Celebrity Hair Stylist Tym Wallace

Celebrity hairdresser Tym Wallace has turned the phrase “tossed by Tym” into #HairGoals. In an exclusive Sophisticate’s Black Hair interview we spoke with the mane pro about his work with actress Taraji P. Henson on her action film, Proud Mary. Check it out!

ON-SCREEN STYLE: “This is the third film I’ve done with Taraji P. Henson. I developed looks for Taraji based off the character [she plays] and I try to develop a look to bring the character to life…We developed a look that was very versatile because she starts off as a super badass—a hit women—and there’s a turning point in her life where she becomes less focused on what was taking place in her life.”

COIF CHANGES: “It’s literally two looks, two wigs. One wig was the entire storyline but of course we styled it different. We pulled it up into a ponytail when she was working out or when she was fighting. We straightened the wig and then we put some texture to it for one of the looks. Then there was a scene where she was really dolled up and we gave her a sexy “beach” wave.

↑ Taraji P. Henson easily slips into the film role…thanks in part to the right hairstyle.

↑ “She trusts her team. She’s so easy to work with, she’s super hilarious. It’s work but it’s not work because she makes it so pleasant,” notes hair pro Tym Wallace.
