The creator and executive producers of Style’s “Jerseylicious” are now taking viewers to the Windy City to follow AJ Johnson, owner of AJ’s of Chicago, and his team of talented yet fiery hair and make-up artists in the new docu-series “Chicagolicious,” premiering Monday, June 11 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and 8 p.m. (CST).

“Jerseylicious has become appointment television for Style's passionate viewers, and with Chicagolicious, we have found an eclectic set of characters, including the beautiful city of Chicago, to deliver a new twist and expand our top performing franchise series,” said Salaam Coleman Smith, President, The Style Network.

AJ’s of Chicago is one of the go-to beauty schools in the Windy City with an eccentric staff and exclusive clientele, including Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Tyra Banks and Iman. Throughout the season, AJ and his staff of super stylists will create amazing looks for red carpet and fasion runway events and face off against rivals while catapulting AJ’s of Chicago to national success.

A multi-platform campaign will kick-off online and on demand in the weeks leading up to the June 11 cable premiere, providing original content and opportunities to get to know the cast.  Launching later this month, the “Chicagolicious” show page on will introduce viewers to the unique team of stylists and feature weekly blogs from the cast, episode recaps and exclusive photos and video. 

In addition, the “How to be ‘Chicagolicious” micro-series will offer fans make-up, hair and fashion tips, including how to create the most dramatic eye, maintain your weave and match your hair to your outfit. For more information, visit Follow the show on Twitter at and
