Hi there, I'm Roy Teeluck. I've been a hair stylist for over two decades and worked with icons, celebrities and beautiful women from London to Los Angeles, New York to Paris. I have my own salon in New York City, the Roy Teeluck Salon, where I see most of my regular clients, but I frequently travel to work on fashion shows, photo shoots and celebrity award shows. I've been the NexxusÃ‚Â® Salon Hair Care lead stylist for a couple of years, which keeps me pretty busy and got me involved with BRAVO's Shear Genius. I'll be on the show each week, providing tips for proper hair care, innovative styling and explaining how you can all emulate the frequently extravagant styles that you see in the challenges.
In addition to the prize money furnished by Nexxus and the spread in Allure, the winner of the show will also have the opportunity to work as my apprentice. So, obviously, I'm taking an interest in the competition too! I'm excited to see that we have such a great variety of contestants. They're from almost all the corners of the world, and they all have their own unique approach. It's anybody's game, so we'll see how things develop. What took me by surprise in this week's episode was the asymmetric theme that showed up in the "short cut" challenge. We don't see many asymmetrical looks in high-end hair - those are the styles you see in Manhattan's East Village and London's Soho. There were some really great cuts in there though, and styling on a mannequin is not an easy task.
