Rihanna's LOUD red hair has tongues wagging everywhere. That neon red lacefront wig perched on top of her head has RiRi's fans all atwitter. People either love it or hate it. We hate it! But we also realize Rihanna has an album to promote. And what better way to promote an album titled LOUD?

Hollywoodlife.com reached out to Rihanna's stylist Ursula Stephens to explain why she's ruining RiRi's iconic status with that awful red wig.

HL: How was the decision to go red made? Was it yours or Rihanna’s?
Ursula Stephen: It was actually a mutual decision we made together. We had just wanted to do it at different times, but, as it happened in the end, the timing was perfect and we decided to go for it!

HL: Are these extensions? If so, are they real or synthetic?
Ursula Stephen: We’re using real human hair extensions, which are colored. The process to install them is simple: they’re bonded onto her actual hair.

HL: How does she like them. Does she love the new look?
Ursula Stephen: She loves the whole new look, especially the color! It’s her new favorite thing.

HL: Will she have to have relaxers in the meantime? What products will you use to maintain her look?
Ursula Stephen: Rihanna will definitely get relaxers in the meantime. I use Motions Silkening Shine Relaxer System to keep it sleek, shiny, and conditioned.

HL: What would you suggest to women who would like to copy her look? Any advice they can take to their stylist?
Ursula Stephen: My advice when copying someone’s look is always to make it your own! Work with your stylist to create a look that suits you and your personality. If you think this is a look that will suit you and your personality, then work with your stylist to create it!

Great info! But I wish HL had asked Ursula if Rihanna realizes she looks like a clown?

    Love me some RhiRhi but I HATE that hair!

  • Daisy

    I love it! She looks pretty as usual in these pics

    I like the shorter red hair better but as long as the longer red hair is healthy looking I can deal with it as well :yes:

    She is a bad bish and can pull it off!

    Team RiRi :cheer:


  • lakercrazy

    riri should slap the chit out this bish for lying to her after all the money she get for doing her dam hair and u do her like that and tell her she look good u LIAR u are such a LIAR!!!! :no:

  • Nika405

    It's just a bit too much. If she had black hair with red highlights yeah, but all over......too much!

  • trapmuzik

    she dont look good with long hair period.


    :nono:that ain't it RiRi


    I am really tired of the Raggedy Ann look !!!

  • robin

    It looks a hot mess to wear everyday. For some reason it looks really nice on her album cover. Thats pretty much the only time I can say that I like the red hair on her.

  • allwrightyden

    @ Daisy I agree! I like the shorter version better!

    I just don't think it's really the color, I just don't think she looks good with long hair. Like Halle Berry looks better with short hair!

    #imjustsayin :blink:

  • BeautifulBliss

    I'm just not feeling it. She is too pretty for that.

  • pdxBLK78

    Good Morning people. Not feeling this wig. It looks like her hairline is receding.


    Real my azz!


    Much too bright!!! G-morning all..

  • Kimmy

    I hate the hair color and the wig!! Rhi needs to cuss her hair stylist for having her walking around looking like a Ronald McDonald reject!

  • Danielle84

    hm. i'm more interested that she uses Motions for a relaxer & her shxt still looks dry all the time. 'po thang.

  • pinksghetti

    It's looks ok on her but I'm hoping I won't see a lot of girls/women around my town sporting this look. Red hair will look even worse on some folks then it does Riri.

  • Applered27

    I hate the look. It looks like a red colored poodle on top of her head. The color isn't the main issue, the style itself is what I don't care for. It’s too full; it looks dry and somewhat matted in spots. But hey if it floats her boat then sail on. I think when Rihanna has shorter hair styles it makes her outfits pop more and they look fiercer.

    I've been totally ignoring Rihanna since she started wearing the glaring red hair. I haven't read or responded to a Rihanna post in a minute. The hair drives me away. I can't explain why; it just does.

    I'm a little concerned that she is getting extensions BONDED and using Motions!!!

    Really. Thats a problem
