When they’re not tweeting about “Puppygate,” fans can’t stop discussing 51-year-old Kemsley’s hair. The woman behind her curled, accessorized and teased looks is Justine Marjan, whose other clients include Kim Kardashian West, Ashley Graham and Kristin Cavallari.
Asked whether Kemsley’s co-star Erika Girardi’s infamous wigs and extensions — or those of any of the other women on the show — have inspired Kemsley to step up her own glam game, Marjan played it coy. “I think all the girls are inspired by each other,” she said. “It’s fun to show up to an event and see everyone’s hair, makeup and wardrobe choices.”
Marjan’s favorite recent look of Kemsley’s? The wet waves she wore in the Bahamas with an Epona Valley hair accessory. “I love her hair curly (it’s her natural texture), and the wet texture was so perfect for the humid environment in the Bahamas,” she said. “I used a ton of Hidden Crown clips-ins, which gave the hair amazing fullness. She looked like a modern mermaid straight of the ocean.”
Though Marjan often uses clip-in extensions on Dorit, she says the housewife “never” wears wigs, and may eventually branch out beyond her signature blond. (“You never know!”)
When it comes to accessorizing her ‘do, Kemsley clearly isn’t afraid to pile on the bling. “Dorit is a fashion chameleon and is always willing to take a risk! I love that she trusts me to give her new hairstyles,” Marjan said, adding that the rose gold foil she wore to Lisa Vanderpump’s Diamonds and Rosé party in Season 7, Episode 17 was inspired by a 2011 Topshop fashion show in London.
And while fans might be tiring of the never-ending dog drama on “RHOBH,” it’s certainly worth tuning in to see what Kemsley’s hair is going to look like next. After all, as the star jokingly says in her Season 9 tagline: “In business and in life, I wear many hats … and hairstyles.”
That’s an understatement.
