Kathleen Flynn-Hui - hairdresser to the stars - takes readers behind the frosted glass panels of the top salons and into the glamorous and bitchy world of women (and men) who'd kill for a handful of honeyed highlights.
'Beyond The Blonde' follows the fortunes of Georgia, a small-town girl with big-city ambitions as she makes her ascent to the position of colourist at one of the most exclusive salons in New York. But if Georgia is to achieve the heady heights of urban salon success first she must battle bullies, find romance, endure heartbreak and betrayal. Can she make the cut? Or will it all unravel like a perm in a rainstorm?
Anyone who loved 'The Nanny Diaries' for its peek into an unknown world of slavery and hardship will adore 'Beyond The Blonde' for similar reasons. And as for those who couldn't miss an episode of 'Cutting It', here is the ideal book to plug the gap between series.
In this superb roman-a-clef, Kathleen Flynn-Hui tells it like it is and gives readers more than one opportunity to spot the stars behind the stories . . .
