Rihanna Goes Bleach Blonde for Upcoming Elle Cover

Rihanna Goes Bleach Blonde for Upcoming Elle Cover

You knew that soft brown color wasn’t going to last for long!

Published February 3, 2012

A few weeks ago it was all about Rihanna's new tattoos and now she's showing off yet another new hairstyle: a long-layered, blonde shag, in place of the softly curled natural-looking brown hair she's been wearing lately.

“#Back2Work 1st Cover of the year!!!! #ELLE” she Tweeted February 2, along with a photo of herself tapping into bombshell mode in an off-shoulder sweater, daisy dukes and upper-thigh leather boots she described as "kinda stripperish." She later wore the sexy ensemble to watch the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Clippers from courtside seats at L.A.'s Staples Center.

Rihanna’s Twitter followers buzzed with questions about the new hairstyle and wondered why she picked the particular color and was it a wig or did she dye her own hair? She told them she colored her hair for the Elle cover shoot specifically and even divulged it was a product of "bleach + weave" when a male follower boldly asked if it was all her hair.
