I watched this episode last night, & dear god almighty! That salon was FILTHY! And the shampoo chair on cinder blocks?!?! A major safety hazard. I don't know how he stayed open. For one thing, (at least in Texas), the state does sanitation inspections on salons, & they can shut your ass down for repeated violations. Maybe California doesn't do that, or this guy has just been veerrrrry lucky (so far). And if I was a client & I walked in & saw filth everywhere (because it certainly wasn't confined to any one specific area), I would turn around & walk out. I can't believe his stylists would even put up with that. Why not take initiative to clean up, or work someplace else? And I just think it's really weird that someone with no knowledge of how do to hair would open up a salon; at the very least he should have had a partner who had a background of doing hair.
I didn't understand his apathetic attitude when Tabatha came to help him. I mean, she doesn't just randomly show up at salons ~ they have asked for her help. I don't see this place staying open through the end of the year. and what does he do, anyway? Why can't he be at the salon all day, every day? Oh, I know why ~ he's flippin' lazy & just thought all he had to do was open a salon & the masses would come. Well dude, that's not the case! Also, his esthetician creeped me out. I wouldn't let him touch me. I don't care how good he supposedly is, he's creepy. And in this business, if people don't feel comfortable with you, they're not going to come back.
And I also couldn't believe that the owner acted so put out when talking about how his stylist "complained about everything" & included their requests for clean towels as a "complaint." Seriously? To use anything except a clean towel on someone is disgusting & unprofessional, & again, a sanitation violation. And the watered-down shampoo...ugh...
I can go on for a another few days, but I'll stop now!!
