LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Tamar Braxton is weaving a new look into reality TV programming, one strand at a time. Tamar Braxton weaves, wigs, and fair hair additions are spinning the fascination of news and fans this second season of WETV’s Braxton Family Values. Usually reality TV stars have to defend accusations of their shows being fake. But Tamar Braxton tells news she has no problem being a successful reality TV star with fake hair.
In fact, as Essence and BET News report this week, part of the fascination about Braxton Family Values has been the exceptional sense of style from all the sisters, including Tamar. With that comes the admission that the look is not always so natural.
When interviewed by Essence, Tamar admits she likes the variety. And she admits that her personality comes out through the show, and her selection of styles. “I have become a slave to the wig and the weaves,” reveals Tamar. “I love the quickness and the fullness. Plus I would never dye my hair because it falls out like a bolt of lightning.”
BET tells news that the changing look of all the sisters, episode to episode, is what helps keep the series fresh for viewers. You “can usually be seen sporting one style in one episode and a completely different look the next” says BET. And yet, as the tensions grow on Braxton Family Values, so does the flipping of the hair back and forth in synchronization with the fingernails.
“My number-one priority is healthy hair,” Tamar says. “When I do wear a weave, I don’t keep it for a long time and I make sure my own hair is braided and very well moisturized.” She tells news “I also don’t put any chemicals in my hair.”
