With nearly two decades of experience in print, broadcast, and digital journalism, Bahar Takhtehchian is a multi-faceted writer, editor, television personality, and content creator based in New York City.
After spending three-and-a-half years as the Editor-at-Large and spokesperson of SHAPE magazine, Bahar is currently working as a freelance journalist in the beauty and lifestyle space.
A trusted and sought-after on-air expert, Bahar has appeared in more than a thousand TV segments and can be seen regularly on NBC’s TODAY Show, Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, Fox & Friends, The Wendy Williams Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, and local stations across the country. She is known for delivering innovative news and tips in an authoritative yet approachable manner and is skilled at making complex information conversational and easy to comprehend.
Always at the forefront of the latest research and trends, Bahar is an authority in the beauty and lifestyle industry who specializes in adding a relatable spin to her content. Whether she’s showcasing her must-have travel products on TV or writing a personal blog post on her postpartum experience, her goal is to educate and inform her audience by providing actionable tips and advice.
When Bahar’s not testing the latest lipsticks (she’s never met a nude shade she didn’t love), strollers (she has three and counting), or vacuums (she holds a special place in her heart for Dysons), she can be found playing with her son, whipping up a homemade meal, or traveling to a beautiful beachside destination with her husband.
The Chicago native (and deep dish pizza lover—hello, Pequod’s!) is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, where she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
