Kim Kimble


Kim Kimble has an A-list client list that is jaw-dropping, but it has taken Kim Kimble 20 years of blood, sweat and tears, to have the likes of  Taraji P. Henson, Mary J. Blige, Gabrielle Union, Sisse Marie, Tamar Braxton, & Oprah Winfrey, requesting her services.

Oh, and Kimble happens to be Beyoncé’s hair stylist, too.

Kimble has an enviable client list

Kimble has an enviable client list

Hailing from humble beginnings as a third generation hairstylist in Chicago, Kimble rose through the ranks, having her own reality show on WEtv, L.A. Hair and now owns her own salon, Kimble Hair Studio and Extension Bar, in West Hollywood. She also has her own line of hair care products and provides educational classes.

Kim Kimble says that despite her success, it didn’t come easy — by any means.


“I think that some people think that it’s easy, but it’s not easy and it didn’t just happen overnight,” she told E!. “It was years of training and classes and experimenting and working. It took me 20 years to get to where I’m at right now. People don’t see the blood, sweat and tears, the bags that I have to schlep around, the over-preparing or that I have a team helping me prepare for things on the level that I like to do because I’m just not easy like that. I like to do things extra.”

And how did she land Queen Bey as a client?

“It was around this time that Beyoncé was working on a lot of her own music and when the time came, she asked me to do the hair on her “Crazy in Love” music video,” she explains.

She may have a high-profile client list, but Kimble remains humble.

“I’m a born-again Christian, and my pastor had been preaching a lot of things about having faith and believing and asking God for what you want,” she says. “So I did that but it’s not going to just happen. I put the work in. I earned it. I had to learn as much as I could learn.”

Gina K. wrote:  “Booking with Hair By Bobby was easy and his schedule is very convenient/ flexible for my crazy work schedule. The space is small but cozy, clean and has a Bobby flare to it.

“I was welcomed with a tea and chocolate covered gingerbread cookie. During my consult, I was so tired after a long day that I wasn’t very clear with how I wanted my color to be done. I basically had some blonde highlights hand painted/dark brown roots growing out. The contrast was becoming too noticeable and my blonde looked brassy. However, the resulting look was fabulous, harmonious and exactly what I wanted. He’s obviously a mind reader.

“I love that he tries to use organic and/or least harmful methods of coloring hair. Plus, I believe I was the first client to get my hair washed with the pure alkaline water installed that day.

“I would definitely go again! My hair looks and feels great.”
