Celebrity Stylist


Kim Kimble

Kim Kimble styles the tresses of some of the biggest stars (including Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Kerry Washington and more) while starring in her hit reality TV show L.A. Hair. Here, Kim shares her background in the beauty industry and her life as a celebrity hairstylist…

GLAM GIRL: “Ever since I can remember I was assisting in my mother’s salon and learning about hair with my grandmother. Hair has always influenced my life and hairstyling was something that has come easy for me.”

ON THE MOVE:  “My job is never boring or typical. I am a lot of things: a celebrity hairstylist, hair design consultant, product manufacturer and salon owner. Whether I am flying to different locations for award shows, photo shoots, music videos or having a meeting regarding my product line, each day is completely unique and enjoyable.”

ADVICE TO ASPIRING STYLISTS: “First start with beauty school. Get a good foundation, take as many classes as you can, practice great professional skills, find a great mentor and stand out! Work as hard as you can to learn; you will get out what you put in and be ready when an opportunity arises! Agency representation is a very helpful tool as well.”
