When Rihanna took the stage at the American Music Awards, some folks didn’t understand what was going on with her head.

Is Rihanna wearing a hat? #AMAs

I can’t tell if that’s Rihanna’s hair or a leather winter hat

LOVE Rihanna’s duct tape hat!!!!!!!!!

Glamour Magazine thought it was a “faux pixie crop.”

But some of us knew exactly what it was.

Rihanna looks amazing and is slaying the whole audience acceptig her award wit her doobie wrap, it gives me such joy.#blackgirlsalwayswin

Rihanna doobie was smooth and shiny as shit.. I need to know what hair oil she use

Who’s the only female that can pull off a fresh doobie (wrap) with the bobby pins in tact? #Rihanna #AMA2013

It wasn’t a hat. It was her hair, secured in what is known as a doobie wrap, a roller wrap, or just a wrap, depending on where you’re from.

The process involves combing or brushing your hair around your head in either direction and securing with large bobby pins. The hair is usually wrapped at night and held in place with a silk scarf so it doesn’t come down during sleep.

When you comb it out, the end result is smooth, shiny, perfectly placed hair.

That’s why Rihanna’s wrap was so completely perfect.

Us commoners may run to the gym, the store, or maybe to class with our hair wrapped. Rihanna rocked hers during a nationally televised formal event where people were gathered to honor her.

And she slayed. Hair wrapped and all.

And she slayed. Hair wrapped and all.

Pretty sure a doobie wrap has never ever ever been this classy.

Basically Rihanna doesn’t give a damn. Let’s ask her to be sure.

Rihanna, do you give a damn?
