White Haute: The Kimble Hair Studio

Red-carpet regulars clamor to this newly renovated salon for its high-tech tools, zen-like aura and haute—yet healthy—styles.

Known for taming the tresses of some of Tinseltown’s most elite entertainers—Beyoncé, Shakira and Gabrielle Union among them—Kimberly Kimble recently debuted a super-slick makeover of her namesake West Hollywood salon, The Kimble Hair Studio.

The modern, white-washed space features personal mini-flat screen televisions at each hair station, massage chairs at both shampoo bowls and projector screens throughout the salon that show reels of music videos, fashion shows and other stylish imagery.

Owner: Kimberly Kimble
Location: West Hollywood, California
Reopened: December 2007
Total square feet: 900
Salon setup: 4 styling stations, 2 shampoo bowls
Construction time: 3 weeks
Equipment manufacturers: Salon Designers (stylist stations, bench); Salon Equipment (vibrating massage chairs, shampoo bowls; Belvedere (dryers and steamers); Freestyle (hanging blowdryers); Exclusive Audio Visual (flat screen TVs and projectors); and Triple A (signage).

“I wanted to tailor my salon for today’s modern woman—for clients who enjoy the latest technology,” Kimble explains.

Despite the salon’s larger-than-life clientele and the va-va-va voom styles, The Kimble Hair Studio is an intimate salon with only four styling stations. The boutique-sized space allows Kimble to offer clients the celebrity treatment, even for the non-famous who aren’t plagued by paparazzi.

As part of her decor, Kimble chose to put her motto in writing—literally. Clients trust they’re in good hands by a quote that hangs prominently in the salon: “It is Kimberly Kimble’s philosophy that healthy hair and great style should coexist.”
