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

As a teen with no realmoney to speak of Tamar had to get creative when she wanted to express hersense of style beyond what the family budget allowed.

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