Reality TV Show “LA Hair” Season 2 Premiere in Chicago!

In Chicago you ask? Yes ma’am! So, Angela from the WE hit reality TV show LA Hair, which stars celebrity hair stylist Kim Kimble, hosted a screening party last week in Chi-Town. Let’s just say that the event was quite "hairtabulous" if we don’t say so ourselves! Chicago showed the city's native Angela tons of love and support for her success with LA Hair. The ladies showed out with their “long hair don’t care” weaves, and the fellas even showed support which served as plenty of eye candy for the ladies!

With all of this being said… episode 1 of season 2 showcases just how fabulous and remarkably talented the stylists of LA Hair are with precision cutting, luscious long hair curling, custom ombre hair coloring and what reality show is complete without a little DRAMA!

Angela loves Indique and says that she’s been wearing it for years. It was Indique’s pleasure to show our love and support to Angela.
