Iron Hair

posted by Eric3000

Shear Genius is easily one of the best hair-themed reality shows starring a former Charlie's Angel that's been on Bravo in the last year! Let's listen in on the show:

Announcer 1: "Welcome to Iron Hair. For this week's quickfire challenge the geniuses will be cutting and styling a wig."

Announcer 2: "Ooh, that sounds challenging!"

Announcer 1: "You bet! It's going to be really exciting. Shhh, they're starting. OK, everyone is playing it pretty safe to begin with; most of them are using scissors to cut the hair. Oh, wait; what's that? Someone is using a razor!"

Announcer 2: "Gosh, I hope they know what they're doing."

Announcer 1: "Yes, yes; he's doing a pretty standard razor cut to give the hair a little texture. It looks like the strategy is paying off! Wow, look at him go! I haven't seen cutting like that in ages!"

Jim Drops In To Chat.

We are thrilled that Jim dropped in to chat with all of us.
Welcome to Bravissimo Jim.

US: What's the best way to make gray hair look better?
JIM: Using a blue based shampoo will help to keep the white in your hair bright and counteract the yellow that sometimes makes grey hair look dull. Also remember to not only enhance the color but a great cut will make you stand out even more. Think of the likes of the brilliant actress Judy Dench or the spectacular model Carmen.

US: What is the one hair care product that you can't live without?
JIM: hair spray especially my favorites, each has there own benefits, bumble and bumble styling spray (this one is the best for using with a curling iron for smooth precise waves and curls), Frederic Fekkai (when I use hot rollers or hot sticks this is my pick to use on the hair) and Kerastase (a great finishing spray to keep your hair soft to the touch and shiny.

Snipped: Au Revoir, Paul-Jean

Last night we said hello…and good-bye to Paul-Jean, 29, from West Hollywood, CA.

Paul-Jean started off well enough in the Short-Cut challenge, his signature cut was ranked third behind Daisy’s and Tyson’s and was actually judge Jaclyn Smith’s favorite. In fact, in her blog, Jaclyn describes Paul-Jean’s cut as “a classic beautiful cut.”

Unfortunately, that’s where Paul-Jean’s good fortune ends.

The elimination challenge was all about creating hair art. Paul-Jean created something, alright, but it sure wasn’t art.

Paul-Jean believes that beauty emanates from the core of one’s being. And there was, indeed, something emanating from his model. Unfortunately, it looked more like the aftermath of a forest fire than beauty.

Sorry, Paul-Jean. But when you do this to a beautiful model…you’ve made your final cut.

That Looks Familiar...

Workout: Talk About Tension

Did anyone else hope that Rebecca would stab Tiffany with her chopsticks last night? Not that I'm choosing one girlfriend over the other...but all I was thinking was Jesse left too soon! Question... if Tiffany hadn't shown up would Rebecca have gotten the invite back to Jackie's?

Anyway, if you love trying to read into what's really going on in this "Jackie-Tug-of-War" as much as I do, checkout Jackie's myspace page where both Rebecca and Tiffany are listed as "friends" and love to leave comments for try to figure out where she spent her last date night!*wink*

Tonight's Episode Of Workout

From "The Dish" over on

Fans of "Work Out" know the painful fact that trainer Doug passed away earlier this year. Tonight's episode is the most poignant yet as we see him visit his ex-lover Cheo and get sick. But through the sadness, Doug's friends in Los Angeles have established The Doug Blasdell Outreach Program, and we're glad to be able to tell you about it.

The organization is hosted by the Los Angeles City College Foundation (LACC). All donations will go towards student scholarships, Gay and Lesbian awareness programs, HIV education material and other initiatives. All things that Doug was very proud of. For more information, visit
