Forget the expression ‘letting your hair down’, Rihanna literally took her hair off after her Brit Awards performance on Tuesday night.

The 24-year-old pop princess performed at the awards ceremony and during her time on stage had a paint fight, which ended up all over her cream jumper and in her new blonde tresses.

After posing splattered in paint, Ri-Ri then went to get changed and put on a different head of hair in the process. Her choreographer tweeted these before and after pictures:

If only we could all afford to do this when we have a bad hair day.
