Linda Wells from Allure sits down in the audience with our regular judges and Henry, and Camila comes out on the runway to introduce the show. [Jonathan looks like James Bond in his white jacket and bow tie. - Zach] Brig's models are up first, and I had to pause the TV to really get a look at the first girl's hair. When she's walking, it looks to me like she's still got foils or something in her hair for coloring. Actually, she's got green and black curly hair framing her face, and then green, black and magenta laminated pieces coming from the hair and sticking straight back. Her hair is then pulled into a bun which is surrounded by another piece of laminate. I'll give her that it's really interesting, but I don't know that it works well when you don't have the ability to pause and study it. The next model looks like she has extensions taped to her head and then hanging towards her face. There are more variations on those styles, and then finally a model who comes out just with a piece of laminate taped over the top of her head, with a tiny sliver of magenta hair taped to that right at one temple. As Matthew says, the styles are super creative but not very "hairy." I have absolutely no idea how the judges are going to react to these looks.
Matthew's girls are out next. His first model is very similar to Janine's, actually -- her hair is all slicked back on the top and sides and then explodes into frizzy, cherry red curls. The next one is really cool -- it's a mohawk made of about six ponytails, each bound with a few inches of what I think is wire and leather before the hair sprouts out, and then there are zippers laid over her head in between each of the little ponies.[It's like a bondage version of the Sanjaya. - Z] The next model looks similar to the first, but the top of her hair is pulled back in cornrows with leather in between each braid and then it's been made kind of into dreadlocks. Then comes one of his skullcap models -- unfortunately, you can totally see the edge of the cap on her forehead. She's got a short, angled bob that follows the line of her chin, and then a frizzy ponytail sprouting up top. The next model's cap is hidden much better, and she's got long, wavy blonde hair on either side with a tiny black fringe on her forehead that's like a Hitler moustache and then a frizzy black ponytail up top and a zipper in back. His last model has a crazy giant frizzy mohawk with extensions that go almost to the floor, and zippers from her ear to the mohawk.
