From root to tip, these ladies are going bold in a big way

Not everyone is risky enough to rock the new bold color hair trends, but we had to shout out our favorite celebs who got it right!


What can't she pull off? Seriously, there's nothing Riri doesn't look good in. Here's the thing we've learned about Rihanna: she essentially knows how to take every trend and flip it to make it work for her. Case in point: this pink wig. The mixture of the blonde and pink tones compliment her complexion. The cut helps shape and show off her face. Her brows are aren't too dark and her makeup is very barely there. Doll-like, even. This look on Rihanna helps us remember that, in reality, anyone can wear any color. It all came together. This goes to show that it's all about finding the right hue and undertone of each particular color. And Rihanna found her pink.


The reality TV star/singer/songwriter is now known for her fiery red strands and we're here for it. The color is super bold, but actually works on her. The tricky thing about bright red hair is that if it isn't done right, it could end up looking like you poured Kool-aid on your scalp. But, K. Michelle hits the nail on the head with her locks, and we love it. What we can appreciate, too, is that she can go from rocking a chic bob to donning long, body waves and still look amazing.


Soft, subtle but still statement making, Taylor's purple ends look perfectly dipped in the summer's hottest hair color. This is a fun way for women who aren't ready to go too daring to step outside of their comfort zone. We love the contrast in color, as her hair fluidly goes from dark brown, to a rusty brown to a rich lavender. Perfect, Teyana.


We all went into a frenzy when Queen Bey dropped her surprise album this year. We couldn't get enough of the makeup, costume changes and fierce looks in each video. But the kicker had to have been Beyonce's green hair in her "Superpower" visual. A drastic change from her usual blonde locks, it was fun to see her play with color and be daring. If only she had kept this up a little longer. Le sigh.


There was much talk about Raven's new rainbow-inspired hair color that she posted on her Instagram account last month. On top of that, she had the right side of her head shaved. Yep, this was a risk, but she actually looks cute. It's fitting for her quirky personality. We just can't imagine how much work it takes to keep it up the vibrancy.
