#BeautySpot: Rihanna’s Swept-Back ‘Do

The first black female ambassador for top label Dior, Rihanna has been seen stunning in different pieces from the brand at this season’s ongoing Paris for Fashion Week, and turning the world’s head as she does


The Barbadian singer and style icon was spotted on her way to Le Avenue restaurant on this weekend, rocking a flirty and girlie look as she donned a frilled and belted number that skimmed off at her thighs, topped with vintage-style pink glasses, pointed heels and a matching handbag.


But, for the beauty lovers on Team SPICE, it was the 27-year-old’s hair that sealed her fate as our Beauty Spot this week, with her curly locks slicked back, and leaving her Barbie pink lipstick and flawless complexion on show.


Get the Look

Fortunately this beauty move works on all hair types and is super easy to recreate. Here’s a quick few tips on how to do it…

1. First, spritz wet hair with a texturising spray then blow dry it, which will help define some natural waves to your lengths and also make hair more manageable. SPICE loves Balmain’s Texturizing Salt Spray (£16.95, here).


2. After your hair has been blown out, back-brush your hair along the front hairline and at the crown to create volume, then smooth the top back with a fine-tooth comb, molding and shaping to create the amount of height you would like.

3. Next, add a texture paste, like L’Oreal Paris’ Advanced Hairstyle Txt It 02 Hyper Fix Putty ($4.99, here), to help keep the hair in shape.


4. Finish with a strong-hold hairspray, like Moroccanoil’s Luminous Hairspray (£17.25 , here), to set.


And there you have it – a Rih-inspired hair ‘do that should turn heads! Show us your attempts online by tagging us in your selfies @SPICETVAFRICA.
