We all know the struggle of finding that one stylist that “gets” your hair and, for celebs, it’s no exception. Whether through trial and error or handpicked, we see them sticking with their tried and trues over the years from cover to cover. And the same can be said for R&B royalty Mary J. Blige who has been styled by hair goddess Kimberly Kimble’s “magic hands” for more than a decade, showcasing a wide range of her signature blonde tresses.
Often, when celebs go blonde, the colors are washed out flat and lifeless. It’s the total opposite when these two team up. Kimble always delivers drama with highlights, rooted textures and layered levels of color. It’s always inspiring to see Kimble help recreate and reinvent looks for Blige that are just as raw, regal and multidimensional as she is.
With Blige’s appearance on Thursday’s (July 30) premier of Kimble’s reality television series “LA Hair”, we decided to take a look through a few of their most memorable looks over the years, starting with the shot above. In it, the Queen of Hip Hop Soul is serving all sorts of slayage for Healthy Living’s August 2015 cover with this rooted, center part classic bob that perfectly frames her face. Yaasss!
