To say that Grammy-nominated artist Tyla has been heating the 2023 musical charts is an understatement. The South African Queen blew up earlier this year with her afro-beat hit, Water, quickly rising to the top 20 of the Billboard charts and racking up over 675 million views on TikTok. The infectious song has spawned thousands of TikTok dances from fans replicating her signature moves and even led to a remix with Travis Scott. What better way for her to end the year than gracing the cover of the December issue of Glamour SA?!

Rocking her voluminous ‘fro, Tyla sat down with the Glamour team to talk about her musical journey, growing up in a predominately white school, and, of course, her relationship with her hair which, she credits to Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils.

The artist shares, “My parents weren’t able to spend on the hair products I love because there were five of us, so as soon as I started making my own money, I spent my coins on the 3-for-2 sales on Aunt Jackie’s products.” Her daily go-to product? Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La Defining Curl Custard. When discussing her hair journey with Glamour, she cites that she loves “trying out new hacks” and that embracing her texture came after years of feeling the pressure to straighten it at a predominantly white school.

Tyla’s stylist, Kelvin Takudzwa, wanted to create an 80s-inspired look reflecting top-tier volume for her first cover. He transformed Tyla’s hair using Aunt Jackie’s hydrating leave-in conditioner and saw palmetto elixir essential oils. Her additional images put the power of her texture on display with an ornate fishtail braid, sleek swoops, and an edgy top knot bun. Each look was created to bring out her fun and vivacious personality.
