It's Not Really About the Hair : The Honest Truth About Life, Love, and the Business of Beauty
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.

1 . Trashy...and not in a good way!
Posted February 01, 2011 by Joe H. , PhiladelphiaSo, if you're like me and you're a hairdresser who loves Tabatha Coffey and you're thinking about buying this book because it would be a wonderfully motivating, inspirational, "secrets-to-success" type of book, DON'T BOTHER!
I love Tabatha's integrity and her seemingly "no BS" approach to the way she lives her life but I was hoping that somewhere within the context of this book would be tools that one could use to capture the same level of success that she, herself has achieved. No such luck. After all, Tabatha has made an incredible impact on the salon industry and has become a huge success in her own right within the industry but wouldn't one assume that within a publication of her notoriaty there would be some usuable guidence for her followers?
The books title, "It's Not Really About the Hair" should have been my first clue since, really nothing in this book has much to do about the manner in which Ms Coffey gained her success. It is, instead, a book full of gratuitous vulgarity, and for what purpose; just to remind us that she's a force to be reckoned with?
If you want to read about how much she hates her father, the size of her "Mum's" balls or her discontent of nearly every other living human being, pick up a copy of this book. Otherwise, it's a boring read that leads one down a road of self-centeredness and egocentricity.
It's sad to realize that someone I've admired and perhaps even idolized has such a pointless life story to tell. Don't get me wrong, Tabatha is still an amazing hairdresser but I didn't need to read how superior she's been to nearly every other person she's ever encountered in her entire life. It got boring after the first 15 pages and seemed to get no better throughout.
Sorry, Tabatha. Keep being the "Uber-B" but stick to what you know (hairdressing) and leave the book-writing to those who know how to write and tell a good story.
