Rihanna: My Style Timeline
As her career was taking off, Rihanna maintained a down-to-earth, innocent look with natural waves as she arrived at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.
The “S.O.S” singer livened things up – letting her hair go extremely curly and long – for the MTV European Music Awards in Copenhagen.
Deciding her old image was “girlie and boring” the singer showed up to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in L.A. with a new edgy asymmetrical haircut and smoky eyes, which she calls her “bad girl look.”
Loving her short bob (“I couldn’t wait to cut my hair, I was so anxious,” she told PEOPLE), Rihanna adds bangs and a serious pose at the MTV Movie Awards.
Though preparing for a “new look for the fall,” which will be softer and more mellow, Rihanna maintained her favorite style – a short-cropped bob and smoky makeup – for the Running Wide Open fundraising event at the California Speedway.
