Lately, it seems everywhere you turn, another entertainer has chopped off all her hair, leaving the world in a panic because that is apparently what our generation apparently does now. It was only a matter of time that Rihanna got in on the November haircut wagon.

Last night, the singer was spotted wearing a catsuit* and thigh-high boots in New York City (in November, by the way, during which this city is hella cold). She also had a new haircut: a pretty, sexy bob with bangs that looks fantastic on her. I’m a big fan of the photos she Instagrammed of the style today, including the one above as well as this:

Rihanna’s hair is reminiscent of Selena Gomez‘s in a recent shoot with Flaunt Magazine, though that was apparently just a wig. Nevertheless, the messy, sexy bob cut is something that just about anybody can try (and give anyone the finger if they claim you can’t because your face is too round, too thin or too plagued by imaginary appearance issues). It’s great for anybody who loves highly-stylized looks with sexy, chunky pieces, as well as those who prefer an easier haircut that can be left alone and still have great movement. It dries fairly quickly, can be worked with a variety of products and tools, and isn’t awfully annoying to grow out. I highly recommend it. Plus, if you hate it, you can always change it up and make it sleeker:

*Is anybody else disappointed that “catsuits” aren’t remotely what they sound like? Sigh.
