Personal Style: Tabatha Coffey


The Coolest Hair Design I Ever Wore:  My mohawk when I was 17-ish. I thought it was the coolest—not sure if anyone else did!

My Favorite Outfit: Too easy—my pajamas. Nothing better than slipping them on after a long day.

The Best Thing About My Salon Is: My staff—they rock and work so hard. I travel a lot and they really take great care of everything and everyone.

I Became a Hairdresser Because: What else is there? Since I can remember it was all about hair and fashion. The first book I remember asking for was French Vogue—I slept with it.

I Am Inspired By: Everything around me, but especially the person sitting in my chair. They always inspire me to do my best for them.

My Motto: Live with no regrets and if you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it.

Working with Bravo Has Been: A truly wonderful experience. I am so appreciative of the support I have been given from everyone and so proud to show how hard we as hairdressers work.

My Mentors: Vidal Sassoon, Alexandre de Paris, Bruno Patini, Garren, Anthony Mascolo, Annie Humphreys, Stephen Pratt.

Where I Shop: All over—I love small, unique boutiques. Also, Alexander McQueen and Commes de Garcon. But I also love Target!
