Fantasy hair is all about breaking the limits of traditional hairstyling. It can include the use of ornaments, clothing, and props to achieve the desired look, and it’s almost always pulled to the top of the head. Fantasy hair competition pits contestants against each other to create a total look of hair, clothing and makeup, in a limited amount of time.
Hosted by actress Brooke Burns, this competition series pits ten of America’s best stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design.
Part sculpture and part pop art, each challenge requires contestants to create shocking coifs that resemble everything from multi-layer bridal cakes to toys with moveable pieces. The stylists then enter the ring to present their hair creations in a fully produced, dramatic and stylized performance. After each challenge, the judges critique the designers on creativity, execution and overall presentation.
In addition to blow-by-blow drama in the arena, there is also the day-to-day drama between the cohabitating stylists who fight each week to stay in the game and win the ultimate prize of $100,000.
“Hair Battle Spectacular” is produced by three Ball Productions with JD Roth, Todd Nelson, Adam Greener, and Mike Nichols serving as executive producers.
