Nicole leads her girl in and realizes she misunderstood Michael, and that her model will be laying in a bed of snow (as opposed to snow just being sprinkled on top of her). Nicole clearly wasn't listening since they showed him describe the shoot and he described it exactly as how it is now. The hair is really boring -- it's just some curls with some bright red to match the dress and Nicole spends her time picking fake snow out of it and getting mad that Michael says it looks dry and not smooth enough. Jaclyn tells the Allure ladies quietly that she thinks there's no actual style, and Nicole has enough self-awareness to realize that the shoot was a disaster. Dee brings her girl in and immediately is told that there is frizz. She fixes that and then is told that it's not moving the right way. Kim Vo notes to the other judges that he thinks the cut is totally wrong to have any movement. And what is it with these guys with the colored tips? Her girl has bright orange at the end of her hair. Dee is clearly not taking the criticism well.
Charlie's girl has wild, frizzy curls piled up on her head and while I think it looks great, Michael thinks it looks "too period" and not avant-garde enough. Those words have lost all real meaning at this point from being thrown around too much. Charlie runs up and begins just pulling pieces out all over the place, which then displeases Michael because there is frizz. But Charlie seems to take it fairly well, and by far seems the most professional, more so than airhead Nicole or seething Dee. Michael actually seems to like it now, but Kim comments on the frizz. Last up is Daniel. His girl has a big updo with flowers in her hair. In the back there are curls and braids and some red color thrown in but Michael points out that he's shooting her face and all of the detail isn't visible. In an interview, Daniel's normal cheerful tone has some bite to it and he basically comments about how Michael shouldn't have an opinion about something he doesn't do. I fear for Daniel right now. Michael talks to the judges and complains about the red and the flowers, both of which he hates. He paces angrily while Daniel tries to fix it and he claims that he made it easy to pull down just in case. Daniel then freaks out when it turns out that the "mist" is more like rain, but pats himself on the back for a good "base tease" that keeps the style in place. Michael finally, condescendingly calls it a day. Look, most of these styles were bad, but he also seems to really enjoy feeling important on top of things.
