Last night I attended the premiere party for celebrity stylist Keith Campbell’s new reality hit, “The Hair Architect Show” at Manhattan’s swanky Studio 450. Slated to launch tonight on essence.com, “The Hair Architect Show” gives an up close and personal look at Keith’s search for the perfect assistant. The show reveals the competitive nature of the beauty industry and the real-life drama created by passionate students with a desire to win and jump start their careers.
