Celebrity hairstylist Derick Monroe, who has been nominated for 5 Emmys, is now emerging as a YouTube star for Behind the Scenes Beauty.

He hails from Hurt, Virginia, and speaks about the trials and tribulations on his journey as one of the most sought-after professionals in glamour. As a veteran, he has worked on several TV shows and film productions, including Bravo’s Project Runway, ABC’s The View, Till (2022), and Respect (2021).

Monroe has become well-known for his skills on The View. He’s been heavily praised for Whoopi Goldberg‘s famous blonde dreadlocks. Some of his initial TV appearances were featured on The Wendy Williams Show and The Steve Harvey Show.

Dark & Lovely’s YouTube channel features him as a brand ambassador who provides tips for protective styles.

After 3+ decades in entertainment, he has opted to create an introspective exchange, amassing millions of views. His easy-going demeanor, soothing voice, and open-ended questions have brought some of the most powerful African American women to sit across from him.

Recognizable guests include Raven Symone, Sarah Haines, Sherri Shepherd, June Ambrose, Tasha Smith, Wendy Williams, Sunny Hostin, Kenya Moore, Joy Behar, Bevy Smith, Kandi Burgess, Tabitha Brown, AJ Crimson, Sergio Hudson, Tiffany Haddish, and Tamron Hall.

In the end, Derick Monroe‘s fireside chats, which tackle difficult subjects like beauty standards and colorism, will inevitably be acknowledged by and broadcasted on a major streaming platform.
