The singer also posted a photo on her Instagram story as well as on her Instagram account to give us a closer look at the blue-green shade. Just over 18 hours and the photo captioned “crawpova. ’17” has already garnered over a million likes.
Barbados Crop Over Festival
The captions are assumed to make a reference to the Crop Over festival that is celebrated annually in the singer’s home of Barbados. According to the Barbados official website, the summer festival is the country’s most popular and colorful festival.
“Its origins can be traced back to the 1780s, a time when Barbados was the world’s largest producer of sugar. At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest – the Crop Over celebration.
As the sugar industry in Barbados declined, so too did the Crop Over festival and in the 1940’s the festival was terminated completely. However, the festival was revived in 1974 and other elements of Barbadian culture were infused to create the extravaganza that exists today . . . an event that attracts thousands of people from across the globe.”
So, if you came here looking for summer hair inspiration, we’re betting you’re already considering your own version of Rihanna’s blue mermaid hair.
