Local hairstylist competes on reality show, "American Beauty" (KTRK)

Hair stylist Corey Ford sounds a bit groggy when we first start chatting over the phone. The Baytown native and Houston salon owner's life has been quite a whirlwind since he was chosen to compete on American Beauty Star, premiering Thursday at 9:30 pm on Lifetime network.

The new show takes viewers behind the chair for an adrenaline-fueled look at the beauty world, similar to shows like Project Runway (which is on Lifetime right before it), and America's Next Top Model. Ford is among 12 stylists chosen from across the country to compete on the show, which pairs hair stylists with make-up artists to create complete looks in an array of challenges.

A friend told Ford, who opened his Salon 1409 on Caroline Street in 2014, about the show, and after a Skype interview, things quickly picked up steam.
