Tabatha discusses what it's like to take over a former student's salon.

on Apr 19, 20130

I was so surprised when Chris reached out for me to take over her salon Top Cuts. I heard that she had been ill, but I also heard she had made an amazing recovery and I already knew what she was capable of skill wise, so I thought it must have been a joke.



I was gobsmacked when I saw the behavior of her staff and manager and got to know more about her business model -- it was not the Christine I knew. I quickly discovered the staff felt the same way, and they all wanted the "Old Chris" back. I was nervous she was gone forever.

I really was a fan of the show, loved tabatha's no-nonsense, tough business woman persona.  Then when her former student, distraught and looking to tabatha for comfort and guidance, gave her a hug, miss TABATHA said "I don't do hugs!"  talk about mean, self-important, and snotty.  I thought she was a person with a "tough love " approach, now I think she is just a stuck up b-tch.  she didn't have to SAY it.  so she doesn't like hugs, she didn't have to say it right then.  rude rude RUDE.  I was very put off.  sorry, miss tabatha, you lost a fan.    .

If I were Little Chris I wouldn't be so quick to trust Melissa. (IMJS)

I was super excited that you filmed in my town of Bethpage. Was a little disappointed when they showed landmarks of the town as a water tower and docks. Our little town has a lot to offer. We have movie studios. We are home to Grumman. We have the Bethpage state park that has hosted the US Open twice in the past few years. Our community park has an indoor ice skating rink and a brand new skateboard park and our high school has beautiful grounds. Just wanted to say a little something about how great our town is. More than a water tower and a dirty "welcome to Bethpage" sign showed.

I've been going to Top Cuts for many years & saw the latest changes when I went in for my last hair cut.  The changes & improvements are wonderful!  Very  happy to see things are looking up Christine & all the employees!!  : D
