The second season of Bravo's Shear Genius premieres tonight at 10 p.m.
The reason I watch Shear Genius? Former Charlie's Angel Jaclyn Smith hosts the haircutting competition. And, little known fact, I, Jaclyn (Jacki) Garfinkel, am named after the angel herself. (Which is also why the picture on the left excites me so much!)
The reason you should watch Shear Genius? First, if you like Top Chef or Project Runway, there's a great chance you'll enjoy Shear Genius, as Bravo seems to know a thing or two about turning a reality show into gold. Second, the cast is a bunch of charactersâ€”all creative, all artists, all people who think their hair designs are the best. This, of course, equals drama! Third, so many of us ladies are our hair, and the show will give you tons of tips and ideas for how you may want to make over your style.
Yesterday I attended the Shear Genius event in NYC with Ysolt, the Beauty & Style producer/my event buddy. At the event, each stylist had their own mini hair boutique set up (with some crazy chairs -- see the photo after the jump), and they gave blow outs to those lucky fans who waited in line in the rain and sun.
