wow! Awesome write up on this episode and spot on analysis of each stylist throughout the season. I think people don't `get' that Brig's choice in hair styles aren't suppossed to be wearable. They are designs and concepts. They mistake her avant garde style for incompetance-but she's not there to be a traditional stylist (even though as a salon owner she caters to that market on a daily basis) and when she did the branding challenge she hit the ball out of the park precisly because her models and her own look dovetailed together perfectly. mathew was just another guy smiling out from a photo and i had no sense of what his `brand' is as the models looked indistinguishable from any other competent stylists work. I mean, I didn't think to myself, the guy is awesome, I have to go get my hair done by him. It was very middling and yes, he looked like a real estate agent for all I knew.Originally Posted by Harmony2000;3868548;
janine, just ridiculous. The purple hair thing was something any post punk goth kid could do. her photo of herself reminded me of a photo one has taken as a `family portrait.' It had nothing to do with telling a story as to who she is as a stylist.
Again, awesome write up! Thanks!
