Kimble Hair Studio is the focus of the show, and if sales numbers of her hair products are any indication of popularity, we’ve got a hit on our hands, because two of the below products are already sold out online! Keep checking the links below for more.
If follows Kim Kimble, celebrity hair stylist, a woman who is surrounded by a diverse group of characters in her sale.
“I own a salon; I own my own products. Do you know how many people hate on me?” she asks.
She’s talking about products like this Kimble hair care system untangle the shampoo, or the Kimble hair care sytem silk treatment shampoo — or even the Kimble hair care system phorme sculpting pomade and even the Kimble hair care system hair butter all available for sale these days.
What black celebrities are going to be featured on the L.A. Hair show?
Thus far we’ve seen glimpses of Erica Campbell — one half of the popular Mary Mary group, who is doing quite well with their own WETV show as well — and other folks like Eve, Brandy, Shari Headley (where’s she been since the days of Coming to America fame?) and Omarosa — who makes her debut on the show in true Omarosa style.
The cast of characters stars out in a cat fight, true beauty shop style.
If Angela takes one more of my clients, Dontay threatens, spraying substances in the air…
Then there’s Terry, about whom Kim says, “Terry thinks he wrote the Bible on hair.”
“I know everything there is about hair,” he concurs, showing Kim a woman with hair that’s so lovely and healthy that they comment that the client’s hair is the type they sell.
And then there’s Dontay…
Perhaps aptly named, spelled Dontay but pronounced Dante (as in Dante’s Inferno) is called “a smooth-talking flirt” just as they cut to a scene of him asking a client, “You need a cocktail? You want a shot? Whatchu want?”
He talked about pulling the weave to the side, saying something about a weave isn’t a weave until you’ve peed on it.
I’m assuming he means the length of the weave getting in your way when using the potty. Interesting…
“I don’t do kids’ hair,” Angela tells a client.
Kim thinks Angela is the type who is clawing her way to the top of the celebrity stylist’s list — so Kimble says she’s got to keep her eye on her.
Last but not least is Anthony, whom Kim calls “my new one and my number one drama queen.”
All together, this crew should make up a fascinating season of hair, hair, and more weave!
My favorite part was where Kim used a hot razor to seal the cuticle on a woman who came in with short and damaged, multi-colored hair — and Kim transformed her with tape extensions, using her special skills to create the long blonde hair with barely noticeable weave tracks that she’s famous for.
That woman was in tears she was so happy.
Dontay, who also works for Access Hollywood and comes to the shop when he’s off, lightened Latoya’s eyebrows but then made them too light — so he darkened them. He is funny!
Charity the receptionist is a little ditzy and funny, too, hearing voices from behind her — and taking the blame when Angela Christine (whose name everyone will know, she says) was late for a client. But just wait till the drama unfolds when Angela styles Eve’s hair next episode — a client that Kim usually styles.
Jasmine the mom, and a hairstylist in her own right, looked pretty young at first glance, with all that weave (I assume) in her own long hair.
No holes should be showing in the hair, Kimble says, as she finished up Kelly’s hair.
At the end, Kim took everyone out to the Bodega Wine Bar to discuss the drama in the salon as of late. Angela talked about being 25 years old with her years ahead of her — and she says Kim is 40 years old, with her years dwindling. But I like what Jasmine said: You treat people right, and that will come back to you. If you don’t, well…God help us all.
I won’t spoil who the “high end” clients were — but I like when Terry said he was going to get his Bible!
