Photo A-Dr. Boogie HeadshotCelebrity stylist Dr. Boogie, who has worked with stars like Vivica A. Fox, Debbie Allen and Kym Whitley and serves as a Sophisticate’s Black Hair consultant, was named a Hope Angel for October—Domestic Violence Awareness Month—by the Jenesse Center, the oldest domestic violence intervention program in south Los Angeles.

The Jenesse Center is honoring the star stylist for his volunteer service of providing self-esteem building makeovers and glamour shot portraits as gifts to the center’s clients.

Dr. Boogie’s own experience with domestic violence goes back to childhood. “Oftentimes, I would see those close to me sad, hurting and crying. I would do their hair and it always seemed to help raise their spirits,” he recalls of how he could make relatives around him feel better when they were suffering from instances of abuse. “I came to understand that on a very deep level, when you look good, it helps you feel better. I understand on a personal level the trials the women who come to the Jenesse Center are experiencing. Bringing a little sunshine into their lives probably makes me happier than them! I love being able to share my gift; it is honestly the best part of what I do.”
