Read a few excerpts of Kim’s interview with Essence Magazine
ESSENCE.com: Some would argue that not all reality shows portray African-American women in a positive light with all the drama and the cattiness. Where does L.A. Hair fit into the reality show landscape?
KIMBLE: You’re definitely not going to see anyone getting her weave pulled out! If you thought you were going to see that, you won’t. Everybody has been to a hair salon before and knows some of the drama that goes on in the salon so there’s a little bit of drama on the show to spark your interest, but there is always a solution to the drama. That’s the difference. Viewers will find themselves asking every week, “Oh my goodness, how did that situation turn out?” Another thing that makes our show different is you’ll learn a thing or two about hair. You’ll be inspired to do different hairstyles because the cast is so talented and everybody does beautiful hair. Women are always thinking about their hair and want to know what’s hot and what products to use, so there will be an educational aspect to the show as well.
ESSENCE.com: What do you hope viewers take away from the show?
KIMBLE: I really have a love for the hair industry and I opened up my life and my business so that people can learn more about us and what we do. I wanted to set a good example for the industry and inspire other women who ask me how they can become a celebrity hairstylist. There are so many things that Black women can do — we can be Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, an astronaut or even a celebrity hairstylist. I just want to represent my profession so people can really see what it’s like and how I was able to achieve my dream.
