My Fifteen Minutes of Hair Fame

Read about Rick Mosley Hair client Katie Coyle’s experience on NBC’s “Ready for Love,” including how impressed the head stylist was with her hair


International stylists were impressed with Rick Mosley Hair client Katie Coyle’s hair while filming “Ready for Love.”

While I rarely watch television, I learned about the new reality dating show, “Ready for Love,” while watching “The Voice” with my kids about a year ago.  I saw a commercial to go online and apply, and thought what the heck!  I have never done anything like this before, but took a leap of faith that resulted in a Skype interview with the show’s casting agency.  The agents must have liked me, because they pitched me to NBC – and the network approved!

Overall, the process involved tons of paperwork and everything moved very quickly.  To make a long story short, last Memorial Day I found out that I was selected.  I only had five days to get everything together before flying to California where I met with a matchmaker who had to think I was a good fit for one of the show’s three bachelors.

After several days of interviews and photos, it was finally time for our stage days.  Call time was 4 a.m. and we were not done filming until 1 a.m.  Once Ben (one of the bachelors) chose me to continue, I moved into Pacific Palisades with eight other women.  We lived in the house that Rihanna recently purchased, which was pretty cool, but also full of drama.

My biggest compliment came when Pasquale, the head stylist from Italy, said he was not going to touch my hair (unlike the work he had to do on most of the other contestants).  He thought my color and cut were beautiful and instantly assumed I was from Los Angeles.  When I told him I was from Iowa, he nearly fell over.  (He also thought we grew potatoes here!)  His response was, “Well, they are doing a beautiful job in Iowa.”

I have been a loyal client of Rick Mosley Hair for at least 15 years, after a friend referred me.  I have tried other places, for convenience sake since I live an hour from the salon, but nobody can color or cut my hair the way Rick’s team does.

Overall, the show was a great experience.  I have made great memories and friends.  And, even though I didn’t find true love, I have no regrets and am proud of the way I represented Iowa.
