Kim Kimble from "L.A. Hair" stars in the WE tv reality docu-series.

Kim Kimble is a celebrity hairstylist, beauty expert, and entrepreneur. She has been gifted in developing a niche for creating scene-stealing, high-concept looks adorned by the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Shakira, Mary J. Blige, the late Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Jada Pinkett-Smith and more. Her innovative styles and techniques have been featured internationally in the pages of fashion and beauty's chicest titles — from Vanity Fair and Allure to InStyle, Essence, Glamour, Elle and Vogue.

She has had the pleasure of working with such iconic fashion photographers as Patrick Demarchelier, Gilles Bensimon, Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz and Matthew Jordan Smith, and Kimble's work has appeared in national ad campaigns for blue chip brands including Pepsi, Neutrogena, Nike, CoverGirl, McDonald's and L'Oreal. In addition to her work behind the scenes, she has served as an industry expert in front of the camera on numerous television shows, including "Oprah," "How Do I Look?" and "Shear Genius," to name a few. 

Having started as a shampoo girl for her mother growing up around the family's Los Angeles salon, she is a third-generation hair stylist who originally aspired to become a fashion designer. After attending the famed Bronner Brothers hair show where she was exposed to the amazing styling feats and showmanship of the hair technicians on stage, her path changed. In that moment, she knew she wanted to design hair. She focused on pursuing a formal education in hair care, training professionally at both Vidal Sassoon Academy and Dudley Cosmetology University in North Carolina.  

Kimble got her big break when film producer Robert Townsend hired her as key hair stylist on the movie "BAPS," starring Halle Berry. The elaborate hairpieces that Kimble designed for the film captured the attention of Hollywood executives and talent, which led to gigs working with Brandy on "Moesha" and the TV movie "Cinderella," "The Jamie Foxx Show," "Two Can Play That Game" and "Austin Powers Goldmember," where her work with Beyonce became an ongoing collaboration. Kimble serves as primary stylist on the superstar's movie, television and music projects. 

Since then, Kimble has beautified stars on such productions as "Think Like a Man," "Sparkle," "Dreamgirls," "Something New," "Obsessed," "Johnson Family Vacation," "Deliver Us from Eva," "The Score," "Ruby's Bucket of Blood," "Big Momma's House" and "Next Friday," among others. The transition into film and television helped develop her enviable roster of notable personalities such as Gabrielle Union, Vanessa Williams, Venus and Serena Williams, Kerry Washington, Sanaa Lathan, Garcelle Beauvais, Eve, Keri Hilson and more. 

In 2000, Kimble opened her second salon, Kimble Hair Studio, in West Hollywood, California, and launched Kimble Hair Care Systems, a full range hair care line designed to address the needs of women of color with various hair textures. In addition, she developed Kimble Creations, a collection of tools, accessories and hair extensions. 

Kimble resides in Los Angeles with jer son.
