I loved Angela Simmons since her days on MTV’s “Run’s House” and the spin off with her sister Vanessa Simmons “Daddy’s Girls” where we watched them launch their women’s athletic shoewear line called Pastry. Talk about a family of entrepreneurs and philanthropists, too! Now Angela is getting in the hair extension business by partnering with Indiqué Hair to create her own line Angela Simmons by Indiqué Hair. BIKINI marks the first in her collection. In my humble opinion, I probably wouldn’t mix hair extensions with a name like “bikini.” It’s sounds like I need to reach for a bottle of Nair, LOL! Angela does explain her rationale behind the naming in a quote you’ll find in the press release below:
“Why BIKINI and why Indiqué?” asks Angela Simmons. “To me, hair is a statement and an extension of your wardrobe and I’ve always been drawn to fashion and being able to change up my look. This partnership seemed natural, much like the naming of BIKINI. A BIKINI is the staple piece during the hot summer months or while on vacation, and the name perfectly describes the beachy texture of my first hair line.”
“We’ve always admired Angela’s fashion sense and ever-changing hairstyles,“ says Ericka Dotson, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Indiqué Hair. “But it wasn’t until we worked with her 1-on-1 during the development of the product that we realized just how creative and business savvy she is. Angela represents the Indiqué woman perfectly—vibrant, bold, sophisticated, beautiful—so it seemed like a no-brainer to collaborate and create a line of extensions for our clients”…
