    Shear Genius – Episode Seven

    Shear Genius – and then there were three!

    One more time the producers came up with a great show. Two excellent challenges that had me on edge for all four hairdressers. The elimination challenge was awesome. The four hairdressers were to create a specific “look” for a photo shoot with world renown fashion photographer, Matthew Rolstron. Matthew expressed what was important to him for end results on every model and worked with them during the photo shoot as well. They would be judged on, how well they worked with Matthew, creativity and their end product.

    They had 3 hours to produce the look and needed to share that time with a makeup artist and a manicurist. Whew! Daisey took the win for her representation of “sex kitten” which Matthew wanted done “wet.” She started by curling the hair with a small iron which was then wetted down, she was able to manipulate in piecey soft waves. She also made the smart choice of not using too much hair care product. She knew when the hair would be soaked down with water, that it would turn to a milky looking mess of hair. Kudo’s Daisey!

    The favorite of mine in this competition was Ben with his interpretation of “retro rocker.” I found myself sweating with him when after two hours working with his model, he had nothing! I think he intuitively knew what to do but didn’t have the confidence in himself that he could pull it off. He pulled off his “rocker” look in the final moments during the photo shoot. Matthew wanted a look of “vertical” in this style that Ben hadn’t achieved to his liking. Ben was able to work with Matthew during the photo shoot to meet his expectations . . . and then some.

    Anthony, what a great team player he shows himself to be today. Having won the first challenge, he had first choice of what “look” he wanted to take on. He then divvied out the remaining looks to his competitors. He chose to give the others a style “look” that he knew suited them or that they would be most comfortable. They clearly all liked what he chose for them. Even though he fell short of pleasing the judges and Matthew with his “retro-glamour girl” horizontal hair, he won in my book for sportsmanship and camaraderie.

    It’s too sad any of these talented hairdressers have to lose now, but, Dr. Boogie was the one who had to go. In over correcting his work, he weighed down the “diva star,” lighter than air look, he was suppose to achieve. His model looked better at the beginning of the shoot than at the end. He also showed a lack of “team” skills during the photo shoot, that hurt his chances of moving into the final round.

    Next week is the final episode . . . I’m not ready for this fun show and competition to end!
