Meet Toni Coburn Howard's hair stylist for the last 17 years. She was trained as a hair stylist in London (England) and worked on the set of Private Parts with master hair stylist Colleen Callaghan.
Here, she shares what she does to keep Howard's hair looking so good all these years.
The hair products I use on Howard is a fine science. We get the formula down and then they discontinue a product. It's very frustrating and annoying, because we then have to go through a lot of trial and error to replicate it.
Our current regime is....
Sebastian Wet Look - it's discontinued so we bought up as much as we could. This helps hold Howard's curls through the drying process
Then after Howard's hair is dry I put in a combination of two different waxes. The first is a water based wax Remino Dry Wax to which I then I add a dash of American Crew Grooming Cream for shine.
This gives Howard's curls definition and some added hold.
When I work with Howard on AGT I sit by the TV monitor and keep an eye on his hair. Occasionally I'll see a hair out of place or sticking up, so I'll run up to the desk between acts and fix it.
It always make me laugh when I hear people imply Howard's hair isn't all his. He has the most amazing full head of hair, with hardly any gray!
