Is it February 12 yet? Rihanna’s hotly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show is just around the corner, and the Fenty Beauty founder is teasing what’s to come with a new sneak video — and a full-blown hair sculpture.
RiRi shared a teaser video to Instagram, paired with the “Shh!” emoji to really drive home the point that something big is on the horizon. In the video, she stalks a runway in an acid-green furry coat as news soundbites about her career and her long absence from music play in the background. The coat is cool for sure, especially when paired with a black jumpsuit, oversized hoop earrings, and a plethora of layered necklaces, but it’s her intricate updo that is the real center of attention here.
Rihanna’s hair is sculpted into twists and turns; certain sections are braided and twisted up, likely with wire to hold them aloft, while a piece near her face is tied in a bubble braid. A small section of her hair is pulled up into a topknot and spiked out to match the textural look of the hair sculpture. “RiRi, where have you been?” we hear a fan yell in the background. Clearly, she’s been hard at work crafting what we know will be a jaw-dropping Halftime Show, not to mention this beauty look. It reminds us a bit of Gabrielle Union’s recent hair sculpture but with Rihanna’s signature high-fashion, badass edge.
