The Show Is A Joke

This show is a joke. All the stylists do is run their mouths all day instead of concentrating on their clients. Anthony is sickening and should not even be there. He acts like a buffoon. Why is he even there he can not do hair. The stylist are below average with their old fashion looking hair styles. When doing someone’s hair keep your mouth shut and concentrate on your client. They can’t get hair done because all of them are always running their mouths which is annoying. Kim looks like a made up clown and her hair always looks a mess as well as her outfits. Why is this show even on. They do nothing to promote the hair industry or even have the skills to represent the hair industry. It’s a cesspool of personal drama which no one cares about. Get rid of this show it has no value.

Too much swearing

L.A. Hair is a show that does nothing to bring out the creative juices! It's just a cup full predictable unnecessary ongoing hot catty mess from season to season filmed at Celebrity Hair Stylist Kim Kimble's L.A. hair salon. Some of the stylists are out of control petty, disrespectful and unprofessional; aside from the fact that there's little visual for those watching to see them display their masterpieces and everyone wants to be the "TOP DIVA" of the salon, while sometimes plotting against Ms. Kimble and her management team. The shows certainly not worth the hour, there's plenty of more interesting shows to watch at or even be inspired by.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series offers a voyeuristic look into the world of a high-end stylist and her staff. While there is some discussion of hair and how to cut it, color it, and/or weave it, most of the show's focus is on over-the-top drama between the staff, much of which feels staged for the cameras.

Folks who like the gossipy indulgence that comes with beauty-shop reality might find it entertaining, especially when a celeb shows up to get something done and is pleased with the results. But the constant bickering featured here might make you want to pull your hair out.
