As a hardworking entrepreneur and role model, Mimi Faust makes a name for herself every week on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Faust first gained the public’s attention in 2003 when she appeared in a music video with Pharrell. In 2012 Faust joined the cast of the VH1 spin-off Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
Press Pass LA had the chance to sit down Faust to talk about what it is like to be on a hit show.

PPLA: If you have a favorite fashion brand that you love to shop at the most, please share!

PPLA: Do you have any hair and beauty tips and tricks for fall that you want to share with our fans?
MF: It depends on what you are doing with your hair; whether you are wearing it natural, or wearing weaves. My secret right now is wearing wigs because it is quick and you can change your look within 30 minutes.
