Guess Who’s Going to Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour and Getting a New ‘Do?

So just as I was putting on the finishing touches on my “Where Have You Been?” dance, I got a call from my friends at Motions Hair that I’ll be in the building this Saturday as Rihanna makes her NYC concert stop at Barclays Center in Brooklyn! PLUS, Motions’ Global Ambassador and celebrity stylist du jour, Ursula Stephen (aka the woman behind MANY of Rihanna’s hair moments) is opening her first salon in Brooklyn and I get to have a firsthand sneak peek before it opens :)


Why all the celebrating you might ask? Well, Motions is also releasing a new hair line called Straight Finish Heat Styled System for those of us with natural hair who sometimes like to wear our hair straight (which I’ll be trying out for the concert so I also have to figure out a new hairstyle!). From what I gather, the Motions Straight Finish line enlists the power of a blend of natural oils and Keratin Protein (non-chemical of course!) to prep, protect, and seal naturally curly hair without compromising your curl pattern. The 3-step system lets you go from curly to straight and then bounce right back to your natural curls when you wash it again – genius! The line is available at Target and Walmart, as well as on and it sounds like one to rush out and try if you’re a natural girl that likes to change up your look from time to time. You can be straight and sexy for a night out with my girls and bounce right back to your laid back curls the very next day.

Speaking of versatility – that’s the name of my game. You’ve seen me wear my hair straight a lot through hair extensions, but I’ve never really worn my own hair out and straight so I’m excited to put Motions Straight Finish to the test! So, how will I wear my hair is the big question!? I’m thinking a layered, edgy bob—something that will look good straight and curly. Or I could skip the layers and use some clip-ins for fun. Okay back to my hairstyles…

Okay back to my hairstyles…

I’m loving this bob Rihanna wore at the 2011 Grammys! It would be cute for a concert since I can tuck my hair behind my ears once I start sweating from my rendition of “We Found Love.”

Ahh, I can’t decide! Help me by leaving your comments below!

    I’m excited about all of the above! Can’t wait to hear more info about the products and Ursula’s new salon….do you know what part of Brooklyn it will be in? My immediate reaction is that I can’t wait to visit, but at the same time I’m sure it’s going to be pricey, so I may have to slow my role!…Lol

    Ciara’s, definitely!

    Well, I was going to guess Chris Brown but I’d vote for the long bob she’s sporting in the first picture.
