Kim Kardashion-West has enlisted the help of hair extraordinaire Kim Kimble to teach her how to braid North West’s hair. The Kims got together for a private hair-braiding tutorial where we watched Kim struggle to follow the technique on her mannequin head. However, by the end of the episode she seemed to master Northie’s signature double French braids. Kimmy’s plight is one many mothers of mixed children go through, but not every mom has a Kim Kimble up their sleeve.
So just how did she swing a braiding session with the go-to celebrity hairstylist? “I’ve worked with some of her hairstylists in the past and shared my products with them. And I had actually worked with her one time so she reached out and asked if I could give her some pointers on braiding North West’s hair. And I said, ‘Sure’,” Kimble told BET.com.
“To be honest, she does a wonderful job with her daughter’s hair. I think she picked up pretty well on it. I’m pretty sure she has some experience with braiding so it’s just a matter of perfecting what she already kind of knew. And I definitely saw the progression,” she added.
Kimble is an expert at working with the various hair textures of women of color and that’s exactly why Kim Kardashian sought her help specifically. For this reason getting a one-on-one with Kimble is a bit pricey — $ 2,500 a day to be exact. WOW!!!
