Her website's lame.

Thank you - and that was fast too! Ridgewood, NJ is a very monied town.
I had been wondering where her salon is and the name of it. It's certainly not one of the well known, big-reputation salons in NJ. Which is not to say that it's not a great place, I just don't think it's very well known. From the looks of that website though, I wouldn't be in any rush to check the place out.

This past week's episode was the first one in which the salon owners actually followed up on Tabatha's advice & weren't slacking when she came back to visit. I think having a 3rd party come in & force them to face reality, especially the part about their dad, really woke them up to the severity of the situation.
Strangely enough, the more I see of this show the more I do too.Quote:

Some of her advice is crap, admittedly. There's a lot of B.S. "you just have to want to do it" type advice, which rarely helps anyone. Or the REALLY obvious "you, the owner, are the biggest problem", which can rarely be solved conclusively.
But there are nuggets of real practical advice, if the show is fortunate enough to find a salon with a problem which actually CAN be solved permanently by a 1 week visit.
Clearly, as with Kitchen Nightmares, most of the people who apply do so just for the free renovation. And if we are being COMPLETELY honest, in the long run that's probably what's actually helping most of these people the most. Although this show lacks one huge benefit that Kitchen Nightmares gives in spades--the "Big Star is in Town" effect which draws people to the business like a magnet. Even still, the show is entertaining.
The episode abouit the LOFT was pretty good. The owner however really seems clueless about life period, I do hope that this place continues to make it. One thing I was thinking about though was they cannot have clients that cannot climb the steps unless there is a lift or an elevator I did not see somewhere.

Tabitha always threatens to fire someone, yet she never does. Underneath that gruff exterior and foul mouth is a pussy cat? Nah.
The way she walks and is always dressed in black reminds me of the dog trainer, Victoria Stillwell, on Barking Mad. That show is always entertaining without the swearing.
She said in an interview (it might've even been the reunion show) that she always wears black, red or white. It's just her favorite style. And she's pale & blonde enough that black looks striking on her.
I agree. I was glad that it was running well. What I don't understand (and it was in this episode) is do they hire people who have not even gone to beauty school? That one young girl (the deer in the headlights) said that the girls had trained her- yet couldn't even do a decent haircut. It makes me wonder about the credentials of some of these stylists.Quote:
