"But yesterday for me was a little bit more about the executives," he confides. "Do I want to do movie stars or the people who give them jobs? You can say I did some of the most powerful people in Hollywood." Not that he's mentioning any names. In the past he's worked with Madonna, Kiefer Sutherland, Kirsten Dunst, Alicia Silverstone and Tobey Maguire.

Here's something everyone knows in the black community: Black women do not come out in public with their hair looking a mess. Unh-unh, sister. They just don't do it. And if they do, you know something has to be wrong. Someone has died, perhaps. Or a crazed burglar broke in and stole every brush, comb, curling iron, hair care product, wig, ball cap, bobby pin, butterfly clip and ponytail holder in the house. So how did Dr. Miracle's - an African-American hair care company fairly new to the beauty market - persuade dozens of local women to come out on Saturday to Mondawmin Mall with uncombed, dried-out, broken-off, over-processed, matted, stringy, poofy manes of wild, uncontrollable hair all over their heads?
