Dr. Boogie, who is well-known for styling hip hop stars, is revealing his do-it-yourself tips in a series of hairstyling e- books sold on his website, boogiesecrets.com.
Although Dr. Boogie makes it look easy, his first steps down the road to success were hair raising to say the least.
He says Beauty Shop star Kimora Lee Simmons once asked him to glue a ponytail into her hair for a special event. Dr. Boogie says he warned her that his hair glue was old and spoiled, but she insisted.
He says the glue smelled like dead fish, and although he tried to cover up the stench with perfume, the smell was horrific and Simmons stank all night.
Then there was the time he gave rapper Eve a new look by cutting her hair short and bleaching it. Dr. Boogie says Eve hated me for weeks, but eventually she became known for her look.
