Reality Works By Melisa Wells 148 NAILPRO J U LY 2013 T he unscripted reality television genre exploded in the early 2000s, paving the way for a variety of makeover shows that are now topping the ratings charts. Americans seem to enjoy watching the road to improvement. One show that has made an impact with an enormous fan base is Tabatha Takes Over, which is finishing its fifth season on the Bravo network and stars Tabatha Coffey, an Australian hair stylist who first caught the attention of followers on another reality show, Shear Genius. In each episode, Coffey takes control of a salon business whose owner has asked for help, typically because she is on the verge of shutting down. In the course of a week, Coffey works with the entire staff to figure out a course of action for the future of the business, makes recommendations to the owner and renovates the salon before handing back the keys. NAILPRO recently sat down with Coffey to gain valuable advice on how a dose of reality can provoke realistic changes and get you on the right track.
