Who comes UP with this stuff?
We plopped down on the couch last night, ready to sulk and pout and hate the show now that Tabs and Tyson are gone. We hang our heads in shame for ever doubting the producers. Once Rene put his hands on his tiny little hips and announced the challenge, we perked right up.
We sit in amazement that anyone could come up with so many fun and dramalicious challenges all revolving around hair styling. No offense to the stylists out there, but we never could have predicted that this show would be so much fun.
A photo shoot with Matthew Rolston. Genius. A huge burst of fabulosity and a challenge to every designer. Those bitches were sweating their asses off last night. He may be an adorable little brushtop, but you can feel the raging bitch lurking underneath whenever he’s working.
Props to Miss Daisy! She was fun and wide-eyed and yet totally professional and on her game. She’s a joy to watch and we’re rooting for her.
Yeah, you could argue that she had the easiest look to accomplish, but it DID look amazingly hot in the end and like we said, she conducted herself perfectly, with absolutely no bumps in the road. You couldn’t say that about any of the other stylists.
Can we just say that we never really got a chance to get into it, but we really can’t stand him? Ignoring his continued insistence upon his heterosexuality (which, admittedly, is near-impossible to ignore), his constant mouthing off about his supposed superiority coupled with his complete inability to listen to anyone else just got on our last gay nerves, girls.
It’s all well and good to be confident in your abilities, but you better be able to cash that check. For the most part, Boogie never really did.
He made poor Martinique look like someone dumped a bucket of wigs on her head. It seems like almost everything he ever did had that heavily-lacquered drag queen/Dreamgirls look to it. It’s a pretty limiting aesthetic and even then, he didn’t always execute it well. It’s to the judges’ credit that they cut another “personality” and, refreshingly, they did it in part because his personality was so grating and unprofessional.
There’s some disagreement in Chez T&L regarding Ben. Tom just can’t help but root for him. He’s the quintessential underdog. NO ONE seems to think he deserves to be there. We’re not even sure he thinks so. Lorenzo agrees but then again he’s still breaking dishes over Tabs’ exit.
We admit it, we fell for the editing last night. We thought he was a goner.
Granted, we don’t necessarily agree with Matthew on this one. He seemed really impressed with the final look but we’re on Michael Carl’s side. It was pretty basic, bordering on cheesy. Sure, it made for a great shot, but it’s Matthew Rolston, for crying out loud.
Still, Ben is such a sweetheart that it’s hard not to be on his side a little bit, broken dishes notwithstanding.
Anthony’s another sweetie and because he looks great in a tight shirt, we tend to give him a bit of a free pass. He’s clearly very talented, but he seems to skirt close to screwing up as often as he does to producing something great.
We’re definitely glad to see him in the final 3, but this hair was ass. She doesn’t look retro or glamour. She looks scary. None of that hair looks like it’s attached to her head. Like she’s lying on a wigpillow.
We’ll have more to talk about – especially that reunion show – but just wanted to say congrats to our girl Tabs for winning the $10,000 viewer’s favorite prize last night. You go, Hair Witch!
