Rihanna is a creative mastermind that is the ultimate tea. She loves to innovate and experiment with not only her music but also her personal style and beauty. Recently, the ‘Diamonds’ singer gave us a whole new take on the classic box braids and we just cannot stop obsessing over it.

The half-done box braids, which might look lazy at first, are actually quite a fun and chic hairstyle that has braids in the front and sleek, straight hair at the back. This hairstyle is low-key, super fun and also the right amount of edgy.

While box braids are traditionally sported by African women around the world, there are different variations of the braids that don’t put a lot of pressure on the scalp and can be worn by anyone, regardless of hair texture.

The singer is ending the year on quite an eventful note, with her new, highly-anticipated musical comeback, ‘Lift Me Up’, which was a part of Marvel’s Black Panther’s sequel, Wakanda Forever. The singer-entrepreneur-actor is also gearing up to take on the stage at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which will be taking place on 12 February 2023.
