Rihanna is channelling major mermaid vibes with her new turquoise hair

She's looked to the deep blue sea for hair inspiration! ?  

Mega star Rihanna has come a long way since her Music of the Sun days, having experimented with more hairstyles and colours than we can count. She’s had Rapunzel-length red hair, edgy green spikes and most recently rocked a dark, curly bob, proving she’s a true hair chameleon.

And just when we thought she couldn’t possibly shock us any further, she’s just gone and broke the internet by debuting turquoise blue hair. Yes, you heard us right, she’s decided to channel her inner mermaid and got a beautiful blue shade that’s totally magical! Want to see? Just look below.

After a few weeks of promoting the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets movie, the 28-year-old decided to go back to her hometown to attend one of her favourite festivals of the year: Crop Over Festival. This annual festival celebrates Caribbean culture, just like Notting Hill Carnival, but on a much grander and cooler scale.

So in true festival spirit, Rihanna dolled up for the event (with the most elaborate outfit ever!) and shared the amazing results to Instagram. As you can tell, her darker locks are no more and in their place is a show-stopping turquoise colour that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before!

TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo

Editor’s tip: If you want a colour as cool as RiRi’s, remember to use a wash and care set that has been specially made for colourful tresses. We recommend trying the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner to help maintain your hue’s vibrancy.

With a sultry side-swept fringe and loose beachy waves, Rihanna’s definitely channelling major mermaid vibes to a TAnd seeing as we predicated that ocean-inspired hair colours would be hot-to-trot for 2017, the stars’s aqua-coloured mane is totally proving us right. Nice job, Rihanna!
