Rihanna's AMA "Doobie" Hair Explained By Her Hairstylist!!

Rihanna's hairstylist dishes details behind her unusual AMAs hairstyle!Rihanna is not only a music icon, she's an all-around icon — and now she has a pyramid-shaped trophy to prove it!!

So when she accepted her Icon Award at this year’s AMAs sporting an unusual hairstyle, it had the whole beauty world abuzz!

Rih rocked what is called a “doobie” or “wrap” on her dome, which is basically created by wrapping hair around the cranium and then pinning it in place. The style is mainly used in African American and Latina cultures to preserve straightened hair, so until recently was contained to the home or hair salon.

Some critiqued RiRi for the 'do, saying it should be kept in the bedroom, while others adored it and want to see it tried on different celebs!

But while Rihanna probs doesn’t care what anyone thinks, her hairstylist Ursula Stephen took the time to delve into her hair-iffic inspiration.

With all the style happenings she went through across the pond, it felt like Rihanna had been in London forever!

But darling RiRi is home again in Hollywood, and she came sporting her classic airport style — comfy yet chic.

Those may be sweats she's wearing, but her scarf is beautiful paired with her leather jacket and bag.

Hair 9-1-1! Rihanna Shells Out $23,000+ To Fly Stylist To London

Filed under: RihannaHairstyles

That must have been some ratted up hair!!

After playing around in the pool and sauna at her London hotel, Rihanna was left with a huge mess on top of her head!!

Since she was planning an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, she needed an emergency fix and FAST!

Instead of calling a local stylist, RiRi got El Lay stylist Ursula Stephen on the first flight out to the UK.

And she dropped an astonishing 15,000 British pounds or $23,900 to do it. Dayum!

An insider explains:

When she got out, her hair was tangled and matted. She slapped a load of conditioner on but it didn't get through the mass.

She didn't want to take the chance on an unknown. Because they were on such a tight schedule, they had to get her on the first flight.

Rihanna didn't care about paying a fortune. Rihanna shoved a hat on to go to the studios. She was fine when she knew Ursula was on her way.

Well ya gotta do what ya gotta do!! RiRi isn't just an artist, she's a pop star. It's all part of the job!!

How much would U spend on a bad hair day??

Ursula Stephen Talks RiRi's Hair

Filed under: RihannaHairstyles

ursula-stephen-rihanna-hairstylist-on-hair.jpg

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."

Which hairstyle of Rihanna's do U like best???
