Most people would go to a hair salon and tell all about themselves or about other people to their hair stylists. Unfortunately, some hair stylists couldn’t keep a secret and that is where the problem starts.
It is said that the amount of gossips that is shared in these beautifying business could probably fill the pages of many magazines and would interest those, who are nosy enough. And now ITV bosses got a bright idea of making money from these gossipers of a glamorous Manchester that are based salon in a fly-on-the-wall style series.
In the past, there are already some hair shows that make it big in the TV industry like The Salon and the Great British Hairdresser pulling in thousands of viewers.
“We have a lot of glamorous ladies coming through here, lots of hen parties, celebrities, WAGs and WAG wannabes”
The location of the new show will be at Kara’s Blow Dry Bar, which has been visited by the city’s fashionistas, famous faces and WAGs. Filming of the show will done at the salon, and will follow the day-to-day activities that goes on inside, as well as the lives of flamboyant female clients that occupy it.
Entrepreneur Kara Britton, one of the reality show casts started the salon two years ago, also has her own fascinating story to tell. Aside from being a hairstylist, she is also a hotshot litigation lawyer.
She is planning to launch her own law firm, Muldoon Britton, in offices above her salon on John Dalton Street with her partner. Together with her partner, they will concentrate in banking and finance litigation as well as managing the reputation of celebrities.
The blonde bombshell held a summer pampering party this week, with VIP clients in attendance that include actress Roxanne Pallett, Key 103 DJ Chelsea Norris and city stylistas, prior to filming on the pilot TV show that is about to start next week. The camera is going to be mounted on the walls to get all-day scenes of the salon’s comings and goings.
“We have a lot of glamorous ladies coming through here, lots of hen parties, celebrities, WAGs and WAG wannabes," said Kara.
“There are about 10 of our regular clients that the TV producers are interested in following both in the salon and in their everyday lives.”
The specialty of the salon is a 30-minute blow dry for those busy women ready for a night out, and Kara, from Castlefield, has plans on having it franchise to other cities.
