Rihanna has never been one to shy away from making a bold style statement—especially when it comes to hair. She’s tried pretty much every color from blond to red to gray and almost every style, too—from short to long to bangs. And now, she just added another color to her roster of beauty looks: turquoise mermaid hair.
RiRi first debuted the new hair early Sunday morning, gifting us throughout the day with a few social media posts. In the early hours of the day, the singer posted a video of the look captioning the shot “when yo hurr ready for crop ova'” referring to the Crop Over festival that is celebrated annually in her home of Barbados. The video, naturally, has already been viewed more than 2.6 million times. Another photo posted to Rihanna’s Instagram story Sunday morning gives us a closer look at the blue-green shade, which she paired with a light, shimmery smokey eye and glossy lips.
Finally, on Sunday afternoon, she put up a pic of her hair coordinating extremely well with her blue manicure with the caption “crawpova. ’17.” It’s pretty clear that her followers are fans of the look: in two hours, the photo had already racked up more than 615,000 likes, with commenters calling her “bae” and dishing out a whole lot of fire emojis.

Rihanna’s the latest star to try a colorful look for summer, which has gone technicolor in terms of brightly dyed celebs. In May, Rihanna’s equally bold friend Cara Delevingne temporarily tried out a similar look when she posted a video of herself wearing a long turquoise wig to Instagram. In June, Lena Dunham also Instagrammed a photo of herself wearing a blue-and-purple wig. That same month, Keke Palmer took to social media to show off her new purple buzz cut. And just last month, Alicia Keys debuted some intricate neon braids, while Lady Gaga rocked two-tone blue and orange hair.
We’ll keep you posted with more intel on Rihanna’s new look as we find out more. In the meantime, we have to agree with the fans: the look is just as 🔥 as she is.
