Highly Recommended for Struggling Business and Students!
26 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would highly recommend using this show as a teaching tool for students who plan to enter the highly competitive field of hairstyling. Tabatha Coffey deserves an Australian medal for her services. Not only is she frank but she's candid, truthful, and doesn't hold back. She's a reality check for a lot of salons. I was watching her in the New Jersey and Long Island salons. She grows on you after awhile. In the beginning, she's hard and rough with the struggling salons. She notices their flaws and doesn't mind telling them. What I found shocking was that this Australian lives in New Jersey and her salon is in Ridgewood, New Jersey. I would never have imagined her as suburbanite. She reminds me more of the East Village in New York City. Maybe that's why she's so tough but not all of it, New Jersey can harden the soul but this business can break the toughest as well. I would recommend this series to cosmetology teachers and students as a must-watch event for classroom discussion.
