Ursula Stephen, Hairstylist To Stars, Talks Holiday Hairdos And Rihanna (VIDEO)

Ursula Stephen knows a thing or two about creating fabulous hair.

She is the talented celebrity hairstylist who gave Rihanna her famous punk-rock crop-cut (aka "The Rihanna Cut," named People Magazine's most coveted haircut of 2010), fiery red locks and every head-turning style since (which reportedly comes with a hefty price tag). The Brooklyn, N.Y., native has also transformed the tresses of Keyshia Cole, Monica and Michelle Williams.

Stephen's work has been called inspiring, innovative and cutting edge. I sat down with the sensational stylist to chat about creating the perfect holiday hairstyles, how to maintain healthy hair and of course, working with Rihanna. Check it out!
