Why doesnt Tabatha offer to color and style Mitt Romneys hair? Woudnt the publcity alone compensate for her fee and time. The mans hair is a disaster.
Tabetha I need help. I need to find a great salon where the beauticians know what they are doing. My hair style hasn't changed in years and I need a new cut, style, and color. However, I don't know what would look good on me. So I need a beautician that can look at me and tell what will look the best for my face. Do you know of any great beauticians or salons around Richmond Virginia that can do this. I want to surprise my husband before he comes home From Iraq in may. Thank you for your help.
I would LOVE some help with my salon, im like one of the salon owners who has no gutz! I let a stylist lie to me saying another salon was hunting her down and she would leave if i didn't pay her 60% so i gave in ... ended up meeting the owner of the salon who said none of it ever happened!
I have ten girls working for me I don't do hair or nails but my salon is quite close to closing due to I pay them way to much and as soon as i threaten to lower they all theaten to quit!
Hi - my name is Gina and have been a stylist/colorist working for 3 years. I have a good understanding of color and have had training in Paul Mitchell and Framisi. Most of my clients get "basic" color/hi/lo-lights. Just recently, a 16 year old client of mine was interested in a trendy cut which I gave her and look great was happy with but would like to add deep violet hi-lights to really give the cut some dimension. I did that - she seemed happy, I was not completely satisfied. I also recommended a color preserve maintenance. I thought hi-lights were too subtle and would have liked to see some stronger color. Without sounding insecure to my client, I would like to follow-up - fadage, cut, return for more. If she wasn't satisfied, how can I offer "my" additional services, again without sounding like an insecure/unprofessn'al?! Thanks
My name is Stephanie Flanagan. I work in a salon in Annapolis Maryland that is in desperate need of help. I don't even know where to begin. We have no color ( we are a color salon) we can't keep products in for our clients. Our boss refuses to face the facts that there are major problems in this salon ( and refuses to order no more than 3 of everything, including color!) she took over 2 yrs ago. Please help us! Our clients are leaving us and going to other salons! We need your help. How do we get you to come here?
Hey Tabatha, I am writing to you today because BOTH my partner and I are in desperate need of a make-over!! We have been with our current hairdresser for over 3 years, but for some reason the creativity is not there. We are looking for someone such as your self who can take us from "drab" to "fab"!! (just a notation: we are not U.G.L.Y.)
I'm sure that you receive these emails ALL THE TIME....should you choose to except this mission, you WILL see that we are not kidding!!We can send photos, or video, whatever you need, but PLEEEASSEEE help these two 40 sumthin's feel better about their appearances! WE love you and we'll keep tuning in on BRAVO.
Warm Regards, Jil
You rock! I would love you to come to us and kick some but into gear! You never know what to expect.
Tabetha looking for a great salon in Las Vegas NV. Not sure what style would look good on me so,I stay the same. I loved the guy in New York who cut the hair dry. Hope to get a reply. Thanks
Tabatha, YOU ROCK! You are inspiring to all people that want to be the best they can be - and if they don't want it bad enough, you can get right to the point and tell them to work hard for your dream and CRAP or get off the pot. I wish you shows were on in the evenings, I just ran across your shows today because I work for a school district as the Exec. Asst. to the Supt. and we are on spring break. You and Judge Judy Scheindling are great examples of strong, professional, successful women! Hope your show's schedule gets some evening air time for all of us working women to view. Not everyone has a DVR, but I will some day. Keep up the fantastic shows! LOVE THEM!
Tabatha, Have you ever considered coming to the S.F. Bay area? The salon where I have my hair styled is in desperate need of a makeover. The stylists are great but the salon needs to be brought into the 2000's. Is it appropriate to suggest to the owner that she needs to invest in her business. She is not a stylist and inherited the salon from her husband. I love the people there and want them all to succeed! Can you help?
