Rihanna’s hairstylist Responds to her Doobie Wrap

This is some good ole Hot Peppermint Tea concerning Rihanna’s infamous DOOBIE WRAP! via @lovebscott
Rihanna’s hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, spoke with ELLE about Rihanna’s now infamous doobie from her appearance at the 2013 American Music Awards.
Since the style has created such a controversy, Urusla took the opportunity to clear up a few of the unanswered questions and offer a little more insight as to whose decision it was to actually wear the wrap.


Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.

Whose idea was it for Rihanna to wear a doobie wrap?
It was actually Rihanna’s idea. She had her mind made up! Honestly, I was a little hesitant but I knew she could pull it off, so I was all for it.
Did you anticipate the overwhelming reaction?
I knew it would get a reaction but I wasn’t sure if it would be positive or negative. A doobie on the red carpet has never been done before so I knew it could have gone either way.
Do you foresee the wrap, worn outside the home/salon, becoming a universal trend?
Sure. I mean, it’s already been done. I see girls on the street rocking them all the time shopping, eating, etc. It’s just never been seen in a formal setting.
Some interpreted the style to mean Rihanna is nonchalant about her AMAs honor while others felt it was a unique and clever nod to her culture at a time when the world was watching. What statement were you and Rihanna trying to make?
It was a nod to fashion! This is a style that can be worn by some of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood. The wrap actually has roots in the ’30s finger waves hairstyle, and with the embellished pins, it channeled Old Hollywood.
Were the pins a request Rihanna made or your own design decision? What did they bring to the look?
Yes, the ’30s were all about [the wrap]! The pins helped to elevate the look from just your average doobie.
There’s been quite a bit of backlash from some members of the African-American and Latina community, who feel the wrap should be relegated to the bedroom. How do you respond to that criticism?
Everyone has an opinion. However, the doobie has been worn to Bergdorf Goodman. They just haven’t been paying attention. And it’s been around since the ’30s. Part of my job is to know eras, trends and fashion, and to keep looks alive by adding a modern twist.
You were also behind Rihanna’s iconic cut during the ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ era. Together, you two consistently step outside the box and experiment with hair. Is it your goal to push the envelope further and further with Rihanna’s looks? What groundbreaking style do you want her to try next? 
Of course! As an artist, you can’t take yourself too seriously. It’s about evolving, having fun, feeling beautiful and letting the look interpret the feeling, mood and the music! I feel like we have done everything. However, there is a mental list of “looks,” not styles, that we want to try. More iconic shit is on the list.

Kim Kimble is responsible for Lady O’s Hair Piece!

Oprah is wigging out!
oprah afro wigThe Queen of All Media wants to talk hair and she’s getting our attention by sporting a massive Afro wig on the September 2013 cover of O, The Oprah Magazine. Weighing in at approximately 3.5 pounds (roughly the same as a small Chihuahua), Oprah named the wig “Wind Thang” and took to social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) to share her excitement about the stunning cover image.
But leave it to her BFF to crack jokes. Gayle King was on set for the shoot and asked: “Can someone put on the soundtrack to The Lion King?”. And Adam Glassman, O magazine’s creative director, hit the nail on the head when he exclaimed: “Your hair looks like Chaka Khan and Diana Ross combined.” Our thoughts exactly.
In a Q&A for the issue, Oprah’s longtime hairstylist Andre Walker explained how he obtained the enormous hairpiece, which was delivered to the photo shoot in Bubble Wrap and a custom-made, bright pink travel box complete with a built-in stand.
“It wasn’t easy! I finally decided I’d have to make one myself. Two days later I was on the set of “The Voice” talking to the stylist there, Kim Kimble [she’s also Beyonce’s mane woman]. When I told her about my predicament, she said she had created a wig I could borrow. Saved me a good bit of time!”
Oprah, who looks amazing in a curve-hugging orange dress on the cover, debuted her natural hair on O’s September issue last year. But even though she’s working with a marvelous mane of curls, the TV titan isn’t exempt from wanting what she doesn’t have.
“I wish I could say it was all mine.” Oprah told Us Weekly. And the 59-year-old star goes on to say: “My own hair is shorter, not quite so spherical, and a lot lighter. But that doesn’t mean it never gives me grief. When it comes to hair, I’m in the same boat as most every other woman. The way we feel about our hair is universal — we love it when it looks great, we can’t stand it when it looks not so great, and we all want it to tell the world something about us.”
The issue hits newsstands tomorrow Aug 6. What do you think of Oprah’s sassy look?

FLOTUS is BANGING!!! literally

Welp I guess a new year and another four years in the White House automatically meant New Hair!  First Lady Michelle Obama is breaking out some new things this week. It was her 49th birthday yesterday, and she celebrated with a new bangin’ ‘do and a new official FLOTUS Twitter account.

Decide if we love the new hair inside….

To kick off her new Twitter account, @FLOTUS WHICH will likely replace @MichelleObama, Mrs. O snapped a pic inside the White House with her new hair ‘do.

While chatting with the Inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall ahead of #MLKDay of Service, our First Lady rocked a shoulder length sweeping bob with long choppy bangs.

She told her followers: Thanks for the warm welcome & birthday wishes! Join me & Barack for #MLKDay of Service this Saturday.

But it’s that hair that has everyone’s eye. So….

DO WE LOVE IT?!
