, as many say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", but as I'm not a total bitch, I'll end this post by uploading Rihanna's performance from the NBA All Star Game. I can't deny that I enjoyed the performance and I believe Rihanna did a good job but she still can't sing and even if she could sing I'm not looking past that ponytail. Hmmm...maybe I am a bit of a bitch.
