Spanning a 25-year career, Elgin Charles built his brand as the only black celebrity hair stylist in posh Beverly Hills. With an A-list client list which includes Diahann Carroll, Drew Barrymore, Serena Williams, Gabrielle Union, Estelle, Verdine White, Star Jones, and Tia & Tamera Mowry, Elgin Charles is no joke.
