Season 3 of Bravo’s hit series Shear Genius is finally here! The first episode aired last Wednesday, 2/3 and like always, it definitely did not disappoint! This season started off with a bang, with Monica Wise of L Space Swimwear as guest judge!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the reality show, the 12 new contestents are competing for a $100,000 cash prize, an apprenticeship with Nexxus,
and an opporutnity to style hair for an Allure magazine photo shoot. There are generally two challenges per episode—a “Short Cut Challenge” and an “Elimination Challenge,” and the first Elimination Challenge of the season definitely upped the show’s edge factor. In this challenge, the contestants had to create sexy and sophisticated hairstyles to go with L Space Swimwear for an upcoming runway show. The guest judge was none other than Monica Wise, the creator and designer of L Space Swimwear. The models were only required to wear the swimsuit bottoms, so the hairstyles had to be creative and cover them up top. In my opinion, all of the hairstyles were cutting edge and runway worthy, but Monica Wise and the judges disagreed. The episode ended with the elimination of Joey Scandizzo from Australia being sent home.
