Rihanna has never been shy about changing up her look. The singer (and actress from time to time) has traded in her raven locks for a number of shades throughout the years—arguably most memorably fiery red, but also variations of blonde, brunette, bronde and more. 

Most recently, the songstress was spotted with a deep, navy-blue color that is just a few steps shy of black. It's a cool interpretation of a fashion color so deep in its shade that is almost passable as a natural color. 

Pravana artist Cynthia Valentin formulated a way to emulate Rihanna's newest haircolor using Pravana Vivids Black additive below.

Get the color: Rihanna's Navy-Blue Hue

Formula 1: One part Vivids Blue + 2 parts Vivids Black additive
