Derek J. - Hair Battle Spectacular

Ohhh Ms. Thing! That's all I have to say about this. Derek J., whom you may know from Chris Rock's documentary Good Hair or you may have seen on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is apparently set to be a judge for a new show entitled Hair Battle Spectacular.

According to The Advocate, Derek J. will be "calling the shots as a sweet yet headstrong judge on the new show Hair Battle Spectacular (Oxygen, Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time). The show is a condensed, weekly version of what would typically happen at the annual Bronner Bros. International Hair Show, where stylists go head to head in coming up with (onstage, by the way) the most whimsical, fantastical, and imaginative hair creations."

Derek sat down with The Advocate to talk about how he got into the hair industry, about the upcoming show, and about the tremendous amount of pressure they put on the first season's contestants. Fantasy hair competitions are something that stylists generally have weeks if not months to prepare for. The judges on Hair Battle Spectacular will be expecting the contestants to pull off some of the remarkable creations in a matter of hours.

I'm generally not a reality TV person but this actually appeals to me for some reason. I may be tuning in to see the chaos and craziness these individuals will have to endure to walk away as victor of the Hair Battle Spectacular. Sounds like fun.
