ATL Recap: Gocha Salon Grand Opening W/ The ‘L.A. Hair’ Cast

Alexis Felder

This weekend I had the pleasure of being asked to moderate a panel with the cast of WE TV’s LA Hair for Gocha’s Salon Grand Opening. The salon is in Midtown in the cutest location right around the corner from where I take spin class.

The cast stopped by to celebrate their castmate Gocha on her successful salon opening

The special guest of honor was John Paul Dejoria who is the co-owner of Paul Mitchell and the owner of Patron Tequila.

In celebration of her salon opening, he gifted Gocha with a bottle of Gran Patron Platinum which is worth a ton of money and has crystals on it! Gran Paron Platinum

I was able to ask a couple of questions to the cast that included their inspiration for being a stylist or nail artist and who they would select on the cast to style their hair:


It was super dope with all the who’s who of ATL reality shows with ladies from Married To Medicine, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cutting It In The ATL, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and more!