I cant seem to find a hairdresser that works well with fine hair,I am a beatician by trade but i work in a nursing home,not much room for updating my styling techniqes,could you recomend a Salon for me to go to,I live in Fresh Meadows Queens N.Y thanks Sherry

I got to meet Tabatha in Chicago today on Halsted street. She was filming at the Chicago Male Salon here in Chicago on Halsted. This salon is gorgeous inside with a great staff -- but makes no money because it caters only to upscale gay men. In this economy, it's been struggling since opening. So, that's an interesting twist on some of the places Tabatha has helped.
She's also done an episode at Orbit salon here in Chicago --- Orbit was a salon in need of a physical and staffing revamp. Looks like she finished that one and then moved on to Chicago Male.
I got to talk to Tabatha for a moment. Literally, I was walking down the street and saw her with the film crew. They were setting up a shot where she walks towards the camera talking. She was SO NICE TO ME. Very, very kind --- I told her it was great to have her in Chicago and it was nice to see her, and she said it was nice to see me too...and I told her to whip everyone into shape here and she said she would.
She was so warm and friendly, and GORGEOUS in person. Taller than me (I'm 5'8"), with that pretty, shock blonde hair...she looked incredible.
And so, so kind and nice. I know I am repeating myself, but usually famous people just sort of smile or don't say anything back, but she seemed really genuinely nice and happy to say hello.
hi my names venicia and im half black and half mexican; so it goes without saying that i have reallt thick untaimable hair. ive been desperately trying 2 find a hairdresser that can work with my hair, but thats proved fruitless. so far the only hairdressers iv manage to find are ones that end um destroying my hair with relaxers. i like my hair to feel light and not greaased down. i usually go in for a press and curl and a relaxer. is there anybody... and i mean absolutely anybody that you could recommend in the los angeles, ca area. im desperately seeking help.
Tabatha you are the Bomb! You are an inspiration for all I love you and your show, and I need to know if your coming back to Los Angeles area. I just started working at this little salon in Northridge Ca. This woman Jacqualine has been in this same salon for 20 years. She told me that she has cancer and is in need of someone to come in and help her with her salon. I would love to come in and help because I have a lot of energy and a lot of experience, but the salon needs help. It needs a make-over inside and out!!!! It has so much potential and she deserves so much respect and I would love to do this for her. I just met the lady, and I want to help her and maybe one day take it over myself as we dicussed, but I need to help her save the salon and get all of the booths filled for her. I do have some ideas, I would love to have a Tabatha make-over from the ground up, in side out. THANK YOU SINCERELY TRANESSA OLIVER (818) 488- 1164
Tabatha I'm in the process of opening a new Salon do you have any pointers on the Do's and Don'ts of the Business?
I just love you Tabitha. I'm not a hair stylist but I worked as a receptionist in a salon of 18 stylists for several years and loved every day of it. I'm going into shear withdrawel and I would love to know when your next season is going to start and I'm praying there is another season of your show. How can we find out when it starts if there is another season?
I hope you can S.O.S! The owners of our salon/spa have there minds elsewhere. This family seems to always have a reason for incompetence. You are my only saving grace. If you get a moment, please advice.
Sincerely, Van http://www.christiessalonanddayspa.com/
Hello Tabatha, I watched your show faithfully every week. I thought it was great. There is a desparate nees for more people to do what you do. I would love to have your job. Or at least be your protege' I've only been a hair stylist for a short time, however the man I was trained under was veery intense and thorough. He was a hard man to work for but i learned great deal from him through one means or another. I know exactly what you mean when you enter a salon and take a look around the different things a person would take notice of. So what do you say need some help?
