Tabatha Coffey is an Australian hairstylist, salon owner, and American television personality. Her participation as a contestant on the television show Shear Genius led to her own television show, Tabatha's Salon Takeover.
Tabatha started her career as an assistant in an Australian salon at age 14. She wanted to learn more and took a four-year apprenticeship before moving to London and training for a further three years.
Coffey has since opened her own salon, Industrie Hair Gurus in Ridgewood, New Jersey. Having fallen in love with hairstyling’s ability to transform people, she has set out to do just that to her clients, creating a special look for each individual, unlike other stylists who specialize in a certain look.
