Rihanna’s Expensive Hair Emergency

Rihanna is a real pop diva, especially when it comes to her hair.

RiRi had a style emergency after going for a swim and using a steam room and sauna in a London hotel before she was scheduled to appear on The Jonathan Ross Show. She was determined to have her own hairdresser fix up her new, blonde locks which had turned into a matted mess after a failed attempt to fix it herself by slapping on masses of conditioner.

She didn’t want to take a chance on a local stylist so RiRi decided to call on the services of her Los Angeles stylist, Ursula Stephen, who she flew first class from L.A. to London. How much did this exercise set RiRi back? Apparently, the figure is around $23 000 (about R174 000). That’s a really expensive bad hair day!
