I had the privilege of going to see an advanced screening of cutting it in the Atl, a new reality show about the hair industry in Atlanta. I generally don’t watch reality shows unless it’s Top Chef. I was interested to see this show because it was centered around the actual business owners. Not having many expectations, I went.
After seeing the full show I actually enjoyed it! There is obviously going to be a certain amount of ridiculousness and cat fighting because that’s what the viewers want to see. I did however, see how the women cared about their businesses and their brands. There were two stand outs on the show that I really want to watch. One is Maja who owns a chain of lesser priced weave shops and the other is Mushiya who owns a natural hair salon. Maja made i believe she said 1.2 million dollars last year and it was all self-made so yes, I will absolutely listen to her. Mushiya, lives her brand which I believe is very important. If you have a natural hair salon then no one in your salon should have hair that does not reflect your salon offerings.
I will do my best to watch the entire season so that I can see how exactly these women do. I love to see entrepreneurs at work especially women. Even tho I’m not a fan of the drama I am a fan of seeing businesses expand and employ. We all if done right reality TV definitely gives you a platform for expansion.
Above is a clip from the season. Unfortunately, this trailer is PACKED with drama..
