Divine AND FRIENDS
These girlfriends get through bad hair days together --
and anything else that life in L.A. throws at them!
Kylie Sanderson isn't looking for a handout or anyone's charity -- what she needs, as she summons up her courage outside the Crowning Glory Hair Salon, is a job. Tired of moving, currently homeless, she's learned to depend on herself, not her hard-partying and irresponsible mother, which is why she's quit school and is desperate to work. Now, thanks to the salon's owner, Kylie is the shampoo girl at Crowning Glory, and almost overnight her life turns around: she has a place to call home, a future as a stylist, and a dream of one day going to college. And when she meets diva sensation Kara Matthews and spends a luxurious weekend with the superstar's faithful and welcoming family -- including her styling daughter, Divine -- Kylie truly feels like someone should pinch her, because she must be dreaming! Then out of the blue, Kylie's mother turns up with plans to make a fresh start...but is Kylie ready to trust her and forgive the past?
