Rihanna Hairstyles: Miss RiRi graze the cover of I-D Magazine cover for the February 2015 edition sporting a ferocious chunky braids or plaits. This African braiding style is similar to that of the popular box braids (aka Poetic Justice braids) but with a plaited twist. Rihanna’s new hairstyle is definitely unique and I can see myself rocking this Bantu knots Felicia braids sometimes soon. Rihanna with braids is not one of the provocative Hip-hop star’s typical hair styles. However, Rihanna hairstyles every now and then will include braids but often unique enough to make her fans wants to try something new. I can see RiRi’s new braided style catch on if promoted!
Rihanna Hairstyles: Bantu Knots ‘Felicia Braids’
Rihanna took her Felicia braids a little further by adding Bantu knots to it. RiRi has sported Bantu knots hairstyles before but this is the first time I have seen the single rocking Bantu knots with braids. She wore them at the iHeart Radio Music Awards last summer but with natural hair (see pic below). Can you see the similarity to Janet Jackon’s Poetic Justice braids? Rihanna hairstyles are often made rounds on social media, hairstyles and fashion blogs around the web, but this one has not caught-a-fire yet or will it ever! Mmmmm. Hollywood is not too kin to display sistas in with braided hairstyles you know!!! Just saying.
What do you think of Rihanna’s new braided style? Can you see it catching on?
