Sarah Palin's hair could be the newest reality TV darling in September when TLC debuts a new program centering around the Tea Party figurehead's hometown salon in Alaska.
On September 20, "Big Hair Alaska" will air as a 30-minute show focused on the Wasilla, Alaska salon credited with styling the immediately recognizable up-do of the state's former governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.
"This special goes inside a busy hair salon in Wasilla... where the personalities of the owner and her staff are as big as the hairstyles they create," TLC, a cable television channel focused on reality and family programming, said in a statement.
TLC representatives declined to provide further details.
But the owner of Beehive Beauty Shop, Jessica Steele, announced the news on her Facebook page, saying "TLC just announced their fall lineup, and we are on it!!!! Our show is called Big Hair Alaska!!!! Omg!!! It's really happening!!!! :)"
A new Facebook page called "Big Hair Alaska" has already been created.
The salon is based in Wasilla, where it counted among its clients Palin, the town's biggest celebrity.
