If you've gone to a cosmetology school -- I occassionally get my hair styled there for cheap -- then you know all of the drama that can happen in a school setting.
I've had my hair whipped by folks who can do some hair; the only thing they're missing is their state license. I've also had it done by others who needed a little coaching from instructors. Just as entertaining are the students themselves, who come from all walks of life (the young student fresh out of high school, the older mom trying to make her dreams come true and the divalicious dude who, BABY, can do some hair!).
Now, OWN is turning it all into a reality show. Houston Beauty features the real-life drama and antics of the Franklin Beauty School, run by the Jemison family. At nearly 100 years old, the school in Houston is one of the oldest existing beauty schools in the country.
Under the tutelage of Mama J., we'll get a peek into what goes on behind the scenes, as she ladles heavy doses of tough love to her students, despite their challenging circumstances. I'm just waiting for the drama!
A sneak peek premieres at 10 p.m. EST on Oct. 30 and the show's season debut is 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov.2 on OWN.
