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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Tabatha Coffey is more than a hairstylist with incredible flair, a business woman with enviable moxie, and the star of her own hit reality show - she s an agent of transformation. Born in Australia to rather unconventional parents who ran a burlesque club, Tabatha spent much of her childhood observing the beauty rituals of the transvestite performers her parents employed and later attending to their hair and make-up. It was in the club that she first learned how to make one s outside more fully reflect what s on the inside-how to help people find their signature look. It was there too that her own transformation from an overweight child to a fit, confident, and determined adult began. But perhaps the most surprising element of her journey was how she developed her work ethic and her much admired business acumen. When her father abandoned her family under the most dramatic of circumstances, it was her mother s determination to move on with dignity, that taught Tabatha the importance of taking charge of one s own future. From her mother s example she learned how to achieve both financial independence and emotional resilience. While some viewers of her television appearances have called her a bitch due to her forthright manner, Tabatha doesn t take the term as an insult. Instead she wears the title proudly, redefining it as someone with Bravery, Integrity, Tenacity, Creativity, and Honesty. Tabatha is a confidante to every person who sits in her salon chair; a mentor to every business owner who dares to take her blunt, cogent, and very sound advice, and a fearless inspiration to anyone seeking their own inner and/or outer transformation. This powerful memoir, laced with the kind of no-nonsense business and personal advice expected from the unrestrained Tabatha Coffey, is must reading for anyone interested in where beauty really comes from and for all those who wish to become her particular brand of B.I.T.C.H. too.
