Ben went with gardening shears that reminded him of what Mr. Miyagi used to trim his bonzai trees. Problem is, they were big freaking shears, and Ben's bob (is it just me or are all the hairstyles the same this week?) lacked the precision old Miyagi used to shape his trees. Ben called the style silly. I certainly didn't get any laughs from it, just a feeling that it was middle-of-the-road -- and boring.
Once again with the household scissors, there was Danna. By the way, I can't look at the scissors on my desk without having flashbacks to this disasterous challenge. Danna snipped...wait for it...wait for it -- a bob! Hers had a flip, just like most of the others, but it was perkier and dorky. Her model looked like a member of the Brady Bunch.
Anthony grabbed wire cutters because he wanted the sharpest tool. Judging by the massive amount of crap I've seen this week, he may be the sharpest tool on the set -- because his haircut was fun and fluttery and really worked.
Theodore actually cursed when he saw the choice of cutting tools. Funny, because I nearly did too when I saw his creation. He selected butcher's shears -- and they lived up to their name. His chopped layers hung awkwardly, not blending in with each other, as they should. And his attempt to mask the mess with products only made it worse. If one of these stylists is really a shear genius, he or she is going to have to take risks, pull out all stops, and be major. With the group down to eight, I hope someone will step up to the salon chair. Until next week...
