"I was disappointed in Nicole not wanting or trying to change for the salon or for Janeen."

on Jan 13, 20100

Janeen is a really good colorist with a solid clientele and a nice salon, she opened the salon with her sister as a business partner and she abandoned Janeen and the salon. This caused Janeen to lose control of her stylists as cutting wasn't her expertise and she felt frustrated and let down.

The salon needed a manager and Janeen hired Nicole to help her with the day-to-day running of the salon. The problem was the staff didn't respect Nicole and Nicole was a lousy manager, and in my opinion the biggest problem in the salon.

With some encouragement Janeen realized that she needed to let go of her anger and resentment toward her sister to help move herself and her business forward and I was very proud of her. The staff really responded to the changes in Janeen and did a great job at the reopening, except for Katie who clearly needed more guidance with her work and her confidence. I was disappointed in Nicole not wanting or trying to change for the salon or for Janeen. I was thrilled when Janeen called me with the news of letting Nicole go, it really showed me the commitment she had to her business and that she was on the right path.

I go to a salon where the beauticians are in view of the customers. I have watched so many do really good cuts (styles) and then after the blow out they take a thinning shears and start chopping at the hair. The style falls completely flat after. I do not understand why they all do this. What are they trying to accomplish? Most people do not have such thick hair that thinning is required. I wish you would address this somewhere in your programs. I think the thinning shears should all be melted down. I hold the shears when my hair is being cut so she does not accidently use them. LOL I am 75 and don't need my hair thinned.

Tabatha,

I am a business graduate student who is in between work. As I was flipping through the channels, I became hooked on your Monday show. I think you have a great eye for business management, and to style a client''s hair to perfection.

Cheers, Pierre / Orlando, Florida

I would love tabatha to come to a small town salon in Kansas, just because we are a small town doesn't mean that we can't have great style. In a small town that is how people pamper themselves. This town really needs Tabatha here!!!!

Your salon take over i have just finished watching was extreamly appealing to me...Im 24 and looking to open my own salon,i'm sure you have heard all this before however I would appreciate suggestions from you. At the moment i like to think i know enough to begin (but a good business woman can always learn more) I'm a beauty therapist however try to refer to myself as a skin care therapist as people seem to this all you do all day is make up and look in the mirror...i wish! ! !

Any suggestions would be fantastic

Kind Regards Maria

Somehow I have managed to see all of your first season shows despite the Foxtel channel your show is broadcast on not promoting it effectively. I think it is a great concept and your in your face attitude is just what is needed for some of the people you have helped. There are times while I watch that I wonder how some of these people manage to get through their day to day lives without the common sense that you show they need to run their businesses.

Looking forward to the next season and more of the same. Maybe you could come home and work your magic on some of the salons in the land of Oz.

Tabatha I love your show and work ethic. I do not own a salon but own a Ford dealership and you inspire me to put in place alot of the processes and procedures you demonstrate on your shows. I see your ideas have the ability to be used in any business environment

Tabatha,

Can't wait for the new season! Opened my salon back in January after having enough in a nightmare salon i worked in across the street. I utilize many of the tips and tricks I learn from your show. Any good tips on the lawsuit?

We are opening a new salon and Dallas - was wondering if it would be interesting to do a show on establishing a salon the right way. The interesting thing about our salon is that it will be owned and opearated by two transsexuals.

Just wondering if there would be any interest.

Hi Tabatha, I am living in Australia and I have been watching you show for a while now and I am love with it. I have a friend that works in the industry and her salon is going under and needs re-vamping. There is alot of things that need fixing and the staff seem to not be so happy working there. The owners have two bussinesses and I think that both of them are struggling. I was wondering if you could please help them not only for making more money but to lift the spirits of the team!!!!!

i watch the show it great and it gives new life to stale salons in which i work in one that needs a visit from Tabatha the owners only concern is how much money and we dont go in debt we can make the customers bring in magazines for our waiting area. the lighting is so poor but we try to keep our customers happy i like your professionalism and attitude to get things turn around in mundane situation

Watched the whole show-SERIOUSLY MY FAV SHOW!!!!! You're such a beautiful, talented, intelligent, quick witted woman. I listen with such intent to everything you say, feels like i know you... Cracks me the F up when you swear... Reminds me of myself.. Everything you say is genuine, that's why i think you're better than most shows out there, you say it like it is...you're right and you know what you're talking about!!. All the best for the future and i hope all your dreams come true. Thanks for bringing back entertainment, you should be very proud of yourself and huge success to come!!! xxxx Lia

Omg tabatha you are amazing mentor...I have been watching you for about 6 months and will use your footage in my staff meetings as you have totally inspired me..I own a small salon in congleton that has hit a recession and have had to downsize my staff to reduce overheads....Always education is my first and foremost never to neglect...Would be fantastic if you ever could mentor a small salon in a competitive small town with your wealth of experience....

