Tabatha Coffey is one of our great Aussie exports, hairstylist, salon owner, and American television personality. Her participation as a contestant on the television show, Shear Genius, led to her own television show, Tabatha's Salon Takeover, which airs on the U.S. cable television network, Bravo, and on FOXTEL's pay television network, Arena in Australia.
It is a great relief and refreshing, to hear an Aussie on American Television, actually talking like a real Aussie should. (giv meee yer keeys im takin over)
Coffey has since opened her own salon, Industrie Hair Gurus in Ridgewood, New Jersey. She also styles clients at the Warren-Tricomi salon in West Hollywood. Her approach is transformative, creating a special look for each individual, unlike other stylists who specialize in a certain look. She also works as a platform artist for hair care product company, Joico International. She tours different countries 6-12 times a year doing hair shows for the company, both to showcase her talent and to train other aspiring hairdressers.
Tabatha was asked recently, who has the best hair in Hollywood and who needs an emergency makeover.
"Kim Kardashian has the best hair," "It's lush and its gorgeous. But it's Paris Hilton I would most like to get my hands on. That look just isn't working for her anymore."
How much is too much to pay for a haircut?
Tabatha says "I think there are things that are applicable to every price range, depending on what you're comfortable paying. I think the biggest thing is happiness. And I don't think anyone minds paying for anything as long as they feel that they're getting something that makes them look great, works, lives up to its promise, and makes them really happy. I think a lot of women are dissatisfied with their hair and with the products they're using because they haven't been guided properly and they don't know what they're doing, and they feel like they're paying too much. And it's not because it's necessarily the money, it's just that they're not happy with the outcome."
