Rihanna Straightens Her New ‘Do, Proves She’s An Excellent Multitasker

In case you didn’t keep up with Rihanna’s 60-picture birthday extravaganza on Instagram, I suggest you do so right now. I mean, why would you deprive yourself? In between wearing entirely one color on the slopes and off, and sometimes even matching her lipstick to her outfit, Rih needed to make sure her hair looked good. Her new chin-length bob needs to be Mia Wallace-sleek at all times, and the best way to achieve that after frolicking in snow and hot tubs? Straightening her hair in the middle of her birthday celebration. Duh.

@badgalriri kept her Instagram followers up to date on the process, beginning with a photo of her in a chair, surrounded by balloons, straightener in hand. Rihanna, obviously, does not do her hair like most women.

First, she moves to the arm of the chair. Doing your hair can get pretty boring, so balancing in thigh-high socks and hot pants while holding a 300-degree tool adds a level of excitement that’s hard to come by any other way.

Rihanna then moves back into the seat of the chair, but—um, hi—she’s thirsty and busy doing her hair (AND smoking), so she gets someone to hold a drink for her. I would also like to point out that there is no mirror in sight, which means she’s capable of making her ’do stick-straight without looking at it. She really can do everything. What I never knew was that she could do it ALL at once. #BOW

Finally, she’s exhausted. It’s her birthday and she wants to relax, so she lets someone else finish her hair for her. She is Rihanna, after all. She has “two main hair stylists” with her at all times. Just because she can do her hair while doing 58 other things, doesn’t mean she has to.
