Rihanna is not only a music icon, she's an all-around icon — and now she has a pyramid-shaped trophy to prove it!!
So when she accepted her Icon Award at this year’s AMAs sporting an unusual hairstyle, it had the whole beauty world abuzz!
Rih rocked what is called a “doobie” or “wrap” on her dome, which is basically created by wrapping hair around the cranium and then pinning it in place. The style is mainly used in African American and Latina cultures to preserve straightened hair, so until recently was contained to the home or hair salon.
Some critiqued RiRi for the 'do, saying it should be kept in the bedroom, while others adored it and want to see it tried on different celebs!
But while Rihanna probs doesn’t care what anyone thinks, her hairstylist Ursula Stephen took the time to delve into her hair-iffic inspiration.
Here are the HIGHlights:
