The new season of Bravo's "Tabatha's Salon Takeover," premieres Tuesday, November 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
With the economy contributing to the dire situations of fledgling small business owners nationwide, Tabatha hits the metropolitan cities of Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami to work with ten different beauty salons literally about to go under.

Fans first met Tabatha as an acerbic contestant on the first season of Bravo's "Shear Genius," and since that time she has increasingly earned respect for her unapologetic, brutally honest approach. Tabatha speaks from years of experience as a stylist and salon owner. Since her start as a salon assistant at the age of 14 in her homeland of Surfer's Paradise, Australia, she instantly fell in love with the field. At 15, she started a four-year apprenticeship program in Australia, and her love for hairdressing grew. Next she moved to London for eight years to continue her training, and has since been working in the beauty field in the U.S. for 19 years. She has a large clientele nationwide and owns the Industrie Hair Gurus salon in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
Entering the salon doors donned in her signature all-black attire and perfectly coifed short blond hair, the awed reactions of the salon owners and stylists upon seeing her are a testament to the respect she has earned in the field. Love her or hate her, Tabatha's expertise is indisputable. The stakes are high for these salon owners, who are often about to lose everything and quickly realize that in order to save their livelihoods, they need to step up to Tabatha's strict business and styling standards. She will stand for nothing less than passion and commitment from the stylists she coaches. Her critical eye probes the salons' customer service, cleanliness, professionalism, and overall styling techniques. This season, she will again make her recommendations for which stylists should have a higher profile in the salon, and which ones might need to be fired. The end results are often dramatic and inspire all those who have come in contact with Tabatha to strive for only their best.
