All About Kim Zolciak’s New Hair Stylist — What Happened to Derek J?

If you’ve noticed that Kim Zolciak’s locks have looked especially fierce over the last few weeks, then you’ve seen the work of Kim’s new hair stylist, Bronx native Hadiiya Barbel.

Kim often relied on Derek J to make her wonderful wigs, but earlier this week she tweeted that she was now working with a new wig wizard. Kim wrote, “Thank you alll for alllllll the compliments on my new wig!! I have a new wig designer who is amazing @HadiiyaBarbel this is only the beginning!”

While we don’t know exactly what went down between Kim and Derek J, the two haven’t always seen eye to eye, and he is good friends with Marlo Hampton. Everyone knows that Kim is Team Small.

Hadiiya, on the other hand, is an Emmy-nominated hairstylist (for her work on The Wendy Williams Show) whose high-profile clients include Iman, Ashanti, and Angela Bassett.

It looks like Kim’s wigs are in good hands!
