We start off the show by seeing super-clumsy-girl (Sarah) talk about how it sucked to be up for elimination and how she has to do better, etc.
Next, the girls receive Tyra mail that is definitely not cryptic this time… it talks about crying and hairy situation so the girls all know that this is makeover time. Most girls seem excited yet scared at the prospect. It’s perfectly normal. Then, super-pageant-girl (Cassandra) declared that she thinks that she presents well and that she has a natural beauty about herself so she doesn’t think that they will do much to her. Oh, honey! How clueless you are! Obviously, because of your history and your past and how you look just like an average pageant girl, they will do tons to your hair (plus we saw in the preview that you will cry over your hair).
The next morning, the girls go to a renown hair salon where they are met by super-makeup-dude (Jay Manuel) and Tyra and they are told what their looks will be. All of the girls look like they are happy with whatever they were told (good for you, girls), except for super-pageant-girl (Cassandra). Tyra tells her that Miss Pageant has to stop being so pageanty and nice so she tells her that they want to see the real her more and they think that she is so beautiful that she can pull it off. Super-pageant-girl is asked whether she has seen the movie Rosemary’s Baby. She replies that she has not. So, Tyra informs super-pageant-girl that she wants her hair to be like that, i.e., reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally short and bleached blonde. Super-pageant-girl starts sobbing. Tyra asks what is wrong. Super-pageant-girl replies that she loves her hair. Tyra tells her that her hair can always grow back (duh!) and invites her to trust them.
So, now we see the real reactions of the girls. Most of them were indeed very pleased. Super-clueless-girl (Lisa), though, is a bit disappointed. She wished that they would have done something more drastic with her hair. She tells the camera that she is like Linda Evangelista, man! Super-pageant-girl (Cassandra) sobs all through the time that they cut her hair. Super-flower-girl (Ebony; I’m going to have to change her nickname because she no longer has a flower in her hair; okay, super-braids-girl because that’s what they are adding to her hair) says that it is the first time that they see an actual emotion in super-pageant-girl; for the first time, she looks somewhat human! These makeover things are taking a long time since a lot of the girls will have extensions in their hair! Ich! For example, super-braids-girl’s hair took like 13 hours to do!
This time, along with the hair makeover, super-makeup-dude (Jay Manuel) instructs each girl on their new style that they have to emulate. After the makeovers, the girls will have a photo taken and that’s when they need to emulate their style. We see before and after pictures. Oh no! Now I want a makeover! The girls look so much more glamorous, it’s incredible! So, here were the styles:
• Super-cheese-girl (Bre) will be “ghetto fabulous.”
• Super-kitty-girl (formerly known as “super-whiny-girl”; she doesn’t whine anymore; Nicole) will be “90s wide-eyed supermodel.”
• Super-clueless-girl (Lisa) will be “supermodel with a twist.”
• Super-clumsy-girl (Sarah) will be “Ralph Lauren chic.”
• Super-Twiggy-like-girl (Kim) is told to remain herself, “femme boy.”
• Super-corrupted-girl (Jayla) will be “Yves St-Laurent chic.”
• Super-sexy-plus-girl (Diane) will be “dressy casual.”
• Super-eyebrows-girl (Coryn) will be “sophisticated.”
• Super-Dairy-Queen-girl (Kyle) will be “Chanel with an edge.”
• Super-frizzy-girl (Nik) will be “bohemian chic.”
• Super-braids-girl (Ebony) will be “sophisticated with an edge.”
• Super-pageant-girl (Cassandra) will be “edgy with a mod look.”
Back at the home, they have Tyra mail that is kind of cryptic again but implies shopping. That evening, super-pageant-girl (Cassandra) incessantly talks about her hair and she says that maybe she will sleep with the hair that they cut just so that she will feel more comfortable and she hopes that the new hair will work for her and on and on and on. Well, honey, look at yourself in the mirror! Oh, and, by the way, when she talks off camera now, she reminds me so much of a blonde version of Yoanna! Oh my!
