Tamar Slaughter is an accomplished hair stylist with international experience. At nine years old she was doing her own hair.  By her teens she was the go-to stylist for her friends and family, and by her late 20’s she knew that her destiny was to combine her love of fashion with styling hair on set, behind the scenes in TV, film and print.

     Raised in a family with three South Philly fashionistas, Tamar has vivid memories of watching her Mom, Grandmother, and Godmother get dressed, knowing that her turn would soon come. As a teen Tamar had to get creative when she wanted to express her sense of style beyond what the family budget allowed.

     “I knew I was a creator,” says Tamar, “and bringing beauty to life through hair for myself and others made me feel beautiful and I wanted to be a part of that full time.”

     On her first production gig, Tamar saw how hair could crown an entire look, create or change a vibe, tell a story and define the personality of a character.”

     Her accomplishments include the  "Black Women In Beauty"cover-shoot for Essence.com, Elan Artists International Production Company through Jordana David Beauty Collective -JDBC, and Philadelphia Fashion Week Hairstyling Team. 

    In addition to working as a set stylist, Tamar is an educator, for Purology, and Product Club. She also served as a Mizani educator for several years.  She Graduated at the top of her class at Dudley Cosmetology University, in Kernersville NC,  and obtained her Cosmetologist Instructor's certification from the Berean Institute.

     Tamar’s goal is add value on projects where her hair styling and leadership skills are an asset, and she can contribute creatively. She looks forward to working on advertising campaigns, and episodic television.
