Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show offers a colorful look inside Beverly Hills' only African-American-owned salon and reflects the unique characteristics of the black beauty shop culture without relying on traditional racial stereotypes. Also adding to the show's flair are the "Fabulizing" segments, which show how a specific client's hair is transformed and which are designed to look more like music videos than a reality show.

Much of the staff's conversations and over-the-top behavior seem so staged for the cameras that you have to wonder whether it's scripted. Viewers may also question when the stylists actually spend time working on clients' hair. But despite the lack of authenticity, the cast members are interesting enough to make the show somewhat entertaining.
