Product Description

From the Back Cover

Fans of the hit Bravo show Tabatha's Salon Takeover tune in for the straight-shooting, unvarnished commentary of its ballsy, stylish, and savvy star. Though millions admire Tabatha Coffey's unflinching honesty and never-say-die attitude, some do not and have even taken to name-calling. Refusing to let others define her, she has reclaimed the word "bitch," transforming it to fit the person she is: Brave, Intelligent, Tenacious, Creative, and Honest.

In It's Not Really About the Hair, this deeply private woman shares the experiences of her own life to encourage you to get in touch with your own inner bitch. Tabatha reveals how she used her strength and openness to help define her signature look, personal relationships, life choices, and tenacious work ethic—one that in her own words likens her to "a pit bull with a bone." Here are the people and the circumstances that have led her to a place of honesty, self-assurance, satisfaction, and success—from her tough-minded mum to her famous mentors, her peers, and clients.

Part memoir, part business manual, and part coaching guide on achieving self-acceptance and love, It's Not Really About the Hair teaches you that it's all right to be who you are, stand up for what you believe in, and do what makes you happy without being defined by others.

Tabatha Coffey's raw, funny, shocking, and always inspirational story will encourage you to celebrate the long-lasting and most important beauty of all—the true beauty that is you.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone thinking about a career in the beauty industry. Tabatha's story outlines the pros and cons of both your professional and personal life while giving inspiration to aspiring hairstylists. She may come across as harsh or aggressive but this memoir shines another light on her life that made me respect her and her talent all the more.

I loved watching Tabatha on TV so when I saw she had written a memoir I was very excited. I read this book in two sittings and found it very interesting. You learn a lot about Tabatha and how she has become the person she is. If you enjoy her personality on TV I'm sure you will love her book :)

Love Tabitha, and her book. She is a no nonsense kinda girl, and you do not need to be a stylist to enjoy her book. Her life experience will certainly be an inspiration to anyone who reads this great book. So good read it in one sitting.
