Hype Chat: Celebrity Hairstylist Ray D Talks Weave Care and Working With Prince


HypeHair Ray D Ray D is a master with his hands. The innovative hair stylist has revamped some of our favorite celebrities, making them his loyal clientele. While he looks young and handsome his resume tells a veteran story with a-lister clients like the Purple One. “[Prince] is a great person to work with. He’s a legend. Who wouldn’t want to put him on their resume,” he tells us and he would know.

After getting hopping under celeb stylist Kim Berry’s wings, he began working with Prince on music videos and show appearances. However, his resume goes far past the most legendary and many can easily and gladly vouch for the hair greatness Mr. Ray has up his sleeves.

Notable stars he’s worked with include Britney Spears, Keyshia Cole, Cassie, Jeannie Mai, Draya Michele, Tamera Mowry-Housley, RaVaughn, Amber Riley, and Adrienne Bailon (just to name a few). And from those names alone we know he’s versatile in his craft and knows what he preaches.


We reached out to Ray to talk hair care and learn any other gems he wanted to bestow on us.
