Lizzo Is Bringing Back Old Skewl Rihanna

Lizzo is making the case for old school Rihanna with her new hairstyle. 

Yesterday, the “Truth Hurts” singer shared a video debuting her new dark red hair, which felt eerily reminiscent of Rihanna’s dark red hair days and one of 2019’s biggest beauty trends. The hair, which was styled in natural frizzy curls at her shoulders, was coloured by celebrity stylist and self-described “Beyoncé Of Baby Hair,” Shelby Swain. 

Giving us greater Rihanna vibes, Lizzo matched the RiRi-inspired hairstyle with a matching Savage x Lizzo branded Forever Savage Bralette and Forever Savage Hipster underwear set in Black Caviar/Party Foil. You can check out the full clip below.

Back in 2019, a bunch of Syrup faves had us considering a cheeky switch to the dark side. BLACKPINK’s Jisoo sported cute dark red hair during her trip to the United States for Coachella, Kehlani wore a bright red lob and earlier this year during lockdown, Kristen Stewart revealed orange-red highlights on short blonde hair.
