Celebrity Stylist


Celebrity Hair Guru Sherron Baylock

SBH sat down with hair pro Sherron Baylock, actress Ta’Rhonda Jones’ long-time hairstylist, who helped create some of the fabulous coifs you see on Ta’Rhonda’s Empire character “Porsha” on the hit the show. The Chicago-based stylist shares some insights on styling up her trendsetting client and some words of advice for new stylists in the beauty scene.

GETTING STARTED: Baylock got her start in Chicago at Pivot Point Academy after her mother suggested she try cosmetology school upon graduation. After enrolling in Pivot Point Academy, where she finished top ten in her class, she started her career in the beauty industry—and has been in it for over 30 years!

CELEB CLIENTS: The Chicago-bred mane maven has some high-profile clients, such as loyal client, Ta’Rhonda Jones. When Ta’Rhonda got the part of “Porsha,” on the TV show Empire Baylock was overjoyed. “When she called me [to tell me] she got the part, I cried,” she recalls. We didn’t know how big it was going to be, but I was just so happy for her. I always knew she was going to be something.”

HAIRSTYLIST DIARIES: “You never know what a woman may be going through until you start talking,” Baylock says. “As hairstylists, we play an important part in people’s lives. We have to listen to the clients because they have needs. It’s not all about their hair.
