Premieres on VH1 Monday, May 25
VH1 announced the new series, “To Catch a Beautician,” hosted by Grammy award-nominated singer-songwriter, Tamar Braxton will premiere Monday, May 25th at 9pm T with back-to-back episodes. First Lady Michelle Obama’s former hair stylist, Johnny Wright will also appear on the show. The series will be joining the #1 non-sports Monday night line-up on cable.
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.
