"Natasha Blakeman" is a hairdresser at Audrey Roberts' hair salon. She came to Weatherfield as her old hairdressers had burnt down. She was hired by Audrey because fellow hairdreser Maria Connor had given birth to a stillborn baby and needed time off, and was initially seen making small-talk in the salon.
In December 2008, she informed Audrey that her sister-in-law had just given birth to her niece, Electra. She spotted a good business opportunity in opening the salon for late night trading hours during the week, an idea to which Audrey agreed.
Natasha was drafted in to style Molly Compton's hair for her wedding day in January 2009. In February 2009, she flirted with Steve McDonald in the Rovers and later asked him out on a date. Steve was jealous of Jason Grimshaw and Becky Granger's relationship, but reluctantly agreed to go out with Natasha. Though Natasha wasn't impressed with Steve, for their date they sat in and ate a takeaway, she told him that there were no hard feelings.
On 23rd March, 2009, Natasha paid Tony Gordon a visit. The two kissed passionately at first, Natasha did most of the talking, while Tony sat silently. Towards the end of the visit he began to soften towards her; as she left he told her to stop and take her coat off, the pair subsequently had sex. Natasha was in good spirits following her passion with Tony and gloated about it to colleague Maria Connor who was beginning to secretly harbour feelings for Tony. Maria tried to warn Natasha away from him claiming that he would treat her badly and even tried setting her up with Tom Kerrigan but to no avail as Natasha had set her sights firmly on Tony.
Some months later, Natasha began to become suspicious of the amount of time that Tony was spending with Maria. Consumed by jealousy, Natasha told Maria that he was only paying her attention because he was feeling sorry for her. Tony was furious when he discovered what Natasha had said which led to a heated showdwon between the couple, they subsequently separated.

Natasha Stengos was a member of a group of people who tried to free their loved ones from the suspended animation chambers of Tranquil Repose on Necros.
With her friend Grigory she broke into TR and tried to take back her father, Arthur Stengos. She found he was replaced with a mannequin and later found him in a laboratory being turned into a Dalek by The Great Healer (Davros). She couldn't stand looking at him like that and killed him when he asked her to.
She and Grigory was then captured by security and interrogated by Takis and Lilt (who wanted to mark her for the guards she killed). The Doctor later freed her and Grigory and they showed him where Stengos was. The Doctor wanted them to destroy the lab and then meet him in reception.
They tried to destroy the incubators mutating human brains into Daleks but were stopped when a Dalek appeared hovering above them. She tried to escape with Grigory but both of them were exterminated by the Dalek before it self-destructed. (DW: Revelation of the Daleks)
Natasha is a very fast crawler. Her parents (and even Oscar, who once babysat her) can't even catch up to her. Another notable babysitter for Natasha has included Fran Drescher who was well known at the time for playing TV's The Nanny.
Baby Natasha has appeared in at least three sketches as a superhero known as Super Baby. In one sketch, her parents, Humphrey and Ingrid, have a large bottle of milk, but no baby, and they don't want it to got to waste, so Super baby arrives and drinks the milk. In another sketch, Humphrey and Ingrid wonder what Superbaby will do that begins with S, which turns out to be "sleep". (EKA: Episode 3772) In another sketch, Super Grover talks about Super Baby as she constantly flies back and forth. She also appears in Elmo's World: Sky in this persona.
In 1994, an issue of Sesame Street Parents revealed the poll results of kids' and adults favorite Muppets when asked in an issue of Sesame Street Magazine. Natasha placed fourth in the overall list, but didn't even make the top 20 for adults. By Season 26, Natasha earned a place in the opening credits in some episodes.
Natasha was the girlfriend of an acquintance of Dimitri Rascalov, who may have been a member of the Faustin Family. It is possible she may have been in the Perestroika club when Niko shot up the place.
