When we began to toy with the idea of CurlSistas back in March, one of the series we wanted to bring forth was Curl Diaries, an intimate interview with hair insiders and natural hair celebs. The first person I thought of was my friend, celeb hair stylist Ursula Stephen (who gave Rihanna her signature cut years ago). This was my second time interviewing (the first was at her salon opening in a fun piece for The Huffington Post). This time, a year had passed and we hung out in her beautiful Brooklyn Salon- The Salon by Ursula Stephen- one beautiful Saturday afternoon.
Ursie and I talked about everything from the aftermath of Rihanna's iconic bob, her favorite natural hair products and what she would say to her 16 year old self- a heartwarming and emotional part of the interview. Then we chatted about some fun personal stuff, like her Basketball Wives obsession and fav things to do on her day off. And of course she couldn't finish without a bit of advice to aspiring stylists. Check out the video below and fall in love with the fabulous Ursula Stephen : ) She's the most down to earth, sweetest person you'll ever meet!
