Sarah Palin's Salon Stars on Big Hair Alaska

Tonight, You Can See What Happens at Sarah Palin's Salon

You could be forgiven for not noticing tonight's debut of Big Hair Alaska, a reality series about the Beehive Beauty Shop. The two-part special, which follows the workers and clientele of a Wasilla, AK, salon — yes, it's where Sarah Palin has her hair done — airs this evening on TLC. Yet oddly, there's nary a mention of it on TLC's homepage beyond its small inclusion in a schedule. A preview suggests that the Beehive is more than just a primping parlor; it's a place where Wasillans share stories, advice, and chit-chat.

Still, the show doesn't sound like an obvious must watch for the beauty-obsessed or reality-loving crowd. Whereas other salon reality shows have involved an element of creative competition or celebrity glamour, Big Hair Alaska seems to rely mostly on telling hairstyling stories with a grizzly-bear twist. And as election season puts Michele Bachmann in Palin's former media spotlight, a vague Palin connection isn't as much of a selling point as it might have been even six months ago. If this show aims to make for water cooler conversation, it'll need strong story lines to lure viewers into palling around with colorists. Big Hair Alaska airs on TLC tonight at 10 p.m.
