LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rihanna is taking her love of fashion, hair and makeup to the next level: She is opening a beauty agency in Los Angeles, her spokeswoman confirmed.

With managing partner Benoit Demouy, Rihanna has launched Fr8me, which helps stylists, hairdressers and makeup artists book editorial and celebrity jobs. The singer’s makeup artist and Taraji P. Henson’s hairstylists and wardrobe stylist are already on Fr8me’s roster.
