Salon famous for Palin's up-do gets reality show

August 2, 2011 - 7:59 PM

WASILLA, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska hair salon made famous for Sarah Palin's up-do is getting the reality show treatment in a two-part series to be aired in September on TLC.

That's the same cable network that aired "Sarah Palin's Alaska," an eight-part docu-series on the former Alaska governor, 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and possible presidential candidate.

TLC spokeswoman Laure Goldberg declined to identify the salon in "Big Hair Alaska." But a hairdresser in Palin's hometown of Wasilla says the salon to be featured in the show is the Beehive Beauty Shop.

Mariah Hopper, a hairdresser at the Beehive, says she's not authorized to say whether Palin still frequents the salon.

Shop proprietor Jessica Steele, longtime keeper of Palin's hair, could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
