Throughout her career, Rihanna has made her mark as a hair chameleon with her frequent changes in cut and color. This weekend, she premiered a new jet-black hue as she traveled to Japan doing press for her film Battleship. Even though the look is more serious than her previous platinum blond with peekaboo roots, she keeps it fresh and funky with shaved sides.
Other celebrities who have opted for shaved strands run the gamut from Jada Pinkett-Smith to Alice Dellal and Cassie. For Rihanna, who chronicled the transformation on her Instagram page, this look is reminiscent of her short cut from several years back that yielded many copycats. But the songstress admitted on her Twitter page that she isn't quite ready for the big chop yet.
