From hitting the beach in Barbados to kicking back in the Mediterranean, Rihanna has been logging some serious R&R in the midst of her ongoing Loud tour schedule.

On Monday afternoon, the 23-year-old arrived in the South of France, clad in a black bandeau top and a printed maxi skirt. Her unruly curls, which she recently dyed a spicy brown (from a fiery red) were undone and completed her relaxed, resort-ready look.

No stranger to taking risks with her hair, Rihanna has rocked everything from shaved-sides to a bright crimson pixie. But last month, Motions Celebrity Stylist Ursula Stephen told Us Weekly that the Grammy-winning artist was slowly transitioning to a darker 'do.

"Rihanna has been wanting to change up the color and go for something a little more natural-looking," Stephen told Us. "She wasn't exactly sure what she wanted so we started playing around and decided to start toning down the red and brining it back to a warmer, more natural shade."
