Rihanna Pays Her Hair Stylist $22,000 A Week

No hair color is worth $22,706 a week – especially when it’s Rhianna’s red hair, which long overstayed its welcome. The Daily Mail reports that RiRi employed hair stylist Ursula Stephen, who charges $3,243 a day, to help maintain her rouge locks.

One Rihanna roadie said, “Ursula is a close confidante and they [she and Rihanna] are together all the time. Most of these costs are paid for by her management.” While the singer’s carrot top looked like it took some high maintenance, we find it hard to believe Rihanna’s management was willing to shell out that much cash — especially when the results were a less than a million-dollar look.

While we’re on the subject of Rihanna’s hair, can we just say Hallelujah! We were starting to think the singer’s Jessica Rabbit-colored ‘do was a permanent thing, but the above photo was snapped on Monday and shows the star has gone back to her natural shade (or something like it.)

Maybe keeping the red really was as pricey as The Daily Mail claims and Rihanna’s return to brown was a management move to cut costs. Whatever the reason, to whoever convinced RiRi to get rid of the red: thank you.

The outrageous singer changed her hairstyle a whopping 13 times while sporting her red mane. Fingers crossed the new ‘do is here to stay!
