Just when we were really loving her asymmetrical bob, Rihanna went and switched up her style again! The Cover Girl showed off a new flapper-style blunt bob with heavy straight bangs at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards. Turns out that her stylist Ursula Stephen cut it that day. She tells PEOPLE “We definitely had to do something different and fresh for the Movie Awards of course. So I just figured bangs would be the perfect choice — and the perfect step instead of going too short. [Rihanna] wanted to go even shorter than that!” But this won’t be the last new ‘do we see from the singer. Stephens tells us “We don’t know if she’s going to keep this cut for the tour. We just have to keep surprising you guys!” We can’t wait. Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s new ‘do? Love it or miss the old cut?

I like the asymmetrical bob best, but I’m sure she did it so she wouldn’t look anything like Posh’s fried-out Duran-Duran monstrosity. The look was hands-down best on Rihanna, but I think Posh is better known for it. If I were a young, fresh, gorgeous Rihanna, I would not want to look like or be compared to Posh, who normally looks good, but the current state of HER asymmetrical bob is really aging her.

Just when the asymmetrical bob was growing on me, Rihanna had to change it! I don’t really care for the short bob. I don’t like bangs on her, the bangs are too heavy, and the hair itself looks like a wig. The asymmetrical cut was more sexy and edgy on Rihanna. If anyone has seen her video for her new single “Umbrella” she looks amazing in that video and her asymmetrical bob looked absolutely fabulous on her.

Personally, before she cut her asymmetrically, she had long wavy hair, which was absolutely beautiful on her, I loved it. When I bought her last CD, I just fell in love with her hair, because she looked so gorgeous with long hair. Regardless, Rihanna is beautiful and can pull off any look. I agree with Autumn, Rihanna would look beautiful with a pixie cut also.

I had this haircut when I was 4. She could look alot better without these bad haircuts.

I think her new cut looks great – it flatters her much better than that asymmetrical bob.

No hair cut looks good with that big forehead.
