Last week, celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen celebrated her birthday with an intimate gathering at Boudoir nightclub in New York City. Joining the highly requested Brooklyn bred mane maven at her bash: Rihanna and Taraji P. Henson.
Affectionately called Ursie by friends, the Global Ambassador for Motions is often credited with transforming Rihanna from an island girl next door to one of pop culture’s premiere glowstick carriers.
Without the approval of Def Jam, the singer enlisted Ursula for the edgy mane makeover.
Last year she talked with Juicy magazine about her all-time favorite Rihanna 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,” she said.
“Last but not least, I love the red classic updo we did for the EMA’s in 2010.”
