With all the hoopla surrounding Rihanna’s fiery new haircolor, you’d think it was the first time a celebrity had ever gone red! Not so. Some of celebdom’s most bold-faced names have sported scarlet strands. From Mary J. Blige to Chilli, we take a look back at our favorite red-headed starlets.
A decade ago, Mary J. Blige took a break from the blonde with this plummy-red pixie cut.
At a signing for her “Velvet Rope” album, Janet Jackson shocked fans with her new ’do: Red-hot ringlets gathered into ponytails!
At the 2003 Grammy Awards, Chilli traded in her usual chocolate-brown curls for sweet auburn streaks. Super cute, but we love her signature look!
Faith Evans has rocked every haircolor under the sun, from bleached-out platinum to jet black. Here, she sports a spicy, cinnamon-y shade that’s so pretty with her porcelain complexion.
When Kelly Rowland first stepped on the scene as one of Destiny’s four Children, she sported a short crop run through with Crayola-bright crimson streaks!
From elfin-short and blonde to super-long and brown, Keyshia Cole has run the hairdo gamut. Here, she sports a head full of ginger-hued ringlets.
Tyra Banks hit an “America’s Next Top Model” party sporting masses of romantic red spirals. So gothy-dramatic with her vampy scarlet lipstick!
Kelis is one of our most inventive style chameleons. Only she could sport a multi-colored mane—blonde, red, and brown—and get away with it!
