What made Tabatha Coffey want to toss her cookies?

on Oct 9, 20080

It was very helpful to have a professional therapist there and the entire salon staff seemed lightened by the experience.

While the staff marketed the salon, I wanted some alone time with Candolyn. She really seemed to regain some focus and realized that she needed to delegate and take charge of herself and her business. Convincing her to paint the hideous mural was huge, and although she struggled to do it, I was happy that she led her staff and started to take control of her life and her salon. The experience really brought the salon closer together. They bonded as a team, and started to step up. I knew Shushan would be a great support and mentor to younger members of the staff, particularly Wendy and Sheri. I knew she would help guide and teach them, and take some pressure off Candolyn.

I was proud of Candolyn for putting Janice on probation, and for showing her staff she wasn't going to be a victim anymore.

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.

Ms. Coffey, I'm a 14 year old girl with dreams of becoming a hairstylist. Everytime this show is on I just sit there and watch you, I love this show it's one of the FEW things I like on TV (I don't really like TV). I love salons and Tabatha and I wish this were on 24/7 instead of the other dumb shows! :) p.s if anyone is interested in hiring a 14 year old girl with a talent and passion for coloring and cutting hair, visit my hair blog, peruvianbarbie.blogspot dot com ;)

I am not a fan of reality TV shows, but I have to admit, I love watching you as you take over various salons. At first, I was inclined to agree with some of the people who called you a "bitch" but after watching a few episodes, I can see that indeed, you know your business and "tell it like it is." And, you make a lot of sense in doing so. I find myself agreeing with many of your comments: like..."find your 'balls' and "man up"... Because, that's life!! And that is why you are successful. I'm an older viewer, who works in the music and planning industry for a non-profit organization. I think what you tell these salon owners and hairdressers is what is true in reality for everything you do in life. Now, I find myself telling people who work with me....to "get the balls and do it right and "man up." I like that!! I'll keep watching....thanks Tabatha

Please, please, please recommend a stylist in the chicago area that is just like you. I love how you can tell the person what is wrong & how she should be wearing her hair. That is exactly what I'm looking for & can't find on my own.

Tabatha, I live in Southern Maine and there are many, many stay at home moms here that don't do anything for themselves because they can't or don't want to leave their children. I really want to open my own Salon that has childcare so that we can have mommy days and cater to the stay at home moms so they can feel great again. Do you think this concept is a good idea?

I just recently started watching your show. Whoa! Who would have thought one should expect good service when going to a salon!!! You have really changed my mind about what to expect from my hair stylist. I would love for you to come to her shop. She could really use alot of your wise ideas. She constantly complains about low business, but then tells me to go to another salon for a service she did not want to give me. Then she can't seem to stay with me-she gets busy answering the phone or talking to somebody else. I once left there with my hair half cut in the back because she was not paying attention! She really needs your help! Keep on dishing out the truth!

I love your show even though i am not a stylist. I have a friends who has a salon that is in desperate need of a make over. Her shop use to do about 400 in business even in the area the shop is located. Her shop is located on the outskrits of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The location is bad at best, there is little in form of walk-ins and she has not much as in staff. from what i have seen she has little business.

The bulk of her business use to come from her tanning beds, the owner of the building she rents from opened his on tanning bed shop that cut her business by a ton. If she doesn't do something her shop will go under.

Can you help, this would be a major task for you or anyone.

Hello Tabatha, I love your show! I know, so cliche, but what can I say? I do?!?!?!I am not a stylist, but as a customer, your show has opened my eyes to things I deserve to expect from my salon and stylist. I deserve good customer service from the receptionist. I deserve professionalism from all the staff. I deserve a clean salon. I deserve to not walk out w/color all over my face. I deserve to have a clean bathroom dammit! I can go on, but you understand my point. Thank you for setting the standards for me to look for and expect as a customer from my salon. ROCK ON GIRL! It's unfortunate that some people just cannot hear the truth and resort to personal attacks on you... One more thing, as an African-American, I really appreciated and enjoyed your episode on Eclectic, it showed how diverse you can be. One more time. I LOVE YOUR SHOW!

Ms. Coffey,

I have watched just a few episodes of your show and must say that you are amazing. I am in the medical field, which on the surface does not appear to have much in common, but in fact a clinic and a hair salon have much in common. My old clinic was a symphony of dysfunction. You have your experts (docs, nurses, stylists, colorists) people looking for help (patients, clients) and a need to impart solid, impartial and expert information (healthcare and haircare). The person coming in for help is in a position to hand over trust at a very vulnerable time.

I recognized things that I needed to change about myself and the staff. Unfortunately my boss did not see any need to change (he is much like the lady from Brownes & Co.) So I am moving on! I have looked to you for tips on management style and organization as I start my own clinic. Keep up the great work, you are a pleasure to watch!

