When it's her turn, Glenn admits that she wanted to go shorter but that this length was the compromise she and Tamra came to. Kim asks about the color and calls Tamra "blondarexic," much to Tamra's surprise, but she quickly recovers. Glenn tells them that she hand-painted lowlights in between the highlights, and seems to get approving nods from the panel. Charlie is next and talks about how he used slices rather than blunt lines; when Kelly tells him he might have gone a bit lighter, he explains that in this short time he doesn't like to mess with the color. Tabatha tells him she thinks that the bangs could have been a smidgen shorter, and he replies, "I'll take it, Mommy," which makes her laugh for the first time all day. It's even funnier because he delivers the line without a hint of irony. Dee talks about McKenzie and how she gave her Dee's signature single lowlight. I don't know that as a hairdresser I would make my signature a big stripe in someone's hair, but it works here. McKenzie loves it and the only change she might make would be to lighten it back up a bit, and Kim delights in calling out, "Blondarexia!" Someone's a bit enamored of his witty catchphrase, but he's rather delightful about it so I'll let it go. Kim takes a close look at Vicki's hair and tells him that it looks exactly the same as before. To her immense credit, Vicki jumps in and says that she's, "kind of a hard client to work with." All the stylists and housewives agree by letting out a giant, embarrassed laugh. They then are all called away while the judges deliberate.
Backstage, Gail is sure that she's going home and says her goodbyes to the room. Back in the judging, Tabatha likes Dee's cut but not quite the color that she did, and Kim reminds us that it takes both color and cut. They all like Glenn's cut for the movement and shine. Kim doesn't like Parker's color, calling it basically a rookie mistake for going too dark for his client's blue eyes and pale skin. And everyone agrees that he made her look older. All of them love Charlie's cut and the only minor complaint is that he could have made the color a bit lighter. They all discuss Paulo's non-style. Kim says that when a client comes to him with a signature look that's fine, and he gives them the best polish. Does this mean that Paulo didn't do that? I'm guessing so, but they never really make an actual comment to that effect. And finally, all they say about Gail's haircut is that it was dry on top and had too much product on the bottom.
