So much to learn from how she fixes things.

As opposed to most reality shows that are fostering a culture of contempt, disregard and disgusting behavior; Tabatha is about doing good work in the world.

See drama and resolution in this great TV show.

My students viewed this for a leadership simulation. They loved the episodes and its a great tool to illustrate how to apply management and leadership principles. Thanks BRAVO and Tabatha.

I saw what I really needed to see. She really changed the culture of the Salons. That's great. There were some drama for the show but overall she performed awesome. Need more of her.

Every business owner should see this series. Tabatha is absolutely accurate, fair, straightforward and generous with her willingness to help failing salons. Fun to watch and fascinating how she zeros in on exactly what the problems are. So much to learn from how she fixes things. Priceless advice from a successful businesswoman.

I'm not a hair person. I'm not interested in salons. I'm happy with my barber and I let my hair grow way too long between visits to my barber.

This is not a show that should interest me. I have never been in a salon, and probably never will. The world of high-class hairstyle holds no interest for me.

But, I purchased episodes of this series. This is why: the people in this series were interesting. I've been writing a fiction book with hopes of publishing. I also have been a teacher. What I found interesting in this series was the importance of strong leadership and the skills that go into being a strong leader. So what if it's a salon. It could as easily be a classroom, a restaurant, or a grocery store. The human side of this series is fascinating.

Tabatha is a very strong, no-nonsense leader. She appears cruel at first, but it's clear she has a real heart, including a heart for the workers in the salons. Many of the owners are passive or weak. They do not provide the leadership their staff need. Tabatha trains them in how to be stronger and also works with the individuals to improve them. Though she threatens firings, I didn't see any through the first season (though one person quit). Instead, she works with the staff she is given to get them to improve. As a teacher, that appealed to me. I can't pick my students. I work with the kids that appear in my classroom.

Though the series does make some nods to the artifices of reality TV, it seems less scripted than some other reality TV I've encountered. As I said, the human dimension is what won me over. Tabatha is far less theatrical than hosts of similar shows, so it was far easier to focus on the salons she worked with rather than the host. She almost fades into the background.

I recommend this show to anyone interested in how leadership works.

I purchased this set to show my Cosmetology students what it can be like in the "real" world of our profession. What to do and what not to do. Tabitha tells it like it is!!

I have a hunch this might have been the pilot episode. It was structured a little differently than any other episode I've seen in the series, and Tabatha wore the dress from the title sequence. This was another case of an owner who isn't a stylist and didn't have a lead stylist to make sure essential practices were being followed. Overall there was a pretty good amount of talent in the salon and plenty of business opportunities available, so the outcome looks good. It wasn't the most dramatic episode but I think it's worth watching just to see the slightly less refined approach to the show.

I am a cosmetology instructor, and this series was a great educational tool to use at the end of the senior year! Tabitha reinforced so many professional tips I give my students for salon success!
