Rihanna's hairstyle changes as often as her clothes, thanks to her hairstylist of 6 years Ursula Stephen.
Of course, having RiRi's locks doesn't come cheap. Ursula pockets $2,000/week to do her hair, but for those of us who don't have that kind of money to burn she's sharing her secrets!
On what inspires her:
"I take inspiration from so many areas in my life, many of my travels and even old movies."
On creating hairstyles for Rihanna:
"There are so many different things that go into creating a hair look for Rihanna, from the type of event she is attending to the outfit she’ll be wearing. We try to identify what the message we want want to send and then we go from there."
On her favorite RiRi hairstyles:
"I loved the choppy bob for the MTV Video Music Awards in 2007, the really dark short black hair at the Teen Choice Awards in 2008, the Rated R album packaging with the edgy shaved sides and blonde swoop in the front. Last but not least, I love the red classic updo we did for the EMA’s in 2010."
On getting Rihanna's red locks:
"Her red is so pretty but it fades so fast! So it’s so important to invest in color preserving products. Color preserving shampoos, conditioners, and daily stylers, to help keep color locked in and looking vibrant!"
On protecting your hair from damage:
"I protect Rihanna’s hair by giving her a lot of conditioning treatments. I sometimes use Motions Deep Penetrating Mask. The most important thing is to never let the hair get dry to keep breakage to a minimum. You also have to know when to say enough is enough and give it a break from the heat."