Well!! Hello Tabitha..My name in Nadine Branch, Two things. 1. I was told months and months ago "Nadine, you have got to see this lady name "Tabitha". I said.. oh I really don't have time because I need to just focus on rewriting the script in our industry! I must say, I like the fact that someone else understands the "ETIQUETTE" of it ALL....I had training salons. I wanted to make sure the stylists understood the business from the front door to the restrooms. It all represents YOU. I have been in the business now for 29yrs and I still love it all. Tabitha I have worked under the ownership of an Asian, Middle Eastern, White Italian, Spanish and Black owners. Boy!! and for me, they ALL were missing the leadership. They seemed to think that came with the LEASE.I'm in the OC and I'm a Black woman. My clients want me to meet you. Now that I finally saw your site. I think you would really like what I could bring to the table, "Change with a twist". I would like to walk side by side and help rewrite the script in the BLACK SALONS. I think I have the veral skills, manners, knowledge and training that would light your eyes up. 2. The lady that is Bi-racial,Venicia, in the LA. area. I can help her with her hair!! I have passion in that area of hair. I would love to get my DVD to you or a package, My Bio....Hope I her back for you and if not, I hope you here about me soon. Keep up the professionalism. Believe me, stylist need to know, It's not one race, it's not high end verse low end salons, it's all, that need to rise the bar.....I'm on facebook too
I absolutley love watching you. I wish I could find a stylist that knew how to do hair like you do! How do I go about finding a good stylist? I have had friends refer me over and over again, but none of them seem to know how to cut my fine hair without leaving it a mess. I am in Las Vegas, and can't afford to pay a fortune, but I'm willing to pay for someone who knows what they are doing, Please Help!!!
Tabetha, I am a hairstylist in Royal Oak, MI. and I just started working at a very unique salon not too long ago. It is in a great neighborhood,but here's the thing people who live around here don't know we are here. We've been here for 20yrs. We have great advetizing in the paper and coupons in the mail but few customers. This is not because our services are poor, as matter of fact we have talented stylists who care about the customer. We all agree that we really need your help to bring some life and pazaz to attract Everyone. We provide nails, hair, tanning and makeup.It's pretty much a one stop get it all done place. Any advise? Sunny
Love the show, but why do these solon owners find it necessary to have so many employees? In my opinion the best service is when I am treated personally by one person from beginning to end, not shipped off from one person for a cute and to the next for a color.
Tabatha, As a Salon owner I LOVE your show. I am looking forward to a new season. I have owned my own Salon for 10 years, I was not a hair stylist, but a nail tech for 8 of those years. I am now in Beauty School with about 2 months left until I graduate. I am going to be joining my staff of 11 women, 5 hair dressers, 2 nail techs, 2 estheticians, and 2 massage therapist, as soon as I am done with school. I am 61 years old and have learned and implemented so much from your show. I would like to think a big part of my motivation for returning to school was from you and your show. THANK YOU so much.... Eddie Johnson Mr. Eddie's Salon McMinnville Or.
So I am not going to say I am a huge fan of your show in fact I have only for the first time seen your show today. I love it! In fact ur show actually scares the crap out of me. I am currently in school and I have about 9 to about 10 months left. My school unfortunately in a joke. We never have color, product, or even towels. We make due with what we can and learn as much as possible. I definitely feel very denied in education at times but watching your show for the first time today even puts a bit more fear in me. I have my days where I know what I am doing and no one get in my way and there are days where I feel like a helpless puppy and wonder if I am even able to apply the skills I am aquiring. Any tips or advice?
Hi Tabetha, today was the fisrst time for me to watch your show and I was blown away. It was amazing. I loved it, I loved it, and I loved it. I also would love to meet you someday. Actually you are the only famous person that I would die to meet. Your are fantastic and fabulous. Trust me, I'm not usually impressed by anybody but I love what you do. I'm a hairstylist, aesthetician and massage therapist. I love this industry so much and I want to be successful at it. I started my career at supercuts but I'm ready to move up. I want to apprentice at great salon. Can u help? By the way I live in NY City. Love you and thank you for your help. Mimi
oh my god! u r so good! this is taiwan. we have your show on discovery taveling and living channel. this is good! u r amazing! i love u! u r so cool! i want to have a haircut like yours!