Hello Tabatha, I have been in retail management and merchandising for several years. I really enjoy your show, and the way you handle people. I have been told that I am "brutally blunt". But when things are chaos, sometimes it is necessary. I really enjoy watching your management style! I think this is a great show for everyone!! It builds confidence, and shows how to take charge to get a job done!! Thank you, and keep up the good work!! Jenifer Indiana

We look hard for your episodes here n Oz. Find I have to download them most of the time. Seems pay TV does not broadcast them anymore.

Anyway - it's great to see common sense mixed with business acumen delivered with style; (some may even say served cold..).

Great show, my wife is a hairdresser here in Nambour Sunshine Coast - and really gets into it; as do the three kids.

Keep up the good work - and do't loose that fabulous style and delivery..

Oh - and I don't need help- unless your skills cover recalcitrant kids.. :-)

Cheers - Lyndon..

Tabatha I watch your show all the time. My husband has a Barber business the shop has been around since 1955. The founder sold the business to my husband...Douglas M. Artis, Douglas has been the owner since 2004. Since then the business has really been a strugle to keep. He really needs a make over. I have been trying to do a make over with a area connected to turn this into a salon. I watch your show all the time and try to encourage him to do the same. The business really needs some help. By the way, I love your up front straight talk. Doug really needs some of that! The last show where the owner of "Bang" changed the colors after you did your make over should have been slapped. From a nice soft "yellow" to "hot pink", what was he thinking?

Hi Tabatha! I work in a salon that has amazing potential but just as many problems. It is owned by 4 men this is their second salon, the first is amazing and the most successful well known salon in our area. Opening the second drama! First one of the owners was married to a colorist in the first children and all. Started sleeping with on of the girls in salon 2 left wife caused major problems between 2 salons. He thinks he is living in a video and brings it to all of us partying , lying, driving a rented Bentley while we had our water machine repoed! he has cheated on the girl so many times gets caught it all unfolds in the salon! We r dragged into this mess constantly and clients know and we r losing them! He has let the place go to crap and we r the most expensive salon in our area (jersey).We just got about 10 new employees he hired from a haircuttery type place and that’s a challenge! The girls r great but how do we make our clients believe we r this high end salon living up to salon 1 reputation when we r nothing of their caliber. Our manager is about 102 and constantly drunk! It drives us all crazy and we get nothing accomplished. So much more.. Please help us!!!

Um, ya,,,,,,,whatever the case, great idea, and trying to help people keep jobs in this economy is honorable of you!! Anyhow, just wanted to say your show is AWE-SOME!

Hello Tabatha! I love your show! As a stylist of 13 years I know how important it is to have the passion for hair when you are in this field. Hair is my passion and I am currently employed in a small hair salon in Binghamton, NY; Hair-Ez Salon. I am the only stylist employed, and we have 1 booth renter as well(although we are set up for 4 stylists). I love this salon and work very hard to keep it clean and beautiful. My boss and I get along beautifully which makes it a very comfortable work atmosphere. Our problem is that we just do not have a full schedule every day and not enough capital to invest in advertising. I would love to have the opportunity to meet you and learn some valuable tips from you if that is possible. This industry is ever changing and I am ready and willing to learn, and you are the best at what you do, which is why you (and your show) are so successful. Any advice? Thanks!

Hi Tabetha I just wanted to let you know how much I love your show. I love how much Pride you take in your job and show other people how they should as well. I am curious though for the salons that do not follow through with their end after you have worked so hard do you send them the bill for everything. I sure would because you really did not have to choose them, however there are some of the salons that it looks like they are staying on the right track. Will you be doing a Where are they now episode? I wish you the Best of Luck with this New Season and I hope there are Many more seasons in your Future, Beacause you are Great!!!

Being a hairdresser/manager/instructor in the beauty business going on 37 years, I was naturally drawn to your show. What I saw the first time, cracked me up. I am almost embarrassed to know that these people all went through beauty school. I think that is maybe where you should start Tabatha. I can tell by watching you, your ethics about cleanliness in the salon is very important as it should be in ALL salons. I also have a "thing" about cleaning at a salon. There is no excuse for how some of the stylists keep their station. Just because some of them rent their booths, does not mean they can keep it however they want. That is a reflection of the salon owner. One of my favorite lines when I was in the salon managing or teaching is "YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU PROJECT." So, if you want to make the big bucks in hairstyling, you not only have to market the salon, you have to market yourself in the way you present your total image. The ultimate success is making your client happy enough to return to your salon and bring all her friends. Trust me, if she isn't happy, she's going to go home and call them all and tell them NOT to go there. Women have a way you know..Kudos Tabatha..Keep up the good work!!

