Just call celebrity hairstylist Oscar James a magician because when he touches hair magic happens. Between doing Tyra Banks’ hair 3 times a week for “The Tyra Banks Show” and working with her on “America’s Next Top Model” James is the mane man of the moment and dishes how to get Tyra's star studded style.

“This dress was so sexy and simple that I wanted Tyra’s hair to be short and modern. I tucked most of her natural hair away and made custom hair pieces that we clipped in and cut into a layered bob. I left out only enough of her natural hair to cover the pieces. I used a flat iron to get the roundness that I wanted to achieve. The only products that we used that night was a pomade on her hairline to help it lay and shine and a little holding spray.
Avoid the choppy-weave look by putting lots of thin wefts in rather than a few thick ones; that way when you cut, it will look more like real hair. Use a razor on the ends of the hair to soften it and make it appear more natural.”
