Tonight on Tabatha’s Salon Takeover on BRAVO, Tabatha Coffey pays a visit to Tantrum Salon in Covina, California.Â The owners of the salon, Robert and Jody, have no idea what they are in for when Tabatha arrives at their salon. Neither does Tabatha.
Tabatha first takes Jody and Robert on a little video adventure of what really goes on with the stylistsÂ during business hours at Tantrum. The three watch as Margie (Robert’s sister and also the front desk manager of the salon) is constantly eating food at the front desk in front of customers.Â The video takes a disgusting turn when Jody, his partner, points out cockroaches on the floor of the salon.Â Margie decides that this would be a perfect thing to pick up and parade around in front of the customers. On this episode of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover on BRAVO, they also realize that Jody is rarely at the salon, and Robert does most of the work.
Upon inspection of the salon, Tabatha notices not only filthy conditions with cockroaches and wet towels piled in the kitchen, she also notices a sign that clearly indicated that kids really are not welcomed in the salon. Tabatha points out to Robert and Jody that in such a family oriented neighborhood, they are losing a lot of money because of it.
Tabatha takes Robert’s keys to the salon and meets with the stylists, who are all in agreement that Jody is never there. After the staff meeting, which Margie conveniently missed, Tabatha has a serious discussion to where Jody decides she is going to sell her interest in the salon to Robert.Â Tabatha then takes the staff of Tantrum out into the community to show them that giving cuts to families may be the added business that they need.Â Â Tabatha also makes the staff clean out the salon, and the renovation begins.
After walking into a newly renovated Tantrum, Tabatha makes her recommendations to Robert, which include making Jerry the Manager of the salon, and demoting Corito an assistant.Â Tabatha returns to the salon six weeks later only to notice that Tantrum has really changed for the better.Â Another successful takeover!
Which salon will Tabatha takeover next?Â Will they be able to take her advice, or will they make her turn and run?
