If someone has long hair what is a great way for them to put it up and make it fancy?
Put it in a ponytail. You can braid it, and then rap it in a bun. But my recommendation is to CUT it. It is too much upkeep and there is not a lot of style you can do. Long can be good but too long isn't.
Was there an advantage for the contestants who got models with the longer hair?
I think the longer hair was harder. Long hair has too much weight -- you need to use lots of pins. I think the clients are better off cutting it to a manageable length.
What is fantasy hair?
It is something you might see on an editorial or a runway. It's not something you would wear to work. To have fantasy hair you need a great stylist.
Who stepped up during the red carpet challenge?
I liked Gail's style. It was simple and chic. You saw the girl's face before the hairstyle. I think that Gail really stepped up and I expect to see greatness from her.
Were there any surprises?
I was not overly impressed with these hairstyles. This was my least favorite of the competitions. Besides for Charlie and Gail's haircuts, I would rather stay home than wear any of the other hairstyles. From such a talented group I expected more.
