For the cost of one year’s in-state college tuition, Rihanna keeps her hair laid. According to a member of the singer’s entourage, Rih-Rih spends a whopping $22,400 a week to employ the services of super stylist Ursula Stephen.

The hair maven, who’s responsible for all of Rihanna’s trendsetting ‘dos, charges a daily retainer fee of $3,200. “She makes several public appearances a week, and the cost soon stacks up,” reveals the source to the UK’s Daily Mail. “Ursula is a close confidante and they are together all the time. You have to wonder why she insists on keeping such an expensive member of her entourage on the payroll 24/7. Most of these costs are paid for by her management.”

Rihanna just recently abandoned her infamous red tresses for brown, two-toned waves. Guess you really do have to pay the cost to be the boss.
