Short Cut #8 Kids Jaclyn was waiting in the salon as usual, (today she was a vision in Miu Miu though! Chic!) Our guest judge was the guy who does hair for American Idol (he was responsible for Sanjaya's "ponyhawk") Also, a dead ringer for Pavarotti. They said our clients were another tricky bunch -- then a group of screaming first graders rush out and hug each of us -- they scared me, but I got a really cute girl named Caya. She immediately announced, "I'm not a molecule nervous." WOW, precious little one. She had waist-length, fine blond hair -- I asked her if she like braids. "NO," she said, unequivocally. In honor of Miss Sanjaya, I did a double pony. I wrapped the ponytails in hair to cover the bands, and I curled the ends and bangs. GORGEOUS. The guest judge loved it! Daniel won first place, I was second -- WOOHOO! Dee was in the bottom finally! Par-tay! So was Paulo again. Three in a row.
Elimination #8 Family We had all kinds of ideas about what this challenge would be -- so when Rene said, "meet your clients," I was FLOORED when my sister Kelly walked in. Everyone cried when they saw their family, but I was just so HAPPY. My sister and I are very close and I was thrilled to see her. YAAAAYY!! Of course, there is a twist -- we have to do OTHER peoples' family! DUN DUN DUN. Daniel picks first and then assigns me his mom -- LOL! For Sandra, I reworked her blonde color and gave her a longer version of Sharon Stone's short cut (because of her asymmetric ears.) SHE LOVED IT! Paulo got my sister Kelly and made her hair a little darker and ashier.
