Rihanna Long Wavy Hairstyle - Dark Brunette
Rihanna looks lovely here in long wavy locks that show off her best assets. This ‘do frames her oval face shape nicely and makes the most of her naturally thick hair texture. Rihanna has a high rounded hairline which makes her best suited to a grown-out fringe, as seen here. The center part and voluminous curls help to balance out her broad forehead and pointed jaw line. Layers throughout give this hairstyle movement, and also helps to reduce any extra heavy or bulky weight in Rihanna's thick hair.
Rihanna has a warm, medium complexion with gold undertones and light eyes. This makes her best suited to hair colors on the warm spectrum like the chocolate brown shade she is sporting here as her base, as well as the golden tones she has highlighted her locks with throughout the lengths and ends. Not only does this create a stylish look for her, but it also gives her hair a shiny, healthy looking finish that is full of dimension. Not to mention it matches her orange outfit nicely!
Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian singer, songwriter, and actress. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003.

1 . Part the Middle
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.
3 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
4 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
5 . Use Large Hot Rollers
A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.
6 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side
Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
7 . Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back
Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
8 . Scrunch Hair Using Moulding Cream and Fingers
Apply your moulding cream to the ends of your hair and then lightly pinch and scrunch the hair before allowing your moulding cream to set.
