OWN just keeps coming with the hits. The newest docu-series for the network, “Houston Beauty,” will follow the lives of the students and staff at one of the oldest beauty schools in the country. The Franklin Beauty School is full of big personalities and big challenges as the students try to earn their cosmetology licenses and change the course of their lives.
For many of the students, there are serious barriers they must overcome before crossing that finish line. And the Jemison Family, the owners and operators of the school since its 98 year existence are there to help the students in their success in beauty school and, more importantly, in life.
Ms. J, whom the students call Mama J, is the matriarch of the shop, who inspires the students through their challenges and attempts to help them stay on track and reach their goals.
Take a look at the trailer below.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who realized just how this s how seems to follow the “Sweetie Pie’s” model. And there’s nothing wrong with that. When something works, don’t bother it. I happen to love Sweetie Pies, so I’m excited about this show. You don’t have to be in the beauty shop for too long before you realize there are characters to be found there. And this beauty school doesn’t seem to be any exception. These women, men and instructors are going to be a hoot.
Tune in for a special sneak peek of Houston Beauty on Wednesday, October 30th at 10/9c and the series premiere Saturday, November 2nd at 10/9c.
