Cosmopolitan TV is full of big hair, spray tans and a healthy dose of attitude with the Canadian premiere of the successful U.S. reality series Jerseylicious on Wednesday, May 11 at 8 p.m. This one-hour series follows seven stylists in and out of a salon in New Jersey as they makeover customers, flaunt their distinct style, and gossip with customers.
Jerseylicious gives viewers a glimpse into the personal and professional lives of these Jersey stylists. The Gatsby Salon is located in Central New Jersey and run by the business savvy mother/daughter team of Gayle and Christy, who are under enormous pressure to grow the salon’s clientele. The drama at the salon is fuelled by Olivia, a young but bold makeup artist who’s trying to make it on her own, and Tracy, an overly confident hair stylist who loves battling with Olivia for attention – especially over the same man. Also working at the salon is Gigi, a young stylist who wants nothing more than a big Italian wedding – even though she’s not engaged and Alexa, one of the top bridal make-up artists in the tri-state area who proudly refers to herself as the “Glam Fairy”. Rounding out the group is stylist Anthony, the only male stylist, who got into the beauty business to meet girls. Now married with a growing family, he has joined the Gatsby Salon team while his own salon is under renovations.
