Natural tresses are shaded with a honey-blonde base and copper lowlights, while pre-shaded clip-in pieces are added between strands to add fullness. A thermal protectant is applied to lengths, which are then blow-dried straight and sculpted into soft ringlets using a curling wand. This look is held in place using a light holding spray.




Celebrity stylist Dr. Boogie knows what it takes to make it in the beauty industry. “You have to be bold,” explain the hair pro. “Walk up to celebrities and say, ‘I’m the one for you!’ or ‘I should be doing your hair.” That is how Dr. Boogie scored his first celebrity client and since then he’s styled Vivica A. Fox, LisaRaye, Keyshia Cole and more.


Dr. Boogie shares how his advice for aspiring hairstylists.

“I’ve learned you have to make friends with the publicists, managers and producers because they are the ones who write the checks and sit in production meetings. Networking in the business is amazing.”
