this is what you came for 

Pimp your ponytail à la RiRi



Yeah, we love the music…but that ponytail! Leave it to music star Rihanna to shift the go-to coif into glam mode. In her new video for “This Is What You Came For,” the singer flaunts a high-profile pony adorned with a constellation of sparkly hair accessories. Word on the fashion circuit is the hair jewelry RiRi flaunts in the video is by new London-based fashion designer Ashley Williams. But, the bling Rihanna wore for the video don’t appear to be available (we’re going to guess they were custom made). The good news: It’s a look that you can easily replicate with a handful of your fave sparkly hair clips or actual jewelry (secure them with hair pins). Simply create a sleek ponytail positioned at center crown. Keep the base slick with gel or edge control then position a collection of sparklers, varying the shapes and sizes, near the base of the ponytail. Now you’re ready to shine bright like a diamond!
