As a once-in-a-generation creative, of course Rihanna’s eye for aesthetics extends to her own beauty looks. Through her near 20-year career, Rihanna's best hairstyles touch on every possible hair color, length, and style out there — which means plenty of inspiration for every taste, too.

It’s crucial to note that Rihanna’s been a beauty chameleon from the very start of her career. In 2007, she kicked off a full-on asymmetric craze when she chopped her long waves, leaving behind edgy, angular bangs she would often dress up with colorful streaks and highlights.Patrick McMullan/Patrick McMullan/Getty Images
