To create the look, Tym flat ironed Taraji’s hair using MIZANI ThermaStrength Heat Protecting Serum. He sectioned each piece, smoothing hair out in an upward motion to shape the hair.

Then, he brushed the hair into a sleek high ponytail using a Boar hair brush, further smoothing and molding the hair with edge taming gel, and secured the hair with an elastic ponytail holder.

Once set, he twisted and wrapped the ponytail around itself and secured with bobby pins. To finish, Tym set the hair with MIZANI’s HRM spray to fight frizz and give a light hold.
