LAS VEGAS, NV - NOVEMBER 05: Tamar Braxton attends the 2017 Soul Train Awards, presented by BET, at the Orleans Arena on November 5, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tamar Braxton is adding another reality TV show to her resume. To Catch a Beautician will air on VH1, according to Variety. On To Catch a Beautician, Braxton is partnered with hairstylist Johnny Wright. The duo will assist clients to confront the beautician who damaged their hair on the show that debuts on May 25. Once the clients have confronted the beautician who damaged their hair, Wright puts the stylists through a “hair boot camp” before allowing them to redeem themselves by restyling their disgruntled clients’ hair.

On Monday (Apr. 20), Braxton told Variety that she’s been keeping the show a secret for almost a year. “I’ve been so excited about this. This is like a dream come true to be able to host a show that’s so much fun with an amazing production company [Scout Productions] and amazing network like VH1,” Braxton said. “To meet so many amazing people and to be able to inspire and be inspired at the same time, It’s such a feel good show… You crack up, but you feel good about yourself after watching it. I’m just really, really grateful to be a part of that.

Wright is known for serving as former First Lady Michelle Obama’s personal hairstylist as well as servicing other celebrity clients, including Queen Latifah, Maxine Waters, Regina King, Janelle Monae, and Kerry Washington. “I’d met him before at the White House when I went to go talk to Michelle [Obama],” Braxton recalled. “It just worked. And it was just so educational and entertaining at the same time. So it was really, really refreshing.”

“Hair’s never been my strongest suit, although I can tell you what’s good and what’s not good, I just can’t do it myself,” Braxton said explaining her experience with styling hair.  The series will be included among VH1’s Monday night lineup featuring  Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle.
