Great Hair: It's All About Confidence
You know what's worse than a bad idea? Not following through with it. In this Elimination Challenge, Gail's soccer mom bob showed a lack of commitment to her vision, and her neither-here-nor-there execution was ultimately what sent her packing. But it happens. New stylists like Gail sometimes lack the confidence to be decisive, and can second-guess themselves, changing direction halfway through rather than drumming up the courage to follow through with their own ideas. Compare Gail's edgy personal style with her the look of her styling work--which vision really represents her? I wish we knew.

Hairstylist Luigi Murenu, who creates some of the most memorable looks for the runways, magazines, and celebrities, is a firm believer in expressing yourself through your hairstyle.
