Salon Confidential – I’m back on the telly!

Salon Confidential

Hot on the heels of my TV Debut on ‘Rearing to Go‘, The Stented Papa is gonna be back on your TV screens in October in possibly one of the most anticipated shows on RTE in recent years called ‘Salon Confidential‘ – yeah baby yeah!!!

It doesn’t rain but it pours as I filmed both shows in the same week. But I have to say, it was a great experience being involved in this show as it’s going to air on RTE 2 in October. (Rearing to Go is on the RTE Player). Plus there’ll be adverts running in the build up to its start date so it’s gonna have some serious exposure.

so What’s salon confidential about there chief?

It’s based on the concept that we tend to open up to our barbers / hairdressers when we’re in there. And it’s fair to say that the conversation can vary wildly and can range from the weather to the match or from priests to porn sites – and just about anything in between!

The Irish are very comfortable chatting away to strangers they have just met and when we’re in the chair, it’s no different!

Salon Confidential RTE2 logoWhere & when is salon confidential on?

Well, it’s on RTE 2.

It starts in October – that’s all I know atm (I’ll update once I get specific date & time).

Keep your eyes peeled for the ads about it!

Controversial or conservative?

OK while I’m not about to let the cat out of the bag on exactly what my role & conversation will be about on Salon Confidential, I will say it is anything BUT conservative!

Now I haven’t seen any of it since being on set so I’ve no idea how the editing will look but I’m pretty confident of my performance and more importantly, I’m pretty sure I didn’t say anything that will get me into (too) much trouble with The Stented Missus!

so many conversations…

What I can tell you is Salon Confidential is a four-part series with a wide range of discussions. From the light-hearted to the serious, I can’t wait to see how it looks. (Not to mention Salon Confidentialhow the Irish public take to it).

The production company behind the show, WAKA TV clearly sourced the best barbers & hairdressers from around the country to take part including Hair by Nigel.

Ironically, my barber’s name was also Ross! His barber shop is based in Carlow and is called Mr. Snips & I’d highly recommend him. He’s a sound bloke and we had a great buzz filming. You should also seriously check out his Instagram account & Insta-Stories which are just gas.

future TV career?!

Who’s know ya know!! Never say never and all that. I had an absolute blast on both shows – both of which occurred because I’m a Daddy Blogger. It’s not half bad this blogging gig ha?!!