I would like a response to one question which I cannot find a definitive answer to even on the Web. Just how much should we tip a stylist? I've read 10%, 15%, 20 and 25% percent, $20 dollars for each hour they've been working on your hair and even 50% in New York City.
I'm very frustrated. I've finally gone back to having my hair colored since the birth of my children. The price for highlights is $150 at one salon. Another salon charged almost $300 for highlights and lowlights. I simply cannont afford to pay these prices and tip another 25% percent on top of it. I'd rather get a great cut and color at a reasonable rate and tip the stylist the 25%. And why is it so hard to find one that can cut AND color?
Hi Tabatha! I am opening a salon soon and would like to know your best advice for getting started. What's the best marketing to start with. I am a stylist but just moved to a new state and I don't have a clientel. I plan to rent my chairs out in my new salon. There will be 5 possibly 7. Any info would be great! Nicole Oklahoma city, Oklahoma
I'm Italian and I was in L.A. for vacation and I have seen the Tabata Show in Bravo TV.......she is FANTASTIC !!!!! I want the Tabata Show in Italy please.....!!!
OMG I love this show! Please when is the new season starting? Put the show back on Bravo we want to see it! Take out all this other dumb shows you (BRAVO) have going on and put on Tabatha's show! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
Amazing work Tabatha! OK, what gives, when is the next season starting. I see no mention on the Bravo site...surely there is going to be a 2nd season. So tell us WHEN! Thanks for all that you do.
I love your work and your show! I am 22 years old and have just signed a lease for a location in Hollywood for my salon. I am working a full time job to pay the rent of the salon and I am soon hoping to find commission hairstylists that would like to work with me and eventually I will be able to quit my full time job in about a year once my business stabilizes. My parents support me so much and are working so hard as well to help me pay the lease and are helping me do the work to get the salon together to help lift my business off the gound.
I would love your input on how to make my salon successful so I can one day take care of my parents the way they have taken care of me.
I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you one day!
All The Best-
Tabitha, First of all, I want to say that I think that you are great!!! I have never taken the time to watch your show as I have today. I have spent quite a bit of time around salons, as I know many salon owners. (Some could even possibly benefit from your expertise. However, that is not my reason for this comment.)
My comment is regarding Images Salon: Oyster Bay. I am sure that there are MANY reasons why people reach out to you...to get help, to get a salon makeover, to get publicity (ANY PUBLICITY!). As for Josephine, I believe that she was more concerned with the makeover than the learning experience. It seemed ALL about HER!!! Based upon the footage, she had a very nonchalant attitude toward being a true stakeholder in the changes necessary for success at her OWN salon. However, "I" thank you for helping to educate the staff. Despite a few obstacles, they seemed able to see your heart in what you did. You rock!
Tabitha, I love, love, love, your show. I have been working in a salon for 7 years. We have recently moved to a new location and EVERYTHING has gone south. I would really love to apply to be on the show, but don't know how. We are in desperate need!! The staff and owner have lost all of their motivation and drive. I love being a hair stylist and I know with your help anything is possible. Any information would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks Lisa A.
Hi Tabatha: I own a salon in Houston TX. On one episode one of the salon owners changed out all of his salon hair dryers for ones that extend from the ceiling and re-coil after use. I have searched the internet for them but to no avail. Can you help me identify them and possibly locate them? I think you are an amazing asset to the hair industry. Keep up the good work. Payotn
I hope you have another season. Last one was great (every one!) Your show is what i needed to see my own potential. I have worked 8 yrs in a salon that is dated!! Owner seems oblivious to the fact that it needs some TLC. Chairs are split, old decor, and dusty!! Can't clean cause the wood is rough. I've tried. I'm embarrassed and have had clients that want to leave, disgusted with how dirty it looks and is. I've opted to go on my own and eliminate all I hate about where I work now. As you know, We spend more time at work than at home these days and to have to LIVE in a place that makes you feel blah, and I have work extra hard to put it aside and do the best I can. I hope the crisp new enviornment will help my customers feel better too. You can be very good at your work, but if the place is glooming, then its not what they deserve. If only the owners would realize, they own it, run it, & take care of it. How do all these shops pass state inspection? Ours comes every year! I guess maybe they're blind. Thanks for bringing a very big problem to the beauty industries attention. Your doing an awesome job, keep it up and hope to see you another season. Go Get Em Tabitha!!!
