Whitney Houston, 'Sparkle' stir memories on 'L.A. Hair' finale

July 18, 2012 | 10:24 am


Hairstylist Kim Kimble has had an exciting year, even by the standards of someone who is used to styling some of the most famous heads in Hollywood, including Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland and Shakira.

Long a force behind the scenes -- styling Beyonce in "Dreamgirls" to name just one of her credits -- this year Kimble starred in her own reality series, "L.A. Hair," on WE TV.  And she was head hairstylist for the upcoming (and much anticipated) film "Sparkle," starring the late Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks, Mike Epps and Cee Lo Green, among others.

The two worlds kind of come together in the season finale of "L.A. Hair, " airing at 9 p.m. Thursday, which features Kimble styling the hair of "Sparkle" cast member Brely Evans while the two reminisce about Houston. They shared a sneak peek with All the Rage.
