The straight-talking, perfectly coifed Tabatha Coffey lends her sound advice and styling expertise to help desperate salon owners turn their struggling businesses around in the new Bravo series, “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.”
“Tabatha’s Takeover” will follow Coffey, the charismatic former “Shear Genius” contestant and Australian native, as she visits struggling salons in the Los Angeles and New York areas and literally takes over the establishments to whip them into shape. Coffey brings her no-nonsense approach to the salon owners and stylists, all teetering on the verge of collapse and in dire need of her skilled business direction. With just a week to work her magic, can she put these salons back on their feet or is it time for the shops to put up the closed sign for good?
At first meeting, the owners and stylists find Coffey’s distinct personality and wicked comments jarring; but they soon figure out that in order to be a success in the competitive high-end beauty business, they need to take the savvy and fearless approach that has helped Coffey’s own career flourish.
Shear Genius’ Tabatha is back on Bravo tonight at 10p with Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, but instead of fixing hair she is fixing the salons that fix the hair. The best way to describe it is Kitchen Nightmares in a salon. Just like Kitchen Nightmares this show is fun and touching with little bite to it.
It is great to watch as the salon and the hairdresser go through the changes they need to to keep the salon alive. The first salon is Ten Salon in Long Beach and they desperately need help. Tabatha comes in and she really saves the day. She teaches these hairdressers what they need to get this salon up to status quo. Although she said that not everyone would still have their job after she was done with them, sadly she does not let anyone go. And there was this woman who thought 3″ equaled a inch, for me that is enough reason to fire her. Don’t cut too much off without warning. But even though everyone survived, this show is a must watch. So tune into Bravo tonight and every Thursday at 10p for Tabatha’s Takeover Salon that is a cut above the rest!!!