I just wanted to thank Tabitha for bringing to light the Oil Spill donation site where you can donate clipped hair and nylons, which you ship down to the gulf, where warehouses are ready and machines in place to create mats and booms to collect oil.

I am coordinating this in my area - very easy to do - no money required - just some leg work -

If you own a salon, a groomer, or have a lot of nylons - read about this non-profit that's been covered by the NYTimes, ABC, Reuters, etc. here: http://www.matteroftrust.org/

Hello Tabitha! Congratulations on having such a successful t.v show, I'm sure its alot of hard work. I, like alot of people, have a salon in mind that would benefit from your expertise! I was previously employed there before I relocated out of the country. This salon is a family ran business by one of the most wonderful families I have had the pleasure of knowing. They are really great to their staff but have a "structural issue", if you know what I mean. The owners both have other jobs and try their best to juggle but the staff inevidably takes advantage of the lack of structure. The girls are all friends to me and respect the salon owners but need to step outside the box. The employees are all long term, been there average of 10 years and I think they're maybe too "comfortable". Please if you can help these great people who have been such a wonderful part of my life....Thank you!

One week ago today on May 6th, 2010, my mother-in-law's salon (Madison Avenue and Day Spa in Ridgecrest, CA) caught fire in the middle of the night. It was a total loss! Thank goodness no one was hurt. The hardest part is that the salon has been under a complete remodel since October 2009 and it was about a week or two from being completed. Currently there were 8 stylists, 2 nail technicians, 2 Estheticians and 4 receptionsists working at the salon. My mother-in-law and owner of the salon and building, Laurie Lerwick, is one of the stylists. My sister-in-law is one of the Estheticians. I am very close to a lot of the girls that work at the salon and we are like family. Since the fire, the girls have had to split up and find stations at other salons in town until the rebuild of Madison Avenue is complete. This had been very hard for all of us! We live in a small town of about 25,000 people, two hours north east of LA and would LOVE any help we could recieve in the rebuilding of Madison Avenue Salon and Day Spa! Laurie is like a second mom to me! I love my family and all the girls that work in the salon. Although I have a degree in Dental Hygiene, I am about to start Cosmotology school myself so that I can be a part of this wonderful salon! Laurie has worked so hard to start and grow this business from the ground up. She is the most loving and generous person I know and I would love to be able to help her get the rebuild of her salon going. If this is something that you are interested in, please contact me. You can view pictures of the burnt salon on my facebook (Nichole May Snodgrass or Madison Avenue). The pictures are open for the public to view. Thank you so much!

Hi Tabatha, Iv just discovered your series and I love it, I own a hair and beauty salon in Sheffield and have told all my staff to watch the show as I am very strict on cleanliness, customer care, training and exellent treatments and now they can see why. Well done from Sarah

Tabitha,

I have a great idea for you. Why don't you go to the Jerseylicious salon, The Gatsby, and clean up those tacky slags!

Between the Oompa-Loompa bronzer and teased hair to God, they really need your expertise.

My husband and I love your show and your business advice is so spot on! Keep up the good work.

I watched the Earth/Moon/Sun episode which really struck home since I live in Western Springs, IL! I walk in the downtown area of WS quite often, and I see the EMS salon quite often. After watching your show, I'm VERY glad I didn't go to this salon before you arrived! YIKES! But now I may consider going to EMS. I wondered why Janeen's sister just left the salon and Janeen? I'm sooooo thrilled Nicole got fired! Why did Janeen hire Nicole to begin with? When I watched this episode, I couldn't help but think that Nicole will have a VERY hard time finding another job; because if she came to my business wanting a job after seeing her on Takedown, there's NO WAY I'd hire Nicole just by seeing her appauling acts of unprofessionalism! You did a great job handling her snooty/immature ways on the show. I can't imagine her in person.

