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.

unnamed-1Press Pass LA had the chance to sit down Faust to talk about what it is like to be on a hit show.

PPLA:  What do you enjoy the most about being apart of the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta show?

MF:  The relationships made while being on the show and the doors being opened for me have been the best part.  It has been an awesome experience.

PPLA:  Do you have a favorite aspect of Atlanta, Georgia, that you truly love?

MF:  Atlanta, Georgia, is really awesome, it is a beautiful scenery and everything is up and coming.  I moved here as a very young girl and I consider it home.

PPLA:  Is there a hobby that you practice faithfully?

MF:  I am well rounded in a lot of things; however, I love to decorate homes.

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

MF:  I love Zara right now and both Zara and H&M clothing can be worn and paired with a nice pair of shoes.  Giuseppe is my top shoe brand that I love and Louboutin, Miu Miu and Charlotte Olympia follows as  favorites as well.

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.

PPLA:  Do you have any upcoming projects our PPLA fans can look forward to?MimiFaust_LoveAndHipHopAtlanta

MF:  I am working on a ton of projects right now.  I am still writing and rewriting a book and partnering with a haircare line.  I am definitely interested in acting and looking for a movie opportunity!

PPLA:  Describe yourself in one word.

MF:  Alive.
