Janine and Matthew are up first with Tangled in Romance and Janine sees that the judges are there taking notes. She's stoked because she and Matthew work together so well and she's happy with her pirate guy and her girl's wavy, sexy hair. Janine and Matthew are having fun, and it totally shows. Next up are Adee and Faatemah with The Heart-Shaped Tempest. Adee thinks the guy's hair is sexy, but I find his single braid pigtail kind of odd. He complains (of course) that he didn't have any time to show the photographer how he wanted the shot laid out, but I have to say that Matthew and Janine didn't seem to have a problem so he might just try to get his shit done. The girl's hair is in a strange bouffant up top with a braid wrapped around, and then it's long in back. Jonathan Antin comments that it looks like she has two cinnabuns on her head. Hey, it's just what Kim was looking for last week, only too late! Wah-waaaah. Faatemah isn't happy with how it turned out and is sad she couldn't take down her girl's hair, and the judges look extremely skeptical of it all.
April and Jon are up next, with Roped Into You. April loves her big, extensioned hair, and I have to say it looks awesome and sexy in big, messy curls. Jon is darting in and out between photos to fix things, and while he seems sort of manic the judges are impressed that he's really working. The guy's hair is suitably Fabio for their cover, all big and blown out. Amy and Brian then have their turn with "Red Feather Reservations." The female model also has just big, wavy, sexy hair that's loose, while the guy looks a little bit crazy, all teased and super high up top with a thin headband wrapped around in which I assume is the red feather, though I can't see it from this angle. Brian talks to his models about their inspiration, which is hilarious as he's reminding the girl how long it's been since she's seen her man, but the problem is he's not doing much with the hair. Finally, Brig comes up with The Spiral of My Emotion. She got her female model's hair curled, but it's not as big and sexy as some of the others, though I'll give her that she had to do the spiral curls based on the title. She just maybe could have... shaken them out more? I don't know, this seems a little old-timey picture at the fair to me. She admits to being a little intimidated on set, and then admits that the girl's hair isn't where it was supposed to or needs to be. Jonathan doesn't like her guy's hair, which just looks like it needs a good wash, hanging all lank and boring, and... is that a braid? Oh lord, she also has a piece of it in a braid. I feel like that's never a good idea on a man, romance novel or not. Brig interviews that she knows everyone wants to see her go, but she's there to fight for her spot.
