Meet celebrity stylist Kim Kimble, star of WeTV’s reality hit show L.A Hair and one of the biggest names in black hair!
Kim, a Chicago native, is making quite a stir with her latest styles for the hottest celebrities including Beyoncé and Oprah! Yep, she is the woman behind Beyoncé’s short haircut and Oprah’s afro wig featured on the cover of Oprah’s Magazine.
“I saw Andre, Oprah’s hair stylist, on the set of ‘The Voice,’ when I was working with Shakira. He said, ‘I need a really big Afro wig.’ I said, ‘I have just the thing for you,’” recalled Kimble, a Chicago native, raised on the South Side. “When Oprah revealed the cover, I woke up with Twitter blowing up” said Kimble.
I met Kim while shooting in LA inside the BET Ford Lounge and my mouth hit the floor. I LOVE watching L.A Hair and could not believe my eyes when the “head lady in charge” walked right past me! She even paused from her busy schedule to say HELLO (you can see the hair tool in her hand). LOL!! So happy for Kim and her team… I know it’s hard work. Congrats on all of the success!
