While I don't really, REALLY disagree with the decision to cut Daniel, it was kind of unfortunate, because I don't think anybody really did a good job today. The photographer was mostly to blame IMO. He was vague, didn't really give them much direction, and then acted like an a**hole when they didn't produce what he wanted.
Honestly, Charlie's was simply the best of the worst. The guy didn't really seem to truly LIKE any of them.
Personally, I liked Nicole's winter hair. I didn't see what the big deal was with having snow in the hair -- she was laying in snow, after all. I liked Daniel's summer look enough too; the red braid really wasn't necessary, but I don't see why the guy was so annoyed with it; it was in the back of her hair anyway (which they kept restating).
Dee's Autumn look wasn't great, but the girl didn't have a great head of hair to work with, what with the bangs she had coming in and whatnot. And Charlie's spring look really was just typical looking to me. It looked like something Paulo would do (I bet he would have done WELL in this challenge!)...it just looked like a frizzball pinned up in random places with flowers. Again, best of the worst.
So I guess technically it was right for Daniel to go home, but Dee's work wasn't up to par either, though the hair she was given wasn't much. So I dunno. Toss-up, I guess. I was kind of hoping Charlie would go home...
For some reason, the judges seemed a little quiet to me tonight. Linda Wells really seemed tired or something...or nicer maybe. She was a lot more edgy, blunt and mean last season. Today she was rather mellow. Kim Vo was typical catty Kim Vo though. But they seemed a little softer or quieter or something. And the shortcut challenge was weird because to me nobody really changed the looks much and the challenge felt rushed, most likely to leave room for the photo shoot thing.
Unfortunately, it's looking like Charlie might take the whole thing. I really hope it ends up being Nicole or Dee, but I dunno. The previews made it look like Dee pulls a Daisy on the finale and is scrambling, and Nicole just may not be able to stack up to Charlie since they all seem to love him so much.
But I'm hoping Dee or Nicole wins, and would have rather liked to see Daniel, Dee and Nicole in the final 3, but unfortunately Charlie did do a decent job on the photo shoot, so he's in the final 3
