Ursula has revealed how she designed the edgy look on Rihanna. The beauty wowed using the cut, and Ursula states the model is easy to re-create with the help of an expert.
"I created a sleek foundation by relaxing the hair with Motions Silkening Shine Relaxer System. Next, i cleaned and molded her hair. I designed the sides and back of the head with clippers, adding Motions Foaming Cover Lotion to the longer hair at the overhead and molded it upward and towards the right side of her head," she explained.
"She sat under a hooded hair dryer to set the model. Next, I curled sections of her hair in a backward motion, up and away from her face. I finished with Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade and Motions Hold and Shine Squirt to keep it set up."
