What Lace!?: Arrogant Tae Is Black Hollywood's Wig Slayer

What Lace!?: Arrogant Tae Is Black Hollywood's Wig Slayer

Keep the lace secured!

Published October 16, 2018

Thanks to the popular Atlanta-based hairstylist Arrogant Tae, this year's fashion week was Nicki Minaj’s best yet.

He quickly got the Queen together after rumors flew that she had a falling out with her previous hair stylist, who she shared with Cardi B, Tokyo Stylez. But before Tae was going viral for the number of slayed wigs Nicki has debuted in the past few weeks, he was Teyana Taylor’s secret weapon and was doing hair for our favorite Instagram models like Dream Doll and Bernice Burgos

When Teyana Taylor vouged her way through fashion week in 2017, Arrogant Tae was behind her platinum blonde lewks and was just beginning to branch out of Atlanta aka the hair capital. Fast forward to becoming Nicki’s now go-to stylist, Tae has now created iconic looks with bomb color waves and has set the standard for how a good lace wig should look. Whether he is prepping for Milan Fashion Week or a night out at the club, Arrogant Tae's clients are always going to have you asking, “What lace"?
