Tabatha Coffey has devoted her entire professional life to achieving excellence in hair design and education. From the beginning of her career when she was 14 in her native Surfer’s Paradise, Australia, to her appearance as the “Fan Favorite” on Bravo’s hit series, Shear Genius, Coffey has been completely devoted to the art of hair.
As host of the hit Bravo series Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, Tabatha Coffey brought her years of hands-on experience (as well as her trademark unapologetic and brutally honest assessments) to salon owners and stylists in dire need of her skilled business direction. Her newest series, “Tabatha Takes Over” expands beyond salons and follows the demanding perfectionist as she takes over various small businesses and family enterprises and whips them into shape.
With her signature edgy style, youthful energy and exceptional skills as an artist and educator, Tabatha Coffey is without question the industry’s golden girl.
She’s seen it all. Feuding co-owners. A children’s salon whose stylists don’t like kids. A stripper pole in the middle of the room. These struggling salons have let things get out of control, but Tabatha gives these struggling businesses the major push they need to get back on track.
In addition to regularly traveling around the world to educate stylists, Tabatha is busy leading her team of hairstylists and colorists at her own salon, where she is in high demand and has built a large clientele. She also works regularly as an editorial stylist for fashion and beauty publications and backstage during New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
She is the author of It’s Not Really About the Hair: The Honest Truth About Life, Love, and the Business of Beauty.
