Pixie cut, we hardly knew her.

Rihanna's pixie cut was just a stop between her 2020 mullet and today's big reveal.

In a new Instagram post promoting the latest launch from Fenty Skin, RiRi showed off a brand-new hairstyle as well as miles and miles of long buttery legs. Of course, she was announcing Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream, but fans zeroed in on her new hair, too, which was braided in neat flat twists and finished with tiny Bantu knots.

"Touch dat BUTTA baby," she wrote in the caption.

The three photos included various angles of her new hairstyle as well as a white, halter-top knit dress. She also stacked on plenty of bracelets and wore coordinating mesh heeled sandals with straps crisscrossing up her very moisturized legs.

In non-beauty news, fans got a hint at would could be coming from Rihanna musically when they realized that she and Nicki Minaj were following one another on Instagram.

The two famously stopped following each other a few years ago, but it appears that whatever caused the rift (Minaj's beef with fellow rapper Rema Ma could be to blame) is in the past, because Minaj's announcement that news would be coming on Friday came with the possibility of a new collab with Ri. They've worked together before (see: "Fly"), but even the tiniest hint at new material from Rihanna is a reason for her loyal Navy to celebrate.