Dear Tabatha, I am 13 years old and i am a big fan of your(: I live in Naples, Florida and The Cozmo Beauty School is in desperate need of you. They need to things in particular...(1) They need to know how to deal with clients. (2) They also need to learn respect for each other. I thought you could whip then into shape:D My mother goes to the school and every night she comes home with these stories saying "These people make fun of these people because of this" and I mean gosh people can you get ridiculous?? Anyways, My mom needs you too, She is good at what she does but if she meets you she could be extraordinary,Just like you

Hi Tabatha. I love, love, love your show. Each episode is a wonderful learning experience. I am an independent contracted Esthetician with a skin care business in a hair salon in Los Angeles. I am finally moving into this century and am currently looking to put all my client, product, business info etc. onto my computer. Is there a computer software specific to skincare that you recommend?

Thank you in advance! Maria

In viewing the Bravo Tv Schedule for the next two weeks, sadly there are no reruns of your show. Absolutely enchanted with your show and have been trying to see all of them. Is there going to be a season 3? I hope so. I think you have a lot of talent, guts and courage. Sharp tongue, sharper scissors and a razor wit.

Hi Tabatha, The Hair Kingdom needs you. The shop is located in Roxbury Massachusetts, a neighborhood of Boston. Mamie O'Neal, the salon owner, is a wonderful stylilst and I love how she cuts, dyes and cares for my hair. But, she needs help. This is a neighborhood salon with a pretty steady clientel. The salon needs upgrading and she needs additonal staff that work more than a couple of days a week. She cannot expand or upgrade her business without better organization. I told her I was going to put her name in hoping that you would make a visit. Yes, I could patronize another salon, as a customer, but I love the service that I get from Mamie. I sure hope that you will help her.

Sincerely - Sandra

Hi Tabatha, first let me say... you rock! Love your show, however, do you ever help in the New Orleans area? I have a brand new shop, almost a year old. Struggling, to say the least. I really want to survive in this business. My core crew is awesome, even though it took a lot of bad apples to get there. Honestly, I have tried everything to get clients in the door. I just can't make ends meet. Any suggestions??? I would dearly appreciate anything you can offer me. It would take a book to fill you in. I'm willing if your willing. Don't know if its still just the economy after hurricane Katrina or what. Thanks so much, Lori from Kenner, Louisiana

GOBSMACKED INDEED. . . ABSOLUTELY enchanted with this show. Tabatha is an amazing woman with not only a sharp set of scissors, but a sharp tongue and a sharper wit. What an incredible show this is. How she manages not to slap some of those peoples looks right off their faces is way beyond my sense of propriety. And the salon renovations are brilliant. I find myself hoping for some behind the scenes documentary shows on the actual reality of making over those salons. I believe it would be better/more real than many of those shows out there already . . . a spin-off in the making.

This episode brought me to tears. Janeen was such a nice person and i felt that she seemed like a great colorist. Im glad some of the stylist got a kick in the butt when tabatha came. I was also overjoyed when the manager got fired. thank god!!!

Hello Tabatha,

I feel that you may be the only one to help my family's Salon stay afloat...My Parents and my sister currently own Uniquely Senise Hair and Nail Salon. They hve been open for around 4+ years and still have not cleared the red zone. They have 3 employees, and several booth renters. Basically, they are braking even each month and have not made a dime in a very long time. My parents are very stubborn and closeminded, and are not open to new ideas especially from their youngest(me, 31) Anyway, I hope that you will actually read this post, and possibly contact me. I hope you can help save them. I would hate to see their business fold and force then to declare bankrupcy. Thanks for your time Tabatha.....

Dear Tabatha, We love your show and we're writing for some advice. Yesterday my daughter (she's 18) went to a salon to get her hair colored and it went bad. Really bad. She called me an hour into the appointment crying, when I arrived her scap was still burning from the product used. We needed to see a dr and her hair is so brittle it is breaking off. Adding to the drama is we went to this salon for many years, no incident like this has happened, so we really do not know who to trust!!!!!!! We really need some help to find a place (once cleared by the dr) to get her hair back in good shape. We live in a suburb of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Do you have a salon you could refer??????? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Concerned Mom - sad and hurt daugher

Hi tabitha my name is maryann cohen i think your show is awesome. I had worked in the casinos in atlantic city for 22 years and i know about professionalism and assisting customers. It is so unbelieveable how people are not so professional in the salons u have visited and some of their attitude towards u was awfull. It so disgusting how they keep their salons all the dirt and dust that accumlates everywhere. signed your fan, maryann cohen

Just a huge thank you for keeping me inspired to learn and stay in the hairdressing industry. I'm in my second year in HITO training in New Zealand, and sometimes, I think about chucking it all in, but when I think of you and the amazing stuff you do, it keeps me motivated to keep going
