Rihanna's hair stylist, Ursula Stephen, just told The Cut exactly what it's like being Rihanna's hair stylist. As you might expect, the job sounds pretty amazing—not only does she get to hang out with Rihanna, but she also gets to getgifts from Rihanna, like a Céline bag for her birthday. In addition to learning that Stephen was responsible for the Good Girl Gone Bad bob, we also learned that she plans to open her own salon in Fort Greene.

Stephen's space will be located at 66 Lafayette Avenue, and is scheduled to open sometime in May. She tells The Cut: "I want the salon to be versatile. I want to see a white girl getting a blowout, and a black girl getting a weave. When I was younger, I didn't want to work in an all-white salon, but I dreamed of an atmosphere where it was mixed together."
