OWN Features Franklin Beauty School in New Docu-Series

Oprah Winfrey Network's newest docu-series, "Houston Beauty," will follow the lives of the students and staff at one of the oldest beauty schools in the country. The Franklin Beauty School is full of big personalities and big challenges as the students try to earn their cosmetology licenses and change the course of their lives

Houston Beauty shines a light on the big dreams, big personalities and even bigger challenges of its students and staff. The Jemison Family has owned and operated Franklin Beauty School for over 98 years, making it one of the oldest beauty schools in the country. They run a tight ship, but they aren't always prepared for what will walk through their doors.

For many of their students, the stakes are high as they have major barriers to overcome in their lives. A cosmetology license would mean a whole new life for them—but only if they can overcome their personal struggles along the way. With the help of Ms. J and her staff, Franklin students are set on a path for success in both cosmetology and life.

Ms. J's tough love inspires students through difficult circumstances and gives them the determination to keep on track to a better future. She is a mother figure to many of her students and is known (sometimes to a fault!) to never give up on them, truly earning the nickname "Mama J."
