Her resume reads like a biography of a born hairstylist. From the beginning of her career at age 14 in her native Australia, to time spent learning from Vidal Sassoon in London, to her appearance as the “Fan Favorite” on Bravo’s hit series, Shear Genius in 2007, Tabatha has been completely devoted to the art of hair. She has been an editorial stylist and contributor for fashion and beauty publications; an award show correspondent for the TV Guide Channel; and an in-demand stylist and salon owner. For 10 years, she represented a globally known hair company as a key member of its artistic team, where she traveled the world to educate stylists and represent the company at hair shows.

For five successful seasons, Tabatha brought her years of hands-on experience to Bravo’s hit TV series, Tabatha’s Salon Takeover. In each episode, the no-nonsense and smartly styled Coffey transformed the lives and businesses of salon owners across the country. She also produced and starred in Tabatha Takes Over (2008) and Relative Success with Tabatha (2018).
