*In other entertainment salon/barbershop news, we TV is premiering a new show, “Cutting It: In the ATL,” which will air on Thursday, May 21, at 10 p.m. ET, according to the Futon Critic.
The show is focusing on four competitive salon owners. One of the owners Maja wants to grow her empire with the help of other owners Beautii, Mushiya, and Dedra, but of course, drama follows.
Beautii, “Countess of Class” and owner of Spoiled Opulence Salon, worked hard to be on top of her game. The once homeless single mother is no stranger to this competitive business and will do whatever it takes to take them all down by storm; by treating every client like a celebrity.
Dedra, “The Commander-In-Chic,” and fiercely opinionated owner of J’Doah Salon, sees her salon as a ‘hidden gem’ but is envious of more established owners like Maja, Beautii, and Mushiya. In an attempt to keep up with the competition, Dedra hires LaKenya, a former employee of Beautii’s to broaden her services and clientele. LaKenya is hoping that J’Doah is her last stop before owning her own business.
Mushiya, “The Natural Boss” and owner of The Damn Salon – THE premiere place to go for natural hair in the ATL -has a flare for the dramatic and it shows in every aspect of her life. Her beauty, unique look, and mere presence are enough to quiet any room she enters and her distaste for chemically enhanced or processed hair is no secret.
Maja, “The Minister of Weaves,” burst into the ATL hair scene by changing the playing field with Walk-In Weave Salons – the quick and affordable weave salon. This business savvy, no-nonsense salon owner has her eye on the prize and plans to soak up every last dollar Atlanta has to offer.
