Let's meet the judges! Again we have Kim Vo and Kelly Atherton, and they are joined by Tabatha, who was voted the Shear Genius Season 1 fan favorite. Jaclyn looks a little more pleased to be here today, and it might be her awesome hair this week, which is blown out all big and shiny. Nekisa's client Lauri is first. Her hair is still long and blonde, and just looks smoothed out nicely with some waves. Nekisa seems to think Tabatha is going to like that, for some reason. Daniel's client Megan had long brown hair, and now she has long brown hair with bangs! Paulo's client Vicki had long blonde hair, which is now long and blonde with a few extra layers and way too much product so that it looks a bit crispy. Nicole's client Jeana is the first one to really look better. Her hair had been really stringy, but on the runway it's soft and shiny, a bit shorter, a bit darker, and she now has bangs. Matthew's client Quinn wanted more body, and so he used a round brush on her hair. I think he darkened it up a bit too, maybe? Glenn's client Tamra had long blonde hair, and now has long blonde hair with layers. It does look much more well-maintained now, if not terribly different. Charlie's client Kara looks great. She had really long, dark hair. He brought it up a few inches so that it's still really long but has some shape, and gave her really long, thick bangs. He claims he softened the color but I must admit I can't tell.
Gail's client Kimberly... looks exactly the same. This is probably on account of the fact that she wouldn't let Gail even trim her hair. The lowlights add pretty much nothing to the picture. Jaclyn looks vexed and we see why -- over Gail's comment that she thinks Kimberly could have used a few inches cut off we see the back of her hair, and how the bottom few inches thin out into ugly strings and an uneven line. Gail should have put her foot down. Parker's client Tammy had long dark hair that's now -- say it with me! -- long and dark with bangs. It's noticeably darker, and while the cut is really nice, the color is too dark now. Dee's client McKenzie went from long, really blonde hair to a cut just a few inches past her shoulders with lowlights in the blonde. She also cut bangs, and all together the look is great. She still looks young, but she looks much more put-together. Meredith's client Briana had long, blonde hair (wow, that's getting boring to type -- well, and to watch, frankly) into which she also cut bangs. She also seems to have put in some slightly darker color, which does look nice, though I feel like the bangs are a tad heavy for Briana's face.
