This year has been an amazing one for me. If being selected as a contestant on Shear Genius 3
wasn't enough, I've got a lot more to look forward to. I am honored to
be nominated for Editorial Stylist of the Year NAHA! I will also be the
opening of this year's star-studded event with a runway show!

As a brown girl, I can say we are very particular about our hair
and especially our curly edges! Camilla proves to be the toughest
client yet throughout his competition. With only 45 minutes on the
clock, contestants are to style her hair for a red-carpet event.
Camilla's texture not only makes this difficult but her constant
interrogation of the stylists seem to make them nervous. Jon burns her,
Brig gives her a style suited for an adolescent and Matthew and Janine
nail it. Matthew wins this challenge.

The last episode of Shear Genius 3 left me dazed and confused. With four contestants left ... a crazy twist. No one was eliminated. Instead
of recapping episodes you should be watching, this week, I wanted to do
something different. I'd like to share some behind the scenes fun. The
entire cast had nicknames courtesy of Jon and myself.

This week, stylists were put to the test with an African American
clientele. I strongly feel that every stylist should challenge
themselves to be able to service every client regardless of their
ethnicity. Hair is not a race–it is fabric so deal with it
accordingly. As stylists we are hair tailors.

This week's episode of Shear Genius 3 was not the most exciting for me.
The highlight for me was the sexy accent of guest judge Moulay
Yacboui. For the shortcut challenge contestants were asked to dry cut
curly hair into a graduated bob.
