With the much-anticipated launch of Fenty Skin this year, we momentarily forgot that Rihanna is the queen of cool when it comes to hair. And she didn't hold back with her latest edgy look: an extreme mullet.

Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish and Maisie Williams all went for shaggy chops this year, proving it was the defining haircut of 2020. Miley did it to align her look with her new rock-inspired music (great idea), Billie's was a rather scary (but happy) accident, and Maisie's was... well, just Maisie, really.

Rihanna jumped on the mullet bandwagon back in September for her lingerie show, unveiling new shaved sides and long, down-the-back layers. And it turns out Rihanna wasn't the only one to say, "make mine a mullet," with actress and model Cara Delevingne wearing a bleach-blonde, razor-chopped wig for the show (I mean, it is a wig, right?)

But just when we thought Riri's mullet efforts couldn't get anymore extreme, her makeup artist Hector Espinal posts a video of her announcing the launch of Fenty Skin into Sephora, and she had the most incredible shag-meets-mullet we've ever seen...

As Rihanna announced her exciting news, we were waaay too busy staring at her razor-chopped pixie cut, graduating into shaggy layers that reached below her shoulders.

Despite the post being about skincare, her fans were quick to point out her stunning locks. One commented: "Her hair 馃槏" and another: "This hair is all the way cute 馃槏"

If the mullet lives on in 2021, we'll be happy...
