We’ve all had our fair share of bad hair days. But some have struggled with it all their lives. And this is exactly why TLC’s new reality series Bad Hair Day exists — to teach us all about the rare cases. Angela Phipps is one of the doctors working her magic on the show.
Keep reading this Angela Phipps Bio to learn all about her.
Angela Phipps On TLC’s Bad Hair Day
TLC’s Bad Hair Day premiered on August 24, 2022, and the very first episode featured Angela Phipps helping Jamie, a 35-year-old transwoman from Newton, New Hampshire, who had typical Male Pattern Hair Loss. But her problem was far more complicated than that. From 15-16 years of age, Jamie decided to stay as a “guy” since couldn’t imagine herself as a bald lady.
So, Angela began her treatment by examining Jamie’s scalp to see if she is a candidate for surgery. When confirmed, she then harvested 2860 grafts, and after 8 months of the procedure, Jamie was blessed with a natural feminine curved hairline. Also, she got the full recession region going into the top section, where it merged with the existing hair.
Seeing Angela work her magic is indeed satisfying. But this wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for TLC’s persistence. Yes! Angela initially ignored their calls thinking it was a scam. But as the calls persisted, the doctor eventually realized the show was genuine.
According to TLC, they chose Angela not only for her cutting-edge work but also because she was “a little bit eccentric.” The show wasn’t looking for someone whose persona screamed “doctor.” Rather, they wanted someone the patients could deeply connect to.
Likewise, Angela was eager for the show to connect with the public and talk about the frequent reality of hair loss.
The other two doctors featured on Bad Hair Day were Meena Singh and Isha Lopez.
Angela Phipps Net Worth
Angela Phipps flaunted a net worth of above $1 million in 2022. Reportedly, she made around $82 thousand per annum (excluding payment from the show) then.
The last we checked, she was working at Bosley (located at 4700 Falls of Neuse Road #205 in Raleigh) as a hair transplant surgeon for over 13 years. There, she performed 20-30 hair restoration surgeries per month.
Besides this, Angela also worked as a Medical Advisor to Hair Club.
Furthermore, she was a diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), a member of the American Osteopathic Association, and a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS).
Her caring, enthusiastic, and passionate personality is what differentiates her from all other hair doctors.
Is Angela Phipps Married?
Yes, Angela Phipps is a married woman. She tied the knot with her husband, Kevin Phipps long before they moved to Raleigh, NC, to be closer to family.
Her husband, Kevin (born: January 1970) @kctarheel22 was very supportive of Angela’s career. He never hesitated to listen to her work frustrations. “I told my husband that if I can change one other person’s life — the way they feel about themselves and their quality of life — the way it has changed my dad’s, then that’s all I want to do for the rest of my medical career,” Angela recalled.
As for their kids, the husband-wife shares two daughters named Dani Kaylin (born: April 2009) and Kendall Claire (born: February 2011).
Seeing Angela on TV, her eldest, Dani signed with teenage embarrassment. But eventually, she came around once she saw the impact her mother was making on her patients’ lives.

As a child, Angela once saw him peel all his hair (wig) off his head and scratch his bald scalp. “Daddy! You gotta teach me how to do that,” she exclaimed.
Decades later, with her mother’s encouragement, Angela then decided to further her education and become a doctor.