Tabetha, we need help. I am writing you because the Salon I work in has been the top salon in our area for many years. Now it is a the bottom of the list. I am a Professional Educator and I travel teaching color and product knowledge, and see wonderful salons. The owner has let things go and the owners son has junked the salon from one end to the other. We have a great clientel, but we are losing them due to the salon being such a mess. I am considering leaving because of this. The doors are not opened till 11:00 or 12:00 everyday, the phone is not answered due to the owners son living in the salon. The salon is falling apart and is only about 7 years old. I want to see this salon on top once again. I left for awhile and returned, we are like family, we work well together, but I can only do so much myself. I really get upset when the State Board comes in and gives the salon a passing score! When a new client walks in the front door, the see a big mess, boy what a first impression, I am embarrased for new client and current clients to see this. My suggestions seem to go in one ear and out the other with no response. I am a Professional and want to work in a Professional Looking Salon, not a salvage shop!!!!!

Tabitha, 1st I would like to start by saying I was entranced by your skill and no nonsense attitude on Shear Genius and on your ow show Tabitha's Salon Take Over. Being a military spouse I am constantly on the move and finding a stylist who is of a high caliber as well as affordable has been quite a challenge. I was hoping you might have some advice on what to look for as well as a list of essential questions for me to ask to make a truly informed and succesful decision on a stylist in the future. Any help would be emensly apreciated. Thank You Susan Tuscon AZ

HELP! HELP! HELP! How do apply for your show? I watch your show all the time and I think you are the best and I know the perfect salon that can benefit from a Tabitha takeover, I've been going to this salon off and on for the past 3 years and its just in a total disarray that it's screaming for you to come in to help them. I know the owner of the shop personnally and I think it's a shame that her salon is the way it is because she is the nicest lady I have ever met. Her salon is in a need of a makeover so bad that when you go into the bathroom you are scared you are going to fall through the floor,cause there is a giant hole in the middle of the bathroom floor, she tries but times have been hard for her, she has stylist leaving out the door so much that everytime I go there it's always someone new there. Can you please find it in your heart to come to Chicago and do a makeover for the best lady I know it would mean so much to her and her clients and even the neighbohood cause she does so much for the kids by educating them so come on Tabitha give Chicago a makeover i promise this will be one for your record books. thanks so much Charlene.The name of the salon is Hair Icons.

Tabetha I have watched several of your shows,kudos to you,I have been a Hairdresser for 30years,,,I have had five salons,two in Calif.and three in the mid-west...I can't belive how dirty both the salons and stylest are,,,,I wish I could join you on your travels,,,if you get to the D.C. area I would love to meet you....I became a hairdresser after being an aero-space testing engineer.....and I have learned that hairdressing is an engineering problem,,,I also was a Insurence sales man,and have learned communicating,with the client and finding out what they don't want is more important than what they do want.I took an unique approach, even before I touch a comb to the hair,I have client stand still and look at the body mechanics, and feel the shape of the head ,see which area has more hair and swirls,,,ect...also most hairdressers don't know how to sell,and make the client feel like there with a pro.I could go on but you already know how it works....I quit working due to an accident,but I love the business....thanks for hopefully reading my input...sincerly,Vincent D Jovino

Hey Tabetha, I love what you do and i really need advice right now. I own small shop that I absolutely love and it's totally different than any other shop in our town, it's more upscale, but i can't seem to grab more attention to it without spending tons of money for advertisement and even that hasen't worked just b/c nobody is making money and us as stylist just got hit hard starting at the end of the summer with everybody being broke. We're not a high dollar salon we just give you the atmosphere for more relaxing enviroment. Any advice to keep us going I know we can make it and all of our clientel is by word of mouth but there is a salon on every corner of our town it's rediculous.

I didnt know where to post this so I am going to post it here and if someone can help me please do and fast! I love the your show. I actually would love for the Tabitha and the show to take over my salon. The person that runs my salon does not know how to run a salon. she makes her clients wait for her all the time we have has several of her clients either go to another stylist or they leave and we never see them again. The salon is not set up like it should be we have products spread out through the salon and no one knows whats for sale and whats not for sale. Please help! We are going to lose the salon if we don't do something soon! Thank You for your time! Tami

How in the world do you apply for this show? I've been searching for months ways to apply-how do they select salons for it? My salon is in complete disarray. The owners are wonderful, but they are stylists and are completely oblivious to the problems that are bringing down their business. The management is terrible-our manager is extremely moody, irritable, biased, judgmental and thinks everybody is out to get her. She doesn't realize that by treating people like they're going to screw you over is what makes them want to screw you over. The salon itself has good bones, but needs some fixing up as well. It's kind of a hodge-podge of styles and needs a cohesive concept to make it really elegant and to make it look like the kind of place where people would expect to pay what we charge. The owners have several businesses, only one of which is doing well. I think a few of their businesses are actually up for sale, and the lease on my salon is up next year. If it doesn't improve, they will probably just let it go when it could be made into such a great, profitable business. It's such a shame that one person can completely tear down a series of businesses, but that's exactly what's happening and it's really sad to see because the owners deserve to make money for all of their hard work.

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.

Sincerely, Minnie Webb minnie@webbmarketinggroup.com

Tabatha,

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!!!!

Hi Tabitha,

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!!!!

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 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!!!

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

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.

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!

Hi Tabitha!

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-

Kimberley Elder
