On this episode of “LA Hair,” it’s a big day at the salon. First, today is Lisa’s 21st birthday (wink-wink) and secondly, Naja won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records on the day before. So Kim orders two cakes to celebrate the occasions and Dontay quickly points something out to Kim. “Why would you order two cakes on the same day for two people who don’t like each other?”
Dontay…really? Yeah, stir that pot. He and Anthony feel Naja had her moment to shine the day before. It’s now Lisa’s turn – alone.
Naturally, being reminded that she does not like Naja sends Lisa walking off back to her station. Naja approaches Lisa to say she does not have a problem with her. Let’s make peace. Let us break bread, rather eat cake together. Too bad Lisa doesn’t feel the same way. A little birdie told her Naja has been saying some very nasty things about her. Namely, she looks like a man. Welled up with anger, Lisa tells Naja what she’s heard and asks point blank if she’s looking like a man right now, “Do you see an Adam’s apple?”
Jersey girl, Naja has yet to learn the art of refraining from making snide comments, leans forward and says, “Yeah, kind of.”
Before you can say “wash and set,”, these two get to squabbing, windmilling, hair-pulling and fingernail yanking. Naja tops Lisa’s bun off her head and Naja loses a fingernail, costing her a trip to Urgent Care. That sure was a good amount of blood on Naja’s shirt. At first, I thought the chick lost a finger. But before Leah drives the bleeding Naja to the facility for medical treatment, Naja makes it clear that Kim Kimble Studio is not big enough for her and Lisa. Ultimately, all this foolishness causes Kim to break down and cry. She can’t have clients coming in and being frightened off because they didn’t know they would be walking into a wrestling match. Never mind the day-to-day smack talk and arguing.
Lisa packs up her things and leaves, but is she gone for good this time? After all, she has left before. Oh, this didn’t have to be folks. However, let it be a lesson to everyone. Having two cakes in a room is evil and is the true source behind strife.
Lisa and Naja’s fight has worn out the other hair stylists to the point where they don’t feel like seeing the clients who are waiting on them to perform some hair magic. So the new receptionist has no choice but to report this mutiny to Kim and Leah and this latest rebellious act raises more than Kim’s dandruff. It raises up her ire. If y’all can’t take the heat then step away from the curling iron! Get to work or get to steppin’. Follow Lisa’s example.
Still stirring the pot, Dontay meets with Angela to give an update on the Kim Kimble Khronicles, which usually has nothing to do with Kim but everything to do with her wacky staff. Case in point: The Lisa vs. Naja Smackdown. Dontay can’t wait to spill the juice to Angela who is enjoying every little detail. Why wouldn’t she? Guess who told Lisa that Naja said she looked like a man? It was Angela.