please tell everyone when you can bring tabatha back to take over salon owners. I love it sooo much and I learn a lot from her. I will be a future hair dresser and let me know when you send me this comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Tabatha, I love you and your show last season I hope you have another one because I was so hooked to it everytime it came on I didn't want to leave and do nothing till it was over or went on commercial... you taught me a whole lot I've been doing hair since I was 16 and really loving and admiring it, but now I'm actually going into it for a profession, I'm in school at Rapeals Beauty School in Alliance, Ohio and I have really loved it even more, and when I graduate in December I will be working with an Aunt, learning the business and how she manages it and be a stylist right now were just getting started and the space where were going to do style our clients hair at is really small because we have a hair store and a child care hooked up all in one and just the other day I walked into our Salon and hated it because It just doesn't look or feel like one, the colors suck the equipment suck everything about it sucks I wish you could come here but we can't even afford you right now, I know, lol.. But I was wondering what colors should I go with for a small, carpeted room that we have I just feel so cluttered because were in a small place for the time being... (PLEASE HELP US) I haven't became the manager yet because I'm waiting to graduate from school, but she's my manager for now, and plans in the future to give it to me, if it's written in Gods plans for my life... But My question to you is what colors should I go with that will make it inviting to our clients, spacious, classy, but colorful because we have no idea where to start or do at this moment!!!!!
I love your show. My favorite episode is #4 when you take Oyster Bay to Manhattan. What I loved the most was watching one of the stylist at the Manhattan salon cut hair, it was out of this world. What salon was that?
I have to totally agree with Nadine Branch regarding black hair salons. I am a 40ish, black woman who has gone natural (going on three years)because I can not deal with the hours I have to spend in there not to mention the cost for what I call "poor service". If my appointment is at 2 PM and I do not sit in your chair until 3:45 PM; I'm stupid for staying and for coming back. Our salons like to book every client 15-30 minutes apart no matter what service is requested. THAT IS CRAZY!!!! I worked at a caucasian salon as a parttime receptionist and boy did I learn something about scheduling. If you can help our sisters get that together, they will learn that they could make far more money without herding clients in like cattle. If you can work with Nadine, please do. WE WOULD FOREVER BE GRATEFUL!!!!
I love your show!! I think you are great and the fact that you are honest that's what these hair salon's needs to hear. I think sometimes they close their eyes to what they know is wrong and that a change is definitely needed.
But when you come into their salon and call them on what needs to be done, to make their salon run better sometime people don't want to hear the truth.
I don't think you are mean, just very direct which you should be in order for things to change for the better. I hope that they put your show back on showing new eposides, because I definitely will be watching.
I also love your haircut that's off the hook!!!!
Tabatha, Thank you so much! I do not get the Bravo channel. One of my stylist clients taped it for her. I have watched it 3 times and then got on the internet. I Have been in the hair industry for 25 years and will be celebrating my 17th anniversry as a salon owner.I am in the process of taking my business back.Sometimes you go thru burn out and get lax on things, you have inspired me again.Thank you! I am in the process of creating a new employee handbook and implimenting new policies and promotions. I thought I had problems. After watching your show, my salon runs pretty smooth. There is one thing I need to work on personally. I need to grow some balls, I feel like I get taken advantage of because I have a big heart and try to be their friend as well as employer. Thank you again for the inspiration. Are all of your seasons on DVD?? I would love to see all of them.
