Tamar Slaughter

Tamar Slaughter is an internationally accomplished hair stylist. 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 Grandmother, Godmother and Mom get dressed, knowing that her turn would soon come. As a teen Tamar would cut, color and style her own hair 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.”

Tamar has provided support for "Black Women In Beauty" cover-shoot for Essence.com. (2020) , Deva Curl, Crème of Nature and most recently Marie Claire Latina cover shoot (2023). Other accomplishments include key hairstylist for Fujifilm and A Journey Home Film – Defender, lead hairstylist for the grand opening of The Fountaine Bleau Las Vegas, International hairstylist for The Jordana David Beauty Collective/Elan Artists Production Company, NYFW hairstylist, and Philadelphia Fashion Week hairstylist.

In addition to working as a set stylist, Tamar is an educator, with Product Club, and Pureology. She also served as an educator with Mizani 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 looks forward to working on advertising campaigns, episodic television and live theater productions.  Her goal is to add value on projects where her hair styling and leadership skills are an asset, and she can contribute creatively.
