New York, NY (April 20, 2020) - VH1 today announced its new series, "To Catch a Beautician," hosted by Grammy(R) award-nominated singer-songwriter, Tamar Braxton will premiere Monday, May 25th at 9:00pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes.

In the twenty-episode series, Braxton and Wright come to the rescue of clients whose hair has been botched by a beautician from their past. In a strategic sting operation, Braxton and Wright will help disgruntled customers confront the stylists who damaged their tresses. Wright will then put the beautician through a rigorous hair boot camp. Armed with new skills and techniques, the beauticians will now have a chance to redeem themselves by redoing their client's hair.

In 2012, Braxton released her No. 1 album Love and War (Epic) featuring the No. 1 single of the same name and chart-topping singles "All The Way Home" and "Hot Sugar." The critically-acclaimed album earned three Grammy(R) nominations, two Soul Train awards, and a BET Award.
