This article is taking a look at the indelible Kim Zolciak and investigating where in the world she gets her wigs.
Kim Zolciak is a personality-packed powerhouse diva. This celebrity exploded onto our screens back in 2008 in the hit show, Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Kim has made no secret about her wig hair love affair and is said to spend up to $12’000 a month on her “good hair days” (that’s wig collection to you and me). Don’t believe me? Watch Jimmy Kimmel do the math in the video below.
Right internet sleuths, I’m Bianca, and I’m here to help you figure out where Kim gets her wigs from! I myself am a wig-wearing aficionado and theater-girl from London. And I want to help you get to the truth behind this blonde diva’s delectable tresses.
Ready to start sleuthing? Let’s get started!
Why Does Kim Zolciak Wear a Wig
Kim Zolciak is a woman of many talents. Singer, songwriter, TV personality, performer, and self-professed Drama Queen. She is also fiercely devoted to her husband and children and says family always comes first.
That’s why she loves wigs so much. She prefers to have them all ready and styled in her Wig Room waiting on her trusty wig mannequin who she has lovingly named Quinn Zolciak.
With a whole room full of perfectly coiffed wigs, she can pop one on and be out the door and “TV ready” in 45 minutes. This frees up her time, so she can spend more quality time with her family every day.
I think women everywhere can relate. I know when I do a full face with hair blowout and curl, it can take anywhere from 2 to 2.5 hours to get ready. Whereas if I’m just doing my face, I can be out the door in 30 minutes!
So Kim is saving herself 2 hours a day on average. That’s an extra 14 hours a week! Hmmm…. she might be onto something. Maybe I need a wig room too!
Who Are Kim Zolciak’s Stylists?
Kim Zolciak has famously had two hairstylists since she arrived on our screens.
The first hairstylist was Derek J. He did Kim’s wigs and hair back in 2012 for the hit spinoff show “Don’t Be Tardy”, and specifically styled her wedding wig when she married husband Kroy Bierman.
Derek J doesn’t recommend a particular style of wig or wig brand, but Kim is said to say some of her wigs back in 2010 – 2012 were synthetic hair, so we can assume Derek sourced and styled those for her.
Kim’s current hair and wig stylist is Niki T Pressley, who has worked on 7 seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Niki is an Atlanta-born stylist who is available for weddings, special events, and Real Housewives, obviously!
Niki is a whiz at styling Kim’s real hair and her wigs. They also seem to have a close relationship and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. This partnership has led to many hair highs and lows that they have learned from and laugh about.
Where Does Kim Zolciak Get Her Wigs?
So as you can see, Kim Zolciak is a bit tight-lipped about where she gets her wigs from. And so are her stylists! Which makes answering this question a little tricky, however, I have a fun fact for you!
Following on from her successful 2016 beauty launch, Kim Zolciak has decided to expand into her own wig line. If Kim’s beauty range, Kashmere, is anything to go by, the wig line will be elegant, classy, and beautifully presented.
In fact, WZ Locks made a debut appearance on RHOA way back in 2010 for co-star Kandi’s birthday. Kim took one of her prototype hairpieces and presented it to her friend as a beautiful birthday gift. The amazing thing was Kim went all out decorating the box the wig came in so much that the box almost stole the show!

So What’s Next?
Due to the whole Global Pandemic thing, Kim has had to delay the launch of her decade-long dream of KZ Locks. But that’s not stopping her wigs from making headlines!
Kim has amassed a huge collection of over 150 wigs that she has decided to auction off, with all proceeds going to charity. The auction date hasn’t been set yet, but Kim is passionate about wigs and helping people, so this seems like the logical next step for her.
Even though Kim left The Real Housewives of Atlanta back in 2012, halfway through season 5 in a dramatic exit, she launched “Don’t Be Tardy” a spinoff show. The hit spinoff found success and lasted for 8 seasons. Bravo confirmed earlier this year that Season 8 will be the last season of “Don’t Be Tardy.”.
The next step for Kim and her family is apparently a new show called “The Beirman Bunch” that she announced to her fans on Instagram in May 2021. As yet, we are waiting to see which network will be launching the show and air date.

Kim Zolciak is a big personality and is adored by fans across the world. She has a global following and the world has enjoyed watching her struggles, triumphs, and her growing family.
Her good nature and humanitarian ways are showing themselves more in her more recent charitable efforts and how she uses her platform for good.
She reminds me of another iconic, wig-wearing blonde-bombshell in some regards. The indelible and unforgettable Dolly Parton. Both are blonde, bubbly, songstresses who have captured the hearts of nations and champion wearing wigs on a daily basis.
