Tamar’s signature style used to be long blonde wigs. The “Love and War” artist revealed in a 2018 interview on “The Steve Harvey Show” that she purchased over 100,000 blonde hair pieces to please her now ex-husband Vincent Herbert. “I believe in being attractive for your mate. I used to have all blonde wigs. I have a 150,000 of them at my house…Vince liked blonde hair…light, fair women. I wasn’t born with no blonde hair. But for me I think that’s a responsibility that women have…it’s to stay current for your man,” she said.
