SBH BLOG: Braxton Beauty

 6-25 Tamar

If you’re anxiously awaiting the return of WE tv’s Braxton Family Values for its fourth season but need a dose of Braxton beauty to hold you over, Sophisticate’s Black Hair has just what you need. The fabulous and talented Tamar Braxton shared her beauty secrets and tips with SBH in an exclusive interview, and we’re giving you the deets…

WIGS VS. WEAVES…“I’ll do a full wig or I’ll do a fall, where my hair is out in the front and the rest is in a wig in the back. That’s what I like to wear the most because it’s more versatile and you can do whatever you want: put it in a ponytail, put it in a bun, put a headband in—it’s just so easy.”

MOM’S MANE TIPS…“[My mom] believes in clipping your edges—not cutting—clipping them just so they will grow. She also believes in deep conditioning. We would always have to sit under the dryer and I hate it to his day, but it works!”

MAKEUP MOVES… “Lately I’ve had somebody do my hair and makeup every time we film, but when it’s not available I’ll do it myself and it will take about an hour. I do a light face: I love M.A.C. and Bobbi Brown because it doesn’t break out my skin at all. I also like Laura Mercier. They have a great translucent powder where after you finish you can set it and it doesn’t change the color.”
