“The Wizard,” as Tyson's called by his clients, is determined to show America that hair isn't just a look — it's a science. His hair styling is progressive, and he loves traveling to new places, constantly aiming to discover new ways to elevate hair design. He sees it as just that — hair design –- not just hair styling.
When “Shear Genius” open calls came to his attention, Tyson had recently sold his salon in Salt Lake City after seven and a half years. He traveled to Los Angeles, and the next day, he had two emails forwarded to him about the casting call. It took him a week to decide why he'd ultimately go for it — he felt that he could “show an elevated perspective on hair design that could inspire both the public and fellow hair designers.”
Tyson says he loves to help bring out the beauty that is already in someone. He says he's a kid at heart and a passionate designer.
