“It was something that she’s never done before,” said Tym of his Rapunzel-length creation. “We’ve never seen her in extremely long hair. Everybody does the classic center part sleek ponytail, but I wanted to add some drama to it. Everything was so clean and just effortless. I just wanted it to be a surprise, like ‘Damn did she really turn around with hair to her ankles damn near?’”

PRO-TIP:  “Make sure to have top quality hair that has length. You don’t want it to be shedding or tangled. Make sure to get the right amount of hair, too. When going that length, two bundles just won’t do. Three won’t even do it. And break up the length, too. Go 36, put some 34s, put 28s, 26s, so it can have some layers and not be so weighted. Play with more loose textures. Curly, no – wavy, yes”
