Rihanna’s Locs

Rihanna’s new flick Ocean’s 8 is all set to debut the week but before we all go crazy over their premiere red carpet attire let’s talk hair. Rihanna, the ever-changing hair chameleon, decided that she wanted to wear locs for her role as Nine Ball in Ocean’s 8. Her stylist Yusef Williams explained to Refinery29, how Rihanna requested her character wear loc and she wanted to keep her Barbados accent for the role.”We thought it would be strong. Her locs would maintain that tie to Africa. She’d keep her accent. She wasn’t just going to be some American girl in this movie. Nine Ball is still a Caribbean girl that just happens to be in America.” He added, “All in all, the locs are just really badass. I couldn’t imagine her character without them.”Learn more about Nine Ball’s glorious hair, ahead.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Tease

On a side note, Rihanna continues to tease new makeup possibly from Fenty Beauty. When she attended the Ocean’s 8 premiere this week she wore a cool metallic purple lipstick, but her makeup artist Pricilla Ono did not list the color in her makeup description. Hmmmmmm we wonder if the color will make its debut soon!
