When it comes to her fashion and her hair, Rihanna likes to take risks. She isn’t really into the status quo; however, she does like to doll herself up and feel sexy. Since she first landed on the scene with her debut song “Pon de Replay,” she has been a pioneer with her various hairstyles. She likes to play with different cuts and colors, sometimes debuting numerous new styles in a single year. We really think that she is one of the few stars out there who is absolutely fearless with her hair. Because of this, we decided to take a look at her evolution!
33rd Annual AMA American Music Awards Nominations – 2005
It has been years since Rihanna looked this fresh-faced and innocent. Back in 2005, she looked like an ordinary teenager. She had a simple layered haircut with side-swept bangs. Her clothes were also pretty ordinary, as was her makeup. Without the crazy hair and fashion, she’s pretty darn cute!
Rihanna’s career was really starting to take off in 2005, after Def Jam Records had signed her the year before. Her single “Pon de Replay” charted successfully worldwide, reaching the top five in fifteen countries. Her debut album Music of the Sun sold over two million copies and she then went on tour with Gwen Stefani. Rolling Stone magazine gave the album two and a half out of five stars, calling it “a seductive mix of big-voiced R&B and souped-up island riddims – what Beyoncé might have sounded like if she had grown up in the West Indies and skipped the whole Destiny’s Child thing.”Everett Collection / Shutterstock.com
