On Life of Kylie, fans get an inside look at Kylie Jenner’s life, which includes her glam squad. Over the past few years, Jenner has changed up her hair with new dye ‘dos, as well as a ton of wigs. So, who is behind some of her fab hair looks? Hairstylist Tokyo Stylez, whose brand is “Touched By Tokyo,” is the man behind her hair.
Via Stylez’s professional website, fans can purchase wigs, check out classes and learn more about the hairdresser. Currently, there is only one class listed for an expo in September 2017 in London. For those looking to shop on Stylez’s site, he provides hair items, wigs, and hair fragrances. Wigs range in price from $750.00 to $1,250.00 and can be made to order in custom designs. Some custom designs have totaled $4,000.00.
Stylez has done hair for a ton of celebrities, including Nicki Minaj, Naomi Campbell, Gabrielle Union, Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, Tamar Braxton, Lil Kim, Porsha Williams, Toni Braxton, and Teyana Taylor. He has also styled for countless television shows and award shows.
In an interview with Allure, Stylez said that he first started simply with hair extensions, but cancer patients inspired him to get into making wigs. He dished:
Cancer patients started asking me if I did wigs, and at the time I didn’t. So I decided to research it on YouTube, and I just started building wigs. At first they weren’t as great as they are now, but I built up to the level I’m at within two to three years. I do more wigs now than ever—before it was a lot of sew-in extensions, but now I barely do extensions.
So, how did Stylez get involved with Kylie Jenner? Just like she did with her makeup artist Ariel Tejada, Jenner reached out to Stylez on Instagram.
Originally, Stylez hailed from Omaha, Nebraska and he now lives in Washington D.C., though he splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
