What is your favorite Motions product and why?
Brooklyn-born Ursula Stephen is the mastermind behind some of the hottest hairstyles in Hollywood. Does the name Rihanna ring a bell? How about Jordin Sparks or Kerry Washington? Read on to discover Ursula's favorite product by Motions (the haircare brand she works with), her top hair tip and so much more.
How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to become a hairstylist?
I can't remember one first time or moment that made me interested in hair -- it was a couple of things. But when I saw how happy and beautiful I made people feel, and how happy it made me feel -- I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist.
How did you get involved with Motions? What do you like about working with them?
Motions actually found me. As the story goes, they wanted the girl behind Rihanna's haircut. One of the things I like most about Motions is that they give me the opportunity to educate women.
One of my favorite products is the Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion. You can do so many different things with it, from sculpting a short cut to scrunching it into wavy hair. It's a great lightweight product.

1) Motions Nourish Leave-In Conditioner
2) Ceramic flat iron
3) Motions Light Hold Working Spritz
4) Silk scarf
5) Great paddle brush
What is your top hair tip?
Condition, condition, condition. You must love your hair in order for it to love you back -- this way you get the best styling results.
Being a hairstylist must be fun -- but what do you do in your spare time?
Ummm, that's rare. But, I love going out to eat, catching up with friends, and just really try to relax.
