Jonathan Antin started his hairstyling career as a teenager in Melrose. He dropped out of high school and enrolled in the local beauty school. Jonathan was very popular, charismatic, and a perfectionist with hair. From a young age he looked at every hairstyle and cut as an art piece. As Jonathan says, “your hair can make you a star.” This blend of perfectionism and charisma soon gained him lots of A list celebrity clients. Soon clients had to make appointments 3 months in advance and it was getting to be time for Jonathan to start his own salon and make it on his own. This driven teenager was on his way to becoming one of the biggest and most sought after hairstylists ever.
Blow Out has put a new spin on reality TV. It blends high fashion and trendy Beverly Hills (something most of us could never afford - $500 haircuts and styles) and throws in action and a little fashion sense and how to. A viewer can come away not only entertained, but also with a better understanding of hairstyles, fashion, fashion shows, and what really goes into a hot haircut and what goes on behind the scenes. There’s a lot more to it than most of us are aware of. It’s not easy as there is lots of stress, unbelievable deadlines, inevitable chaos, etc… But, when its done right, as Jonathan seems to manage time and time again, the results are awe inspiring. Blow Out shows all the trials and tribulations of Jonathan and his salon as he tries to establish himself as a great salon and hairstylist.
Just like in other reality shows some of antin’s team (hairstylists and assistants) make it and some get cut. That doesn’t mean they aren’t very capable in their own right, it just means they weren’t up to the stress and Jonathan’s short fuse. Jonathan has a right to be tough, his reputation, salon and name are riding on this Blow Out series. A good part of the show is dedicated to his assistants and hairstylists and their uniqueness and ability to work together.
Blow Out is destined to be another blockbuster reality TV series and Jonathan will be a huge name in the hairstyling and fashion world. Aaron Spelling would be proud to have this series under his belt. Watch Blow Out on the Bravo channel – you will be glad you did.
