And now she’s a blond! Rihanna’s hairstylist Ursula Stephen described the coloring process as “hard work and dedication.”
“Rihanna was determined to be a blonde! I’ve been coloring her hair black for at least 2-3 years, so I had to strip the black,” Stephen said. “After two separate processes we finally got the color we wanted.”

To maintain Rihanna’s blonde, Stephen said she starts with a color-preserving conditioner to maximize color retention.
“Afterwards, I follow with the Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion-Regular Hold ($5, drugstores nationwide) as it gives the hair a soft flexible hold,” she said.
