Atlanta's Miss Lawrence Dishes on "Real Housewives" and Hair!

1017_misslawrence_singleFans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" know hairstylist Miss Lawrence is as outspoken as NeNe Leakes -- and can work a pair of stilettos just as well!

With new "Housewives" Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart joining the show for its fifth season, there will be even more drama heating up Hotlanta.

toofab's Lawrence Yee caught up with Miss Lawrence (whose working on his own line of extensions, Androgyny Hair) to talk about the upcoming season, the cast shakeup, and of course, hair!

toofab: Which Atlanta housewife has the best hair?

Miss Lawrence: That would always be my clients that I service on "Housewives": Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton. I'm not being biased, it's the truth.

toofab: Whose hairstyle did you not like?

Miss Lawrence: Kandi Burruss' hair is [pause] not that good to me. This season her hair is looking a whole lot better and tame. She's looking really, really pretty and softer.

toofab: Are you sad Sheree Whitfield is no longer on the show?

Miss Lawrence: I'm never sad when it comes to change. I think change is necessary for everyone. The only thing that I get sad about is when people move on and they have no direction.

So no, I'm not sad that Sheree is moving on. I think Sheree has her focus and she knows what she wants out of life. I'm excited for her and know the future holds great things for her.

toofab: You've styled the newest housewife Kenya Moore. What can you tell us about her?

Miss Lawrence: That's who I've been with mostly this season. It's so much fun because aside from being her hairstylist, I've known Kenya for awhile now; she was actually the first celebrity that I've ever did. She's a former beauty queen, a Miss USA, and what better muse to have to showcase your work on?

toofab: Did you know the other new housewife Porsha Stewart too?

Miss Lawrence: I didn't know her before the show and I've only been around her a couple times at a couple of the events. She's a young girl, she's cute, nice body.

The girls always clash, when you have too many girls with nice bodies and nice faces there's always some cattiness that goes on but I steer clear of it. I have no beef with Porsha; she seems to be pretty nice and I like her so far.

toofab: Anything else we can expect from Season 5?

Miss Lawrence: Keep an eye out for pure drama. It's funny because Atlanta "Housewives" is one of those shows you get the best of all worlds: you get a little bit of class, a little bit of drama, and a little bit of hood.

A lot of the girls get taken out of their element and you'll see a whole other side of them. It's going to be a really good season.

toofab: Do you think the new girls hold their own against the old castmembers?

Miss Lawrence: Kenya Moore definitely holds her own. For her to have this move to Atlanta and become a part of such a huge franchise so fast, she holds her own tremendously. Make sure you watch out for her!

toofab: What about Kim Zolciak and her spinoff show?

Miss Lawrence: I'm happy for her. Her show is doing well. She's no longer part of "Housewives." She moved on. Kim wanted something that showcased more of just her and her family -- her being a mother and a wife. You'll see her a few times pop in and out.

toofab: Which housewife has changed the most?

Miss Lawrence: I think the person that has changed the most is NeNe ... in a good way. NeNe has definitely blossomed. NeNe has done a complete 180, She really grew into the person she was called to be: an entertainer and providing a good strong foundation for her family as a woman of color.

toofab: Have any of the housewives ever wanted to borrow your shoes or bags?

Miss Lawrence: They all divas! [laughs] They all have their own stuff anyway!

You can catch Miss Lawrence and the rest of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" when Season 5 premieres on November 4th. Be sure to keep an eye out for his premium hair extension line -- Androgyny Hair -- coming out by the end of the year.
