Queen B on HBS 201
Coming into the salon I felt optimistic and a bit nervous about meeting the other contestants. I know I'm talented, but this is a major competition, so these stylists are the best of the best! For the first 'Check up from the Neck up' challenge we had to make our hair piece 3 feet tall. I don't have a lot of experience with fantasy hair so I was extremely nervous. I think the time constraints ruffled my feathers because I didn't finish the piece completely. My model seemed very nice, but turned out to be quite dramatic. Derek J understood my vision and his criticism was right on. You could see the foundation and the red fabric just didn't work. It was constructive criticism, my favorite kind.

Next came the Glam Slam, in which we had to design a piece based on our favorite celebrity. My celebrity was of course the other Queen B, Beyoncé! I was so excited to have her as my inspiration. She's strong, empowering, and has a sensitive, loving side. After winning my first Glam Slam, I felt good. I knew that I was the best out of our heat. I didn't win by impressing the judges. That's my goal for next time!

When Bronx was picked to go home I was upset because she seemed like someone I could have fun with. When it came to the competitions though, I feel like it was hard for her to deliver. I love her though, and she will be missed. Until next week...
