Guess she won’t be whipping her hair back and forth anytime soon! Budding superstar Willow Smith, 10, debuted a new bowl cut at Z100‘s Jingle Ball on Friday, Dec. 10, but the funny thing is 22-year-old Rihanna has a very similar mushroom style! Hmm, is Ri-Ri copying Willow or is Baby Smith trying to be the next Rihanna?
Willow and Rihanna share a stylist, Mariel Haen, and when HollyBaby spoke to her back in September and she told us that Willow is very influenced by Rihanna’s look! “Willow is definitely inspired by Rihanna’s style,” Mariel said. “We make an effort to give Willow her own style, so as not to be a mini-version of Rihanna, but Willow really knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like, and she’s vocal about it.”
Not only do the girls share a stylist, but they both have contracts with Jay-Z‘s label Roc Nation, which Rihanna joined in October. And if that isn’t enough, it appears that everyone’s favorite tween songstress might be dropping her last name! If you search for her on iTunes, her hit song “Whip My Hair” comes up simply under the name Willow.
What do you think? Is Willow planning on being the next Ri-Ri?
