  • The starlet splashed £15,000 on rushing her favourite stylist to the UK, after a hair disaster occured in the sauna

    We all have a bad hair day every now and then, but if you’re Rihanna, that clearly doesn’t do.

    According to reports, the super-songstress splashed a whopping £15,000 on flying in an emergency stylist earlier this week, after suffering a hair nightmare in the sauna.


    RiRi, who’s been in the UK since the Brit Awards last week, was due to be recording an appearance on Jonathan Ross’s Saturday chat show when the hair horror occurred.

    According to sources, the starlet paid a visit to her hotel’s pool and sauna, which ended in disaster – for her barnet.

    ‘When she got out, her hair was tangled and matted. She slapped a load of conditioner on but it didn’t get through the mass,’ one insider told the Sun.

    Oh dear, oh dear.

    At a time like this, apparently only Rhi’s LA stylist, Ursula Stephen, would do.

    Instead of calling on a British stylist, the singer reportedly blew a whopping £15,000 by putting her favourite hairdresser straight on a plane to the UK.

    ‘She didn’t want to take the chance on an unknown,’ the source added of Rihanna’s precious locks.

    ‘Because they were on such a tight schedule, they had to get her on the first flight. Rihanna didn’t care about paying a fortune.’

    The singer was spotted sporting a baseball cap on her way to rehearse at the ITV studios yesterday, which, according to insiders, stayed firmly in place until her stylist arrived.

    ‘Rihanna shoved a hat on to go to the studios. She was fine when she knew Ursula was on her way.’

    Disaster averted. Phew.
