These celebrities and many other clients have been proud to have their hair #TossedbyTym Wallace took a moment to speak with EBONY.com. In the below interview, Tym provides us with tips and trends on how to refresh our hair and celebrate Spring.
EBONY.com: What hair trends are going to be hot this Spring?
Tym Wallace: This spring is all about texture. All texture. Straight from the runway to the “everyday,” enhancing natural curls or wave patterns is the “it” this Spring.
EBONY.com: Are there any chic looks that women should try this season?
Tym Wallace: I’m a huge fan of the bob haircut. It’s such a classic cut. It will never go out of style. Diahann Carroll’s classic Bob was my inspiration for Taraji’s hair for this year’s Oscars. It’s timeless. For this season, I recommend women cropping the bob to the jawline or a little longer with a soft wispy fringe bang.
EBONY.com: What products do you recommend for a great seasonal transition from Winter to Spring?
Tym Wallace: For dry scalps that may stick around in the Spring, I recommend Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99), which helps relieve any itchiness and flakes while keeping [your] hair moisturized. Also hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Drinking more water keeps the body and hair hydrated.
EBONY.com: What are some of your favorite hair care products and why?
Tym Wallace: I really like Dove’s Absolute Curls Supreme Crème Serum ($5.99) because of its creamy, lightweight formula that’s perfect to use on dry and frizzy curls. It’ll leave curls soft and shiny, while keeping them defined.
EBONY.com: Are there any other tips that you can provide for Spring hair care?
Tym Wallace: Seek professionals to give you expertise on hair care and hair styling. Today, society is heavily influenced by social media and that stylist expertise has become overlooked and voided. DIY YouTubers have become the experts and in most cases, are only experts for themselves. Stylists, on the other hand, have been professionally-trained and have worked extremely hard to develop these skills.
