Rihanna got herself a bit tangled up today as she went for a swim without protecting her hair, leaving her looking unsuitable for TV, hours before she was due to appear on a show.

The New York Post reported that Rihanna flew her stylist first class from Los Angeles to London because she did not want to risk a local hairdresser. After a relaxing swim and sauna Rihanna found her hair in a right mess, a source said,

When she got out, her hair was tangled and matted. She slapped a load of conditioner on but it didn’t get through the mass.

Rihanna was due to film a talk show the next day, so called her stylist Ursula Stephen. The source added

She didn’t want to take the chance on an unknown. Because they were on such a tight schedule, they had to get her on the first flight. Rihanna  didn’t care about paying a fortune.

Ummm we can’t help but feel a little offended at the fact that Rihanna blew around $24,000 to fly her stylist out rather than hire someone from London, but each to their own. We hope Rihanna learns the first rule of swimming in a wig, which is to protect it!
