OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is launching its latest show “Houston Beauty,”a docu-series surrounding Franklin Beauty School, a 98-year-old, family-run cosmetology school in the heart of Houston, Texas.
Led by the family matriarch, Glenda ‘Ms. J’ Jemison, Franklin Beauty School has been successfully teaching students since 1915. Known for running a tight ship and providing a “tough love” environment, Ms. J and her staff are facing changing times and are not always prepared for what will walk through their doors. The series follows the staff and students of Franklin, who come from all walks of life, as they overcome various hurdles to achieve balance and success. The stakes are high and to garner a cosmetology license could mean a whole new life for them—but only if they can overcome their personal struggles along the way.
“Houston Beauty” is more than a show about hair and beauty, but a show surrounding love, forgiveness, inspiration and dreams. With the help of ‘Ms J’ and her Franklin Beauty School staff, they work through all of the big personalities and struggles to set their students on a path towards success in both cosmetology and life.
